Data Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC)

Take Action at the Cancer Center

The Cancer Center Data Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMC), in cooperation with the UIC Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and the Office for the Protection of Research Subjects, provides for the safety review of selective cancer-related protocols annually. Individuals from multiple oncology and healthcare disciplines serve as members of the committee. This diverse composition assures a multidisciplinary approach to safety review.

The DSMC provides review of UI investigator-initiated cancer clinical trials at a frequency determined by the University of Illinois Cancer Center Protocol Review Committee (PRC). The frequency of trial DSMC review ranges from quarterly to annually, according to the level of risk assigned to the study by the PRC.

DSMC review specifically focuses on review of the safety monitoring plan of a protocol to ensure the safety of participants and the validity and integrity of the data. The DSMC meets monthly. Depending on the needs of the studies under the DSMC’s purview, additional ad hoc DSMC meetings may occur.

Data Safety Monitoring Plan (DSMP) *Version 11 is effective and released.
