SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Modern Veterinary Therapeutics, LLC, 18301 SW. 86th Ave., Miami, FL 33157, filed ANADA 200-435 that provides for use of RESPIRAM (doxapram hydrochloride), an injectable solution, in dogs, cats, and horses to stimulate respiration during and after general anesthesia. Modern Veterinary Therapeutics, LLC's RESPIRAM is approved as a generic copy of DOPRAM-V Injectable, sponsored by Fort Dodge Animal Health, Division of Wyeth, under NADA 034 879. The ANADA is approved as of November 21, 2006, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.775 to reflect the approval and a current format. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

In addition, Modern Veterinary Therapeutics, LLC, has not been previously listed in the animal drug regulations as a sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to add entries for this firm.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 21 CFR 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a Start Printed Page 261summary 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.
