Agenda

The committees will be asked to discuss new drug application (NDA) 208653, benzhydrocodone/acetaminophen oral tablets, submitted by KemPharm, Inc., with the proposed indication of short-term (up to 14 days) management of acute pain. The product has been formulated with the intent to provide abuse-deterrent properties. Benzhydrocodone is a hydrocodone prodrug which, according to the applicant, is rapidly converted into hydrocodone by enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract. The active drugs in this fixed-dose combination are hydrocodone and acetaminophen. The applicant has submitted data to support abuse-deterrent properties for this product. The committees will be asked to discuss whether the applicant has demonstrated abuse-deterrent properties for their product that would support labeling, and whether the nasal route of abuse is relevant for combination products made up of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.

Closed Presentation of Data

On May 5, 2016, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m., the meeting will be closed to permit discussion and review of trade secret and/or confidential commercial information (5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(4)). During this session, the committees will discuss the drug development program of an investigational abuse-deterrent opioid product.
