Dear Mr. Torre:
We have approved your request to supplement your biologics license application for Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human), to include an additional strength, 10% immunoglobulin concentration, of the product.
Please submit all final printed labeling at the time of use and include implementation information on FDA Form 356h and FDA Form 2567 as appropriate. Please provide content of labeling in Structured Product Labeling format. Please provide carton and container labeling in Structured Product Labeling format, as well as three original paper copies
In addition, you may wish to submit two draft copies of the proposed introductory advertising and promotional labeling with an FDA Form 2253 to the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, Advertising and Promotional Labeling Branch, HFM-602, 1401 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852-1448.
All promotional claims must be consistent with and not contrary to approved labeling. You should not make a comparative promotional claim or claim of superiority over other products unless you have substantial evidence or substantial clinical experience to support such claims [21 CFR 202.1(e)(6)].
You must submit adverse experience reports in accordance with the adverse experience reporting requirements for licensed biological products (21 CFR 600.80) and you must submit distribution reports as described in 21 CFR 600.81. Please generate separate postmarketing adverse experience reports (PAERs) for Flebogamma 5% and Flebogamma 10%. You should submit postmarketing adverse experience reports and distribution reports to the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology HFM-210, Food and Drug Administration, 1401 Rockville Pike, Suite 200N, Rockville, MD 20852-1448. Prominently identify all adverse experience reports as described in 21 CFR 600.80. Per 21 CFR 600.2(f), please refer to http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CentersOffices/CBER/ucm106001.htm for updated mailing address information.
In addition, you must submit adverse event reports for any infectious disease transmission within 15 days after learning of the event. Infectious disease transmission refers to an adverse event that involves suspected or confirmed transmission of an infectious agent, whether the recipient develops the infectious disease or only has serologic or other evidence. If an infectious disease transmission event is serious and unexpected, you must submit a 15-day “alert report,” as required under 21 CFR 600.80 (c)(1)(i). Infectious disease transmission events that do not meet criteria for expedited submission require periodic reports and must be submitted as individual case reports within 15 days, as authorized under 21 CFR 600.80(c)(2)(i). You should submit reports for all other non-expedited adverse events under the periodic reporting requirements specified in 21 CFR 600.80(c)(2).
We will include information contained in the above-referenced supplement in your biologics license application file.
