CDC and the appropriate state and/or local public health authority(ies) are also authorized to make available additional information relating to the emergency use of authorized oseltamivir phosphate products that is consistent with, and does not exceed, the terms of this letter of authorization. The emergency use of authorized oseltamivir phosphate products as described in this letter of authorization must comply with the conditions above and all other terms of this authorization. V. Duration of Authorization This EUA will be effective until the declaration of emergency is terminated under section 564(b)(2) of the Act or the EUA is revoked under section 564(g) of the Act. Joshua M. Sharfstein, M.D. Principal Deputy Commissioner Acting Commissioner of Food and Drugs 1 FDA is authorizing the emergency use of Tamiflu (oseltamivir phosphate) (30 mg, 45 mg, and 75 mg) capsules and oral suspension for treatment and prophylaxis of influenza as described in the scope section of this letter (Section II). For ease of reference, this letter of authorization will use the terms ‘‘certain oseltamivir phosphate product(s)’’ and ‘‘authorized oseltamivir phosphate product(s).’’ 2 No other criteria of issuance have been prescribed by regulation under section 564(c)(4) of the Act. 2 No other criteria of issuance have been prescribed by regulation under section 564(c)(4) of the Act. 3 The following points should be considered before initiating treatment or prophylaxis with oseltamivir phosphate products. Oseltamivir phosphate products are not a substitute for early vaccination on an annual basis as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Influenza viruses change over time. Emergence of resistance mutations could decrease drug effectiveness. Other factors (for example, changes in viral virulence) might also diminish clinical benefit of antiviral drugs. Prescribers should consider available information on influenza drug susceptibility patterns and treatment effects when deciding whether to use oseltamivir phosphate products. 4 It is possible that public health officials or other volunteers might distribute authorized oseltamivir phosphate products to recipients, if permitted, in accordance with applicable state and local law and/or in accordance with the public health and medical emergency response of the Authority Having Jurisdiction to prescribe, administer, deliver, distribute, or dispense the covered countermeasures, and their officials, agents, employees, contractors, or volunteers following a declaration of an emergency. For ease of reference, this letter will use the term ‘‘health care provider(s)’’ to refer collectively to these individuals. 5 Please note that with respect to authorized oseltamivir phosphate products for use in patients less than 1 year old, the conclusions above are based on limited data available for review under the limited timeframe given the circumstances of the emergency. The conclusions above may evolve as the emergency circumstances evolve and as more information becomes available. (Please note that certain written emergency use information was also amended).

In fulfilling its responsibilities under the act, FDA among other things, directs its activities toward promoting and protecting the public health by ensuring the safety and security of foods (Appendix A). To accomplish its mission, FDA must stay abreast of the latest developments in research and also communicate with stakeholders about complex scientific and public health issues. Increased development of research, education and outreach partnerships with the Marine Environmental Science ConsortiumDauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) will greatly contribute to FDA’s mission. The DISL is one of Alabama’s most valuable assets and adds immeasurably to the quality of life in the State and beyond. The DISL network of 21 institutions enrolls students worldwide in degree programs delivered in classrooms, laboratories, education centers and online. The DISL nationally ranked programs, leading-edge research collaborations, and innovative business partnerships provide an environment to support diverse multidisciplinary exchanges with FDA. The scientific, public health and policy expertise within FDA provide opportunities for collaborations that support the DISL mission and strategic themes to provide access to high-quality education, research discovery, and knowledgebased services responsive to both the promises and demands of the state and the nation in the new century. B. Research Objectives The FDA Gulf Coast Seafood Laboratory (GCSL) and the Marine Environmental Science Consortium of the DISL (the Parties) have a shared interest in scientific progress in the PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38655 diverse disciplines that directly and indirectly affect seafood safety and human and animal health.

The types of activities expected to develop from this agreement include: • Exchanges between university faculty and staff and FDA scientists and staff; • Educational opportunities for qualified students (graduate), staff members and faculty members in the Parties’ laboratories, classroom and offices; • Joint meetings for education and research; • Research collaborations; • Cooperative international activities including outreach; and • Sharing of unique facilities and equipment for increased cost efficiencies for scientific endeavors; • Promulgation and communication of identified collaborative efforts through appropriate means; • Adjunct, affiliates and research facility appointments for appropriate FDA professional staff, provided that appointment of such candidates will advance specific programmatic objectives of the parties as appropriate, and provided that such appointments comply with university policies on appointment of facility/affiliates; • In an effort to enhance collaborative interactions and communication between both institutions, FDA and DISL will collaborate in the development of regular workshops where faculty from all the institutions within the DISL and FDA scientists and staff share information about on going research, education and outreach efforts of mutual interest. C. Eligibility Information Competition is limited to the DISL. There are no other sources that can provide the required proximity to the FDA/GCSL and independent marine fieldwork capability required.
