FDA regrets that it was unable to publish this notice 15 days prior to the Clinical Pharmacology Subcommittee of the Advisory Committee for Pharmaceutical Science meeting. Because the agency believes there is some urgency to bring these issues to public discussion and qualified members of the Clinical Pharmacology Subcommittee of the Advisory Committee for Pharmaceutical Science were available at this time, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs concluded that it was in the public interest to hold this meeting even if there was not sufficient time for the customary 15-day public notice.
Notice of this meeting is given under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. app. 2).Start Signature
Dated: March 25, 2003.
