Serious Adverse Event Reporting Form, Gene Transfer Protocol

Reporting of serious adverse events to the FDA, NIH OBA/RAC, the UVA Human Investigation Committee(HIC), and the UVA Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) is a critical element of the Federal and institutional oversight of human gene transfer research. This form is provided to facilitate complete and standardized adverse event reporting.

A Serious Adverse Event is defined as:
“any expected or unexpected adverse event, related or unrelated to the intervention, occurring at any dose that results in any of the following outcomes; death, a life-threatening event, in-patient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, a persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect. Important medical events that may not result in death, be life-threatening, or require hospitalization also may be considered a serious adverse event when, based upon appropriate medical judgment, they may jeopardize the human gene transfer research subject and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed in this definition.
