    General Directions

    Mix fresh solutions daily. Use as sole source of oxytetracycline. Do not mix this product directly with milk or milk replacers. Administer one hour before or two hours after feeding milk or milk replacers. The concentration of drug required in medicated water must be adequate to compensate for variation in the age of the animal, feed consumption rate, and the environmental temperature and humidity, each of which affects water consumption. Administer up to 14 days in swine, cattle, and sheep, and 7 to 14 days for chickens and turkeys.

  9. Pioneer Product "Listed" Product: Terramycin® Soluble Powder, NADA 008-622
  10. Date of Approval: December 7, 1995

 

II. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY AND DRUG EFFECTIVENESS:

Under the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Term Restoration Act, (53 FR 50460, December 15, 1988, First GADPTRA Policy Letter) an abbreviated new animal drug application (ANADA) may be submitted for a generic version of an approved new animal drug (pioneer product). New target animal safety data, drug effectiveness data, and human food safety data (other than tissue residue data) are not required for approval of an ANADA. An ANADA relies on the target animal safety, drug effectiveness, and human food safety data in the pioneer's new animal drug application. Ordinarily the ANADA sponsor shows that the generic product is bioequivalent to the pioneer. A tissue residue study to establish the withdrawal time for the generic product is also required. For certain dosage forms, the agency will grant a waiver from conducting an in vivo bioequivalence study (55 FR 24645, June 18, 1990; Fifth GADPTRA Policy Letter, Bioequivalence Guideline, April 1990.)

Based upon the formulation characteristics of the generic product, Phoenix Scientific, Inc. was granted a waiver from conducting an in vivo bioequivalence study for OXYTETRACYCLINE HCL SOLUBLE POWDER. The generic and pioneer products are water soluble powders with the same active ingredients and no differences in the inactive ingredients which would affect absorption of the active ingredients.

 

III. HUMAN FOOD SAFETY

Tolerance
The tolerances established for the pioneer product apply to the generic product. Tolerances of 3 ppm in uncooked kidney and 1 ppm in uncooked muscle, liver, fat, and skin are established for residues of oxytetracycline in chickens and turkeys under 21 CFR 556.500(a). A tolerance of 0.1 ppm in uncooked edible tissues is established for residues of oxytetracycline in swine [21 CFR 556.500(b)], cattle, beef calves, nonlactating dairy cattle [21 CFR 556.500(c)], and sheep [21 CFR 556.500(e)].

Withdrawal Time
When a waiver from the requirement of an in vivo bioequivalence study is granted, the withdrawal times are those previously assigned to the pioneer product.

For oxytetracycline hydrochloride, [21 CFR 520.1660d], do not administer to turkeys, swine, cattle, or sheep within 5 days of slaughter. Do not administer to chickens or turkeys producing eggs for human consumption.

Regulatory Method
The analytical method for the determination of oxytetracycline hydrochloride in tissues uses a microbiological assay procedure. This method is found in the Antibiotic Residues in Milk, Dairy Products, and Animal Tissues: Methods, Reports, and Protocols , revised October 1968, reprinted December 1974, National Center for Antibiotic and Insulin Analysis, FDA, Washington, D.C. 20204.

 

IV. AGENCY CONCLUSIONS

This ANADA submitted under section 512(b) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act satisfies the requirements of section 512(n) of the act and demonstrates that Oxytetracycline HCl Soluble Powder, when used under its proposed conditions of use, is safe and effective for the labeled indications.
