Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 45226 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 168 / Tuesday, September 1, 2009 / Notices permission to market the drug product. Although only a portion of a regulatory review period may count toward the actual amount of extension that the Director of Patents and Trademarks may award (for example, half the testing phase must be subtracted as well as any time that may have occurred before the patent was issued), FDA’s determination of the length of a regulatory review period for a human drug product will include all of the testing phase and approval phase as specified in 35 U.S.C. 156(g)(1)(B). FDA recently approved for marketing the human drug product TAPENTADOL HYDROCHLORIDE (tapentadol hydrochloride). TAPENTADOL HYDROCHLORIDE is indicated for the relief of moderate to severe acute pain in patients 18 years of age or older. Subsequent to this approval, the Patent and Trademark Office received a patent term restoration application for TAPENTADOL HYDROCHLORIDE (U.S. Patent No. RE 39,593) from Grunenthal GmbH, and the Patent and Trademark Office requested FDA’s assistance in determining this patent’s eligibility for patent term restoration. In a letter dated February 26, 2009, FDA advised the Patent and Trademark Office that this human drug product had undergone a regulatory review period and that the approval of TAPENTADOL HYDROCHLORIDE represented the first permitted commercial marketing or use of the product. Thereafter, the Patent and Trademark Office requested that FDA determine the product’s regulatory review period. FDA has determined that the applicable regulatory review period for TAPENTADOL HYDROCHLORIDE is 2,880 days. Of this time, 2,577 days occurred during the testing phase of the regulatory review period, while 303 days occurred during the approval phase. These periods of time were derived from the following dates: 1. The date an exemption under section 505(i) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 355(i)) became effective: January 3, 2001. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the date the investigational new drug application became effective was on January 3, 2001. 2. The date the application was initially submitted with respect to the human drug product under section 505(b) of the act: January 23, 2008. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the new drug application (NDA) 22–304 was submitted on January 23, 2008, as the date the NDA for TAPENTADOL HYDROCHLORIDE (NDA 22–304) was initially submitted. VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:18 Aug 31, 2009 Jkt 217001 3. The date the application was approved: November 20, 2008. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that NDA 22–304 was approved on November 20, 2008. This determination of the regulatory review period establishes the maximum potential length of a patent extension. However, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office applies several statutory limitations in its calculations of the actual period for patent extension. In its application for patent extension, this applicant seeks 1,492 days of patent term extension. Anyone with knowledge that any of the dates as published are incorrect may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments and ask for a redetermination by November 2, 2009. Furthermore, any interested person may petition FDA for a determination regarding whether the applicant for extension acted with due diligence during the regulatory review period by March 1, 2010. To meet its burden, the petition must contain sufficient facts to merit an FDA investigation. (See H. Rept. 857, part 1, 98th Cong., 2d sess., pp. 41–42, 1984.) Petitions should be in the format specified in 21 CFR 10.30. Comments and petitions should be submitted to the Division of Dockets Management. Three copies of any mailed information are to be submitted, except that individuals may submit one copy. Comments are to be identified with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. Comments and petitions may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Dated: June 8, 2009. Jane A.
