Other requirements and helpful information for researchers If the LTR is not participating in the research (i.e. only conducting the linkage but not analyzing data or preparing manuscripts), IRB approval from LSUHSC is not required, because this is not considered human subjects' research for LTR. However, IRB approval would be required from the researcher's institution if human subjects' research is being conducted.
Processing timeframe
  • For linkage studies and de-identified data release: 3-6 months
  • For patient contact studies: Greater than 6 months
Patient Consent and Contact Procedures
  • Depending on the study, consent with the physician is required before patient contact. Physician consent is obtained by: Registry
  • Patient consent is obtained by: Registry
Pediatric research considerations Parent consent is required.
Registry Fees For linkage projects, the fee is calculated based on the number of records needing to be linked or staff time to complete the linkage. For patient survey projects, the fee is calculated based on staff time, supplies, and other related costs.

Exceptions: There is no charge for aggregated data requests or case-level data requests in which LTR investigators are included as collaborators.
IRB Fees

Exceptions: IRB Protocol Review Fee Policy: It is the policy of LSUHSC-NO to charge for IRB review of industry-sponsored studies as a mechanism to support the administrative costs of such reviews. Non LSUHSC-NO sites in federally sponsored multicenter clinical research studies for which the LSUHSC-NO IRB has agreed to provide oversight as the Single IRB of record are also charged fees to cover costs that would not otherwise be incurred.
Collaboration with local researcher required Yes
