New Drug Application (NDA)


For decades, the regulation and control of  (pharmaceutical ) new drugs in the United States has been based on the New Drug Application (NDA). Since 1938, every new drug has been the subject of an approved NDA before U.S. commercialization. The NDA application is the vehicle through which drug sponsors formally propose that the FDA approve a new pharmaceutical for sale and marketing in the U.S. The data gathered during the animal studies and human clinical trials of an ( pharmaceutical ) investigational New Drug (IND) become part of the NDA.

The goals of the NDA are to provide enough information to permit FDA reviewer to reach the following key decisions:

Whether the ( pharmaceutical ) drug is safe and effective in its proposed use(s), and whether the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks.
Whether the ( Pharmaceutical ) drug's proposed labeling (package insert) is appropriate, and what it should contain.
Whether the methods used in (pharmaceutical )  manufacturing the drug and the controls used to maintain the drug's quality are adequate to preserve the drug's identity, strength, quality, and purity.
The documentation required in an NDA is supposed to tell the drug's whole story, including what happened during the clinical tests, what the ingredients of the drug are, the results of the animal studies, how the drug behaves in the body, and how it is manufactured, processed and packaged. The following resources provide summaries on NDA content, format, and classification, plus the NDA review process:

Resources for NDA Submissions Are available over US FDA'S website for pharmaceuticals regulatory

Guidance Documents for NDAs Are available over US FDA'S website for pharmaceuticals regulatory

Guidance documents represent the Agency's current thinking on a particular subject. These documents are prepared for FDA review staff and applicants/sponsors to provide guidelines to the processing, content, and evaluation/approval of applications and also to the design, production, manufacturing, and testing of regulated products. They also establish policies intended to achieve consistency in the Agency's regulatory approach and establish inspection and enforcement procedures. Because guidances are not regulations or laws, they are not enforceable, either through administrative actions or through the courts. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statute, regulations, or both. For information on a specific guidance document, please contact the originating office.
For the complete list of CDER guidances, please see the Guidance Index. For information on a specific guidance document, please contact the originating office.
