This notice announces a forthcoming meeting of a public advisory committee of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The meeting will be open to the public.

General Function of the Committee: To provide advice and recommendations to the Agency on FDA's regulatory issues.
Date and Time: The meeting will be held on April 17, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. This meeting is being rescheduled because of a postponed meeting announced in the Federal Start Printed Page 17414Register of December 14, 2012 (77 FR 74486), originally scheduled for March 7, 2013.

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 meeting 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 April 9, 2013. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between approximately 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Those individuals interested in making formal oral presentations, including those who had previously requested time to speak at the originally scheduled March 7, 2013, Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee meeting, 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 April 1, 2013. Any individuals who requested time to speak at the originally scheduled March 7, 2013, Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee meeting, will need to follow the instructions in this document to request time to speak at the April 17, 2013, Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee, meeting as any previous requests to speak at the originally scheduled meeting do not convey to this new April 17, 2013, Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee meeting. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. If the number of registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be reasonably accommodated during the scheduled open public hearing session, FDA may conduct a lottery to determine the speakers for the scheduled open public hearing session. The contact person will notify interested persons regarding their request to speak by April 2, 2013.
