timely notice. Therefore, you should always check the Agency's Web site 
at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/default.htm and scroll down to 
the appropriate advisory committee meeting link, or call the advisory 
committee information line to learn about possible modifications before

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
