Accordingly, the Agency will continue to list PROLIXIN (fluphenazine hydrochloride) tablets, 1 mg, 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg, in the ‘‘Discontinued Drug Product List’’ section of the Orange Book. The ‘‘Discontinued Drug Product List’’ delineates, among other items, drug products that have been discontinued from marketing for reasons other than safety or effectiveness. ANDAs that refer to PROLIXIN (fluphenazine hydrochloride) tablets, 1 mg, 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg, may be approved by the Agency as long as they meet all other legal and regulatory requirements for the approval of ANDAs. If FDA determines that labeling for this drug product should be revised to meet current standards, the Agency will advise ANDA applicants to submit such labeling. Dated: August 3, 2018.

Stabilized Group 2 Influenza Hemagglutinin Stem Region Trimers and Uses Thereof Description of Technology: Researchers at the Vaccine Research Center of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) have designed influenza vaccine candidates based on group 2 influenza hemagglutinin (HA) proteins. These group 2 HA proteins were engineered to remove the highly variable head region and stabilize the remaining stem region. The researchers then fused the engineered group 2 HA stabilized stem with a ferritin subunit. The resulting fusion protein can self-assemble into nanoparticles which display group 2 HA stem domain trimers on their surface. These immunogens elicit crossreactive antibodies to group 2 influenza viruses and could be used in combination with group 1 HA stemferritin immunogens as a universal influenza vaccine. Interestingly, a recent study by Andrews et al., Sci. Immunol. 2, eaan2676 (2017), suggests that crossreactive group 1/group 2 HA stem antibodies may be more likely to be elicited in humans by a group 2 HA immunogen. This technology is available for licensing for commercial development in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404. Potential Commercial Applications: • Use as a broadly protective influenza vaccine Competitive Advantages: • Elicits antibodies to both group 1 and group 2 influenza A viruses • Nucleic acid or recombinant proteinbased vaccine • Increased ease of production compared to current seasonal influenza vaccines Development Stage: • In vivo (animal studies) Inventors: Jeffrey C.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Aug 08, 2018 Jkt 244001 Abstract: In order to enhance national security, the Department of Homeland Security is developing a biometric based entry and exit system capable of improving the information resources available to immigration and border management decision-makers. These biometrics may include: Digital fingerprint scans, facial images, iris images or other biometrics. Biometrics may be collected from certain travelers entering or exiting the United States in order to verify identity, determine admissibility of those seeking entry into the United States, confirm exit from the United States for the purpose of tracking aliens who have overstayed their visa or are otherwise illegally present in the United States, prevent visa fraud, and identify known or suspected criminals or terrorists. CBP will only store biometric data from those aliens specified in 8 CFR 215.8 and 8 CFR 235.1. U.S. Citizens and aliens who are generally exempt from biometric collection but voluntarily participate in biometric collection will have their biometrics deleted from DHS systems. CBP continues to test and evaluate different technological and operational changes to improve the accuracy and speed of biometric collection.
