Discussion:

1. The Clinical Reviewer has identified issues to be included in an Information Request letter. These items will be forthcoming.

2. APLB is currently reviewing the proposed proprietary name MenHibrix and the product labeling.

3. The main outstanding issue thus far from an epidemiological standpoint is that they did not submit a draft synopsis or protocol for a phase 4 study which was requested at the pre-BLA stage. The epidemiology reviewers are working on what they would like to see in such a study and anticipate generating some comments that will need internal (DE/VSB) concurrence before forwarding to others on the BLA committee and ultimately conveying to the sponsor. GSK has indicated that they would like to discuss the topic with CBER, but that strategy will be to formulate our position first and convey comments in advance of a possible teleconference.

4. No other issues were presented. The committee will meet again in November.
