Here's an opportunity to get all the details in a new report available from FDAnews.

New chemical entities (NCEs)/new molecular entities (NMEs)
Changes to previously approved drugs
Changes in dosage form, strength or route of administration
Changes from prescription (Rx) indications to over-the-counter (OTC) indications
Substitution of an active ingredient in a combination product
