(2) Occupational disease or infection. Occupational illnesses and infections generally involve delayed onset of symptoms following exposure to a harmful workplace substance or condition. If the individual claims compensation for an occupational illness or infection, the date of injury is the date the individual was exposed to the substance or condition. (3) Hearing loss. If the individual claims compensation for hearing loss, the date of injury is the date the individual was exposed to harmful workplace noise or other stimulus that is capable of causing hearing loss. (4) Death-benefit claims. If the individual claims compensation for an employee’s death, the date of injury is the date of the workplace event or incident that caused, hastened, or contributed to the death. (5) Cumulative trauma. If the individual claims compensation for cumulative trauma, in which multiple traumas contribute to an overall medical condition, such as a neck condition resulting from repetitive motion, the date of injury is any date on which a workplace trauma worsened the individual’s condition. A workplace event will not be deemed a contributing trauma if a corresponding worsening of the condition is due solely to its natural progression, rather than the workplace event. (b) If the date of injury is before February 17, 2009, the individual’s entitlement is governed by section 2(3)(F) as it existed prior to the 2009 amendment. (c) If the date of injury is on or after February 17, 2009, the individual’s entitlement is governed by the 2009 amendment to section 2(3)(F). ■ 8.

ACTION: Final rule. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the regulation classifying ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test systems to restrict these devices so that a prescribed warning statement that addresses a risk identified in the special controls guidance document must be in a black box and must appear in all labeling, advertising, and promotional material. The black box warning mitigates the risk to health associated with off-label use as a screening test, stand-alone diagnostic test, or as a test to determine whether or not to proceed with surgery. DATES: Effective Date: January 30, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. What is the background of this final rule? A. Ovarian Adnexal Mass Assessment Score Test System An ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system is a device that measures one or more proteins in serum or plasma. It yields a single result for the likelihood that an adnexal pelvic mass in a woman for whom surgery is planned, is malignant. The test is for adjunctive use, in the context of a negative primary clinical and radiological evaluation, to augment the identification of patients whose gynecologic surgery requires oncology expertise and resources. B. Identified Risk to Health The ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system is not indicated for use as a screening or diagnostic test for ovarian cancer. Off-label use of the test (e.g., in patients who are not already identified as needing surgery for pelvic mass or without reference to an PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 82129 independent clinical/radiological evaluation of the patient), may lead to a high frequency of unnecessary further testing and surgery due to false positive results, or to delay in tumor diagnosis due to false negative results. II. Why is FDA requiring black box warnings on ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system labeling, advertising, and promotional material? FDA has determined that in order to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness, it is necessary to restrict the ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system to sale, distribution, and use with labeling, advertising, and promotional material that bears a warning statement in a black box that alerts users to the risk associated with off-label use as a screening test, stand-alone diagnostic test, or as a test to determine whether or not to proceed with surgery. In the Federal Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16292 at 12694), FDA published a final rule that classified this device into class II and established as a special control the guidance entitled ‘‘Class II Special Controls Guidance Document: Ovarian Adnexal Mass Assessment Score Test System’’ that recommends a black box warning to address the risk of off-label use. In the Federal Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16425), FDA published a notice of availability of this special controls guidance document. However, FDA believes it is necessary to require this warning in labeling and advertising by restricting the device under section 520(e) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360j(e)). In the Federal Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16350 at 16352), FDA published a proposed rule to require the black box warning. For devices that have significant risks that would make the devices unsafe if used inappropriately, FDA may require that the risks be explained in warning statements placed in a black box that is displayed prominently in the labeling, advertising, and promotional material to ensure awareness by the end user. Awareness of these important risks by the end user enables these devices to be used safely. In this case, a prominent black box warning, which alerts the user to the limitations of this device, is necessary in all labeling, advertising, and promotional materials to allow ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system devices to be used safely. The prominent black box warning must read as follows: E:\FR\FM\30DER1.SGM 30DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 251 / Friday, December 30, 2011 / Rules and Regulations III. What comments did FDA receive on this rule? In the Federal Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16350 at 16352), FDA announced the proposed rule to require the black box warning. Comments on the proposed rule were due by May 23, 2011. FDA received one comment in the docket for the proposed rule from a consumer. The comment supported the proposed rule. IV. What is the legal authority for this final rule? FDA is issuing this final rule under the authority of section 520(e) of the FD&C Act, which authorizes FDA to restrict sale, distribution, and use of devices upon certain conditions. FDA is also issuing this final rule under general device and administrative provisions of the FD&C Act (sections 501, 510, 513, 515, 520, and 701 (21 U.S.C. 351, 360, 360c, 360e, 360j, and 371, respectively)). tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES V. What is the environmental impact of this final rule? FDA has determined under 21 CFR 25.34(b) and (f) that this action is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required. VI. What is the economic impact of this final rule? FDA has examined the impacts of the final rule under Executive Order 12866, Executive Order 13563, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), and the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4). Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct Agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and equity). The Agency believes that this final rule is VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:50 Dec 29, 2011 Jkt 226001 not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. The Regulatory Flexibility Act requires Agencies to analyze regulatory options that would minimize any significant impact of a rule on small entities. Because this final rule strengthens existing cautions against misuse of a product, the Agency certifies that the final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Section 202(a) of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires that Agencies prepare a written statement, which includes an assessment of anticipated costs and benefits, before proposing ‘‘any rule that includes any Federal mandate that may result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100,000,000 or more (adjusted annually for inflation) in any one year.’’ The current threshold after adjustment for inflation is $136 million, using the most current (2010) Implicit Price Deflator for the Gross Domestic Product. FDA does not expect this final rule to result in any 1-year expenditure that would meet or exceed this amount. An ovarian adnexal mass assessment test system is a device that measures one or more proteins in serum to yield a single result for the likelihood that an adnexal pelvic mass in a woman is malignant. Such a test would identify women whose planned gynecologic surgery would benefit from referral to a gynecological oncologist, despite negative results from other clinical and radiographic tests for ovarian cancer. In considering the appropriate level of regulatory oversight for this device, FDA concluded in classifying the device that general and special controls to minimize the risk of false positive and false negative results, and risks associated with improper off-label use would provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the ovarian adnexal mass assessment test system. The special controls guidance recommends use of a black box warning to minimize PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 these risks. Without such a strong warning, ovarian adnexal mass assessment test systems might be used as a screening test, stand-alone diagnostic test, or as a test to determine whether or not to proceed with surgery. Off-label use of the test or the use of test results without consideration of other diagnostic testing and clinical assessment could pose a risk for morbidity and mortality due to nonreferral for oncologic evaluation and treatment. In order to require the specific black box warning on labeling and on all advertising and promotional materials for the device, FDA is issuing this final rule under section 520(e) of the FD&C Act. Through this action, the Agency requires a black box warning on product labeling, advertising, and promotional materials for ovarian adnexal mass assessment test systems. This warning will make users aware of the limitations of this device and the serious risks associated with its misuse. With the addition of this black box warning to product labeling, advertising, and marketing materials, the Agency concludes there will be a reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of ovarian adnexal mass assessment test systems. The economic impact of this final rule is expected to be very small. We are aware of a single manufacturer producing a single product that will be affected by this black box warning. The manufacturer should be able to incorporate the warning in the course of developing its product labeling. The admonition against off-label use for this device already exists, so the addition of this type of warning is not expected to have a significant effect on the market for this product. The expected impact of this final rule on the market for this product would be a reduction in offlabel use among the small number of users who would be undeterred by a less visible warning.

How does the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 apply to this final rule? FDA concludes that labeling provisions of this final rule are not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget because they do not constitute a ‘‘collection of information’’ under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Rather, the black box warning on all labeling, advertising, and promotional materials for ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system devices is a ‘‘public disclosure of information originally supplied by the Federal Government to the recipient for the purpose of disclosure to the public.’’ (see 5 CFR 1320.3(c)(2)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. What is the background of this final rule?

A. Ovarian Adnexal Mass Assessment Score Test System

    An ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system is a device 
that measures one or more proteins in serum or plasma. It yields a 
single result for the likelihood that an adnexal pelvic mass in a woman 
for whom surgery is planned, is malignant. The test is for adjunctive 
use, in the context of a negative primary clinical and radiological 
evaluation, to augment the identification of patients whose gynecologic 
surgery requires oncology expertise and resources.

