Cancelled: Pulmonary-Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee

The committee will discuss new drug application (NDA) 208646, submitted by AllerQuest, LLC, for a skin-test kit (proposed trade name PRE-PEN Plus) that combines the approved product PRE-PEN (benzylpenicilloyl polylysine for injection) with penicillin G potassium, penicilloic acid, penilloic acid, and amoxicillin sodium, for the proposed indication to detect IgE sensitization to penicillin antigens and reliably rule out the potential for immediate life-threatening penicillin allergic reactions with a high degree of probability in patients with history of possible IgE-dependent penicillin allergy. The discussion will include study design considerations, the contribution of each of the components, and whether the submitted data provide substantial evidence of efficacy.

Update: On March 11, 2019, the FDA cancelled this meeting  “due to new information regarding the application.” The FDA added that they intend to continue evaluating the application and, as needed, will announce future meeting dates in the Federal Register.
