Yes, pediatric exclusivity is the only exclusivity that runs from the end of other exclusivity protection (New Drug Product and Orphan Drug) or patent protection. A six-month pediatric exclusivity that attaches after a patent term is not a patent extension; it is a FDA-enforced exclusivity period that begins at the termination of the patent.
