Dear Dr. Schwartz,
We have the following comments regarding your U.S. Pharmacovigilance Plan (PVP) for Influenza A (H5N1) Virus Monovalent Vaccine (Version 2: July 2012) provided in your July 18, 2012, submission:
1. Sections 18.104.22.168.9 (NARCOLEPSY) and 2.3.2 (IMPORTANT POTENTIAL RISKS) of the PVP do not mention the narcolepsy cases after vaccination with Arepanrix. Please revise these sections accordingly to include these cases.
2. In Section 3.1.1, you stated, “Prior to an officially-declared H5N1 influenza pandemic, routine pharmacovigilance will be performed for Q-Pan H5N1 vaccine.” Please clarify what you mean by routine pharmacovigilance in the context of a vaccine that is going to be in the Strategic National Stockpile, and will not be marketed.
Please submit your responses in an amendment to the BLA submission.
If you have any questions about this communication, please contact Carmen M. Collazo. Thank you!
