Date Summary of change
07/10/2018 Revised to correct a typographical error.
05/15/2018 Modified REMS materials to reflect expansion of the PrEP indication to include the adolescent patient population based on the revisions to the indication.
12/08/2017 Modified to change the graphics for the SSS REMS educational materials, including a change in color scheme and removal of Truvada brand elements.
09/21/2017 Revised to correct a typographical error (s).
06/08/2017 Modified to establish a Single Shared System (SSS) REMS for the elements to assure safe use required for the reference listed drug (RLD) Truvada and ANDAs referencing Truvada, called the emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate REMS Program, which will become applicable on the date of full approval of the first ANDA referencing Truvada. The modification being approved results in a two-part REMS consisting of: (1) the requirements previously approved Truvada REMS; and (2) the new single, shared system for emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate products. The requirements of the previously approved Truvada REMS will remain applicable until full approval of the first ANDA, at which time, they will automatically be replaced by the requirements of the single, shared system.
