PRIM&R recently submitted comments in response to National Institutes of Health (NIH)’s March 14 request for information (RFI) on how best to improve the coordination of regulations and policies with respect to research with laboratory animals as prompted by a mandate in the 21st Century Cures Act. Comments on the RFI are due June 12, and I wanted to share what PRIM&R submitted in case the comments are helpful as you consider developing and submitting your own comments to NIH, which is coordinating the RFI with the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Riddle, PhD (Chief, Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Branch, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research) and Cindy S. Shindledecker, CIP (Director, Health Sciences and Behavioral Sciences Institutional Review Board, University of Michigan). Dr. Riddle was absent, but her colleague Wendy Webber, ND, PhD, MPH (Acting Deputy Director, National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health) was able to do an impromptu presentation on behalf of NIH. She offered guidance on how to interpret the NIH definition of clinical trials by breaking down its various components.   Read more

On March 14, 2018, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in coordination with USDA and FDA, published a 90-day request for comments “seeking information to improve the coordination of regulations and policies with respect to research with laboratory animals as required by the 21st Century Cures Act, Section 2034(d).” The animal research community now has an important opportunity to address long-standing concerns about regulatory burden—requirements that add administrative work without enhancing animal welfare or good science—and to help shape the future of animal research regulations. I urge you to take this opportunity to share with the federal regulators your ideas about how we can best streamline regulatory and administrative inefficiencies that don’t promote animal welfare or good science.  Read more
