ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 27, 2018 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Profounda, Inc. ("Profounda") announced today that it has received the US Food and Drug Administration's Competitive Generic Therapy (CGT) Designation for the planned future ANDA filing of minocycline Hydrochloride Microspheres, 1 mg, pursuant to section 506H(b) of the FD&C Act.
The CGT program came into being following the FDA Reauthorization Act 2017 (FDARA) and is designed to reduce the number of review cycles that generic applications usually undergo. A drug can qualify for CGT designation if there is no more than 1 approved drug in the active section of the FDA's Orange Book. The first approvals under this act were granted in August of 2018. Brand sales for this drug exceed $150 Million USD and represent an exciting generic opportunity for the company. If approved, patients needing treatment for periodontal disease may have an effective and more affordable generic alternative for treatment.
