URCC10054 Curcumin Study Amendment 2 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sebastien Estaque   
Tuesday, 28 June 2011 08:08

Amendment 2 dated 6/15/11 is ready for you to download and submit to your IRBs. 

The changes incorporated in Amendment 2 are the result of questions and feedback that we have received from you, our CCOP affiliates, over the last few months.  This amendment should clarify procedures and reduce data collection errors for you, and scanning problems for us here at the research base.  The protocol, consent form for blood draw, and many of the data collection forms have changed as a result of this amendment.

Please download and submit to your IRBs for approval. If you have any problems downloading these documents, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

·       Each person administering the cognitive tests must be trained.  This training will involve review of the computerized and paper/pencil tasks.  After the training is completed, practice all computerized and paper and pencil cognitive assessments, and email a test copy of your computerized results to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We will confirm receipt of the practice copy and forward an approval. Once approved, you may begin assessing participants on study.  

·         Many of you received training in the computerized cognitive testing at our annual meeting last September, or were trained during a URCC on-site audit.  You can review the training videos on our website, and/or schedule a teleconference to go over the testing.  Then you can submit a sample test.
