The US Army used MARK-1 composed of atropine autoinjector and 2-PAM autoinjector as a medical countermeasure against nerve agent poisoning. Recently, it has been being replaced by the ATNAA(Antidote Treatment Nerve Agent AutoInjector) for improvement the convenience in use and rapid detoxification effect. ATNAA(FDA approval, NDA 21-175, 2002. 1. 17) is a multi-chambered autoinjector that sequentially delivers atropine and 2-PAM through a single needle to allow Warfighters to survive against lethal exposure to nerve agents. In this paper, our group investigated the case of FDA approval of ATNAA in a point of the various data required by FDA guideline, thereby making it easy to meet the KFDA guideline for the approval of the prototype our group has been developed. The purpose of this study is to provide a reference for efficient research activities to minimize time and cost. Additionally, the purpose of this study is to provide a reference for the planning for the development of similar drug.
