Meeting Date: 6/7/12-6/7/12

Meeting Details:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled “Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy Assessments: Social Science Methodologies to Assess Goals Related to Knowledge.” The purpose of the public workshop is to initiate constructive dialogue and information-sharing among regulators, researchers, the pharmaceutical industry, health care organizations, health care providers, and others from the general public about survey methodologies and instruments that can be used to evaluate patients’ and health care providers’ knowledge about the risks of drugs marketed with an approved REMS. The input from this workshop will be used to develop guidance for industry describing best practices for conducting an assessment of a REMS goal regarding patient and/or health care provider knowledge about a drug’s risk(s). To assist in the workshop discussion and the ultimate development of the guidance, FDA is making available an issue paper that discusses our experience with knowledge assessments for REMS and contains specific questions we hope to receive input on.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsOverview of the ECG Warehouse and Review Process

Meeting Date: 9/30/05-9/30/05

Meeting Details:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled: Overview of the ECG Warehouse and Review Process. The purpose of the workshop is to communicate to industry the logistics of ECG waveform review as a part of the application review process. The ECG Warehouse, an annotated Electrocardiogram waveform data (aECG) storage and review system, is being incorporated into the FDA’s set of tools. This workshop will inform industry how to make aECG source data available to reviewers through the ECG Warehouse. This workshop will also overview the types of information the ECG Warehouse provides reviewers and will give examples of problematic aECGs already found. Traditionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received only summary representations of electrocardiogram data for the analysis of safety and efficacy of products. The FDA is interested in improving the evaluation of specific drug-induced cardiac toxicity by evaluating ECG waveform data with detailed, sponsor-generated annotations from the full spectrum of ECG devices including 12-lead standard ECG, Holter monitors, and implanted devices. The FDA entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Mortara Instrument, Inc. to develop a data warehouse application and viewing tool for aECG in the format specified in the Health Level Seven standard accredited by the American National Standards Institute. A web-based system supports communication with the sponsor for uploading, receipt, validation, transformation, and warehousing of aECG source data. The warehouse enables the FDA to evaluate aECG source data for evidence of cardiac toxicity and the viewing tool allows reviewers to selectively display waveforms and annotations. FDA is holding a public meeting to communicate the availability of the ECG Warehouse for FDA reviewers and the need for industry to upload aECGs into it. The agenda for this meeting, which will include an overview of the software capabilities and examples of problematic aECGs, will be available on the Internet at http://www.fda.gov/cder/regulatory/ersr/default.htm before the meeting.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsInternational Symposium on Combination Vaccines

Meeting Date: 2/2/00-2/4/00

Meeting Details:

The 3-day International Symposium on Combination Vaccines will explore the laboratory, clinical, and epidemiologic issues that are integral to the development and licensing of new combination vaccines that are both safe and effective. Increased complexity of the recommended childhood immunization schedule has heightened demand for additional combination vaccines that will convey immunity to more than one antigen. Many important benefits can be derived from the use of combination vaccines, including higher rates of immunization—particularly among less accessible populations—and reduced costs. However, a series of scientific and practical challenges will need to be addressed to expedite the widespread development of safe and effective combination vaccines.Among these challenges are (1) the potential for diminished immune response, (2) development, acceptance, and use of correlates of protection, (3) design and analysis of studies to evaluate safety (4) considerations for simultaneous administration, (5) manufacturing, product testing, and preclinical (animal) evaluation, and (6) challenges to use of combination vaccines.

Meeting Details:

On October 8, the committee will discuss, make recommendations and vote on information related to the premarket approval application regarding the Boston Scientific Corporation’s WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Closure Technology. FDA is seeking committee review and recommendations regarding new clinical data and associated additional adverse events including stroke that have become available since the previous advisory committee meeting on the WATCHMAN device, which was held December 11, 2013. The WATCHMAN LAA Closure Technology is a percutaneously delivered permanent cardiac implant placed in the left atrial appendage. This device is indicated to prevent thromboembolism (TE) from the left atrial appendage. It may be considered for use in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation who are eligible for warfarin therapy to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism based on CHADS2 (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age >75 years, diabetes, and prior stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA)) or CHA2DS2-VASc (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age >75 years, diabetes mellitus, stroke/TIA/TE, vascular disease, age 65-74, and sex category) scores. On October 9, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of more-than-minimally manipulated allograft heart valves (MMM Allograft HVs). A MMM Allograft HV is a human valve or valved conduit that has been aseptically recovered from qualified donors, dissected free from the human heart, and then subjected to a manufacturing process(es) that alters the original relevant characteristics of the tissue (21 CFR 1271.3(f), 21 CFR 1271.10(a)(1), and 21 CFR 1271.20). The valve is then stored until needed by a recipient. An example of such a manufacturing process is one that intentionally removes the cells and cellular debris with the goal of reducing in vivo antigenicity. MMM Allograft HVs are considered preamendment devices because they were found substantially equivalent to devices in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. MMM Allograft HVs are currently regulated under Product Code OHA, ‘‘Heart Valve, More than Minimally Manipulated Allograft,’’ as unclassified devices and reviewed under the premarket notification, 510(k), authority (21 CFR part 807). FDA is seeking committee input on the safety and effectiveness of MMM Allograft HVs and the regulatory classification for MMM Allograft HVs.
