Meeting Date: 12/8/11-12/9/11

Meeting Details:

On December 8, 2011, the committees will discuss the benefits and risks of drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives in light of the emerging safety concern that the risk of venous thromboembolism (blood clots that can break loose and move within the circulatory system) associated with use of these products may be higher compared to oral contraceptives that contain the progestin, levonorgestrel. Drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives for the primary indication of pregnancy prevention include: YASMIN, YAZ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol tablets), BEYAZ, SAFYRAL (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol/levomefolate calcium tablets and levomefolate calcium tablets), Bayer HealthCare, and the generic equivalents for these products.On December 9, 2011, the committees will discuss the benefits and risks of ORTHO EVRA (norelgestromin/ethinyl estradiol transdermal system), marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., for the prevention of pregnancy. Specifically, the committees will discuss the possibly increased risk of thrombotic (blood clots) and thromboembolic events (blood clots that can break loose and move within the circulatory system) in users of ORTHO EVRA compared to women who use commonly prescribed birth control pills, as suggested by postmarketing studies.

Bisphosphonates for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis include: FOSAMAX (alendronate sodium) tablets and solution and FOSAMAX PLUS D (alendronate sodium/cholecalciferol) tablets, Merck & Co., Inc.; ACTONEL (risedronate sodium) tablets, ATELVIA (risedronate sodium) delayed release tablets, and ACTONEL WITH CALCIUM (Copackaged) (risedronate sodium with calcium carbonate) tablets, Warner Chilcott, LLC; BONIVA (ibandronate sodium) tablets and injection, Roche Therapeutics, Inc.; RECLAST (zoledronic acid) injection, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp.; and the generic equivalents for these products, if any.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsAdvisory Committee for Reproductive Health Drugs

Meeting Date: 6/28/96-6/28/96

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss the safety and efficacy of certain oral contraceptives for postcoital emergency use. Over the years, there has been increasing interest in this use by health care professionals and consumers. This use has been approved in some countries, and physicians have prescribed oral contraceptives for emergency use in the United States, although contraceptives marketed in the United States are not labeled for this use. On November 23, 1994, the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy submitted a citizen's petition requesting FDA to direct sponsors of certain oral contraceptives to amend the labeling and patient package inserts to include information regarding the use of these products for postcoital emergency contraception (Docket No. 94P-0427). FDA denied the petition but determined that it would be appropriate to discuss the scientific issues related to the safety and effectiveness of this use with the Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee to determine whether the data support the use under certain conditions.

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.
