Meeting Date: 3/29/18-3/30/18

Meeting Details:

On March 29, 2018, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information regarding a premarket approval application to market a novel continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device system, the Senseonics, Inc. Eversense CGM System. This device requires minor surgery to implant and remove, and if approved, would provide 90 days of sensor glucose values from each implanted sensor. The Eversense CGM System measures patients’ glucose concentrations from subcutaneous interstitial fluid similar to approved CGM systems. All CGM devices currently or previously marketed used electrochemistry to measure glucose in interstitial fluids, last for 3 to 11 days and are inserted via a small-gauge needle by the end user. The proposed CGM system uses a fluorescence-based measurement technique, requires minor surgery for subcutaneous implantation, and will have a 90-day sensor wear period. The proposed CGM sensor also includes a drug component (dexamethasone acetate) intended to mitigate negative effects on sensor accuracy and sensor life from the foreign body response at the sensor insertion site. The proposed intended use, as stated by the sponsor, is as follows: The Eversense CGM System continually measures glucose levels in adults (age 18 and older) with diabetes for the operating life of the sensor. The system is intended to: • Aid in the management of diabetes. • Provide real-time glucose readings. • Provide glucose trend information. • Provide alerts for the detection and prediction of episodes of low blood glucose (hypoglycemia) and high blood glucose (hyperglycemia). The system is a prescription device. Historical data from the system can be interpreted to aid in providing therapy adjustments. These adjustments should be based on patterns seen over time. On March 30, 2018, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding measuring blood glucose using capillary blood with blood glucose meters in all hospital patients, including those receiving intensive medical intervention/therapy and patients with decreased peripheral blood flow, such as with severe hypotension, shock, hyperosmolar-hyperglycemia and severe dehydration (e.g., patients in intensive care settings). Currently, FDA has cleared one glucose meter for use all over the hospital using venous and arterial blood. FDA understands that being able to make capillary blood measurements in all hospitalized patients using FDA cleared and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waived (i.e., designated as waived per the standards in the CLIA) glucose meters would be more convenient and timely for hospital staff. FDA would like to present new data from capillary blood measurements on glucose meters in patients receiving intensive medical intervention/therapy to the Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Toxicology Devices Panel. FDA would like to receive feedback from the advisory panel on the benefits and risks of measuring capillary blood using blood glucose meters in this intended use population, and the considerations for CLIA waiver for this use.

Meeting Details:

On July 21, 2016, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information regarding a premarket approval application (PMA) panel-track supplement for a proposed change in intended use of Dexcom, Inc.’s, Dexcom G5® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGM) device so that, in addition to tracking and trending interstitial fluid glucose concentrations, patients can use the device as a replacement for their blood glucose meters and make treatment decisions based on the interstitial fluid glucose concentration reported by the CGM.
On July 22, 2016, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on information regarding a premarket notification (510(k)) submission for the Alere Afinion™ HbA1c Dx point-of-care test system, sponsored by Alere Technologies AS. The proposed intended use, as stated by the sponsor: Alere Afinion HbA1c Dx is an in vitro diagnostic test for quantitative determination of glycated hemoglobin (% hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c) in human whole blood. This test is to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of diabetes and as an aid in identifying patients who may be at risk for developing diabetes. The measurement of % HbA1c is recommended as a marker of long-term metabolic control in persons with diabetes mellitus. For use in clinical laboratories and point of care laboratory settings.

Meeting Date: 4/25/13-4/25/13

Meeting Details:

On April 25, 2013, during session I, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on the appropriate regulatory classification for diagnostic devices known as methotrexate enzyme immunoassays. Methotrexate enzyme immunoassays are considered pre- Amendment devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976 when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. Methotrexate enzyme immunoassays are currently regulated under the heading of “Enzyme Immunoassay, Methotrexate,” Product Code LAO, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Methotrexate enzyme immunoassays are for the quantitative determination of methotrexate. The measurements obtained are used in monitoring levels of methotrexate to ensure appropriate drug therapy. FDA is seeking panel input on the safety and effectiveness of methotrexate enzyme immunoassays. On April 25, 2013, during session II, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on the appropriate regulatory classification for diagnostic devices known as phencyclidine (PCP) enzyme immunoassays and PCP radioimmunoassays. PCP enzyme immunoassays and PCP radioimmunoassays are considered pre-Amendment devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976 when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. PCP enzyme immunoassays are currently regulated under the heading of “Enzyme Immunoassay, Phencyclidine,” Product Code LCM, and “Radioimmunoassay, Phencyclidine,” Product Code LCL, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. FDA is seeking panel input on the safety and effectiveness of PCP enzyme immunoassays and PCP radioimmunoassays. 3 On April 25, 2013, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on the appropriate regulatory classification for diagnostic devices known as isoniazid test strips. Isoniazid test strips are considered pre-Amendment devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976 when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. Isoniazid test strips are currently regulated under the heading of “Strip, Test Isoniazid,” Product Code MIG, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Isoniazid test strips are a qualitative assay used for detecting isonicotinic acid and its metabolites in urine to determine compliance of isoniazid (INH) medication. FDA is seeking panel input on the safety and effectiveness of isoniazid test strips.

Meeting Date: 10/22/20-10/22/20

Meeting Details:

On October 22, 2020, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in Medical Devices.” Specifically, we will discuss the composition of the datasets on which the software “learns”, components of the device information shared with patients, and factors that impact patient trust in the technology. Large clinical datasets are used to train and improve AI/ML algorithms, allowing transformational improvements in the diagnosis, clinical decision making, and treatment of patients. Devices using AI/ML technology will transform healthcare delivery by increasing efficiency of key processes in the treatment of patients. Health products powered by AI/ML are streaming into our lives, from virtual doctor apps to wearable sensors and drugstore chatbots to algorithms for detecting cancer in mammography and interpretations of chest X rays. Despite the rapid advancement and integration, AI/ML systems may have algorithmic biases, limited generalizability, and lack transparency in their assumptions based on potential limitations of training datasets. The recommendations provided by the committee will address the importance of including various demographic groups in AI/ML algorithm development. The recommendations will also address the impact of the user interface and transparency including what information and how the information about the devices could be communicated to foster patient trust in the AI/ML devices.
