AgendaOn November 18, 2008, the committee will receive an update on safety information collected on dermal fillers in the commercial setting, discuss current premarket and postmarket approved study designs, and make recommendations on general issues concerning the study of various dermal fillers. In addition, the committee will discuss the design of clinical trials for future premarket submissions seeking approval of dermal fillers for new intended uses. On November 19, 2008, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on general issues related to the clinical trials of cosmetic devices.
