Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsPulmonary-Allergy Adcomm - Teva Pharma

Meeting Date: 12/9/15-12/10/15

Meeting Details:

On Day 1 - December 9, 2015 - The committee will discuss biologics license application 761033, reslizumab for injection, submitted by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd., for the proposed indication to reduce exacerbations, relieve symptoms, and improve lung function in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and above, with asthma and elevated blood eosinophils, who are inadequately controlled on inhaled corticosteroids. On Day 2 - December 10, 2015 - The committees will discuss the safety of codeine in children 18 years of age and younger. Codeine (most often in combination with acetaminophen) is used for the treatment of pain in children; however, it is contraindicated for the management of pain after tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy. Codeine (in combination with other medicines) is used for the relief of cough associated with upper respiratory allergies or the common cold in children. Codeine is available by prescription and also through the over-the-counter (OTC) Drug Monograph for Cold, Cough, Allergy, Bronchodilator, and Antiasthmatic Drug Products (21 CFR 341.14, 21 CFR 341.74, and 21 CFR 341.90). The focus of the meeting will be the risk of serious adverse events, such as respiratory depression and death, including reports in children who are CYP2D6 ultra-rapid metabolizers. The committees will discuss whether the use of codeine in children should be restricted further beyond the current contraindication described previously and whether codeine should be available through the OTC Drug Monograph.

.

Meeting Details:

On February 25, 2016, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information regarding the premarket approval application (PMA) for ``TOPAS Treatment for Fecal Incontinence,' by ASTORA Women's Health, LLC. The ``TOPAS Treatment for Fecal Incontinence' device is a sling device (mesh) to be implanted around the puborectalis muscle (a muscle that contributes towards the maintenance of fecal continence). The proposed Indication for Use (IFU) for the ``TOPAS Treatment for Fecal Incontinence' device, as stated in the PMA, is as follows: The ``TOPAS Treatment for Fecal Incontinence' is intended to treat women with fecal incontinence (also referred to as accidental bowel leakage) who have failed more conservative therapies. On February 26, 2016, during session I, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the reclassification of urogynecologic surgical mesh instrumentation from class I to class II. The applicable product codes are those related to urogynecologic surgical mesh as follows: OTN and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, synthetic, urogynecologic, for stress urinary incontinence, female, multi-incision;' PAG and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, non-synthetic, urogynecologic, for stress urinary incontinence, female, multi-incision;' PAH and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, synthetic, urogynecologic, for stress urinary incontinence, female, single-incision mini-sling;' OTO and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, synthetic, urogynecologic, for apical vaginal and uterine prolapse, transabdominally placed;' PAJ and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, non-synthetic, urogynecologic, for apical vaginal and uterine prolapse, transabdominally placed;' OTP and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, synthetic, urogynecologic, for pelvic organ prolapse, transvaginally placed' and PAI and the associated device classification name, ``mesh, surgical, non-synthetic, urogynecologic, for pelvic organ prolapse, transvaginally placed.' Some examples of the means by which these devices perform these functions and their respective IFU/Intended Use (IU) statements are: Urogynecologic surgical mesh instrumentation is used: [cir] IFU/IU: To aid in insertion, placement, fixation, or anchoring of surgical mesh for procedures including transvaginal pelvic organ prolapse repair, sacrocolpopexy (transabdominal pelvic organ prolapse repair), treatment of female stress urinary incontinence. Examples of such surgical instrumentation include needle passers and trocars, needle guides, fixation tools, and tissue anchors. The committee, during session II, will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of the product code ``LKX' and the associated device classification name, ``Device, Thermal, Hemorrhoids.' The product code LKX represents a category of devices intended to apply controlled cooling and conductive heating to 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 aluminum probe that contains a temperature sensitive element to regulate temperature within 2 degrees (between 37 and 46 degrees centigrade). [cir] IFU/IU: The apparatus is intended to apply controlled, conductive heating to hemorrhoids. Uses a heat applicator inserted into the rectum, applicator contains a battery operated heater, and a sensor which provides temperature control/feedback. [cir] IFU/IU: Intended to provide temporary relief of the symptoms of hemorrhoids through the application of mild heating. Uses speculum-like plastic container containing liquid to cool hemorrhoidal veins. [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.
