timely notice. Therefore, you should always check the Agency's Web site 
and call the appropriate advisory committee hot line/phone line to 
learn about possible modifications before coming to the meeting.
    Agenda: On October 25, 2011, the committee will meet in open 
session to hear and discuss CBER's review of scientific and medical 
literature concerning the use of non-standardized allergen extracts in 
the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease. FDA is announcing the 
availability of this report entitled ``CBER's Report of Scientific and 
Medical Literature and Information on Non-Standardized Allergen 
Extracts in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergic Disease'' elsewhere 
in this issue of the Federal Register.
    FDA intends to make background material available to the public no 
later than 2 business days before the meeting. If FDA is unable to post 
the background material on its Web site prior to the meeting, the 
background material will be made publicly available at the location of 
the advisory committee meeting, and the background material will be 
posted on FDA's Web site after the meeting. Background material is 
available at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/default.htm. Scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee link.
    Procedure: Interested persons may present data, information, or 
views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before the committee. 
Written submissions may be made to the contact person on or before 
October 18, 2011. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled 
between approximately 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Those individuals 
interested in making formal oral presentations should notify the 
contact person and submit a brief statement of the general nature of 
the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the names and addresses 
of proposed participants, and an indication of the approximate time 
requested to make their presentation on or before October 11, 2011. 
Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. If the number of 
registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be reasonably 
accommodated during the scheduled open public hearing session, FDA may 
conduct a lottery to determine the speakers for the scheduled open 
public hearing session. The contact person will notify interested 
persons regarding their request to speak by October 11, 2011.

that the Agency is not responsible for providing access to electrical
