Unanticipated Problem

In general, to be classified as an unanticipated problem, any incident, experience, or outcome should meet all three of the following criteria:

(1) Unexpected (in terms of nature, severity, or frequency) given (a) the research procedures that are described in the protocol-related documents, such as the IRB-approved research protocol and informed consent document; and (b) the characteristics of the subject population being studied

(2) Related or possibly related to participation in the research (possibly related means there is a reasonable possibility that the incident, experience, or outcome may have been caused by the procedures involved in the research)

(3) Likely to place subjects or others at greater risk of harm (including physical, psychological, economic, or social harm) than was previously known or recognized.
