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: On July 26, 2011, the committee will discuss presentations by the Office of Generic Drugs (OGD) on bioequivalence issues and quality standards relative to narrow therapeutic index (NTI) drug products as a class. In response to feedback during the April 13, 2010, Advisory Committee for Pharmaceutical Science and Clinical Pharmacology (ACPS-CP) meeting, the committee will further discuss the definition and list of NTI drugs, as well as proposed bioequivalence standards for these products. The committee will also receive awareness presentations relevant to OGD's ongoing focus on quality and safety of generic drug products. Presentations will outline current activities seeking to better understand the impact of formulation and quality on the performance of generic drug products and current thinking related to potential regulatory pathways for these issues.
FDA intends to make background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting. If FDA is unable to post the background material on its Web site prior to the meeting, the background material will be made publicly available at the location of the advisory committee meeting, and the background material will be posted on FDA's Web site after the meeting. Background material is available at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/default.htm. Scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee link.
Procedure: Interested persons may present data, information, or views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before the committee. Written submissions may be made to the contact person on or before July 19, 2011. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between approximately 11 a.m. to 12 noon, and 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.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 July 12, 2011. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited.
