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: On March 5, 2010, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding clinical risks and benefits of post-market actions in response to insulin pump failures. Insulin pumps are intended for continuous delivery of insulin at set and variable rates and as an aid in the management of diabetes mellitus in persons requiring insulin. 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 Website after the meeting. Background material is available at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/default.htm. Scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee link.

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 February 22, 2010. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled immediately following lunch. Those desiring to make formal oral presentations should notify the contact person and submit a brief statement of the general nature of the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the names and addresses of proposed participants, and an indication of the approximate time requested to make their presentation on or before February 11, 2010. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. If the number of registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be reasonably accommodated during the scheduled open public hearing session, FDA may conduct a lottery to determine the speakers for the scheduled open public hearing session. The contact person will notify interested persons regarding their request to speak by February 12, 2010.
