Meeting Date: 4/12/16-4/12/16

Meeting Details:

On April 12, 2016, the Pediatric Advisory Committee (PAC) will meet to discuss pediatric-focused safety reviews, as mandated by the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (Pub. L. 107-109) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (Pub. L. 108-155). See the list of the products in this document to be discussed. In addition, FDA will be providing information on a proposed public advisory committee meeting for September 15 and 16, 2016, on appropriate pediatric development plans for prescription opioid drugs. Prior to the safety reviews and the open public hearing (see later in this section for further information), FDA will present, from approximately 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., a framework of current plans for a 2-day joint meeting of the PAC, the Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee, and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committees. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA is publishing an announcement of this advisory committee meeting to be held on September 15 and 16, 2016, on the FDA White Oak Campus, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Building 31 Conference Center, the Great Room (rm. 1503), Silver Spring, MD 20993-0002. Following the presentation on the proposed framework for the September meeting, there will be an hour of open public hearing from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. to provide an opportunity for the public to provide input concerning the topics before the PAC, including the use of opioids for control of severe pain in the pediatric population. To assist with the planning of this advisory committee meeting, FDA is establishing a public docket [Docket No. FDA-2016-N-0584] to receive input on appropriate pediatric development plans for prescription opioid drugs. The docket will remain open following the September advisory committee meeting. Comments about the upcoming September advisory committee meeting should not be submitted to the docket number listed at the top of this Federal Register notice [Docket No. FDA-2016-N-0567]. Please also see the ADDRESSES section of this notice for further docket information. The pediatric-focused safety reviews for the Centers will then occur. The PAC will meet to discuss the following products (listed by FDA Center): Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER): [cir] FLULAVAL QUADRIVALENT (influenza virus vaccine) [cir] FLULAVAL TRIVALENT (influenza virus vaccine) [cir] FLUZONE QUADRIVALENT (influenza virus vaccine) Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER): [cir] ACIPHEX SPRINKLES (rabeprazole sodium) [cir] SKYLA (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) [cir] MYCAMINE (micafungin sodium) [cir] NOXAFIL (posaconazole) [cir] PRECEDEX (dexmedetomidine hydrocholoride) [cir] SABRIL (vigabatrim) [cir] SEROQUEL (quetiapine fumarate) and SEROQUEL XR (quetiapine fumarate extended-release) [[Page 8509]] [cir] SKYLA (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) [cir] SYMBAX (fluoxetine hydrocholoride and olanzapine) [cir] VYVANSE CAPSULES (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate) [cir] XELODA (capecitabine) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH): [cir] IMPELLA RP SYSTEM (humanitarian use device (HUD)) [cir] LIPSORBER LA-15 SYSTEM (HUD) [cir] MEDTRONIC ACTIVA DYSTONIA THERAPY (HUD) In addition to the agenda items, the PAC will remain in public session over the lunch hour on April 12, 2016, to hear a presentation and provide feedback on an FDA proposal for a risk-based approach to the pediatric-focused safety reviews mandated by the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act and the Pediatric Research Equity Act.

Meeting Date: 6/2/16-6/3/16

Meeting Details:

On June 2 and 3, 2016, the committee will discuss recent reports and epidemiologic investigations of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections associated with the use of heater-cooler devices during cardiac surgical procedures. FDA is convening this committee to seek expert scientific and clinical opinion related to contamination of heater-cooler devices, associated patient infections, and mitigation strategies based on available scientific information. The committee will make recommendations on: (1) the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfection methods for heater-cooler devices; (2) the amount and type of premarket data and information needed to demonstrate validation of cleaning and disinfection of heater-cooler devices in support of labeling claims and technical instructions; (3) appropriate risk mitigations to be implemented by manufacturers of heater-cooler devices and/or hospital facilities to ensure patient safety during surgical procedures where these devices are used; and (4) appropriate guidelines and/or criteria based on a risk stratification schema for notifying patients who may have already been exposed to NTM during prior cardiac surgeries. Recommendations on these issues will assist FDA in minimizing patient exposure to infections that may result from contaminated heater-cooler devices.
