SUMMARY:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a notice of opportunity for hearing that published in the Federal Register on August 8, 2003 (68 FR 47332). FDA is correcting a product name used by the current sponsor of NADA 141-137, the FR citation for a Drug Efficacy Study Implementation Program finding of effectiveness, and the column headings of six tables. These corrections are being made to improve the accuracy of the Federal Register. This notice also extends the deadline for parties who have requested a hearing to submit data and analysis upon which their request for a hearing relies. Other interested persons may submit comments on the notice of opportunity for hearing (NOOH) before the deadline.

Submit all written data and analysis upon which a request for a hearing relies and other written comments by November 6, 2003.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In the Federal Register of August 8, 2003 (68 FR 47332), FDA announced the effective conditions of use for some of the drug products and use combinations subject to the listings in §§ 510.515 and/or 558.15 (21 CFR 510.515 and/or 558.15), and proposed to withdraw the new animal drug applications (NADAs) for those products or use combinations lacking substantial evidence of effectiveness following a 90-day opportunity to supplement the NADAs with labeling conforming to the relevant findings of effectiveness. The Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) also provided an opportunity for hearing for applications proposed to be withdrawn. Interested persons were given until September 8, 2003, to submit written appearances and requests for a hearing; until October 7, 2003, to submit data and analysis upon which a request for a hearing relies; and until November 6, 2003, to submit supplemental NADAs. After publication of the NOOH, several errors were found by CVM and others. CVM is correcting these errors, but does not believe that these corrections alter the underlying basis of the NOOH.
