Start Preamble


Food and Drug Administration, HHS.


Final rule; technical amendment.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval of an abbreviated new animal drug application (ANADA) filed by Veterinary Laboratories, Inc. The ANADA provides for the use of lincomycin injectable solution in swine for the treatment of infectious arthritis and mycoplasma pneumonia. Additional action is also being taken because we did not specify the concentration of lincomycin solution approved under the ANADA in the final rule that published in the Federal Register of May 14, 2002.


This rule is effective August 28, 2003.

Veterinary Laboratories, Inc., 12340 Santa Fe Dr., Lenexa, KS 66215, filed ANADA 200-315 that provides for use of Lincomycin (lincomycin hydrochloride monohydrate) Injection in swine for the treatment of infectious arthritis and mycoplasma pneumonia. Veterinary Laboratories, Inc.'s Lincomycin Injection is approved as a generic copy of Pharmacia & Upjohn Co.'s LINCOMIX Injectable, approved under NADA 034-025. The ANADA is approved as of April 2, 3003, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1260 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

Section 522.1260 is also being revised to specify the concentration of lincomycin solutioin approved under ANADA 200-274 (67 FR 34387, May 14, 2002).

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 21 CFR 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.
