Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 67948 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 239 / Thursday, December 12, 2019 / Notices I. Background The Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 (Pub. L. 98–417) and the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Term Restoration Act (Pub. L. 100–670) generally provide that, if a patent is eligible for extension under these acts, the patent may be extended for a period of up to 5 years so long as the patented item (human drug product, animal drug product, medical device, food additive, or color additive) was subject to regulatory review by FDA before the item was marketed. Under these acts, a product’s regulatory review period forms the basis for determining the amount of extension an applicant may receive. A regulatory review period consists of two periods of time: A testing phase and an approval phase. For human drug products, the testing phase begins when the exemption to permit the clinical investigations of the drug becomes effective and runs until the approval phase begins. The approval phase starts with the initial submission of an application to market the human drug product and continues until the drug product ‘‘was approved’’ within the meaning of 35 U.S.C. 156. In the case of a drug recommended for controls under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), for purposes of patent term extension the date of approval is the later of the date the application to market the drug is approved or the date of issuance of the interim final rule controlling the drug. (See 35 U.S.C. 156(i)). Although only a portion of a regulatory review period may count toward the actual amount of extension that the Director of USPTO 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 has approved for marketing the human drug product BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS (brivaracetam) under new drug application (NDA) 205836. BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS is indicated for adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial-onset seizures in patients 16 years of age and older with epilepsy. Subsequent to this approval, the USPTO received a patent term restoration application for BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS (U.S. Patent No. 6,911,461) from UCB Biopharma SPRL and the USPTO requested FDA’s assistance in determining the patent’s eligibility for patent term restoration. In a letter dated VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Dec 11, 2019 Jkt 250001 January 18, 2017, FDA advised the USPTO that this human drug product had undergone a regulatory review period and that the approval of BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS represented the first permitted commercial marketing or use of the product. Thereafter, the USPTO requested that FDA determine the product’s regulatory review period. II. Determination of Regulatory Review Period FDA has determined that the applicable regulatory review period for BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS is 4,293 days. Of this time, 3,753 days occurred during the testing phase of the regulatory review period, while 540 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 (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 355(i)) became effective: August 12, 2004. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the date the investigational new drug application (IND) became effective was August 12, 2004. This IND was the first IND submitted for investigation of this active ingredient. 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 20, 2014. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the NDA for BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS (NDA 205836) was initially submitted on November 20, 2014. 3. For a drug recommended for controls under the CSA, the later of the date the NDA was approved under section 505 of the FD&C Act or the date of issuance of the interim final rule controlling the drug: May 12, 2016. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that NDA 205836 was approved on February 18, 2016. FDA has also verified that the date of issuance of the interim final rule controlling the drug, placing BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS (brivaracetam) in schedule V of the CSA as revised by the Improving Regulatory Transparency for New Medical Therapies Act, was May 12, 2016. This determination of the regulatory review period establishes the maximum potential length of a patent extension. However, the USPTO applies several statutory limitations in its calculations of the actual period for patent extension. In its application for patent extension, this applicant seeks 5 years of patent term extension. III. Petitions Anyone with knowledge that any of the dates as published are incorrect may PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submit either electronic or written comments and, under 21 CFR 60.24, ask for a redetermination (see DATES). Furthermore, as specified in § 60.30 (21 CFR 60.30), any interested person may petition FDA for a determination regarding whether the applicant for extension acted with due diligence during the regulatory review period. To meet its burden, the petition must comply with all the requirements of § 60.30, including but not limited to: Must be timely (see DATES), must be filed in accordance with § 10.20, must contain sufficient facts to merit an FDA investigation, and must certify that a true and complete copy of the petition has been served upon the patent applicant. (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. Submit petitions electronically to https://www.regulations.gov at Docket No. FDA–2013–S–0610. Submit written petitions (two copies are required) to the Dockets Management Staff (HFA–305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. Dated: December 6, 2019.
