Part 177). A teleconference was held with counsel for GSK on June 8, 2018. This final determination concerns the country of origin of Malarone tablets. As a U.S. importer, GSK is a party-atinterest within the meaning of 19 C.F.R. § 177.22(d)(1) and is entitled to request this final determination. FACTS: GSK is a global healthcare company that researches, develops, and manufactures pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines, and consumer healthcare products. At issue in this case are tablets sold under the brand name Malarone, which are indicated for the prevention and treatment of acute, uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria. GSK states that Malarone tablets have been shown to be effective in regions where other malaria drugs such as chloroquine, halofantrine, mefloquine, and amodiaquine may have unacceptable failure rates, presumably due to drug resistance. According to the FDA prescribing information, Malarone is a fixed-dose combination of atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. See Prescribing Information, https:// www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/05/ briefing/2005-4089b1_05_05_ atovaquone.pdf (last visited Dec. 11, 2017). The chemical name of atovaquone 11 is trans-2-[4-(4 chlorophenyl)cyclohexyl]-3-hydroxy1,4-naphthalenedione and the molecular formula for atovaquone is C22H19ClO3. The chemical name of proguanil hydrochloride is 1-(4-chlorophenyl)-5isopropyl-biguanide hydrochloride and the chemical formula for proguanil hydrochloride is C11H16ClN5•HCl. Each Malarone Tablet contains 250 milligrams of atovaquone and 100 milligrams of proguanil hydrochloride. The FDA prescribing information also describes the microbiology or ‘‘mechanism of action’’ of atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride. It states that atovaquone and proguanil hydrochloride ‘‘interfere with 2 different pathways involved in the biosynthesis of pyrimidines required for nucleic acid replication. Atovaquone is a selective inhibitor of parasite mitochondrial electron transport. Proguanil hydrochloride primarily exerts its effect by means of the metabolite cycloguanil, a dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor.
