Dear Dr. Burnett:
We have reviewed your submission dated May 1, 2012 to your biologics license application (BLA) for HPC, Cord Blood requesting a proprietary name review.
In consultation with CBER’s Advertising and Promotional Labeling Branch (APLB) we conclude that under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and applicable regulations, your proposed proprietary name, DuCord, is acceptable at this time.
We will perform another proprietary name review of DuCord closer to the time of the action due date to ensure that we have not approved a conflicting proprietary name for another product in the interim.
If you have any questions, please contact the Regulatory Project Manager, Mark L. Davidson, at (301) 827-6536.
