FDA monthly updates the Orange Book on "the end of the 2nd full work week of each month".
For the September, the end of 2nd full week will be September 14; but first week of Sept 3 is the holiday, Labor Day, NOT working day. I wonder this week can be counted for 1st full work week or not.
If yes,then Orange Book updates will be on Sept 14; if not, it will be on Sept 21.
Pertinent point: Lovaza is removed from Orange Book on 9-12-12 due to patent
expiry. I would assume any ambiguity re Prior art of eicoasapent vs icosopent
will also be removed. Thus NCE could be publshed on 9-14-12.
My guess: the first week is a full week even if there is a "hole" in it. It is a full week because it starts after the first day of the month. I think "full" is not meant as "six working days", but rather, "each day is in this month".
