Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss the risks and benefits of new drug application (NDA) 202880, by Zogenix Inc., for hydrocodone bitartrate extended-release capsules (proposed tradename ZOHYDRO ER), an opioid analgesic medication for the management of moderate to severe chronic pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time.

It will be formulated in dose strengths up to 50 milligrams, and administered twice daily (i.e., every 12 hours). The committee will be asked to determine whether the benefit-risk assessment of this product favors its approval for marketing.

Meeting Date: 7/22/10-7/23/10

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.
