SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Synerx Pharma, LLC, 100 N. State St., Newtown, PA 18940-2048, filed ANADA 200-472 that provides for veterinary prescription use of Fomepizole for Injection as an antidote for ethylene glycol (antifreeze) poisoning in dogs. Synerx Pharma, LLC's Fomepizole for Injection is approved as a generic copy of Paladin Laboratories' ANTIZOL-VET (fomepizole), approved under NADA 141-075. The ANADA is approved as of 2009, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1004 to reflect the approval.

In addition, Synerx Pharma, LLC, is not currently 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 sponsor.

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.

FDA has determined under 21 CFR 25.33 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.
