SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Orphan Medical, Inc., 13911 Ridgedale Dr., suite 475, Minnetonka, MN 55305, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 141-075 for ANTIZOL-VET (fomepizole) to Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 3180 Porter Dr., Palo Alto, CA 94304. A supplement was also filed to NADA 141-075 to remove a vial of saline diluent from this product. The supplemental NADA is approved as of April 18, 2006, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1004 to reflect the change of sponsorship, the removal of a vial of saline diluent from the product, and a current format.

Approval of this supplemental NADA did not require review of additional safety or effectiveness data or information. Therefore, a freedom of information summary is not required.

Following these changes of sponsorship, Orphan Medical, Inc., is no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for Orphan Medical, Inc.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(d)(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.
