Altana, Inc., 60 Baylis Rd., Melville, NY 11747, filed ANADA 200-330 that provides for use of ANIMAX (nystatin, neomycin, thiostrepton, and triamcinolone acetonide) Cream Veterinary, a vanishing cream based ointment, for topical dermatologic use in dogs and cats. Altana, Inc.'s ANIMAX Cream Veterinary is approved as a generic copy of Fort Dodge Animal Health's PANOLOG Cream, approved under NADA 96-676. The ANADA is approved as of September 4, 2003, and the regulations in 21 CFR 524.1600a 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 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 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.

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.
