  3. Team Reports
    1. Clinical – the IND continues to dominate the majority of the review time. Last week the sponsor was told that focus needed to be put on the BLA, not the IND; however, they then submitted more amendments to the IND. The sponsor wants answers on retesting in the infant P14 study and toddler P21 study . Dr. Bash agreed to draft language, for review by OVRR management, to gain support for only reviewing the BLA at this time.
    2. Statistical – the P14 submission for the IND was also reviewed and a new analysis plan was (for an assessment of agreement of the original test and re-test procedures) proposed. Review of the BLA will continue next week.
    3. CMC – Daron Freedberg – the sponsor wanted --b(4)----------------- however, rational for ---b(4)------------------ was not satisfactory. The review is in draft form and the ----b(4)------------------------------------. An IR will be sent to the sponsor asking -----b(4)----------------------------------------------
