Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsJoint Anesthetic and Analgesic with DSRM

Meeting Date: 9/11/15-9/11/15

Meeting Details:

The committees will discuss new drug application (NDA) 208090, oxycodone extended-release capsules for oral use, submitted by Collegium Pharmaceuticals, proposed for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative options are inadequate. This product has been formulated with the intent to provide abuse-deterrent properties. Pharmacokinetic data demonstrate that, in order to deliver the intended amount of oxycodone, the drug product must be taken with food. The committees will be asked to discuss the potential safety risks and the potential effects on efficacy associated with the extent of the food effect, and potential fluctuations in oxycodone levels that may occur if the product is not taken consistently with the same amount of food. In addition, the committees will be asked to review and discuss whether the data characterizing the abuse-deterrent properties support the likelihood that this drug product will have a meaningful effect on abuse and whether potential benefits to the public from abuse-deterrent properties outweigh potential risks to patients from the effect of food. The committees will be asked to vote on whether this product should be approved for marketing in the United States.

Meeting Date: 9/10/15-9/10/15

Meeting Details:

The committees will be asked to discuss new drug application (NDA) 206830, oxycodone immediate-release tablets, submitted by Purdue Pharma, with the proposed indication of the management of moderate to severe pain where the use of an opioid analgesic is appropriate. It has been formulated with the intent to provide abuse-deterrent properties. The pharmacokinetic data demonstrate that there is a significant food effect resulting in a significant delay in absorption and peak plasma concentration of oxycodone when taken with food. The applicant proposes to address this finding by labeling the product to be taken on an empty stomach, but patients may have difficulty complying with these instructions as the product is dosed every 4 to 6 hours as needed. The committees will be asked to discuss the potential safety risks and the potential effects on efficacy associated with the delayed peak concentration when taken with food, and the feasibility of labeling to be taken an empty stomach as a means to mitigate the potential risks. The committees will also be asked to consider whether the potential public health benefit of the product’s abuse-deterrent properties are sufficient to outweigh the risk to patients who are prescribed the product for the management of pain.

Meeting Details:

The committees will discuss Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) for extended-release and long-acting opioid analgesics. As a part of the materials for the meeting, FDA anticipates presenting a proposal for a class-wide opioid REMS and will solicit feedback from the advisory committees and public on the components of that proposal. The need for adequate pain control is an element of good medical practice. In this context, some persons suffering from pain need access to potent opioid drug products; however, inappropriate prescribing, addiction and death due to prescription opioid abuse and misuse have been increasing over the last decade.

[cir] IFU/IU: Treatment of external hemorrhoids by applying cold therapy (cryotherapy) directly to swollen hemorrhoidal veins. The committee, during session III, will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of the product code ``LRL' and the associated device classification name, ``Cushion, Hemorrhoid.' The product code LRL represents a category of devices intended to temporarily relieve pain and pressure caused by hemorrhoids. These devices are considered preamendments devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Devices Amendments became effective. Some examples of the means by which these devices perform these functions and their respective IFU/IU statements are: Uses an injection molded polypropylene copolymer plastic seat attached to a toilet seat (the product is adjustable and is available in round and elongated versions). [cir] IFU/IU: For the temporary relief from the pain and pressure of hemorrhoids. The device is for external use only. Uses a cushion with an inflatable vinyl exterior and a foam center. An air chamber, when filled, prevents the cushion from compressing the foam. A urethane foam center adds comfort. [cir] IFU/IU: Intended for the home convalescent patient with perineal discomfort. Uses a cushion that contains two internal molded structures that conform to the patient's shape. Exerts ``slight' pressure on hemorrhoid. IFU/IU not required at the time of clearance. The committee, during session IV, will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of the product code ``LKN' and the associated device classification name, ``Separator, automated, blood cell and plasma, therapeutic.' The product code LKN represents a category of centrifuge-type devices intended to separate blood components and perform therapeutic plasma exchange for the management of serious medical conditions in adults and children. These devices are considered preamendments devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Devices Amendments [[Page 940]] became effective. Some examples of the means by which these devices perform these functions and their respective IFU/IU statements are: Utilizes a continuous flow centrifuge (max speed 3000 revolutions per minute) to separate source blood from a subject into blood components. [cir] IFU/IU: May be used to perform therapeutic plasma exchange. [cir] IFU/IU: May be used to perform Red Blood Cell Exchange procedures for the transfusion management of Sickle Cell Disease in adults and children. Uses continuous flow access to a rotating centrifuge to separate blood components. [cir] IFU/IU: May be used to harvest cellular components from the blood of certain patients where the attending physician feels the removal of such component may benefit the patient. [cir] IFU/IU: May be used to remove plasma components and/or fluid selected by the attending physicians.
