SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

First Priority, Inc., 1585 Todd Farm Dr., Elgin, IL 60123, filed ANADA 200-425 for use of Nitrofurazone Soluble Dressing in horses for prevention or treatment of superficial bacterial infections of wounds, burns, and cutaneous ulcers. First Priority, Inc.'s Nitrofurazone Soluble Dressing is approved as a generic copy of FURA-ZONE (nitrofurazone) ointment, sponsored by Squire Laboratories, Inc., under NADA 132-427. In addition, First Priority, Inc., has informed FDA of a change of address. The ANADA is approved as of July 13, 2009, and §§ 510.600 and 524.1580b (21 CFR 510.600 and 524.1580b) are amended to reflect the approval.

In addition, FDA has found that the pioneer sponsor's drug labeler code (DLC) was inadvertently omitted from § 524.1580b during format changes in 2005 (70 FR 50181; August 26, 2005). At this time, § 524.1580b is amended to include Squire Laboratories, Inc.'s DLC. Section 524.1580b is also amended to reflect current food safety warnings.

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.

FDA 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.
