SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with section 512(i) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b(i)) and 21 CFR 514.105(a) and 514.106(a), FDA is providing notice that in 2001 it approved a supplemental ANADA that was not the subject of a final rule. A final rule was not published because § 524.1193 (21 CFR 524.1193) did not require amendment.

On May 16, 2001, FDA approved a supplement filed by Phoenix Scientific, Inc., 3915 South 48th St. Terrace, St. Joseph, MO 64503, to ANADA 200-219 for PHOENECTIN (ivermectin) Pour-On. The supplemental ANADA provided for topical use of a 0.5 percent ivermectin solution on cattle for control of infections of Ostertagia ostertagi, Start Printed Page 41386 Haemonchus placei, Trichostrongylus axei, Oesophagostomum radiatum, Cooperia punctata, and C. oncophora for 14 days after treatment. This supplemental approval was based on the expiration of marketing exclusivity granted the pioneer product, Merial, Ltd.'s IVOMEC Pour-On for Cattle, in 1997 (62 FR 38907, July 21, 1997). No new data were submitted. The necessary amendment to § 524.1193 was made in a final rule (66 FR 13236, March 5, 2001) for the approval of another generic copy of the pioneer product.

A freedom of information summary containing approved product labeling 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.
