SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

Intervet, Inc., 56 Livingston Ave., Roseland, NJ 07068, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, approved NADA 141-070 for RAPINOVET (propofol), an injectable anesthetic, to Teva Animal Health, Inc., 3915 South 48th Street Ter., St. Joseph, MO 64503. Accordingly, the agency is amending the regulations in 21 CFR 522.2005 to reflect the transfer of ownership and a current format.

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.

Therefore, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and under authority delegated to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs and redelegated to the Center for Veterinary Medicine, 21 CFR part 522 is amended as follows:

PART 522—IMPLANTATION OR INJECTABLE DOSAGE FORM NEW ANIMAL DRUGS Back to Top

1.The authority citation for 21 CFR part 522 continues to read as follows:

Authority:

21 U.S.C. 360b.

2.Revise § 522.2005 to read as follows:

§ 522.2005 Propofol.

(a) Specifications. Each milliliter of emulsion contains 10 milligrams (mg) propofol.

(b) Sponsors. See sponsor numbers in § 510.600(c) of this chapter.

(1) No. 059130 for use as in paragraph (c) of this section.

(2) No. 000074 for use as in paragraphs (c)(1)(i), (c)(2), and (c)(3) of this section.

(c) Conditions of use in dogs and cats—(1) Amount. The drug is administered by intravenous injection as follows:

(i) Dogs. For induction of general anesthesia without the use of preanesthetics the dosage is 5.5 to 7.0 mg per kilogram (mg/kg) (2.5 to 3.2 mg/pound (lb)); for the maintenance of general anesthesia without the use of preanesthetics the dosage is 1.1 to 3.3 mg/kg (0.5 to 1.5 mg/lb). The use of preanesthetic medication reduces propofol dose requirements.

For the maintenance of general anesthesia without the use of preanesthetics the dosage is 1.1 to 4.4 mg/kg (0.5 to 2.0 mg/lb). The use of preanesthetic medication reduces propofol dose requirements.

(2) Indications for use. As a single injection to provide general anesthesia for short procedures; for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia using incremental doses to effect; for induction of general anesthesia where maintenance is provided by inhalant anesthetics.

(3) Limitations. Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
