Three Topics to Consider When
Planning Your Research
• Research vs. the practice of medicine
• Coverage analysis for tests and procedures in
research studies
• Clinical trial registration
Clinical Research vs.
Practice of Medicine
• FDA does not regulate the practice of medicine
• Arkansas State Medical Board does not regulate clinical
research
• For clinical care, physicians may prescribe “off-label” any
approved drug, biological, or medical device
• Approved drugs used in a new population or for a new
indication may require an IND if used in research
• Unapproved drugs and biologicals used in research
require an IND or an exemption
• Unapproved devices used in clinical research require an
IDE or other clearance from the FDA
Coverage Analysis
• Coverage analysis is a determination, based on CMS
rules, as to whether or not services that are normally
billable to patients can be charged to subjects enrolled
in a research study.
• Third party payors may or may not pay for services that
are provided as part of a research study even if those
same services would be billable as part of routine care
if the subject was not a research participant.
• At UAMS, all research studies that include medical
procedures, drugs, clinic visits, or laboratory studies
must undergo coverage analysis.

Clinical Trials Registration at UAMS
• The sponsor is required to register the trial
– Industry-sponsored and cooperative group trials
will be registered by outside entities (sponsors)
– Investigator-initiated trials meeting the above
criteria must be registered by UAMS (and the PI)
– RSC will help with registration
• If not registered properly, you may not be able
to publish your data
Final Thoughts
• Contact us if you are going to conduct
investigator-initiated research
• Research is NOT the practice of medicine; the
regulatory requirements are different
• We are not the Institutional Review Board nor
are we Research Compliance
• We are here to assist you in getting your
research up and running correctly
