Data collection methods proposed for HMTS includes intercept interviews, telephone interviews, focus groups, online surveys, and cognitive interviews. In almost all instances, data will be collected by outside organizations under contract with CDC. For many years CDC programs have used HMTS to test and refine message concepts and test draft materials for clarity, salience, appeal, and persuasiveness to target audiences. Having this generic clearance available has enabled them to test their information and get critical health information out to the public quickly. Over the last three years, more than 20 messages have been tested using this clearance. For example: Evaluation of Emergency Preparedness Materials for Limited English Proficient Spanish Speakers. Risk communication is a top priority in CDC’s anthrax preparedness activities. The Anthrax Management Team developed materials to provide LEP Spanish-speakers with information (NIOSH) conducted a field study, Spanish Trench Safety CD–ROM, to determine the most effective way to disseminate trench safety information to Latino immigrant workers using computer-based training. Using results of this study, NIOSH produced the CD– ROM and are preparing to field test the product. As part of this project, a tutorial was also created for workers with limited computer literacy teaching them how to use the computer. The tutorial has been field tested and the English and Spanish versions will become NIOSH numbered publications. Over 12,000 respondents were queried and over 5,500 burden hours used during this time period. Because the availability of this ICR has been so critical to programs in disseminating their materials and information to the public in a timely manner, OADC is requesting a three year extension of this information collection. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 2,470. needed to increase the chances for survival in the event that bioterrorists attacked the U.S. using anthrax. Once refined, based on participant feedback, these materials will be used in creating additional public education materials to be utilized during an anthrax emergency. The lessons learned about communication with vulnerable populations have application to others who are seeking to improve communication during a domestic or global public health emergency. The Division of Diabetes Translation obtained OMB approval through HMTS for Testing of Brand Concepts, Messages and Materials for CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). Materials testing was conducted with multiple audiences, and provided the detailed level of feedback needed to make materials that resonate with each audience. Findings have also been used to inform the development and testing of a new brand for the National DPP which will be launched in 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [Docket No. FDA–2012–D–0973] I. Background Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infections: Developing Drugs for Treatment; Guidance for Industry; Availability FDA is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infections: Developing Drugs for Treatment.’’ The purpose of this guidance is to assist sponsors in the development of drugs for the treatment of cIAIs. Intra-abdominal infections including cIAIs are common in clinical practice and comprise a wide variety of clinical presentations and differing sources of infection. Different bacterial pathogens are responsible for cIAI, including Gram-negative aerobic bacteria, Grampositive bacteria, and anaerobic bacteria, including mixed infections. This guidance describes the efficacy endpoint of clinical success as resolution of the baseline signs and symptoms attributable to cIAI. The guidance provides a scientific justification for a noninferiority margin. This guidance finalizes the draft guidance of the same name issued October 1, 2012. After consideration of comments received in response to the draft guidance, FDA updated the guidance to include clarifications about the primary efficacy endpoint and the use of prior nontrial antibacterial drugs. In addition, issuance of this guidance fulfills a portion of the requirements of Title VIII, section 804 of the Food and Drug Safety and Innovation Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–144), which requires FDA to review and, as appropriate, revise not fewer than three guidance documents per year for the conduct of clinical trials with respect to antibacterial and antifungal drugs. This guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The guidance represents the Agency’s current thinking on this topic. 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. AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS. ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infections: Developing Drugs for Treatment.’’ The purpose of this guidance is to assist sponsors in the clinical development of drugs for the treatment of complicated intraabdominal infections (cIAIs). Specifically, this guidance addresses FDA’s current thinking regarding the overall drug development program for the treatment of cIAIs, including clinical trial designs to support approval of drugs. This guidance finalizes the draft guidance of the same name issued October 1, 2012. DATES: Submit either electronic or written comments on Agency guidances at any time. ADDRESSES: Submit written requests for single copies of this guidance to the Division of Drug Information, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, 10001 New Hampshire Ave., Hillandale Bldg., 4th Floor, Silver Spring, MD 20993.
