This meeting is a reschedule of a postponed meeting announced in the Federal Register of December 14, 2012 (77 FR 74486), originally scheduled for March 7, 2013. This meeting is being rescheduled due to the postponement of the March 7, 2013 Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee meeting due to unanticipated weather conditions.
The committee will discuss the new drug application (NDA) 204275 for fluticasone furoate and vilanterol dry powder inhaler (proposed tradename BREO ELLIPTA), sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline, for the long-term maintenance treatment of airflow obstruction and for reducing exacerbations in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
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 meeting, 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:
