AGENCY:

Office of the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services.

ACTION:

Notice, correction.

SUMMARY:

The Department of Health and Human Services is correcting a notice that appeared in the Federal Register on July 16, 2018. The notice announced the Secretary's Declaration Regarding Emergency Use of Treatment for Uncontrolled Hemorrhage During an Emergency Involving Agents of Military Combat pursuant to section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic (FD&C) Act. On July 9, 2018, the Secretary declared that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of freeze dried plasma (FDP) for the treatment of hemorrhage or coagulopathy during an emergency involving agents of military combat (e.g., firearms, projectiles, and explosive devices) when plasma is not available for use or when the use of plasma is not practical, pursuant to section 564 of the FD&C Act, subject to the terms of any authorization issued under that section. This notice is correcting the July 16, 2018 notice to correctly state the Secretary's declaration.
