Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 which requires FDA to bring, at least annually, one or more drugs with Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) with elements to assure safe use (ETASU) before the Drug Safety and Risk Management (DSaRM) Advisory Committee. The Agency plans to discuss the risk management of eculizumab (SOLIRIS).

Meeting Date: 12/12/12-12/13/12

Meeting Details:

The Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 requires FDA to bring, at least annually, one or more drugs with Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) with Elements to Assure Safe Use (ETASU) before CDER's Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee (DSaRM). The Agency plans to present information on the risk management of teratogens, some of which have REMS with ETASU. On December 12, 2012, the DSaRM advisory committee will meet to discuss the various strategies used by the Agency to define and address teratogenic risk, including requiring REMS with ETASU. The discussion will include an evaluation of the different strategies and the decision framework for selecting risk management strategies for teratogens. The committee will discuss whether the risk management strategies, including REMS with ETASU, assure safe use, are not unduly burdensome to patient access to the drug, and to the extent practicable, minimize the burden to the health care delivery system. On December 13, 2012 the committee will discuss two common risk management tools used to minimize the risk of teratogens – contraception and pregnancy testing. The committee will discuss considerations for standardizing recommendations for use of these two tools.

Meeting Date: 2/9/06-2/10/06

Meeting Details:

Cases of sudden death and serious adverse events including hypertension, myocardial infarction, and stroke have been reported to the agency in association with therapeutic doses of drugs used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in both pediatric and adult populations. The few controlled clinical studies of longer term drug treatment of ADHD provided little information on cardiovascular risks. On February 9, 2006, the committee will be asked to discuss approaches that could be used to study whether these products increase the risk of adverse cardiovascular outcomes. On February 10, 2006, the committee will be briefed on developments in the Office of Drug Safety and will receive updates on the Drug Safety Oversight Board and agency actions for the COX-2 selective Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and the risk management program for the isotretinoin products.

Meeting Details:

This is the first in a series of meetings related to the issues in drug safety and FDA. This 2 day meeting will explore issues related to FDA's risk assessment program for marketed drugs. There are a number of methods that FDA uses in risk assessment of marketed drugs, including review and analysis of spontaneous reports of adverse events, drug use data, healthcare administrative data, epidemiologic and observational studies, clinical trials, and active surveillance systems. Considerations will include the advantages and disadvantages of the current system for safety signal detection, and proposals for short-term and long-term ways to improve the current system.
