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 Date: 12/17/18-12/18/18

Meeting Details:

The committees will provide input and advice on strategies to increase the availability of naloxone products intended for use in the community. The committees will be asked to consider various options for increasing access to naloxone, weighing logistical, economic, and harm reduction aspects and whether naloxone should be co-prescribed with all or some opioid prescriptions to reduce the risk of overdose death. Because of the potential, significant costs and burdens that may be associated with naloxone co-prescribing (e.g., economic costs to consumers and health systems, adjusting to manufacturing volume growth, drug shortages), the committees will also be asked to consider the potential burdens that may be associated with naloxone co-prescribing for all or some prescription opioid patients.

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.

Meeting Details:

On May 5, 2016, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m., the meeting will be closed to permit discussion and review of trade secret and/or confidential commercial information (5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(4)). During this session, the committees will discuss the drug development program of an investigational abuse-deterrent opioid product. The committees will be asked to discuss new drug application (NDA) 208653, benzhydrocodone/acetaminophen oral tablets, submitted by KemPharm, Inc., with the proposed indication of short-term (up to 14 days) management of acute pain. The product has been formulated with the intent to provide abuse-deterrent properties. Benzhydrocodone is a hydrocodone prodrug which, according to the applicant, is rapidly converted into hydrocodone by enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract. The active drugs in this fixed-dose combination are hydrocodone and acetaminophen. The applicant has submitted data to support abuse-deterrent properties for this product. The committees will be asked to discuss whether the applicant has demonstrated abuse-deterrent properties for their product that would support labeling, and whether the nasal route of abuse is relevant for combination products made up of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.

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.
