Abbreviated New Drug Application - Overview
The Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) is an application submitted to the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) for the review and approval of a generic drug demonstrating bioequivalence against an already-approved innovator drug so that the generic drug can be used as a safe, effective, and low-cost alternative to the brand-name drugs.
Applicants must file the ANDA submissions based on the content and format, Refuse-to-Receive (RTR) standards, and other US FDA guidelines, particularly the 505(j), for successful ANDA approval during the first review cycle.
