SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed a supplement to NADA 141-064 that provides for the use of PULMOTIL 90 (tilmicosin phosphate) Type A medicated article in swine feed for the control of swine respiratory disease associated with certain bacterial organisms. The supplemental NADA provides for revised reproductive safety labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of November 24, 2004, and 21 CFR 558.618 is amended to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 21 CFR 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of this application may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Under section 512(c)(2)(F)(iii) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b(c)(2)(F)(iii)), this supplemental approval qualifies for 3 years of marketing exclusivity beginning November 24, 2004.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(1) that this action is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.

This rule does not meet the definition of “rule” in 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(A) because it is a rule of “particular applicability.” Therefore, it is not subject to the congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
