DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Public Health Service Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine Rockville, MD 20855 June 17, 2016 RE: Over-the-Counter (OTC) Animal Drugs Becoming Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) or Prescription (Rx) Dear Animal Food Facility: We are contacting you because you are a potential distributor (retailer) of one or more animal drug products whose marketing status will be changing at the end of calendar year 2016. As you may be aware, over the past several years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken important steps toward changing how antimicrobials that are important in human medicine ("medically important antimicrobials") can be legally used in feed or water for food-producing animals. In Guidance For Industry (GFI) #2131, the FDA asked animal drug sponsors of medically important antimicrobials administered in medicated feed or drinking water of food-producing animals to voluntarily remove from their product labels those indications for production purposes (i.e. growth promotion and feed efficiency), and bring the remaining therapeutic uses of these products under the oversight of a veterinarian by December 2016 – changes that are critical to ensure these drugs are used judiciously and only when appropriate for specific animal health purposes. All of the affected drug sponsors have committed to making the changes we requested. On January 1, 2017, the marketing status of the affected drugs will change from over-the-counter (OTC) to either prescription (Rx) status for drugs administered in medicated drinking water or veterinary feed directive (VFD) status for drugs administered in or on medicated feed. In some cases, drug sponsors may choose to withdraw a product approval completely. Drugs that have either an Rx or VFD marketing status can only be prescribed or authorized for use in animals by a licensed veterinarian. Distributors that are unable to meet the applicable State and Federal requirements for selling and distributing Rx and VFD animal drugs may no longer be able to sell these products once they have transitioned to their new marketing status. If this is the situation, distributors may need to return their unsold inventory to the manufacturer or wholesaler. In addition, FDA recently published the VFD final rule, which outlines the revised process for authorizing use of VFD drugs (animal drugs intended for use in or on animal feed that require the supervision of a licensed veterinarian) and provides veterinarians in all U.S. States with a framework for authorizing the use of medically important antimicrobials in feed when needed for specific animal health purposes. The VFD final rule became effective

Detection of Chronic Kidney Disease* using eGFR (estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate) Why are we changing from Cockcroft-Gault eGFR to MDRD eGFR? The Cockcroft-Gault formula and Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formula are both equations to derive an estimated creatinine clearance based on clinical and laboratory parameters. The Cockcroft-Gault formula requires a weight for the calculation and this means it cannot be generated by the labs. Weight can also be problematic as an ideal, rather than an actual body weight should be used. Using the actual weight, in people with BMI above ideal can result in over estimation of serum creatinine. The MDRD eGFR, which does not require a weight is likely to be closer, if not slightly underestimate creatinine clearance. The MDRD equation is more easily automated by the labs.

Pyometra is typically pre-empted by pathologic changes in the uterus. The Greekderivation of pyometra is: pyo = pus and metra = uterus, so pyometra = an accumulation of pus inthe uterus.

SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY Docket No. FDA-2008-N-0326 Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305) Food and Drug Administration 5630 Fishers Lane, Room 1061 Rockville, MD 20852 Docket No. FDA-2008-N-0326; New Animal Drugs; Cephalosporin Drugs; Extralabel Animal Drug Use; Order of Prohibition Dear Sir or Madam: The National Chicken Council (NCC) appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) final rule entitled "New Animal Drugs; Cephalosporin Drugs; Extralabel Animal Drug Use; Order of Prohibition," published in the Federal Register on January 6, 2012. NCC represents vertically integrated companies that produce and process more than 95 percent of the chicken marketed in the United States. NCC's members will be directly affected by this order. NCC and our members are committed to providing safe, wholesome, and abundant chicken products while ensuring the health and safety of our members' chicken flocks. As part of that commitment, we believe the latest science and technology should be applied to ensure healthy flocks and efficient operations, all with an eye toward providing the consumer the best, most affordable product possible. To that end, drugs like cephalosporins—when properly administered under appropriate conditions—play an important role in ensuring flock health and chick survival rates. Veterinarians need access to important antibiotics to prevent, control, and treat bacterial infections in flocks as well as to protect the general public health. Although we recognize FDA's responsibility to ensure drugs are administered to animals in a manner not likely to harm humans, we do not believe the circumstances justify the broad prohibitions the order imposes. Moreover, we impress upon FDA the importance of providing ample opportunity to meaningfully comment on regulatory action stemming from developing policy areas and the importance of developing broad consensus on the appropriateness of such actions.

