Notice.

SUMMARY:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled “Attachment to Guidance on Antiviral Product Development—Conducting and Submitting Virology Studies to the Agency: Guidance for Submitting HIV-1 Resistance Data.” The purpose of this guidance is to assist sponsors in submitting human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) clinical virology data that are important for supporting clinical trials of products in development for the treatment of HIV. HIV resistance data submitted in appropriately formatted datasets are critical components in the review of investigational antiviral products for the treatment of HIV. The information in this guidance will facilitate the development of anti-HIV products. This draft guidance revises the guidance for industry entitled “Attachment to Guidance on Antiviral Product Development—Conducting and Submitting Virology Studies to the Agency: Guidance for Submitting HIV Resistance Data” issued on June 5, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled “Attachment to Guidance on Antiviral Product Development—Conducting and Submitting Virology Studies to the Agency: Guidance for Submitting HIV-1 Resistance Data.” The purpose of this guidance is to assist sponsors in submitting HIV clinical virology data that are important for supporting clinical trials of products in development for the treatment of HIV. This guidance revises and replaces the guidance on submitting HIV resistance data published in June 2006. The revised guidance provides the format, recommended definitions, standardization of column headings and variables, and recommended data for submission of HIV resistance datasets.

This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA's good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the Agency's current thinking on submitting HIV clinical virology data. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations.
