This UK report on risk adaptive approaches to the management of clinical trials of investigational medicinal products may provide practical ideas as to how pragmatic approaches can be implemented in studies. It complements existing waivers that exist for non-commercial trials.
Please note that KCE shall remain entitled at all times to postpone, suspend and/or withdraw any research call (even during the negotiation of the research agreement) upon its own discretion and that KCE shall under no circumstances be obliged to select any pending Full Research Proposal (FRP) or enter into a research agreement after FRP selection. Candidate sponsors can withdraw their submission at any time before signature of the research agreement.
KCE Trials does not only cover clinical trials that are commissioned by KCE. In addition, KCE Trials intends to provide financial support for the participation of Belgian centres to certain international clinical trials that complement KCE’s mission statement. In such cases, KCE’s role will mainly be to assist the (international) study sponsor with the coordination of the participation of certain Belgian centres through a Belgian coordinating centre (BCC) and to fund well-specified BCC activities that are not covered by other funding.
In this context, KCE intends to provide selected additional funding for the following studies, which already received funding from ZonMw in the Netherlands.

For each of the three studies, a BCC has been identified by the Sponsor and contract negations have started. On October 12th, 2016, the first contract for Belgian participation to a ZonMw study was signed for the study on reducing vincristine-induced peripheral neuropathy in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
