Tylosin tartrate soluble powder used for the control of American foulbrood (P. larvae) in honeybees is a new animal drug under section 201(v) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 321(v)). As a new animal drug, tylosin tartrate is subject to section 512 of the act (21 U.S.C. 360b) , requiring that its uses be the subject of an approved NADA or supplemental NADA. Honeybees are a minor species under § 514.1(d)(1)(ii) (21 CFR 514.1(d)(1)(ii)).

The NRSP-7 Project, western region, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, has provided target animal safety, effectiveness, human food safety, and environmental safety data for use of tylosin tartrate soluble powder for the control of American foulbrood in honeybees. These data, contained in PMF 5783, were reviewed by FDA and found satisfactory to support those aspects of an original or supplemental NADA.

Sponsors of NADAs or supplemental NADAs may, without further authorization, reference the PMF 5783 to support approval of an application filed under § 514.1(d). An NADA or supplemental NADA must include, in addition to reference to the PMF, animal drug labeling and other information needed for approval, such as: Data supporting extrapolation from a major species in which the drug is currently approved or authorized reference to such data; and data concerning manufacturing methods, facilities, and controls. Persons desiring more information concerning PMF 5783 or requirements for approval of an NADA or supplement may contact Joan C. Gotthardt (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT).
