SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Pharmacokinetic-Based Criteria for Supporting Alternative Dosing Regimens of Programmed Cell Death VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Aug 25, 2021 Jkt 253001 Receptor-1 (PD–1) or Programmed Cell Death-Ligand 1 (PD–L1) Blocking Antibodies for Treatment of Patients with Cancer.’’ This draft guidance provides recommendations for sponsors of INDs and BLAs on the use of PKbased criteria to support the approval of alternative dosing regimens for PD–1 or PD–L1 blocking antibodies. The draft guidance is based on accumulated scientific and regulatory experience for PD–1 and PD–L1 drugs and, as such, does not address development of alternative dosing regimens for any other drugs or biologics, changes in route of administration, or novel formulations of previously approved PD–1/PD–L1 products. Sponsors may seek approval of alternative intravenous (IV) dosing regimens that are different from those tested in clinical efficacy and safety trials. These alternative IV dosing regimens are typically designed to change doses (e.g., body weight adjusted doses to flat doses) and/or dosing intervals (e.g., once every 3 weeks to once every 6 weeks). Longer dosing interval periods can minimize patient burden and reduce risks associated with more frequent administration (e.g., infusion reactions), as well as exposure to communicable diseases (e.g., SARS– CoV–2) associated with visits to hospitals or infusion centers. The draft guidance describes the criteria for using the PK-based approach and the documents that should be included in the submissions seeking approval. This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on ‘‘Pharmacokinetic-Based Criteria for Supporting Alternative Dosing Regimens of Programmed Cell Death Receptor-1 (PD–1) or Programmed Cell Death-Ligand 1 (PD–L1) Blocking Antibodies for Treatment of Patients with Cancer.’’ It does not establish any rights for any person and is not binding on FDA or the public. You can use an alternative approach if it satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. II. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 While this guidance contains no collection of information, it does refer to previously approved FDA collections of information. Therefore, clearance by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3521) is not required for this guidance. The previously approved collections of information are subject to review by OMB under the PRA. The collections of PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information in 21 CFR part 312 have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0014 and the collections of information in 21 CFR part 601 have been approved under 0910–0338.
