Med-Pharmex, Inc., 2727 Thompson Creek Rd., Pomona, CA 91767-1861, filed ANADA 200-292 for IVERSOL (ivermectin) Liquid for Horses. The application provides for oral use of 1.0 percent ivermectin solution in horses for the treatment and control of various species of gastrointestinal nematodes, lungworms, stomach bots, and cutaneous larvae and microfilariae. MedPharmex's IVERSOL Liquid for Horses is approved as a generic copy of Merial Ltd.’s EQVALAN® (ivermectin) Oral Liquid for Horses, approved under NADA 140-439. ANADA 200-292 is approved as of December 7, 2000, and 21 CFR 520.1195 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 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
