Executive Summary

FDA approves a supplemental new drug application for a 3-count sample package of Salonpas Pain Relief Patch and Salonpas Arthritis Pain, the agency says in an Aug. 25 letter to Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical. The NDA for the methyl salicylate and 1-menthol topical patches originally received approval in February. Transdermal patch maker Hisamitsu, whose U.S. operations are based in Torrance, Calif., said the products are "the first FDA-approved OTC topical analgesic patch with great elasticity and snugness," and are more effective than placebo patches for relief of mild to moderate muscle pains
