Minor use, minor species (MUMS)/limited market
Following the Committee’s review of one request for classification under the MUMS/limited market policy, the CVMP classified the indication of an immunological product for turkeys as MUMS/market not limited, and therefore eligible for partially reduced data requirements, where applicable. The proposed indication is not eligible for financial incentives as alternative products for the same indication are currently authorised in the EU.
The Committee reviewed the PSURs for Canigen L4 & Nobivac L4, CLYNAV, HALAGON, Locatim, Poulvac E. coli, Sileo, Vectra Felis and ZUPREVO and concluded that no further action or changes to their product information were required.
The Committee also reviewed the PSUR for DRAXXIN and recommended amendments to the product information.
