SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In a notice published in the Federal Register of July 26, 2007 (72 FR 41080), FDA announced the availability of a draft guidance entitled “Draft Guidance for Industry: Cell Selection Devices for Point of Care Production of Minimally Manipulated Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cells (PBSCs).”

FDA has carefully considered the comments received on the draft guidance and, since that document issued in 2007, has gained additional experience with point of care devices and the autologous cells selected by them. Based on these comments and experience, FDA believes that the draft guidance would not, if finalized in current form, reflect FDA's current thinking. For these reasons, FDA is withdrawing the draft guidance entitled “Draft Guidance for Industry: Cell Selection Devices for Point of Care Production of Minimally Manipulated Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cells (PBSCs).”
