Draft Guidance

July 2022

This guidance is intended to assist applicants in incorporating dose banding information into the drug labeling provided in a new drug application (NDA) submitted under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), a biologics license application (BLA) submitted under the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act), or a supplement to one of these approved applications when an applicant proposes to develop ready-to-use containers with a range of different strengths and seeks to incorporate dose banding information into the prescribing information of the proposed drug product based on dosing information of a previously approved drug product that is based on weight or body surface area (BSA).
