Meeting Date: 4/30/15-5/1/15

Meeting Details:

On April 30, 2015, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of Hearing Protectors, Circumaural Hearing Protectors, Middle Ear Inflation Devices, Tactile Hearing Aid Devices, and Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses. These devices are considered preamendments devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Devices Amendments became effective. Hearing Protectors are currently regulated under the heading, “Protector, Hearing (Insert),” Product Code EWD, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Circumaural Hearing Protectors are currently regulated under the heading, “Protector, Hearing (Circumaural),” Product Code EWE, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Middle Ear Inflation Devices are currently regulated under the heading, “Device, Inflation, Middle Ear,” Product Code MJV, as unclassified under the 510k) premarket notification authority. Tactile Hearing Aid Devices are currently regulated under the heading, “Hearing Aid, Tactile,” Product Code LRA, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses are currently regulated under the heading, “Apparatus, Vestibular Analysis,” Product Code LXV, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. FDA is seeking committee input on the risks, safety and effectiveness and the regulatory classification of Hearing Protectors, Circumaural Hearing Protectors, Middle Ear Inflation Devices, Tactile Hearing Aid Devices, and Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses. On May 1, 2015 the committee will discuss key issues related to a potential pre- to post-market shift in clinical data requirements for modifications to cochlear implants in pediatric patients. These issues are categorized into three broad areas for discussion: 1. Cochlear implant changes (e.g. sound processing features, patient characteristics) that may be suitable for this pre- to post-market shift in clinical data requirements. 2. Appropriate premarket clinical data requirements to support pre- to post-market shift (e.g. leveraging clinical data from adults and/or older children.) 3. Clinical study design considerations (e.g. study endpoints and test metrics, subject characteristics) for post market studies to confirm safety and effectiveness and inform future labeling.

Meeting Date: 12/18/09-12/18/09

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on a premarket approval application, sponsored by Envoy Medical Corporation, for the Esteem Totally Implantable Hearing System. The ESTEEM is a totally implantable hearing device that is implanted in the middle ear to help hearing in patients suffering from mild to severe hearing loss that is sensorineural in origin. The Esteem System consists of three implantable components (Sound Processor, Sensor, and Driver), two external programmers (Esteem Programmer and Personal Programmer), an external Intraoperative System Analyzer (ISA) and accessories. The intended use of the ESTEEM is to alleviate hearing loss in adults by replicating the ossicular chain and providing additional gain. FDA intends to make background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting. If FDA is unable to post the background material on its Web site prior to the meeting, the background material will be made publicly available at the location of the advisory committee meeting, and the background material will be posted on FDA’s Web site after the meeting. Background material is available at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/default.htm. Scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee link.

The committee will discuss general issues surrounding the prescription use versus over the counter (OTC) use of devices intended to treat snoring or mild to severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The discussion will include the role of the medical/dental provider in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of snoring and OSA; the ability of the patient to self diagnose and treat OSA; the types of clinical data that would be needed to support an OTC intended use; and the components of adequate device labelling. The discussion will not include continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices and surgical treatments for OSA.

Meeting Date: 8/3/18-8/3/18

Meeting Details:

The committees will discuss results from assessments of the transmucosal immediate-release fentanyl (TIRF) medicines’ risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS), approved in December 2011. The TIRF REMS requires that healthcare providers who prescribe TIRF medicines for outpatient use are specially certified, that pharmacies that dispense TIRF medicines for inpatient and outpatient use are specially certified, and that completion of the prescriber-patient agreement form occurs prior to dispensing TIRF medicines for outpatient use. The Agency will seek the committees’ assessment as to whether this REMS with elements to assure safe use (ETASU) assures safe use, is not unduly burdensome to patient access to the drugs, and to the extent practicable, minimizes the burden to the healthcare delivery system. The Agency will also seek the committees’ input on any possible modifications to the TIRF REMS goals and requirements, as well as input on the adequacy of the evaluations conducted in the REMS assessments to determine whether the TIRF REMS goals are being met. Comments from the public can be submitted to the docket (see PUBLIC PARTICIPATION INFORMATION) on a broad evaluation of the TIRF REMS and whether any aspect of the TIRF REMS should be modified as well as any proposed modifications.
