White Oak Room
5701 Marinelli Road
The committee will discuss optimal strategies for the evaluation, interpretation, and communication of drug-drug interaction (DDI) information. FDA will seek input on: (1) best practices in DDI communication through prescription drug product labels (i.e., “package inserts”), namely: a) appropriate format for presentation (e.g. tables, graphs, text) of DDI information; b) level of detail of DDI study results; and c) appropriate wording for clinical recommendations based on empirical data vs. anticipated interactions; (2) appropriate criteria for determining whether or not to describe DDI information derived from the literature in product labels; and (3) how package insert information on DDIs is used by various end-users (e.g., prescribers, dispensers, DDI database curators) in decision making and/or communication.
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.