The Role of Flavonoids in Osteoarthritis Introduction Humans have used botanical products for medicinal purposes for thousands of years with many of the pharmaceuticals used today derived, in part, from natural substances. Ethnopharmacology has become a major thrust in research and development of new pharmaceutical compounds. Many natural compounds have biologic activity in multiple diseases and physiologic processes from maintaining cardiovascular, renal and gastrointestinal function to safely helping to manage cancer, ulcers, arthritis, and liver disease. Among these safe and effective botanical compounds are flavonoids with more than 9,000 distinct molecular species.

Becoming critical consumers - research and the media

Becoming Critical Consumers: Research and the Media Elizabeth Blackmore, M.A. and Wendi Rockert, M.Ed. Over the past year, newspaper and magazine columns have headlined the "effectiveness" of the newest generation of weight loss fads – the low carbohydrate diet. A recent study, however, showed that both low fat diets and low carbohydrate diets produced comparable rates of weight loss in the longer term. In May, a Toronto research team reported that strict dieting, dangerous weight control practices and eating disorders are occurring at alarming rates amongst grade school children. We are presented with information about food, weight and eating disorders in the media every day, and often make important decisions about our own lives based on what is communicated. At times the information reported in one study is in conflict with information from another study. How do we determine the validity of what we read and hear? Develop a critical stance We rely on the media to inform us of current trends and to transmit the latest research results, despite the fact that we are not formally trained to evaluate the information that appears in newspapers, magazines, on the radio, TV or internet. This is especially true in the case of articles that cite research evidence to support their position. Because most of us are not scientists or statisticians, we often believe what is written in print without questioning some basic assumptions about the research. As consumers of information, we need to adopt a critical stance when we read about research findings. Although the interpretation of complex statistical analyses is well beyond the scope of this article, there are some basic questions/issues to consider which can help you to decide how much emphasis to place on the results that are being reported. This will make you a more informed consumer and ultimately make you more able to arrive at personal decisions which may incorporate what you learn from the media. The research process The general purpose of research is to seek answers to a specific question or problem of interest, known as an ‘hypothesis'. Generally, researchers attempt to answer two main types of questions: 1) What is happening?; and 2) Why is it happening? To explore a particular research question, the researcher chooses a group of interest that they wish to investigate, known as a ‘population' (e.g., women with an eating disorder). Ideally, the researcher would like to study the entire population of interest, but normally this is not possible due to factors such as geography, time constraints and financial resources. Instead, the researcher chooses a subset of people to represent that larger population,

COGSMachine Consciousness: A Design Procedure.Abstract: Whether anyone likes it or not, there is something out there that goes under the heading of ‘machine consciousness' or ‘models of consciousness'. It leads to gatherings of people who come from different backgrounds, some from AI and some from computer modelling of the brain. I fall into the second group and will talk of possible contributions that understanding brain mechanisms through digital models might make to the question: is it possible to build a conscious machine? I shall give a brief description of the digital methodology and then suggest that five major, personally felt attributes are fundamental: perception, imagination, attention, prediction and emotion. These are due to interlocking mechanisms in the brain which might serve as design models for a conscious machine. If time permits, this will be examined against Chalmers' philosophical objections to the idea of a conscious machine.

Journal of Advances in Internal Medicine Editorial Underestimation of clinical importance of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug induced enteropathy and its exacerbation by proton pump inhibitors Umid Kumar Shrestha* Manipal College of Medical Sciences & Manipal Teaching Hospital, Pokhara, Nepal Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used over-the-counter to relieve pain and symptoms of arthritis and soft tissue inflammation. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are often used simultaneously with NSAID to protect against its gastroduodenal side effects. However, the suppression of gastric acid secretion by PPIs does not seem to protect against the damage caused by NSAIDs in the more distal small intestine, often called as NSAID induced enteropathy. In fact, the small intestine seems to be more susceptible to the damaging effects of NSAIDs than the stomach1 and PPI may even exacerbate the NSAID induced enteropathy.2

The treatment of idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in adults

The Treatment of Idiopathic Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis in AdultsJonathan Hogan and Jai Radhakrishnan Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is the histologic end point of many disease processes that affect the kidney.Clinically, adults with FSGS present with proteinuria that may be accompanied by the nephrotic syndrome. Once identifiable(secondary) causes are excluded, the diagnosis of idiopathic FSGS, a challenging glomerular disease to understand andmanage, is made. On the basis of mostly retrospective data, first-line treatment for idiopathic FSGS patients with nephrotic-range proteinuria is a prolonged course of corticosteroids. However, steroid resistance is common and portends an increasedrisk of long-term decline in kidney function and end-stage kidney disease in these patients compared with responders. Multipleother immunosuppression regimens have been used in steroid-resistant FSGS, some of which have been studied in randomizedcontrolled trials. Here, we review the data on the treatment for idiopathic FSGS in adults.Q 2014 by the National Kidney Foundation, Inc. All rights reserved.Key Word: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
