Dec. 30, 2018: My last piece of catching up with the FDA's additions to its monthly raw data over the last 14 years. Patents in the Orange Book Companion will now include a DLR* (delisting requested) tag if the NDA holder has requested that the FDA delist the patent. The patent will remain listed in the Orange Book if the FDA determines that its delisting would adversely affect an ANDA applicant's eligibility for 180-day exclusivity. All ANDA applicants must still provide a patent certification for the patent, but 505(b)(2) applicants no longer need to do so. Try searching the working sample files for "DLR" (not case sensitive) to see examples.

Nov. 4, 2018:
More catching up after my 14 year absence: I have now added patent submission dates for those patents that have them in the Electronic Orange Book. Please look for the "Pat. Sub. Date(s)" line for each patent in the working samples.

Melron's "King Love" by the Allures was recently used in an episode of Netflix's "Master of None" starring Aziz Ansari. In Season 2, Episode 5, Ansari's character, Dev Shah, is at a bar with a date. As he and his date are talking, King Love is playing softly in the background.
