Ivy Laboratories, Inc., 8857 Bond St., Overland Park, KS 66214, filed supplemental ANADA 200-221 for COMPONENT® TE-G (trenbolone acetate/estradiol) with Tylan®, a subcutaneous ear implant containing 40 of milligrams (mg) trenbolone acetate and 8 mg of estradiol, in 2 pellets, each pellet containing 20 mg of trenbolone acetate and 4 mg of estradiol, and an additional pellet containing 29 mg of tylosin tartrate as a local antibacterial. The implants are used in pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker, and feeder steers and heifers) for increased rate of weight gain. The supplemental application is approved as of September 18, 2000, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.2477 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.
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 approval for food-producing animals qualifies for 3 years of marketing exclusivity beginning September 18, 2000, because the application contains substantial evidence of the effectiveness of the drug involved, any studies of animal safety or, in the case of food-producing animals, human food safety studies (other than bioequivalence or residue studies) required for the approval and conducted or sponsored by the applicant. The 3 years of marketing exclusivity applies only to the addition of tylosin tartrate to the implant for which the supplemental application was approved.
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
