In the Federal Register of January 4, 2000 (65 FR 256), FDA published a proposed rule amending these regulations to add two drug products to the list: (1) Aminopyrine (all drug products containing aminopyrine) and (2) astemizole (all drug products containing astemizole). In addition to these two drug products, the committee will review the following three drug products: (1) Grepafloxacin (all drug products containing grepafloxacin), (2) troglitazone (all drug products containing troglitazone), and (3) cisapride (all drug products containing cisapride).

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.
