Also in , Jesse Gelsinger, an year-old research volunteer, died in a gene transfer trial not because of his underlying disease but because of the experimental intervention itself.

As the circumstances and events leading up to his death emerged, it became apparent that the system intended to protect him from unacceptable research risks instead failed him. Trust in the human research enterprise, embodied in an individual consenting to participate in a study, and thereby assuming risks inherent in that study, demands that the system responsible for protection be credible and accountable. In policy discussions that have occurred in the wake of these The protection of individuals who volunteer to participate in research is essential to the ethical conduct of research.
Trust in the human research enterprise… demands that the system responsible for protection be credible and accountable. In response to a request from the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services DHHS , the Institute of Medicine formed a committee to conduct a two-phase study to examine how to improve the structure and function of human research participant protection programs.
This report provides the committee's response to its first task: to review and consider proposed standards for accreditation of programs that aim to protect research participants and to recommend an approach to monitoring and evaluating the total system of human participants protections. The committee's recommendations are presented in Box 1 according to the phases inherent in the development of an accreditation process. In the United States, the system of human research participants protection traditionally has centered on the institutional review board, or IRB, which is charged with independent review of research protocols to assess risks and the adequacy of protections for study participants.
In this report, the committee envisions a broader human research participant protection system than just the IRB, with multiple functional elements that in total are referred to as human research participant protection programs , or HRPPPs.

The many HRPPPs in this country make up a system with four principle functions: 1 to ensure that research design is sound and that a study's promise for augmenting knowledge justifies the involvement of human participants; 2 to assess the risks and benefits of a study independently of the investigators who carry out the research; 3 to ensure that participation in research is voluntary and informed; and 4 to ensure that participants are recruited equitably and that risks and benefits are fairly distributed.
The HRPPP, which can take many forms in many contexts, is the functional unit that would be the subject of an accreditation process. In addition to improving protections, accreditation as a mark of excellence- of achievement well beyond regulatory compliance-might offer a HRPPP a competitive advantage over nonaccredited competitors in seeking support from sponsors or access to participants, researchers, or students. The committee recommends that accreditation of HRPPPs should be pursued as one promising approach to improve the system.
The first step toward this strategy is the implementation of pilot programs to test standards, establish accreditation processes, and build confidence in accreditation organizations. The committee believes that the ideal accreditation body is a national independent organization that is credible among those seeking accreditation but independent of any particular interest group among them.
The central focus of this report is accreditation standards, the benchmarks by which accreditation programs measure achievement. Any set of standards must be flexible enough to be applicable to a variety of institutions yet rigorous enough to ensure that their enactment enhances protection of participants in human research.

High-quality HRPPs are expected to minimize risk to research participants to the extent possible while maintaining the integrity of the research. The VA health care system is the largest integrated health care system in the country. Currently, there are VA facilities conducting research involving human subjects. In addition to federal regulations governing research with human subjects, VA researchers must also comply with requirements established by the VA. As part of the VA HRPP quality assurance program, each VA research facility was required to conduct annual audits of all informed consent documents ICDs and regulatory audits of all human research protocols once every 3 years by qualified research compliance officers RCOs.
Facility RCOs were then trained to use these tools to conduct audits. Data were collected annually from all VA research facilities. No individually identifiable personal information was collected. As this was a VA quality assurance project and no individually identifiable information was collected, no IRB review and approval of the project was required.
All data collected were entered into a database for analysis. When necessary, facilities were contacted to verify the accuracy and uniformity of data reported. The Mantel-Haenszel chi-square test for trend was used to determine the trend of changes from through For those QIs with statistically significant changes, VAORO calculated the percent changes and the actual numbers impacted, ie, the actual numbers of ICDs, human research protocols, case histories, or research personnel affected by these changes.
