With the holidays, vacations and the partial government shutdown, OGD did not do too badly, with total approval actions of 82 and still a workday to go (and there are always those pesky approvals or tentative approvals that show up after the final bell).  This looks to be one of those “down months” that Cook talked about (I might add there have not been many of them recently), with 65 full approvals so far and 17 tentative approvals logged on the FDA all approvals list, as of Wednesday January 2nd.  Certainly, no record breaker, but let’s see what happens when the official figures come out and see where we stand in a week or two.

Not much else to report over the last week but the news cycle will certainly pick up in 2019.  Hope you all had a happy new year.
