Key Regulatory Milestones

09/10/2020 - FDA approval date

Advisory Committee

It was determined that presentation of data in the sBLA for Boostrix to the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) was not required because of CBER’s experience with Boostrix. Furthermore, because our review of information submitted in the supplement, including the clinical study design and trial results, did not raise concerns or controversial issues which would have benefited from an advisory committee discussion, it was agreed that review of this sBLA by the VRBPAC was not necessary.
