On December 9, 2009, FDA issued a final current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulation for the production of positron emission tomography (PET) drugs.2 Under the requirements of section 121 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act (FDAMA), within two years following this publication date, an NDA or ANDA must be submitted for any PET drug marketed for clinical use in the United States. This guidance is intended to assist applicants in preparing new drug applications (NDAs) or abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) for fludeoxyglucose F 18 injection, ammonia N 13 injection, and sodium fluoride F 18 injection used in PET imaging for the indications cited in Section III (below). FDA approval of an NDA or ANDA will make it possible to market these PET drugs for clinical use according to the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act).3
