ADVERSE DRUG REACTION DATABASE POSTED ON INTERNET BY HEALTH CANADA

May 27, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com

The Canadian Adverse Drug Reaction Information System (CADRIS) is now directly accessible online at http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/. The database, which will be updated quarterly, contains information on adverse drug reactions that have been reported by consumers, medical personnel, and drug makers since 1965. Searches made be made by product name, active ingredient, date a report was received, patient age and gender, and the nature of the adverse reaction. No confidential patient information is posted. The site contains information on prescription and non-prescription medications, natural health products, biological products, vaccines, and radiopaharmaceuticals.

The establishment of the website "is a major step forward in Health Canada’s transparency agenda" stated Canadian Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh. Being able to monitor adverse reactions "helps ensure that the benefits of a health product continue to outweigh the risks. It also helps us update product labeling and information."
