Permanent Study Closure

A study should be permanently closed, if:
  • The study was never initiated and there are no plans to do so in the future.
  • The research project is no longer collecting data about research participants, which includes entering, collecting and verifying data, and there is no longer a need to obtain more data for the research project.
  • The study is interrupted unexpectedly (e.g., the sponsor withdraws support, the investigational agent is no longer available, etc.).
 A study closure report should be submitted in ROMEO.
