Meeting Date: 6/11/19-6/12/19

.

Meeting Details:

FDA is seeking public input on the clinical utility and safety concerns associated with the higher range of opioid analgesic dosing (both in terms of higher strength products and higher daily doses) in the outpatient setting. FDA is interested in better understanding current clinical use and situations that may warrant use of higher doses of opioid analgesics. We are also interested in discussing the magnitude and frequency of harms associated with higher doses of opioid analgesics relative to lower doses, as well as optimal strategies for managing these risks while ensuring access to appropriate pain management for patients. FDA frequently hears from patients and healthcare providers that higher dose opioid analgesics continue to be a unique and necessary part of effective pain management for some patients. FDA is also cognizant of serious safety concerns associated with both higher strengths and higher daily doses of opioid analgesics, both in patients and in others who may access these drugs. Higher strength products may be more harmful in cases of accidental exposure and overdose and may also be more sought out for misuse and abuse. Along with a number of other factors, a higher daily opioid dose is associated with greater risk of overdose. Concerns have also been raised that higher dose opioid regimens may carry a higher risk of addiction, although robust evidence for a causal relationship is lacking. There is a strong association between higher opioid dose and duration/persistence of opioid analgesic therapy and assessing temporal relationships and independent effects of opioid dose and duration on the risks of both addiction and overdose is challenging. In addition, FDA acknowledges the complex and evolving landscape of the opioid epidemic, with myriad Federal, State, local, and payer efforts to encourage more judicious prescribing of opioid analgesics, and the growing threat of highly lethal illicit opioids. To better understand both the clinical utility and harms of higher dose opioid analgesics in the current environment, and to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various potential risk management strategies, FDA brings these issues to an advisory committee to seek input and advice from the clinical, patient, public health, and research communities. In particular, FDA seeks to discuss: (1) The current clinical use and situations that may warrant pain management with opioid analgesics at higher product strengths and daily doses, factors influencing prescribing practices, and specific patient populations for whom there may be utility in prescribing these medications at higher doses; (2) the magnitude and frequency of harms associated with opioid analgesics at higher product strengths and daily doses, relative to lower strengths and daily doses, including the role of opioid dose in adverse health outcomes in both patients and in others who may access the drugs (e.g., risk for developing addiction, fatal overdose), the relevance of therapy duration and physical opioid dependence, and risks in different subpopulations (e.g., patients with chronic non-cancer pain, young children, adolescents); and (3) possible FDA interventions and their expected impact on patients and public health more broadly, including, for example, potential effects on prescribing and pain management practices, patient experience and behaviors, and adverse outcomes such as addiction and overdose.

Meeting Details:

On June 19 and 20, 2019, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on information related to recent observations of increased long-term mortality in peripheral arterial disease patients treated with paclitaxel-coated balloons and paclitaxel-eluting stents compared to patients treated with uncoated comparator devices. FDA requests panel input regarding the presence and magnitude of the signal and potential causes. FDA also seeks input regarding appropriate regulatory actions associated with the findings.

Meeting Date: 6/20/19-6/20/19

.

Meeting Details:

During the morning session, the particular matter for this meeting will be review and discussion of the FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017 (FDARA) mandated Relevant Pediatric Molecular Target List now posted on the FDA website: https://www.fda.gov/?AboutFDA/?CentersOffices/?OfficeofMedicalProductsandTobacco/?OCE/?ucm544641.htm. FDA is required by statute to review and update the previously approved and published lists. The focus of the discussion will be limited to two target “classes” included in the Relevant Pediatric Molecular Target List: (1) Targets linked to cell lineage and (2) targets on normal immune cells and cells in the tumor microenvironment. Planned introductory presentations will be on: (1) Cell-based therapy approaches to childhood cancer and (2) novel membrane antigen determinants in pediatric tumors. During the afternoon session, information will be presented to gauge investigator interest in exploring potential pediatric development plans for two products in various stages of development for adult cancer indications. The subcommittee will consider and discuss issues concerning diseases to be studied, patient populations to be included, and possible study designs in the development of these products for pediatric use. The discussion will also provide information to the Agency pertinent to the formulation of written requests for pediatric studies, if appropriate. The products under consideration are: (1) ONC201, presentation by Oncoceutics Inc., and (2) CD24Fc, presentation by OncoImmune, Inc.

Meeting Date: 5/14/19-5/14/19

Meeting Details:

During the morning session, the committee will discuss new drug application (NDA) 211810 for pexidartinib capsule, submitted by Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. The proposed indication (use) for this product is for the treatment of adult patients with symptomatic tenosynovial giant cell tumor, also referred to as giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath or pigmented villonodular synovitis, which is associated with severe orbidity or functional limitations, and which is not amenable to improvement with surgery. During the afternoon session, the committee will discuss NDA 212166 for quizartinib tablets, submitted by Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. The proposed indication (use) for this product is for the treatment of adults with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia, which is FLT3-ITD positive, as detected by an FDA-approved test.

Meeting Date: 5/7/19-5/7/19

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss the following topics: (1) Approaches to evaluate the effect of renal impairment on drug exposure, and (2) best practice considerations for translating pharmacokinetic (PK) information into dose individualization instructions. Regarding topic 1, many registration trials exclude patients with advanced kidney disease, and product labeling dosing instructions for these patients are commonly derived from our understanding of the change in the PK in individuals with varying degrees of renal function. The most common current approach to determine dosing instructions for patients with varying degrees of renal function begins with a stand-alone renal impairment study, either full design or reduced design. In addition to stand-alone renal impairment studies, drug development programs often use the findings from population PK (POPPK) analyses, which leverage the PK information across all the studies available in a drug development program. An alternative approach to consider is for drug development programs to predict the impact of renal impairment on the PK of the drug, either based on the understanding of the PK of a new molecular entity or using physiologic based PK (PBPK) models, without a stand-alone renal impairment study. Patients with impaired renal function can then be included in later stage clinical trials, with prospective dose adjustment incorporated if deemed necessary based the predictions. The dosing should be confirmed based on analysis of PK samples from the late stage trials (sparse PK, POPPK analysis). Regarding topic 2, dose individualization is typically achieved by applying the concept of `exposure-matching' under the assumption that such a maneuver will result in a benefit-risk similar to that observed in the registration trials. The committee will discuss the application of `exposure matching,' including the necessary assumptions and any limitations.
