Pediatric Ethics Subcommittee of the Pediatric Advisory Committee

FDA Date Time Location
Office of the Commissioner September 10, 2004 8:30a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Double Tree Hotel
Regency Room
1750 Rockville Pike
Rockville, MD

On Friday, September 10, 2004, the Pediatric Ethics Subcommittee of the Pediatric Advisory Committee will meet to discuss a referral by an Institution Review Board (IRB) of a proposed clinical investigation that involves both an FDA-regulated product and research involving children as subjects that is conducted or supported by HHS. The proposed clinical investigation is entitled ‘‘Effects of a Single Dose of Dextroamphetamine in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): A Functional Magnetic Resonance Study.’’ Because the proposed clinical investigation would be regulated by FDA, and conducted or supported by HHS, both FDA and the Office for Human Research Protections, HHS, will participate in the meeting.

After presentation of an overview of the IRB referral process, background information on ADHD, an overview of the protocol and the referring IRB’s deliberations on the protocol, and a summary of public comments received concerning whether the protocol should proceed, the subcommittee will discuss the proposed protocol and develop a recommendation regarding whether the protocol should proceed. The subcommittee’s recommendation will then be presented to the FDA Pediatric Advisory Committee on September 15, 2004; the announcement of the September 15, 2004, meeting can be found elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.

Also elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register is a document announcing a public comment period concerning whether the proposed clinical investigation should proceed. Information regarding submitting comments during that period is contained in that document.

Background material and meeting information will become available no later than one business day before the meeting.

Electronic copies of the documents for public review can be viewed at the Pediatric Advisory Committee (PAC) Docket site at http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/acmenu.htm. Electronic comments should be submitted to http://www.fda.gov/dockets/ecomments. Select Docket Number 2004N–0337, entitled ‘‘Subpart D IRB Referral’’ and follow the prompts to submit your statement.
