Meeting Details:

On April 24, 2014, the committee will discuss the current knowledge about the safety and effectiveness of aversive conditioning devices that are intended to deliver a noxious electrical stimulus to a patient to modify undesirable behavioral characteristics. FDA is convening this committee to seek clinical and scientific expert opinion on the risks and benefits of certain aversive conditioning devices based on available scientific data and information. The Agency is considering whether to ban aversive conditioning devices that are intended to administer a noxious electrical stimulus to a patient to modify undesirable behavioral characteristics. The meeting will concern only devices classified under 21 CFR 882.5235 (aversive conditioning device, class II) that are not self-administered. Devices which deliver a noxious electrical stimulus automatically are not considered to be self-administered devices. Section 516 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 360f) sets forth the standard for banning devices. Under that provision, in order to ban a device, FDA must make a finding that a device "presents substantial deception or an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury" based on all available data and information. FDA regulations provide additional details about the procedures and standards for banning a device (21 CFR part 895).

The Epi proColon test is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic method for the detection of methylated Septin 9 DNA in plasma derived from patient whole blood specimens. Methylation of the target Septin 9 DNA sequence has been associated with the occurrence of colorectal cancer (CRC). The test is indicated to screen patients for CRC who are defined as average risk for CRC by current screening guidelines. The Epi proColon test is not intended to replace colorectal screening by colonoscopy. Patients with a positive Epi proColon test result should be referred for diagnostic colonoscopy. The Epi proColon test results are intended to be used in conjunction with the physician's assessment of history, other risk factors, and professional guidelines. On March 27, 2014, the committee will discuss, make recommendations and vote on information related to the premarket approval application for the Cologuard device, sponsored by Exact Sciences. Cologuard is an in vitro diagnostic device designed to analyze patients' stool for detection of hemoglobin, multiple DNA methylation and mutational markers, and the total amount of human DNA. Cologuard is intended for use as an adjunctive screening test for the detection of colorectal neoplasia associated DNA markers and for the presence of occult hemoglobin in human stool. A positive result may indicate the presence of colorectal cancer or premalignant colorectal neoplasia. Cologuard is not intended as a replacement for colonoscopy. Cologuard is intended to be used in conjunction with colonoscopy and other test methods in accordance with recognized screening guidelines.
