This notice announces a forthcoming meeting of two public advisory committees of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At least one portion of the meeting will be closed to the public.
Names of Committees: Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee.
General Function of the Committees: To provide advice and recommendations to the Agency on FDA's regulatory issues.
Date and Time: The meeting will be held on September 10, 2015, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: FDA White Oak Campus, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 31 Conference Center, the Great Room (Rm. 1503), Silver Spring, MD 20993-0002.

Contact Person: Stephanie L. Begansky, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 31, Rm. 2417, Silver Spring, MD 20993-0002, 301-796-9001, FAX: 301-847-8533, email: AADPAC@fda.hhs.gov, or FDA Advisory Committee Information Line, 1-800-741-8138 (301-443-0572 in the Washington, DC area). 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 at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/default.htm and scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee meeting link, or call the advisory committee information line to learn about possible modifications before coming to the meeting.
Agenda: The committees will be asked to discuss new drug application (NDA) 206830, oxycodone immediate-release tablets, submitted by Purdue Pharma, with the proposed indication of the management of moderate to severe pain where the use of an opioid analgesic is appropriate. It has been formulated with the intent to provide abuse-deterrent properties. The pharmacokinetic data demonstrate that there is a significant food effect resulting in a significant delay in absorption and peak plasma concentration of oxycodone when taken with food. The applicant proposes to address this finding by labeling the product to be taken on an empty stomach, but patients may have difficulty complying with these instructions as the product is dosed every 4 to 6 hours as needed. The committees will be asked to discuss the potential safety risks and the potential effects on efficacy associated with the delayed peak concentration when taken with food, and the feasibility of labeling to be taken an empty stomach as a means to mitigate the potential risks. The committees will also be asked to consider whether the potential public health benefit of the product's abuse-deterrent properties are sufficient to outweigh the risk to patients who are prescribed the product for the management of pain.
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 Start Printed Page 47927meeting, 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: On September 10, 2015, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., the meeting is open to the public. Interested persons may present data, information, or views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before the committees. Written submissions may be made to the contact person on or before August 26, 2015. 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 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 August 18, 2015. 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 August 19, 2015.
