Meeting Date: 2/27/12-2/27/12

Meeting Details:

The committee will be asked to comment on the following topics related to the use of ophthalmic drug products (products intended for use in the eye): 1) Appropriate types of clinical evidence for developing anti-inflammatory drugs for the treatment of postoperative inflammation and reduction of ocular (eye) pain in patients who have undergone ocular surgery. This will include a discussion of the definition and scope of this indication as well as the types of clinical trials needed to support approval; and 2) appropriateness of marketing a single bottle of 3 ophthalmic product for use in both eyes for postsurgical indications as it relates to the potential risk for infection. FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research would like the advisory committee to provide advice on the potential risk and approaches to mitigating that risk, including limits to fill size where appropriate.

On September 12, 1994, the committee will discuss the pharmacodynamic (i.e., vasoconstrictor) measurement of bioequivalence. On September 13, 1994, this topic will be further discussed along with other issues related to the documentation of equivalence according to the interim guidance. Discussion will be limited to dermatologic products and will not include ophthalmic or inhaled corticosteroid products. Also, on September 13, 1994, there will be a review of the current status of topics discussed at previous Generic Drugs advisory committee meetings

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.
