  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are developing a template with instructional and sample text for investigators to use in writing ls that require Investigational New Drug application (IND) or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) applications. The agencies’ goal is to encourage and make it easier for investigators to prepare protocols that are consistently organized and contain all the information necessary for the clinical trial to be properly reviewed. The draft template follows the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E6 Good Clinical Practice. This template may also be used as a guide for other types or phases of studies.
