March 30, 2018

The American Sheep Industry Association joined with two dozen groups representing members who "raise, feed and provide care and other services for the nation's nearly 10 billion food animals" this week in supporting the timely reauthorization of an enhanced Animal Drug User Fee Act "that includes expansion of authority for conditional approval for the new animal drugs addressing serious and life-threatening unmet medical needs for major uses in major species.

"ADUFA has worked well to provide stability and predictability in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine's process for the review of new animal medicines and we support its reauthorization," read the letter to Congress. "We appreciate your timely consideration of the ADUFA reauthorization and ask that you provide a pathway for new and innovative products to help us keep animals healthy by expanding the authority for conditional approval for major uses in major species."
