What is a Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB)?

A Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) is an independent group of experts responsible for monitoring and assessing the safety and efficacy of clinical trials. Their primary role is to ensure the well-being of trial participants and the credibility of trial results.

In essence, a DSMB acts as the vigilant guardian of clinical trial integrity. Comprised of seasoned professionals in various relevant fields, this independent panel conducts impartial evaluations of trial data, scrutinizing safety measures, and assessing the effectiveness of investigational treatments. By maintaining objectivity and rigor, DSMBs play a pivotal role in not only safeguarding the health and rights of trial participants but also in upholding the scientific rigor of clinical research, thereby bolstering the credibility of trial outcomes.
