FDA Holding Workshop on Minor Use and Minor Species Drugs
June 22, 2004
FDA is holding a public workshop entitled “International Workshop on Minor Use and Minor Species (MUMS): A Global Perspective.” The meeting will be held on October 7, 2004 , from 8:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. and on October 8, 2004 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The workshop will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel, Plaza Room III, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville , MD 20852 .
The workshop is a result of a partnership between FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) minor use animal drug program, the National Research Support Project #7 (NRSP-7). The purpose of the workshop is to assemble international expertise to discuss the global pursuit of drug approvals for MUMS. Areas to be discussed include data requirements for MUMS drug approvals, the classification of minor species, and husbandry practices in various regions of the world. We anticipate that the workshop will include methods and strategies to improve cooperation and coordination of national and regional programs to maximize MUMS approvals internationally.
