No opinions expressed were written by this civilian editor. Note - FDA is a patriotic institution. FDA announces comprehensive regulatory plan to shift trajectory of tobacco-related disease, death The U.
Food and Drug Administration today announced a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation that will serve as a multi-year roadmap to better protect kids and significantly reduce tobacco-related disease and death.
The goal is to ensure that the FDA has the proper scientific and regulatory foundation to efficiently and effectively implement the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. The agency will also seek input on critical public health issues such as the role of flavors in tobacco products.
Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States, causing more thandeaths every single year. The agency intends to issue an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking ANPRM to seek input on the potential public health benefits and any possible adverse effects of lowering nicotine in cigarettes.
Because almost 90 percent of adult smokers started smoking before the age of 18 and nearly 2, youth smoke their first cigarette every day in the U. To be successful all of these steps must be done in concert and not in isolation. To make this effort successful, the agency intends to extend timelines to submit tobacco product review applications for newly regulated tobacco products that were on the market as of Aug.
This action will afford the agency time to explore clear and meaningful measures to make tobacco products less toxic, appealing and addictive. It also will provide manufacturers additional time to develop higher quality, more complete applications informed by additional guidance from the agency.
The agency plans to issue this guidance describing a new enforcement policy shortly.
Under expected revised timelines, applications for newly-regulated combustible products, such as cigars, pipe tobacco and hookah tobacco, would be submitted by Aug. Additionally, the FDA expects that manufacturers would continue to market products while the agency reviews product applications.
Importantly, the anticipated new enforcement policy will not affect any current requirements for cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, only the newly-regulated tobacco products such as cigars and e-cigarettes. This approach also will not apply to provisions of the final rule for which compliance deadlines already have passed, such as mandatory age and photo-ID checks to prevent illegal sales to minors.
It also will not affect future deadlines for other provisions of the rule, including, but not limited to, required warning statements, ingredient listing, health document submissions, harmful and potentially harmful constituent reports, and the removal of modified risk claims, i.
In order to further explore how best to protect public health in the evolving tobacco marketplace, the agency also will seek input from the public on a variety of significant topics, including approaches to regulating kid-appealing flavors in e-cigarettes and cigars.
Additionally, the agency plans to examine actions to increase access and use of FDA-approved medicinal nicotine products, and work with sponsors to consider what steps can be taken under the safety and efficacy standard for products intended to help smokers quit.
The agency also will continue efforts to assist industry in complying with federal tobacco regulations through online information, meetings, webinars and guidance documents.

FDA approves first treatment for certain types of poor-prognosis acute myeloid leukemia The U. Food and Drug Administration today approved Vyxeos for the treatment of adults with two types of acute myeloid leukemia AML: Vyxeos is a fixed-combination of chemotherapy drugs daunorubicin and cytarabine.
The National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health estimates that approximately 21, people will be diagnosed with AML this year; approximately 10, patients with AML will die of the disease in T-AML occurs as a complication of chemotherapy or radiation in approximately 8 to10 percent of all patients treated for cancer within an average of five years after treatment.
AML-MRC is characterized by a history of certain blood disorders and other significant mutations within cancer cells. The safety and efficacy of Vyxeos were studied in patients with newly diagnosed t-AML or AML-MRC who were randomized to receive Vyxeos or separately administered treatments of daunorubicin and cytarabine.
The trial measured how long patients lived from the date they started the trial overall survival. Patients who received Vyxeos lived longer than patients who received separate treatments of daunorubicin and cytarabine median overall survival 9.
Common side effects of Vyxeos include bleeding events hemorrhagefever with low white blood cell count febrile neutropeniarash, swelling of the tissues edemanausea, inflammation of the mucous membranes mucositisdiarrhea, constipation, musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, abdominal pain, shortness of breath dyspneaheadache, cough, decreased appetite, abnormal heart rhythm arrhythmialung infection pneumoniablood infection bacteremiachills, sleep disorders and vomiting.
Patients who have a history of serious hypersensitivity to daunorubicin, cytarabine or any component of the formulation should not use Vyxeos. Patients taking Vyxeos should be monitored for hypersensitivity reactions and decreased cardiac function. Vyxeos has been associated with serious or fatal bleeding events.
Daunorubicin has been associated with severe damage necrosis where the drug leaks into the skin and subcutaneous tissue from the intravenous infusion extravasation. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take Vyxeos, because it may cause harm to a developing fetus or a newborn baby.
Vyxeos also received Orphan Drug designation, which provides incentives to assist and encourage the development of drugs for rare diseases.
