Subject: Comments on 9/29/08 BLA Submission
Following are some statistical comments RE: September 29, 2008, HPV-008 RAP submission to the BLA. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional clarification.
1) There are more than 30 exploratory objectives to be evaluated in the Reporting and Analysis Plan for efficacy for HPV-008. In these analyses, Type I errors are not adjusted for multiple comparisons. Please acknowledge that results based on these analyses cannot be used to support post-licensure supplements for labeling changes.
2) Please refer to page 38, section 4.5.3. Given that the number of breakthrough cases will not be large, too many covariates presented in the Cox regression models may cause over-adjustment. In addition, collinearity between covariates may emerge. Please comment.
3) Please note some minor editing changes to be made on page 13: Please add “HRW (=High-risk (oncogenic) HPV types without HPV-16 or HPV-18: HPV-31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68)” in the fourth paragraph
