Please call the Information Line for up-to-date information on this

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 January 27 and 28, 2011, the committee will discuss and 
make recommendations regarding the possible reclassification of devices

    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.

statement of the general nature of the evidence or arguments they wish

indication of the approximate time requested to make their presentation 
on or before January 6, 2011. Time allotted for each presentation may

notify interested persons regarding their request to speak by January 
7, 2011.
