Pharmaceutical market in the United States of America (USA) is considered the best for its established Regulatory framework. The US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) regulates the manufacture, import, distribution and marketing of pharma products in the country. The term pharma in the USA overarches numerous products and each of them possess a different approach to obtain market authorization. Pharmaceutical products in the country must be registered with the FDA through New Drug Application (NDA) for an Investigational New Drug (IND), Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for a generic drug, and through Biologics License Application (BLA) for a new biologic product.

NDAs and ANDAs are further divided into:

  • Stand-alone NDA - Submitted under section 505(b)(1) and approved under section 505(c) of the FD&C Act
  • 505(b)(2) Application is an NDA - Submitted under section 505(b)(1) and approved under section 505(c) of the FD&C Act
  • ANDA - Submitted and approved under section 505(j) of the FD&C Act
  • Petitioned ANDA - Submitted and approved under section 505(j) of the FD&C Act
