Med-Pharmex, Inc., 2727 Thompson Creek Rd., Pomona, CA 91767-1861, filed ANADA 200-289 that provides for the oral use of neomycin sulfate solution for the treatment and control of colibacillosis in cattle, swine, sheep, and goats. Med-Pharmex's ANADA 200-289 NEORAL® (neomycin sulfate) Oral Solution is approved as a generic copy of Pharmacia & Upjohn's NADA 011-315 NEOMIX® 325 Soluble Powder. The application is approved as of July 3, 2000, and the regulations in 21 CFR 520.1485 are 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 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 Dockets Management Branch (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.
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.Start List of Subjects