B. Identified Risk to Health

    The ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system is not 
indicated for use as a screening or diagnostic test for ovarian cancer. 
Off-label use of the test (e.g., in patients who are not already 
identified as needing surgery for pelvic mass or without reference to 
an independent clinical/radiological evaluation of the patient), may 
lead to a high frequency of unnecessary further testing and surgery due 
to false positive results, or to delay in tumor diagnosis due to false 
negative results.

II. Why is FDA requiring black box warnings on ovarian adnexal mass 
assessment score test system labeling, advertising, and promotional 
material?

    FDA has determined that in order to provide reasonable assurance of 
safety and effectiveness, it is necessary to restrict the ovarian 
adnexal mass assessment score test system to sale, distribution, and 
use with labeling, advertising, and promotional material that bears a 
warning statement in a black box that alerts users to the risk 
associated with off-label use as a screening test, stand-alone 
diagnostic test, or as a test to determine whether or not to proceed 
with surgery. In the Federal Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16292 at 
12694), FDA published a final rule that classified this device into 
class II and established as a special control the guidance entitled 
``Class II Special Controls Guidance Document: Ovarian Adnexal Mass 
Assessment Score Test System'' that recommends a black box warning to 
address the risk of off-label use. In the Federal Register of March 23, 
2011 (76 FR 16425), FDA published a notice of availability of this 
special controls guidance document. However, FDA believes it is 
necessary to require this warning in labeling and advertising by 
restricting the device under section 520(e) of the Federal Food, Drug, 
and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360j(e)). In the Federal 
Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16350 at 16352), FDA published a 
proposed rule to require the black box warning.
    For devices that have significant risks that would make the devices 
unsafe if used inappropriately, FDA may require that the risks be 
explained in warning statements placed in a black box that is displayed 
prominently in the labeling, advertising, and promotional material to 
ensure awareness by the end user. Awareness of these important risks by 
the end user enables these devices to be used safely. In this case, a 
prominent black box warning, which alerts the user to the limitations 
of this device, is necessary in all labeling, advertising, and 
promotional materials to allow ovarian adnexal mass assessment score 
test system devices to be used safely. The prominent black box warning 
must read as follows:

III. What comments did FDA receive on this rule?

    In the Federal Register of March 23, 2011 (76 FR 16350 at 16352), 
FDA announced the proposed rule to require the black box warning. 
Comments on the proposed rule were due by May 23, 2011. FDA received 
one comment in the docket for the proposed rule from a consumer. The 
comment supported the proposed rule.

IV. What is the legal authority for this final rule?

    FDA is issuing this final rule under the authority of section 
520(e) of the FD&C Act, which authorizes FDA to restrict sale, 
distribution, and use of devices upon certain conditions. FDA is also 
issuing this final rule under general device and administrative 
provisions of the FD&C Act (sections 501, 510, 513, 515, 520, and 701 
(21 U.S.C. 351, 360, 360c, 360e, 360j, and 371, respectively)).

V. What is the environmental impact of this final rule?

    FDA has determined under 21 CFR 25.34(b) and (f) that this action 
is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a 
significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an 
environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is 
required.

