According To Subpart d, Research With Children May Be Eligible For Exemption Under Category 2 When:

Federal regulations require that research activities not only comply with the regulations but also with the laws of the states in which the research is carried out.   

 Exemption 45 CFR 461.01 (b) (2) for research involving survey and survey methods and the observation of public behavior does not apply to research involving children, but research under section D may be applied if research involves the observation of “public behavior” and the researchers do not participate in the activities observed.

The remaining exemptions under 45 CFR 46.101 (b (2) apply only to research involving children. The derogations do not apply if the research involves prisoners, fetuses, pregnant women, or human in vitro fertilization (research under subsections A, B, and C).    

In accordance with the general rules (45 CFR 46, subsection SS46.104), certain research categories may be exempted if the exempted research does not require full or accelerated review or authorization by the ISA. Research is exempt from review by an IRB convened if:

(1) there is only human participation in one or more of the categories of exemption referred to in this section (e.g. Prisoners); or (2) only certain activities involving children. If an exemption category requires a limited review of the ISA, the ISA may carry out that review before deciding whether there is a necessary exemption.

If the research is approved in accordance with SS46.405, permission may be required to have the consent of a single parent for a child. Filing with the MSU Human Research Protection Program after an exemption is required.

The permission for a single parent to consent to a child is applicable if necessary and the research has been approved under SS46.404. Authorizations for single parents of children are applicable and require that research under 46 years of age be authorized. 405 shares.  

 Depending on the degree of risk and other specific characteristics of research activity, there are three categories of IRB-approved research involving children.

Research activity is an integral part of a research activity if: (1) the research purpose does not serve the direct benefit of the participants; (2) the IRB has approved the research for the component; and (3) the risk does not represent more than a small increase in a minimal risk.   

 If the IRB does not consider that the proposed research fits into one of the three categories, it will authorize research with children if it represents an appropriate opportunity for further understanding, prevention, or remediation of a serious problem affecting the health or well-being of children and will forward the research to the HHS Secretary for review under the conditions set forth in section 407 of the regulations.

The research is approved by category 4 of the IRB if it fits into one of the risk or benefit categories, which requires approval from the Minister of Health and Human Services secretary.

Part D categorizes research as eligible for approval by an IRB at any risk level, regardless of whether or not there is a direct benefit. The general rules and regulations quoted on this website and in the FDA regulations listed in the right box are comparable and apply to all FDA-regulated research.  

 Exceptions 2, III, and 3 for benign behavioral interventions do not apply to research involving children. Federal law requires IRBs to classify this research into one of four categories, as documented in their discussion of the risks and benefits of research studies.

Provided that the privacy and confidentiality of the data are adequately protected, this research may be excluded from DHHS categories 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6. If the research involves deceiving a subject as to the nature or purpose of the research, this provision shall not apply unless the subject is authorized to deceive.

Authorized deception occurs when an expected consent of the subject to participate in the research exists and the subject has been informed that he or she is unaware of the nature and purpose of the research or is misled.   

The following exemptions apply to research that is subject to FDA regulations for clinical trials. Federal regulations do not specify when normal classes will take place in schools.    

The burden of proof for proving that the proposed research set qualifies and fits into the defined and accepted categories rest with the main investigator. Understanding the object of research can confuse the subject. The subject of research is the topic or problem examined in the study.
