SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background FDA is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Diabetes Mellitus—Evaluating Cardiovascular Risk in New Antidiabetic Therapies to Treat Type 2 Diabetes.’’ Diabetes mellitus is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Reducing longterm cardiovascular complications in patients with diabetes should be an important goal of disease management. There are compelling data in patients with type 2 diabetes supporting a reduced risk of microvascular complications with improved long-term glycemic control. This guidance makes recommendations about how to demonstrate that a new antidiabetic therapy to treat type 2 diabetes is not associated with an unacceptable increase in cardiovascular risk. On March 3, 2008, FDA issued the draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Diabetes Mellitus: Developing Drugs and Therapeutic Biologics for Treatment and Prevention’’ (73 FR 11420). On July 1 and 2, 2008, the Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee met to discuss the role of cardiovascular assessment in the premarketing and postmarketing settings for drugs and therapeutic biologics developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. After considering the discussion at this meeting as well as other available data and information, we have determined that concerns about cardiovascular risk should be more thoroughly addressed during drug development. We are issuing this guidance to ensure that our recommendations reach all sponsors who may submit applications for approval of drugs to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. We are issuing this level 1 guidance for immediate implementation, consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). FDA is not seeking comment before implementing this guidance because of the need to immediately notify sponsors with ongoing development programs of the need to address cardiovascular risk in ongoing drug development programs. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:29 Dec 18, 2008 Jkt 217001 If FDA receives comments on this guidance, it will consider the comments and incorporate final recommendations into the final version of the March 2008 draft guidance. This guidance represents the agency’s current thinking on evaluating cardiovascular risk in new antidiabetic therapies to treat type 2 diabetes. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. II. The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This guidance refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). The collections of information in 21 CFR part 312 have been approved under 0910–0014, and the collections of information in 21 CFR part 314 have been approved under 0910–0001. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    FDA is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry 
entitled ``Diabetes Mellitus--Evaluating Cardiovascular Risk in New 
Antidiabetic Therapies to Treat Type 2 Diabetes.'' Diabetes mellitus is 
associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Reducing 
long-term cardiovascular complications in patients with diabetes should 
be an important goal of disease management. There are compelling data 
in patients with type 2 diabetes supporting a reduced risk of 
microvascular complications with improved long-term glycemic control. 
This guidance makes recommendations about how to demonstrate that a new 
antidiabetic therapy to treat type 2 diabetes is not associated with an 
unacceptable increase in cardiovascular risk.
    On March 3, 2008, FDA issued the draft guidance for industry 
entitled ``Diabetes Mellitus: Developing Drugs and Therapeutic 
Biologics for Treatment and Prevention'' (73 FR 11420). On July 1 and 
2, 2008, the Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee met 
to discuss the role of cardiovascular assessment in the premarketing 
and postmarketing settings for drugs and therapeutic biologics 
developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. After 
considering the discussion at this meeting as well as other available 
data and information, we have determined that concerns about 
cardiovascular risk should be more thoroughly addressed during drug 
development. We are issuing this guidance to ensure that our 
recommendations reach all sponsors who may submit applications for 
approval of drugs to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus.
    We are issuing this level 1 guidance for immediate implementation, 
consistent with FDA's good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 
10.115). FDA is not seeking comment before implementing this guidance 
because of the need to immediately notify sponsors with ongoing 
development programs of the need to address cardiovascular risk in 
ongoing drug development programs. If FDA receives comments on this 
guidance, it will consider the comments and incorporate final 
recommendations into the final version of the March 2008 draft 
guidance.
    This guidance represents the agency's current thinking on 
evaluating cardiovascular risk in new antidiabetic therapies to treat 
type 2 diabetes. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any 
person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative 
approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the 
applicable statutes and regulations.

II. The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    This guidance refers to previously approved collections of 
information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information 
are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). The 
collections of information in 21 CFR part 312 have been approved under 
0910-0014, and the collections of information in 21 CFR part 314 have 
been approved under 0910-0001.

    Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management 
(see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments regarding this document. 
Submit a single copy of electronic comments or two paper copies of any 
mailed comments, except that individuals may submit one paper copy. 
Comments are to be identified with the docket number found in brackets
