Notice of public workshop.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop to discuss the effects of ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) on outcomes in kidney transplantation. This public workshop is intended to obtain information from health care providers, academia, and industry on various aspects of the pathophysiology, clinical management, and outcomes following IRI. The meeting will include a discussion of animal models, devices, and clinical trial design. The input from this public workshop will help in developing topics for further discussion and may serve to inform recommendations on clinical trial design for products for the mitigation of IRI and/or for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of delayed graft function (DGF) and related conditions in kidney transplant recipients.
Date and Time: The public workshop will be held on September 8, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on September 9, 2011, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

- Downstream measures of response to IRI,
- Current management strategies and outcomes in patients with DGF,
- Animal models in IRI and DGF,
- Device issues related to DGF, and
- Clinical trial issues related to the recipient in development of medical products for the management of DGF and related conditions in kidney transplantation.
The Agency encourages individuals, patient advocates, industry, consumer groups, health care professionals, researchers, and other interested persons to attend this public workshop.
