Dear Dr. Schwartz,

In your response to FDA Question 2 on September 10, 2012, regarding the filling of AS03, you confirmed that (b)(4) filling methods, ---------(b)(4)--------------------, are claimed. Please clearly state whether you are seeking approval of (b)(4) methods to be used for commercial filling. Please note that if you would like approval for filling under --(b)(4)---, you need to provide results of container closure integrity testing sufficiently sensitive to ----(b)(4)-------. In addition, you need to provide data to support that the level of ---(b)(4)--------- meets the acceptance limits throughout the shelf-life of the product, which can/should be determined as part of your stability program through CCIT testing at the last time point.
