  1. Health Canada to release side-effect data after Star probe

    Wed Jul 02 2014

    Health Minister Rona Ambrose says data on serious side-effects tied to off-label drug prescriptions will be made public.

    Health Canada will make public information it has kept secret regarding serious, sometimes fatal side-effects suspected to have been caused by unapproved “off-label” prescriptions.
    The announcement by the minister of health comes after an ongoing Star investigation exposed the federal regulator was scrubbing crucial information from public view.

    The information — which showed whether a drug involved in a side-effect case had been prescribed for an unapproved use — was removed from side-effect reports before Health Canada published those reports in its online public database.