VI. What is the economic impact of this final rule?

    FDA has examined the impacts of the final rule under Executive 
Order 12866, Executive Order 13563, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 
U.S.C. 601-612), and the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 
104-4). Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct Agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, when 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety, and other advantages; distributive impacts; and 
equity). The Agency believes that this final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.
    The Regulatory Flexibility Act requires Agencies to analyze 
regulatory options that would minimize any significant impact of a rule 
on small entities. Because this final rule strengthens existing 
cautions against misuse of a product, the Agency certifies that the 
final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.
    Section 202(a) of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 requires 
that Agencies prepare a written statement, which includes an assessment 
of anticipated costs and benefits, before proposing ``any rule that 
includes any Federal mandate that may result in the expenditure by 
State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the 
private sector, of $100,000,000 or more (adjusted annually for 
inflation) in any one year.'' The current threshold after adjustment 
for inflation is $136 million, using the most current (2010) Implicit 
Price Deflator for the Gross Domestic Product. FDA does not expect this 
final rule to result in any 1-year expenditure that would meet or 
exceed this amount.
    An ovarian adnexal mass assessment test system is a device that 
measures one or more proteins in serum to yield a single result for the 
likelihood that an adnexal pelvic mass in a woman is malignant. Such a 
test would identify women whose planned gynecologic surgery would 
benefit from referral to a gynecological oncologist, despite negative 
results from other clinical and radiographic tests for ovarian cancer.
    In considering the appropriate level of regulatory oversight for 
this device, FDA concluded in classifying the device that general and 
special controls to minimize the risk of false positive and false 
negative results, and risks associated with improper off-label use 
would provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the 
ovarian adnexal mass assessment test system. The special controls 
guidance recommends use of a black box warning to minimize these risks. 
Without such a strong warning, ovarian adnexal mass assessment test 
systems might be used as a screening test, stand-alone diagnostic test, 
or as a test to determine whether or not to proceed with surgery. Off-
label use of the test or the use of test results without consideration 
of other diagnostic testing and clinical assessment could pose a risk 
for morbidity and mortality due to nonreferral for oncologic evaluation 
and treatment.
    In order to require the specific black box warning on labeling and 
on all advertising and promotional materials for the device, FDA is 
issuing this final rule under section 520(e) of the FD&C Act. Through 
this action, the Agency requires a black box warning on product 
labeling, advertising, and promotional materials for ovarian adnexal 
mass assessment test systems. This warning will make users aware of the 
limitations of this device and the serious risks associated with its 
misuse. With the addition of this black box warning to product 
labeling, advertising, and marketing materials, the Agency concludes 
there will be a reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of 
ovarian adnexal mass assessment test systems.
    The economic impact of this final rule is expected to be very 
small. We are aware of a single manufacturer producing a single product 
that will be affected by this black box warning. The manufacturer 
should be able to incorporate the warning in the course of developing 
its product labeling. The admonition against off-label use for this 
device already exists, so the addition of this type of warning is not 
expected to have a significant effect on the market for this product. 
The expected impact of this final rule on the market for this product 
would be a reduction in off-label use among the small number of users 
who would be undeterred by a less visible warning.
    The Regulatory Flexibility Act requires Agencies to analyze 
regulatory options that would minimize any

[[Page 82131]]

significant impact of a rule on small entities. This final rule would 
impose almost no cost on manufacturers. The black box warning will 
strengthen an existing admonition against off-label use and will not 
significantly affect usage. Impacts on any entities will be so small as 
to be difficult to quantify. For these reasons, the Agency certifies 
that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.

VII. How does the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 apply to this final 
rule?

    FDA concludes that labeling provisions of this final rule are not 
subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget because they 
do not constitute a ``collection of information'' under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). Rather, the black box 
warning on all labeling, advertising, and promotional materials for 
ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test system devices is a ``public 
disclosure of information originally supplied by the Federal Government 
to the recipient for the purpose of disclosure to the public.'' (see 5 
CFR 1320.3(c)(2)).

VIII. What are the federalism impacts of this final rule?

    FDA has analyzed this final rule in accordance with the principles 
set forth in Executive Order 13132. Section 4(a) of the Executive order 
requires Agencies to ``construe * * * a Federal statute to preempt 
State law only where the statute contains an express preemption 
provision or there is some other clear evidence that the Congress 
intended preemption of State law, or where the exercise of State 
authority conflicts with the exercise of Federal authority under the 
Federal statute.'' Federal law includes an express preemption provision 
that preempts certain State requirements ``different from or in 
addition to'' certain Federal requirements applicable to devices (21 
U.S.C. 360k; See Medtronic, Inc. v. Lohr, 518 U.S. 470 (1996); Riegel 
v. Medtronic, Inc., 552 U.S. 312 (2008)). This final rule creates a 
requirement under 21 U.S.C. 360k for a black box warning statement that 
must appear in all advertising, labeling, and promotional material for 
ovarian adnexal mass assessment score test systems.
