TGA – Online CTN Scheme
Please submit CTN submissions via the TGA Business Services website.
Studies under CTN
The Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) reviews the scientific validity of the trial design, the balance of risk versus harm of the therapeutic good, the ethical acceptability of the trial process, and approves the trial protocol. The HREC is also responsible for monitoring the conduct of the trial.
The institution or organisation at which the trial will be conducted, referred to as the ‘Approving Authority’, gives the final approval for the conduct of the trial at the site, having due regard to advice from the HREC.
It is the responsibility of the sponsor to ensure that all relevant approvals are in place before supplying the ‘unapproved’ therapeutic goods in the clinical trial.
Studies under CTX
A sponsor applies to the HREC seeking approval to supply ‘unapproved’ therapeutic goods in a clinical trial. Bellberry evaluate summary information about the product including relevant, but limited, scientific data (which may be preclinical and early clinical data) prior to the start of a trial.
The HREC is responsible for considering the scientific and ethical issues of the proposed trial protocol.
The sponsor must notify Bellberry of each trial conducted using the unapproved therapeutic good(s) approved in the CTX application.
