Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsRisk Communication AdComm

Meeting Date: 3/5/18-3/6/18

Meeting Details:

Day 1 - The committee will discuss the impact of pregnancy and lactation labeling information in prescription drug and biological products as modified under the Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule. The Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule (PLLR) was implemented in June 2015, and required changes to labeling of information in prescription drug and biological products to better communicate clinically relevant information to health care providers on risks associated with medication exposure during pregnancy and lactation. The Agency seeks input and recommendations on: how information in PLLR labeling is being perceived and used by health care providers and other stakeholders, factors that are critical to health care providers’ interpretation of the data and counseling of pregnant women on the risks and benefits of a medication, and how to convey risk information to health care providers to accurately and adequately inform risk-benefit considerations for medication use during pregnancy.

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.
