Minesoft Orangebook

Share this on social media:

Patent information provider Minesoft has launched a new free service for searching the authoritative drug database from the FDA.

Minesoft Orangebook is said to offer a powerful, user-friendly interface for searching the FDA’s electronic database of approved generic drug products. The resource enables users to search for drugs with a specific active ingredient, view the approval history of a drug, and keep an eye on patent expiry dates. This is powered by a special indexing system for enhanced data retrieval.

Minesoft Orangebook can be searched by drug proprietary name, active ingredient, patent number, pharmaceutical applicant name and application number. The database can also be searched by exclusivity expiry. Regular updates provide current information about newly approved generic drugs.
