Drug sponsors request FDA to withdraw drug application approval
Many products affected by Guidance for Industry #213
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced that five drug sponsors holding animal drug applications affected by Guidance For Industry (GFI) #213 have requested that FDA withdraw approval of a collective 19 animal drug applications because the products are no longer manufactured or marketed. Of these 19 applications, 16 are antimicrobials affected by GFI #213.
The guidance outlines FDA's plan to help curb antimicrobial resistance by, among other things, phasing out the use of medically important antimicrobials in food-producing animals for production purposes.
