Abbreviated New Drug Application

Generic-drug companies use an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) to get a generic drug approved by the U.S. FDA.

Expanded Definition

The application shows that the generic-drug maker can produce an exact copy of the branded-drug and is currently only available for drugs approved under a New Drug Application, not a Biologics Licensing Application.
