-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice announces a forthcoming meeting of a public advisory 
committee of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The meeting will 
be open to the public.
    Name of Committee: Gastroenterology and Urology Devices Panel of 
the Medical Devices Advisory Committee.
    General Function of the Committee: To provide advice and 
recommendations to the agency on FDA's regulatory issues.
    Date and Time: The meeting will be held on June 25, 2008, from 8 
a.m. to 5 p.m.
    Location: Hilton Washington DC North/Gaithersburg, Salons A, B, and 
C, 620 Perry Pkwy., Gaithersburg, MD.
    Contact Person: Jeffrey Cooper, Center for Devices and Radiological 
Health (HFZ-470), Food and Drug Administration, 9200 Corporate Blvd., 
Rockville, MD 20850, 240-276-4151 or FDA Advisory Committee Information 
Line, 1-800-741-8138 (301-443-0572 in the Washington, DC area), code 
3014512523. Please call the Information Line for up-to-date information 
on this meeting. A notice in the Federal Register about last minute 
modifications that impact a previously announced advisory committee 
meeting cannot always be published quickly enough to provide timely 
notice. Therefore, you should always check the agency's Web site and 
call the appropriate advisory committee hot line/phone line to learn 
about possible modifications before coming to the meeting.
    Agenda: The committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote 
on a premarket approval application, sponsored by Medical Enterprises, 
Ltd., for a drug/device combination product designed to prevent 
recurrence of bladder cancer. Synergo SB-3TS 101.1 Device with 
Mitomycin C is indicated for use for prophylactic treatment of 
recurrence in patients following endoscopic removal of Ta-T1 and G1-3 
superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder (STCCB). Ta-T1 
refers to the stage of the tumor, which is a measure of how deep the 
tumor penetrates into the bladder wall, with Ta and T1 being the most 
superficial stages for raised bladder tumors. G1-3 refers to the tumor 
grade, which is a measure of how aggressive the tumor is likely to 
grow, with G1 being the least aggressive, and G3 the most. Synergo and 
Mitomycin C treatment is clinically indicated for STCCB patients of 
intermediate and high risk.
    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. Background material is 
available at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log=linklog&to=http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/acmenu.htm, click on

    Procedure: Interested persons may present data, information, or 
views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before the committee. 
Written submissions may be made to the contact person on or before June 
16, 2008. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between 
approximately 8:15 a.m. and 8:45 a.m., and between approximately 2:45

general nature of the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the

6, 2008. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. If the

scheduled open public hearing session. The contact person will notify 
interested persons regarding their request to speak by June 9, 2008.
