AIBILI has an Independent Ethics Committee (IEC/IRB) that is responsible for protecting the rights, safety and wellbeing of human subjects involved in clinical studies (not involving Investigational Medicinal Products (IMP’s) or medical devices) performed at AIBILI according to the Portuguese Law nº 97/95 of 10 May, repealed by Law nº 80/2018, 15 October.
In 2018, AIBILI Ethics Committee has reviewed and approved one ophthalmological clinical study and was kept informed of the approval of three new clinical trials submitted to the National Ethics Committee for Clinical Research (CEIC).
AIBILI Ethics Committee is available to be called upon CEIC’s request, in case it is needed for the review of ophthalmology clinical trials or studies since it has expertise in this scientific area.
