Meeting Date: 11/2/10-11/3/10

Meeting Details:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a 2-day public hearing to obtain input on specific issues and challenges associated with the implementation of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009 (BPCI Act). The BPCI Act establishes an abbreviated approval pathway for biological products that are demonstrated to be “highly similar” (biosimilar) to, or “interchangeable” with, an FDA-licensed biological product. The purpose of this public hearing is to create a forum for interested stakeholders to provide input regarding the agency’s implementation of the statute. FDA will take the information it obtains from the public hearing into account in its implementation of the BPCI Act.

Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsPatient Engagement Advisory Committee

Meeting Date: 10/6/21-10/6/21

.

Meeting Details:

On October 6, 2021, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic ‘‘Medical Device Recalls.’’ Once a medical device is available in the U.S. marketplace and in widespread use, unforeseen problems can sometimes lead to a recall. When a device is defective or potentially harmful, recalling that product—removing it from the market or correcting the problem—is the most effective means for protecting the public. A company may recall a device after discovering a problem on its own, or after FDA raises concerns. In rare cases, FDA may require a company to recall a device. When a device is recalled, FDA reviews the company’s strategy for resolving the problem by assessing the relative degree of risk associated with the product and making sure the strategy effectively resolves the problem with the device. FDA provides transparency and communicates information when the public needs to be alerted to a serious hazard, as well as once the recall has been appropriately resolved. The recommendations provided by the committee will address factors FDA and industry should consider to effectively communicate medical device recall information to patients and the public, including but not limited to content, format, methods used to disseminate the message, and timing of communication. The committee will also consider concerns patients have about changes to their device in response to a recall and will discuss ways patient perspectives could be incorporated in FDA and industry benefit-risk decision making, as well as the healthcare provider and patient decision-making process related to a recalled medical device, including implanted devices. The meeting presentations will be heard, viewed, captioned, and recorded through an online teleconferencing platform.
