Meeting Date: 6/28/96-6/28/96

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss the safety and efficacy of certain oral contraceptives for postcoital emergency use. Over the years, there has been increasing interest in this use by health care professionals and consumers. This use has been approved in some countries, and physicians have prescribed oral contraceptives for emergency use in the United States, although contraceptives marketed in the United States are not labeled for this use. On November 23, 1994, the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy submitted a citizen's petition requesting FDA to direct sponsors of certain oral contraceptives to amend the labeling and patient package inserts to include information regarding the use of these products for postcoital emergency contraception (Docket No. 94P-0427). FDA denied the petition but determined that it would be appropriate to discuss the scientific issues related to the safety and effectiveness of this use with the Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee to determine whether the data support the use under certain conditions.

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).

Meeting Details:

On May 6, 2014, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information related to the premarket approval application for the RESQCPR System sponsored by Advanced Circulatory Systems, Inc. The RESQCPR System is comprised of two devices: the RESQPOD 16.0 Impedance Threshold Device, and the RESQPUMP Active Compression Decompression CPR Device. These devices are used together during manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in an attempt to enhance venous return to the heart and blood flow to vital organs during CPR to ultimately increase survival and neurologic outcome in patients suffering from out of hospital cardiac arrest. Advanced Circulatory Systems, Inc. has proposed the following indications for use: the RESQCPR System is intended for use in the performance of CPR to increase survival with favorable neurologic function in adult patients with non-traumatic cardiac arrest. On May 7, 2014, during session I, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of membrane lung for long-term pulmonary support systems, one of the remaining preamendment Class III devices regulated under the 510(k) pathway. A membrane lung for long-term pulmonary support refers to the oxygenator component of an extracorporeal circuit used during long-term procedures, commonly referred to as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). An ECMO procedure provides assisted extracorporeal circulation and physiologic gas exchange of a patient's blood when an acute (reversible) condition prevents the patient's own body from providing the physiologic gas exchange needed to sustain life. The circuit is comprised of multiple device types, including, but not limited to, an oxygenator, blood pump, cannulae, heat exchanger, tubing, filters, monitors/detectors, and other accessories; the circuit components and configuration (e.g., arteriovenous, veno-venous) may differ based on the needs of the individual patient or the condition being treated. ECMO is currently used for patients with acute reversible respiratory or cardiac failure, unresponsive to optimal ventilation and/or pharmacologic management.

On June 17, 2014, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information regarding the premarket application (PMA) for the Maestro® Rechargeable System sponsored by Enteromedics, Inc. The Maestro® Rechargeable System provides VBLOC Therapy. The implantable device is a neuromodulator, which delivers high frequency (5000 Hertz), controllable electrical pulses to the intra-abdominal vagus nerve trunks. The effect of VBLOC therapy is reported to suppress neural signals carried by the vagus nerve trunks, resulting in decreased hunger pangs, decreased digestive enzyme secretion and calorie absorption, and increased satiety. The device consists of implantable electronic device components that deliver VBLOC therapy, and external components that regulate device performance. The proposed indication for use for the Maestro® Rechargeable System, as stated in the PMA, is as follows: The Maestro® Rechargeable System is indicated for use in weight reduction in adult patients with obesity that have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 kilograms per square meter (kg/m2), or a BMI of at least 35 kg/m2 with one or more obesity related comorbid conditions, and have failed a more conservative weight reduction alternative.

Meeting Date: 3/26/14-3/27/14

Meeting Details:

On March 26, 2014, the committee will discuss, make recommendations and vote on information related to the premarket approval application sponsored by Epigenomics, Inc. for the Epi proColon. 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.
