AgendaThe committee will discuss and make recommendations on the premarket notification application for the Fujirebio HE4 EIA kit and associated Risk of Malignancy algorithm (ROMATM) Test. The HE4 EIA is an enzyme immunometric assay for the quantitative determination of HE4 in human serum. The HE4 EIA, used in conjunction with the ARCHITECT CA 125 II assay, creates a predictive probability of epithelial ovarian cancer using a mathematical function referred to as the ROMATM, for use in premenopausal and postmenopausal women presenting with an adnexal mass who have already been referred to an oncologic specialist and are scheduled for surgery. Subjects categorized as low risk for epithelial ovarian cancer using the ROMATM value may have surgical intervention performed by a non-oncology specialist. The results must be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical findings in accordance with standard clinical management guidelines. The assay is not indicated as an aid in a decision to proceed to surgery. 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 Web site after the meeting. Background material is available at http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/acmenu.htm, click on the year 2008 and scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee link.

Written submissions may be made to the contact person on or before November 19, 2008. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled for approximately 30 minutes at the beginning of committee deliberations and for approximately 30 minutes near the end of the deliberations.

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.
