ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is withdrawing approval of three new drug applications (NDAs) from multiple holders of those NDAs. The basis for the withdrawal is that these NDA holders have repeatedly failed to file required annual reports for those NDAs. SUMMARY: Approval is withdrawn as of September 13, 2021. DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kimberly S. Lehrfeld, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 51, Rm. 6226, Silver Spring, MD 20993–0002, 301– 796–3137, Kimberly.Lehrfeld@ fda.hhs.gov. The holder of an approved application to market a new drug for human use is required to submit annual reports to FDA concerning its approved application in accordance with § 314.81 (21 CFR 314.81). In the Federal Register of March 3, 2021 (86 FR 12474), FDA published a notice offering an opportunity for a hearing (NOOH) on a proposal to withdraw approval of those NDAs because the holders of those NDAs had repeatedly failed to submit the required annual reports for those NDAs. The holders of the NDAs identified in table 1 did not respond to the NOOH. Failure to file a written notice of participation and request for hearing as required by § 314.200 (21 CFR 314.200) constitutes an election by those holders of the NDAs not to make use of the opportunity for a hearing concerning the proposal to withdraw approval of their NDAs and a waiver of any contentions concerning the legal status of the drug products. Therefore, FDA is withdrawing approval of the three applications listed in table 1.
