CAPA REPORT (Sue Chesley)
The CAPA Report was reviewed, and as there were no recommendations no membership vote was required.
Chesley noted the number of requests for acceleration, and the membership agreed it bears watching, but at this point there is not enough information to identify a trend. Members discussed two other comments solicited from the CAPA interviews. One involved concern that requests for additional information slowed down the process. The membership agreed that while additional requests do slow down the process, ultimately the content of the packet is more important to the review process than strict adherence to the review calendar. A second comment related to the value of the inclusion of cumulative information in the bio-bib supplement. The membership felt that cumulative information is included for the convenience of the candidate and that CAPA is able to evaluate the correct review period, regardless of additional information. The membership determined that no change in PAPA/LS was required to address this comment.
