Anika Therapeutics, Inc., 236 W. Cummings Park, Woburn, MA 01801, filed a supplement to NADA 122-578 that provides for the veterinary prescription use of HYVISC (hyaluronate sodium) Sterile Injection in horses. The supplemental NADA provides for a revised human food safety warning on product labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of December 11, 2009, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1145 to reflect the approval.
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.
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.Start List of Subjects
