Australian Approved Name

An Australian Approved Name (AAN) is a generic drug name set by the TGA for use in Australia.[1] In late 2016 the TGA changed several drug names to the corresponding INN, or in cases where the INN was not available (like with asparaginase) another generic name like the USAN.[2]
