TO:  IDEAS Study Referring Practices

As you are aware, the study closed to enrollment on December 6, 2017 with the final PET scans to be conducted by mid-January and all PET assessments/interpretations to be submitted 7 days later.  ACRIN 7155 IDEAS Study will close to data submission on January 31, 2018.

Please submit a final closure report to the institutional review board (IRB) providing oversight for the research.  A final closure report should be submitted once all protocol related activities are completed and all data have been submitted.  If your IRB approval expires without a report submitted, such action may be considered non-compliance and could affect your involvement in future research.
