Meeting Date: 6/7/12-6/7/12

Meeting Details:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled “Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy Assessments: Social Science Methodologies to Assess Goals Related to Knowledge.” The purpose of the public workshop is to initiate constructive dialogue and information-sharing among regulators, researchers, the pharmaceutical industry, health care organizations, health care providers, and others from the general public about survey methodologies and instruments that can be used to evaluate patients’ and health care providers’ knowledge about the risks of drugs marketed with an approved REMS. The input from this workshop will be used to develop guidance for industry describing best practices for conducting an assessment of a REMS goal regarding patient and/or health care provider knowledge about a drug’s risk(s). To assist in the workshop discussion and the ultimate development of the guidance, FDA is making available an issue paper that discusses our experience with knowledge assessments for REMS and contains specific questions we hope to receive input on.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsOverview of the ECG Warehouse and Review Process

Meeting Date: 9/30/05-9/30/05

Meeting Details:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled: Overview of the ECG Warehouse and Review Process. The purpose of the workshop is to communicate to industry the logistics of ECG waveform review as a part of the application review process. The ECG Warehouse, an annotated Electrocardiogram waveform data (aECG) storage and review system, is being incorporated into the FDA’s set of tools. This workshop will inform industry how to make aECG source data available to reviewers through the ECG Warehouse. This workshop will also overview the types of information the ECG Warehouse provides reviewers and will give examples of problematic aECGs already found. Traditionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received only summary representations of electrocardiogram data for the analysis of safety and efficacy of products. The FDA is interested in improving the evaluation of specific drug-induced cardiac toxicity by evaluating ECG waveform data with detailed, sponsor-generated annotations from the full spectrum of ECG devices including 12-lead standard ECG, Holter monitors, and implanted devices. The FDA entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Mortara Instrument, Inc. to develop a data warehouse application and viewing tool for aECG in the format specified in the Health Level Seven standard accredited by the American National Standards Institute. A web-based system supports communication with the sponsor for uploading, receipt, validation, transformation, and warehousing of aECG source data. The warehouse enables the FDA to evaluate aECG source data for evidence of cardiac toxicity and the viewing tool allows reviewers to selectively display waveforms and annotations. FDA is holding a public meeting to communicate the availability of the ECG Warehouse for FDA reviewers and the need for industry to upload aECGs into it. The agenda for this meeting, which will include an overview of the software capabilities and examples of problematic aECGs, will be available on the Internet at http://www.fda.gov/cder/regulatory/ersr/default.htm before the meeting.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsInternational Symposium on Combination Vaccines

Meeting Date: 2/2/00-2/4/00

Meeting Details:

The 3-day International Symposium on Combination Vaccines will explore the laboratory, clinical, and epidemiologic issues that are integral to the development and licensing of new combination vaccines that are both safe and effective. Increased complexity of the recommended childhood immunization schedule has heightened demand for additional combination vaccines that will convey immunity to more than one antigen. Many important benefits can be derived from the use of combination vaccines, including higher rates of immunization—particularly among less accessible populations—and reduced costs. However, a series of scientific and practical challenges will need to be addressed to expedite the widespread development of safe and effective combination vaccines.Among these challenges are (1) the potential for diminished immune response, (2) development, acceptance, and use of correlates of protection, (3) design and analysis of studies to evaluate safety (4) considerations for simultaneous administration, (5) manufacturing, product testing, and preclinical (animal) evaluation, and (6) challenges to use of combination vaccines.

Meeting Date: 11/13/19-11/14/19

Meeting Details:

On November 13 and 14, 2019, the committee will discuss the topic of immunological responses to metal-containing products regulated as medical devices. The discussion will focus on metal-containing implants as well as dental amalgam. Implants are medical devices that are placed into a surgically or naturally formed opening of the human body and are intended to remain there after the procedure for an extended period of time (typically, greater than 30 days). For decades, metal-containing implants have been used in a large number of medical specialties including cardiology, orthopedics, dentistry, gastroenterology, and neurology or neurosurgery. Recent postmarket issues with some metal-on-metal orthopedic implants and gynecological metal-containing implants have raised questions about the potential for some patients to develop unexpected or heightened biological responses to the implant. These may include local (peri-implant) adverse events and potentially systemic manifestations, which may impact a patient's quality of life and necessitate medical or surgical intervention. While not considered an implant, dental amalgam is included in this discussion because of its potential for patient and user exposure to mercury compounds and some purported similarities in the adverse biological responses and clinical manifestations elicited by some dental amalgams to that of traditional metal implants.

Meeting Date: 10/29/19-10/29/19

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss supplemental new drug application (sNDA 021945/S-023#) for MAKENA (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection, 250 milligrams per milliliter) manufactured by AMAG Pharmaceuticals. In 2011, MAKENA received approval under the accelerated approval pathway (21 CFR part 314, subpart H, and section 506(c) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 356(c)) for reducing the risk of preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth. MAKENA was shown in the preapproval clinical trial to reduce the proportion of women who delivered at less than 37 weeks gestation, a surrogate endpoint that FDA determined was reasonably likely to predict a clinical benefit of preterm birth prevention, such as improved neonatal mortality and morbidity. As required under 21 CFR 314.510, the Applicant conducted a postapproval confirmatory clinical trial to verify and describe clinical benefit. AMAG Pharmaceuticals has disclosed that this completed confirmatory trial did not demonstrate a statistically significant difference between the treatment and placebo arms for the co-primary endpoints of reducing the risk of recurrent preterm birth or improving neonatal mortality and morbidity. The committee will consider the trial's findings and the sNDA in the context of AMAG Pharmaceuticals' confirmatory study obligation.
