Meeting Date: 12/8/11-12/9/11

Meeting Details:

On December 8, 2011, the committees will discuss the benefits and risks of drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives in light of the emerging safety concern that the risk of venous thromboembolism (blood clots that can break loose and move within the circulatory system) associated with use of these products may be higher compared to oral contraceptives that contain the progestin, levonorgestrel. Drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives for the primary indication of pregnancy prevention include: YASMIN, YAZ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol tablets), BEYAZ, SAFYRAL (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol/levomefolate calcium tablets and levomefolate calcium tablets), Bayer HealthCare, and the generic equivalents for these products.On December 9, 2011, the committees will discuss the benefits and risks of ORTHO EVRA (norelgestromin/ethinyl estradiol transdermal system), marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., for the prevention of pregnancy. Specifically, the committees will discuss the possibly increased risk of thrombotic (blood clots) and thromboembolic events (blood clots that can break loose and move within the circulatory system) in users of ORTHO EVRA compared to women who use commonly prescribed birth control pills, as suggested by postmarketing studies.

Meeting Date: 6/28/96-6/28/96

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss the safety and efficacy of certain oral contraceptives for postcoital emergency use. Over the years, there has been increasing interest in this use by health care professionals and consumers. This use has been approved in some countries, and physicians have prescribed oral contraceptives for emergency use in the United States, although contraceptives marketed in the United States are not labeled for this use. On November 23, 1994, the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy submitted a citizen's petition requesting FDA to direct sponsors of certain oral contraceptives to amend the labeling and patient package inserts to include information regarding the use of these products for postcoital emergency contraception (Docket No. 94P-0427). FDA denied the petition but determined that it would be appropriate to discuss the scientific issues related to the safety and effectiveness of this use with the Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee to determine whether the data support the use under certain conditions.

Meeting Date: 3/29/18-3/30/18

Meeting Details:

On March 29, 2018, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information regarding a premarket approval application to market a novel continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device system, the Senseonics, Inc. Eversense CGM System. This device requires minor surgery to implant and remove, and if approved, would provide 90 days of sensor glucose values from each implanted sensor. The Eversense CGM System measures patients’ glucose concentrations from subcutaneous interstitial fluid similar to approved CGM systems. All CGM devices currently or previously marketed used electrochemistry to measure glucose in interstitial fluids, last for 3 to 11 days and are inserted via a small-gauge needle by the end user. The proposed CGM system uses a fluorescence-based measurement technique, requires minor surgery for subcutaneous implantation, and will have a 90-day sensor wear period. The proposed CGM sensor also includes a drug component (dexamethasone acetate) intended to mitigate negative effects on sensor accuracy and sensor life from the foreign body response at the sensor insertion site. The proposed intended use, as stated by the sponsor, is as follows: The Eversense CGM System continually measures glucose levels in adults (age 18 and older) with diabetes for the operating life of the sensor. The system is intended to: • Aid in the management of diabetes. • Provide real-time glucose readings. • Provide glucose trend information. • Provide alerts for the detection and prediction of episodes of low blood glucose (hypoglycemia) and high blood glucose (hyperglycemia). The system is a prescription device. Historical data from the system can be interpreted to aid in providing therapy adjustments. These adjustments should be based on patterns seen over time. On March 30, 2018, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding measuring blood glucose using capillary blood with blood glucose meters in all hospital patients, including those receiving intensive medical intervention/therapy and patients with decreased peripheral blood flow, such as with severe hypotension, shock, hyperosmolar-hyperglycemia and severe dehydration (e.g., patients in intensive care settings). Currently, FDA has cleared one glucose meter for use all over the hospital using venous and arterial blood. FDA understands that being able to make capillary blood measurements in all hospitalized patients using FDA cleared and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waived (i.e., designated as waived per the standards in the CLIA) glucose meters would be more convenient and timely for hospital staff. FDA would like to present new data from capillary blood measurements on glucose meters in patients receiving intensive medical intervention/therapy to the Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Toxicology Devices Panel. FDA would like to receive feedback from the advisory panel on the benefits and risks of measuring capillary blood using blood glucose meters in this intended use population, and the considerations for CLIA waiver for this use.
