Center for Drug Evaluation and Research

Location: Please note that due to the impact of this COVID-19 pandemic, all meeting participants will be joining this advisory committee meeting via an online teleconferencing platform.

Agenda

The Office of the Commissioner is conducting a hearing under 21 CFR 314.530 on the Center of Drug Evaluation and Research's proposal to withdraw accelerated approval of Makena (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection, 250 milligrams (mg) per milliliter (mL)). As part of the hearing process, the Obstetrics, Reproductive and Urologic Drugs Advisory Committee (the Committee) will discuss whether a confirmatory trial verified the clinical benefit of Makena and whether available evidence demonstrates that Makena is effective for its approved indication, which is to reduce the risk of preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth. The Committee will also discuss whether FDA should allow Makena to remain on the market while an appropriate confirmatory study is designed and conducted.

The hearing will be held in a virtual format. Details will be provided in a future communication in the Federal Register. Members of the public, including ANDA holders, wishing to make a formal presentation at the hearing must register at the following link by 5:00 p.m. EDT on September 6, 2022: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/B72THCF.
