A federal judge has granted a sentencing delay for a Kansas researcher who admitted falsifying data in a 2010 clinical trial of an allergy pill on human subjects.

Lisa Sharp, a nurse from Olathe, had been scheduled for sentencing March 5, but a judge on Wednesday moved the proceeding to March 23. Sharp's co-defendant, Topeka physician Wayne Spencer, will still be sentenced March 5.

Both defendants worked for Lee Research Institute, which was paid by Schering-Plough to conduct the clinical trial on the allergy medication. Spencer was the principal investigator and Sharp was the lead research coordinator.

They pleaded to conspiracy to defraud and failing to maintain records in a clinical trial as required by the Food and Drug Administration.
