Identifying Authorized Generics and Mapping to NDC codes

(Ramy Alsaffar) #1

I have a dataset that contains NDC codes.

My questions are as follows:

  • How to create a dataset that contains all Authorized Generics (most importantly containing their application numbers)?

  • How to map Authorized Generics using their application numbers to NDC cods?

I will be thankful to any ideas or suggestions.


How to determine whether a drug is brand or generics?

NDC is too low level. You may have to simplify to a level of an active ingredient. Can you explain more about your context. And the term Authorized Generic. Is AG a drug product (ingredient+dose_form) or an ingredient?
