On February 27, 2015, the committee will discuss, make recommendations and vote on information regarding the premarket approval application (PMA) panel-track supplement to expand the indication for use for the Radiesse Injectable Implant (Radiesse) device to include subdermal implantation for hand augmentation to correct volume deficit in the hands. The proposed indication for use for the Radiesse device, as stated in the PMA is as follows: The Radiesse device is for hand augmentation to correct volume deficit in the hands. FDA has previously approved the Radiesse device for the following two indications for use: The Radiesse device is indicated for subdermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is also indicated for subdermal implantation for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus. The Radiesse device remains unchanged from the current FDA approved version.

Meeting Details:

On June 26, 2013, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the possible reclassification of blood lancet devices. The committee will discuss whether new scientific data are sufficient to support the reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness to develop special controls that support regulation of blood lancets from class I to class II and class III. The four subsets of blood lancets have been identified with the following indications for use: • Blood lancet with an integral sharps injury prevention feature is for single use only, disposable blood lancet with a blade attached to a solid base which includes an integral sharps injury prevention feature that allows the device to be used once and then renders it inoperable and incapable of further use and which is used to puncture the skin to obtain a drop of blood for diagnostic purposes; • Blood lancet without an integral sharps injury prevention feature is for single use only, disposable blood lancet with a blade attached to a solid base which is used to puncture the skin to obtain a drop of blood for diagnostic purposes; • Blood lancet for single patient use only is a multiple use capable blood lancet with a single use blade inserted into a solid, reusable base which is used only for a single patient to puncture the skin to obtain a drop of blood for diagnostic purposes; and 3 • Multiple use blood lancet for multiple patient use is a multiple use capable blood lancet with a single use blade inserted into a solid, reusable base which is used for multiple patients to puncture the skin to obtain a drop of blood for diagnostic purposes.

The product has been formulated with the intent to provide abuse-deterrent properties. Benzhydrocodone is a hydrocodone prodrug which, according to the applicant, is rapidly converted into hydrocodone by enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract. The active drugs in this fixed-dose combination are hydrocodone and acetaminophen. The applicant has submitted data to support abuse-deterrent properties for this product. The committees will be asked to discuss whether the applicant has demonstrated abuse-deterrent properties for their product that would support labeling, and whether the nasal route of abuse is relevant for combination products made up of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.

On June 2 and 3, 2016, the committee will discuss recent reports and epidemiologic investigations of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections associated with the use of heater-cooler devices during cardiac surgical procedures. FDA is convening this committee to seek expert scientific and clinical opinion related to contamination of heater-cooler devices, associated patient infections, and mitigation strategies based on available scientific information. The committee will make recommendations on: (1) the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfection methods for heater-cooler devices; (2) the amount and type of premarket data and information needed to demonstrate validation of cleaning and disinfection of heater-cooler devices in support of labeling claims and technical instructions; 5 (3) appropriate risk mitigations to be implemented by manufacturers of heater-cooler devices and/or hospital facilities to ensure patient safety during surgical procedures where these devices are used; and (4) appropriate guidelines and/or criteria based on a risk stratification schema for notifying patients who may have already been exposed to NTM during prior cardiac surgeries. Recommendations on these issues will assist FDA in minimizing patient exposure to infections that may result from contaminated heater-cooler devices.
