FDA Hepatitis Update - FDA seeking new members with Hep Cexperience for its Antiviral Drugs Advisory Committee
 
 
  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to assist in its mission to protect and promote the public health, uses 49 committees and panels to obtain independent expert advice on scientific, technical, and policy matters.
 
FDA is seeking technically qualified medical/scientific consultants to serve as members of its Antiviral Drugs Advisory Committee for future panels to consider potential direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for the treatment of hepatitis C - specifically hepatologists or other medical doctors who treat a substantial number of hepatitis C patients. Consultants should have experience interpreting and analyzing detailed scientific data, and understand its public health significance.
 
Potential candidates will be required to provide detailed information concerning such matters as financial holdings, employment, and research grants and/or contracts to permit evaluation of possible sources of conflict of interest. Potential conflicts include, but may not be limited to: employment with a pharmaceutical sponsor, having financial interests or stock in pharmaceutical companies developing DAAs, participating as an investigator in pivotal studies of DAAs in development, being chair of a department in which colleagues are investigating a DAA, or receiving substantial amounts of reimbursement from DAA sponsors for consulting services or presentations.
 
Advisory Committee meetings are convened in the Washington DC metropolitan area, typically for two days twice a year. Committee members are appointed as Special Government Employees, and receive a salary for each meeting day as well as travel and per diem costs.
