Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public hearing to obtain input on adding additional diseases to the list of tropical diseases recognized under the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act (FDAAA), which adds a new section to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act). The new section authorizes FDA to award priority review vouchers to sponsors of certain tropical disease product applications that meet the criteria specified by the act. The new section lists diseases considered to be ``tropical diseases'' for the purposes of this legislation, and provides for expansion of the list to include diseases meeting certain criteria. This public meeting is being held to obtain comments from the public on the criteria that should be used to determine whether an infectious disease should be added to the list, and to elicit suggestions for adding specific diseases.
