follow the prompts to the desired center or product area. Please call 
the Information Line for up-to-date information on this meeting. A 
notice in the Federal Register about last minute modifications that 
impact a previously announced advisory committee meeting cannot always 
be published quickly enough to provide 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: The committee will discuss new drug application (NDA) 203-
100, for a fixed-dose combination tablet of elvitegravir/cobicistat/
emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, submitted by Gilead 
Sciences, Inc. The application proposes an indication for the treatment 
of HIV-1 infection in adults who are antiretroviral na[iuml]ve or have 
no known substitutions associated with resistance to the individual 
components.
    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 
April 27, 2012. Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled 
between approximately 1 p.m. and 2 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 April 19, 2012. Time allotted for 
each presentation may be limited. If the number of registrants 
requesting to

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 April 20, 2012.
    Persons attending FDA's advisory committee meetings are advised 
that the Agency is not responsible for providing access to electrical
