Competitive Generic Therapies (CGT) is a designation for products that have inadequate generic competition in the market due to low market potential, less profit margin or complexity in manufacturing the drug product. Inadequate competition, as defined by the FDA, means that there is not more than one approved drug in the active section of the orange book. It is necessary for a generic applicant to understand the criteria and timelines for Competitive Generic Therapies Designation before filing a CGT designation request to the FDA.
The Competitive Generics Therapies Designation provides generic manufacturers with a new approval pathway to expedite the development and review the generic drugs, which lack competition through pre-ANDA meetings that help applicants understand the agency’s expectation and reduce the number of review cycles. Additionally, it also provides the applicant with an opportunity of 180-day CGT exclusivity to incentivize the efforts and investments made by the applicant.
