A notice in the Federal Register about last minute modifications that impact a previously announced advisory committee meeting cannot always be published quickly enough to provide timely notice. Therefore, you should always check the Agency's Web site and call the appropriate advisory committee hot line/phone line to learn about possible modifications before coming to the meeting.

Agenda: The meeting will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., unless public participation does not last that long; from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the meeting will be closed to permit discussion and review of trade secret and/or confidential commercial information.

FDA generally makes background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting or follows other procedures to make such material available to the public. There is no background material that is publicly available for this meeting.

Interested persons may present data, information, or views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before the committee.

Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between approximately 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Those individuals interested in making formal oral presentations should notify the contact person and submit a brief statement of the general nature of the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the names and addresses of proposed participants, and an indication of the approximate time requested to make their presentation on or before June 27, 2011.
