SPONSOR/MONITOR ISSUES
Site 01: At this site, there was documentation showing three protocol deviations for Protocol FCRP-0106, Amendment #1, but these deviations were not included in the submission to the FDA by the sponsor.
Site 02: No sponsor or monitoring issues were noted at this site.

NOTEWORTHY INSPECTIONAL FINDINGS
The inspections at Site 01 and Site 02 revealed no deviations from applicable regulations.
Site 03: There were only a few minor problems noted. Ten of 33 subjects participating in the study were not consented properly. Eight subjects were given the incorrect version of the informed consent document, and two subjects were given a revised version that lacked the additional risk information included in the previous version. Also, the lot number of Platelet Additive Solution III was not recorded at the time of use as required by amendment 1 of the protocol.

BIMO ADMINISTRATIVE FOLLOW-UP
Inspection closeout letters were issued to the clinical investigators at all three of the study sites. Please contact me at (301) 827-6336 if you have any questions about this memo or any aspect of bioresearch monitoring.
