DCRI-BMS Data Sharing Initiative

The DCRI has partnered with Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) to expand access to clinical trial information from BMS-sponsored studies. Clinical trial information being made available for scientific research through SOAR™ includes protocols, full clinical study reports and de-identified patient-level data and study-level data Phase II-IV interventional clinical trials that completed on or after January 1, 2008. In addition, primary results from these trials must have been published in peer-reviewed journals and the medicines or indications approved in the U.S., EU, and other designated markets. Other criteria may apply, for details please visit Bristol Myers Squibb at www.vivli.org

Request Data

Data Governance

Each proposal is quickly reviewed by an Independent Review Committee with expertise in biostatistics, research ethics, patient privacy, and the clinical specialty of the research to evaluate the statistical analysis plan, plan to protect patient privacy, dissemination plan and qualification of the investigator(s). The data and analytical tools are provisioned to the investigator through the Vivli Data Sharing Platform.

Data Sharing Metrics

Status Definitions

Under Review: The request/proposal is currently being reviewed internally by a qualified panel of Bristol-Myers Squibb experts. If the proposal is considered within scope, the request will undergo an additional review by the independent review committee (DCRI).

Declined/Out of Scope: the request does not meet the current requirements of the BMS Data Sharing Policy.

Approved: Passed BMS evaluation criteria and the criteria of the Independent Review Committee (DCRI).

Data Shared: Investigator has received access to the requested data, via a secure CTDT portal or the Vivli secure research environment.

Published: Public disclosure of the research results, e.g. publication in a scientific journal, poster at a scientific conference, etc.

Manuscript Submitted: Research is complete, and the resulting manuscript has been reviewed by BMS and submitted for publication to a scientific journal.

Withdrawn/Lost to Follow-Up: Researcher either has withdrawn the research proposal, at any stage, or there is no reply regarding follow-up clarifications.

****Requests are logged in these metrics to the year submitted; as a request flows through the process, the updated status is logged to the year that the request was received.
