Meeting Date: 4/24/14-4/24/14

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).

FDA is convening this committee to seek expert scientific and clinical opinion on the risks and benefits of this device based on the available premarket and postmarket data. The Wingspan Stent System with Gateway PTA Balloon Catheter is a neurovascular stent, balloon catheter, and delivery system consisting of the following components: 1. Wingspan Stent--This is a self-expanding, nitinol stent with a tubular mesh design. 2. Gateway PTA Balloon Catheter--This balloon catheter is used to predilate the lesion prior to introduction of the Wingspan Stent System into the patient. 3. Wingspan Delivery System--This delivery system is a single lumen, over-the-wire, coaxial microcatheter that is used to deliver the stent to the treatment site within the patient's artery.

Meeting Details:

On February 10, 2012, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the possible reclassification of cranial electrotherapy stimulator (CES) devices. On August 8, 2011 (76 FR 48062), FDA issued a proposed rule which, if made final, would make CES devices Class III requiring premarket approval. In response to the proposed rule, FDA received petitions under section 515(b)(2)(B) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360e(b)(2)(B)) requesting a change in classification. The reclassification petitions are available for public review and comment at www.regulations.gov1 under docket number FDA-2011-N-0504. The committee discussion will include the existing data to support CES safety and effectiveness and whether the data are sufficient to develop special controls to support regulation of these devices under Class II.

Currently, there are no OTC diagnostic tests for infectious diseases cleared or approved by CDRH. The committee will evaluate the risks and benefits to individual patients and to public health associated with clearing or approving OTC diagnostic tests for infectious diseases. Serious risks such as false negative results, false positive results, patient loss to medical followup, and the impact on surveillance of reportable infections will be addressed. Potential benefits such as reduction of infection transmission and increased access to testing will be discussed as well. The committee will also make recommendations on clinical study design, analytical study design, and acceptable performance criteria applicable to respiratory and STI diagnostic devices.

The proposed indications (uses) for this product are: (1) Reducing signs and symptoms, inducing major clinical response, inhibiting the progression of structural damage, and improving physical function in adult patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (alone or in combination with methotrexate or other non-biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs)); (2) reducing signs and symptoms of moderately to severely active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in patients 4 years of age and older (alone or in combination with methotrexate); (3) reducing signs and symptoms, inhibiting the progression of structural damage, and improving physical function in adult patients with active psoriatic arthritis (alone or in combination with non-biologic DMARDs); (4) reducing signs and symptoms in adult patients with active ankylosing spondylitis; (5) reducing signs and symptoms and inducing and maintaining clinical remission in adult patients with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease who have had an inadequate response to conventional therapy (ABP 501 would be indicated for reducing signs and symptoms and inducing clinical remission in these patients if they have also lost response to or are intolerant to infliximab); (6) inducing and sustaining clinical remission in adult patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis who have had an inadequate response to immunosuppressants such as corticosteroids, azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) (the effectiveness of ABP-501 would not be established in patients who have lost response to or were intolerant to TNF blockers); and (7) treatment of adult patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy, and when other systemic therapies are medically less appropriate (only to be administered to patients who will be closely monitored and have regular follow-up visits with a physician).
