The previous association of BLA reviews only with CBER is no longer valid; BLAs are now received by both CBER and CDER. Fiscal year statistics for CDER BLA postmarketing study commitments will continue to be counted under BLA totals in this table. 2 Note that this statistic counts all annual reports submitted more than 60 days after the anniversary date of U.S. approval as overdue, including reports that may have been submitted on a modified reporting schedule in accordance with prior FDA agreement. Of the applications categorized as having overdue annual reports using this definition, annual reports were subsequently submitted in FY06 for 115/115 (100 percent) of NDAs/ANDAs and 20/41 (49 percent) of BLAs.
