DEFINITION

Lab findings

NOTE

The answers to the questions associated with each category of laboratory finding are based on review and discussion of laboratory results with the site physician investigator. Participants may demonstrate mild abnormalities on laboratory parameters, but such abnormalities may not be relevant to study inclusion/exclusion considerations. For example, a patient might demonstrate mild anemia, mild hyperglycemia, or other laboratory evidence of a known medical problem. Although such findings are abnormal, they are not clinically significant with respect to inclusion/exclusion decision-making for this study. Accordingly, if a laboratory finding is abnormal but not relevant to study inclusion/exclusion decision-making, then it should be coded as 'Abnormal, not clinically significant.' If a laboratory finding is abnormal and relevant to study inclusion/exclusion decision-making, then it should be coded as 'Abnormal, clinically significant.'
