There was a public declaration in the last march, for new approvals of specific drugs and devices. The clinical information and observations were released and given to Health Canada. This was made possible due to the changes made in the rules and regulations of the country’s food, drug and medical devices.
But after those changes had been made, not many new drugs and devices were published. The clinical trials of one drug and one device have been published and the amendments were not that profitable since there were a lot more new drugs and devices before in the previous 2 months.
The efficacy of the drug, its effect on the body and the pharmacological studies is the basic information that has to be disclosed regarding every new drug to be published. Other drugs may have other things as well such as their side effects that need to be made public before the use of the drug.
Health Canada has released several drugs for the treatment of various diseases, including terminal diseases such as cancer. Drugs for measles, mumps and vaccines for the reoccurring diseases are also released by Health Canada. Information about various drugs was released in July and August.
As far as the devices are concerned, Health Canada has made quite an impressive progress in that field too. It has published information on various high tech devices.
Furthermore, In future Health Canada is expecting to release information on more drugs and devices. Information regarding 20 drugs is expected and regarding 5 devices is to be published.
Health Canada has made all of the clinical information of its drugs public. It is easily accessible to any person. All the drugs that they have released have their information on Health Canada’s information portal. The drugs that have had their final regulatory decision can be used and we can get information about them on the portal.
