Today’s Pet meds Spotlight is on “Generic Frontline Plus” or Fiprogaurd Plus. Generic medications come about when the patent with the original manufacturer, in this case Frontline Plus, Merial, expires. Fiprogaurd Plus can now be considered a true generic of Frontline plus in that it’s active ingredients are exactly the same, fipronil and s-methoprene, and in the same proportions.
Formally known as the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984, Hatch-Waxman allowed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to approve generic drugs for sale if a product’s manufacturer could prove that its copy of a branded drug had the same chemical structure and the same effect as the patented drug. This eliminated the previous requirement that generic drugs undergo extensive human clinical trials. The History of Generic Drugs
