Procedure to initiate Investigator-initiated trials through NSGO-CTU:


1.      All new proposals shall be submitted to the NSGO-CTU Scientific Committee for scientific approval. If the proposal is initiated outside NSGO-CTU countries, it should be supported by the cooperative group of country of origin.


2.      Basic finances to initiate and run the trial shall be in place before any further activity is planned. If there is no financial support to cover the basic expenses for Nordic involvement, we shall only perform tentative survey of interest within the NSGO-CTU Scientific Committee.


3.      Once there is grants available for the specific trial, proper feasibility and trial initiation will be planned.


4.      The priority of trials is performed by Medical Director together with the Scientific Strategic Group of NSGO-CTU.
