Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 83 / Wednesday, April 30, 2014 / Notices August 7, 2012, FDA advised the Patent and Trademark Office that this human drug product had undergone a regulatory review period and that the approval of BRILINTA 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 BRILINTA is 2,976 days. Of this time, 2,364 days occurred during the testing phase of the regulatory review period, while 612 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 FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 355(i)) became effective: May 29, 2003. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the date the investigational new drug application became effective was on May 29, 2003. 2. The date the application was initially submitted with respect to the human drug product under section 505(b) of the FD&C Act: November 16, 2009. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the new drug application (NDA) for BRILINTA (NDA 22–433) was submitted on November 16, 2009. 3. The date the application was approved: July 20, 2011. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that NDA 22–433 was approved on July 20, 2011. This determination of the regulatory review period establishes the maximum potential length of a patent extension. However, the Patent and Trademark Office applies several statutory limitations in its calculations of the actual period for patent extension. In its applications for patent extension, this applicant seeks 1,014 days, 1,032 days, or 1,794 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) either electronic or written comments and ask for a redetermination by June 30, 2014. 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 October 27, 2014. 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. Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) electronic or written comments and written or electronic VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:41 Apr 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 petitions. It is only necessary to send one set of comments. Identify comments with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. If you submit a written petition, two copies are required. A petition submitted electronically must be submitted to http:// www.regulations.gov, Docket No. FDA– 2013–S–0610.

Background The Cobell Settlement was approved with finality on November 24, 2012, following the exhaustion of appeals through the U.S. Supreme Court. Within a month following final approval, the Department of the Interior established the Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations (Buy-Back Program) and published an Initial Implementation PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24445 Plan. The Department engaged in government-to-government consultation on this plan and released an Updated Implementation Plan in November 2013. The Department is currently implementing the Buy-Back Program at multiple locations across Indian Country. Since November 24, 2012, the Department has sent offers to nearly 19,000 landowners. Thus far, Interior has paid over $40 million to Indian landowners across the United States for voluntarily restoring the equivalent of more than 122,000 acres of land to tribal governments. Tribal governments are helping plan for and implement the Buy-Back Program at specific locations through cooperative agreements or other arrangements. The purpose of this session is to gather input from tribes in order for the Department to continue to refine its land consolidation processes. Landowners may also attend the session to provide input. II. Additional Resources The Updated Implementation Plan and additional information about the Buy-Back Program is available at: http://www.doi.gov/buybackprogram.
