This demonstration is intended to strengthen the Medicare program by offering innovative models to beneficiaries that improve quality and access and lower costs. As a result, Medicare beneficiaries will directly benefit from these innovative models. The demonstration represents the first pay for performance project for physician group practices and will enable comparisons across groups and geography; Form Number: CMS–10134 (OMB #0938–0942); Frequency: Annually; Affected Public: Business or other for-profit and Not-forprofit institutions; Number of Respondents: 10; Total Annual Responses: 10; Total Annual Hours: 790. 6.

ACTION: Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David J. Cummings, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (HFD–357), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857, 301–443–5187. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is announcing the withdrawal of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Conjugated Estrogens, USP–LC–MS Method for Both Qualitative Chemical Characterization and Documentation of Qualitative Pharmaceutical Equivalence.’’ The agency announced the availability of the guidance in the Federal Register of March 9, 2000 (65 FR 12556). The draft guidance was originally intended to provide recommendations to applicants on how to use the liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC–MS) method to address both qualitative chemical characterization and qualitative pharmaceutical equivalence for natural source conjugated estrogens. FDA is withdrawing the guidance because advances in technology allow for the possibility of using different methodologies. FDA does not want to inhibit companies from using a methodology that might provide additional scientific data to support characterization and pharmaceutical equivalence for conjugated estrogens in the future. If submitted, these data would be evaluated to determine applicability of the method before an application could be approved. Dated: August 5, 2005. Jeffrey Shuren, Assistant Commissioner for Policy.

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the withdrawal of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Conjugated Estrogens, USP–LC–MS Method for Both Qualitative Chemical Characterization and Documentation of Qualitative Pharmaceutical Equivalence.’’ FDA is withdrawing the draft guidance because the published methodology limits the submission of scientifically valid information to the agency that may be based on different methodologies. FDA does not want to dictate the scientific approach for developing adequate methods.
