This guidance describes principles for designing, conducting, and reporting the results for investigations or studies, including data from foreign countries, in submissions to CVM to demonstrate substantial evidence of effectiveness for new animal drug applications or a reasonable expectation of effectiveness for applications for conditional approval of a new animal drug. It also describes how sponsors may obtain feedback from CVM regarding the incorporation of data from foreign countries into investigations and study protocols before the submission of an application. FDA is committed to supporting data that may be recognized globally in order to enhance animal drug development, facilitate the use of foreign data, and minimize the need to conduct duplicative studies.
