  • Cancer society decries drug shortage 29March 2012
    (NortonScientificCollection) - It is unacceptable
    that some cancer patients cant readily get the
    drugs they need because of supply problems, the
    C?a?n?a?d?i?a?n??n?b?s?p??C?a?n?c?e?r??n?b?s?p?
    ?S?o?c?i?e?t?y says. The society is hearing from
    worried patients and doctors across the country,
    said Dan Demers, the group's director of public
    issues.
  • "We shouldn't have to wait for a crisis to
    respond," said Demers. The cancer society urged
    the federal government to Ensure there is
    mandatory listing of unavailable drugs by drug
    manufacturer. Develop early warning systems to
    identify potential drug shortages. Put
    systems in place to prevent shortages from
    escalating. Work with other jurisdictions
    to investigate the root causes of the shortages
    and act to prevent them where possible.

  • Canada's supply of injectable drugs such as
    painkillers, antibiotics and anesthetics became
    more precarious following a fire in the boiler
    room at Sandoz Canada's p?l?a?n?t??n?b?s?p??i?n?
    ?n?b?s?p??B?o?u?c?h?e?r?v?i?l?l?e?, Que.
    "Production has resumed in the portion of the
    plant that was not directly affected by
    the incident, which took place on March 4," the
    company said in a email to CBC News on Monday.
    "Our objective is to restore previous levels of
    supply as soon as possible, and we will make
    every effort to meet medical needs, while
    ensuring consistent high quality standards."

Hospitals and drug purchasers have been holding
daily conference calls to mitigate shortages.
Doctors are carefully selecting patients who can
swallow to give them oral forms of the
medications, said Myrella Roy, executive director
of the Canadian Society of Hospital
P?h?a?r?m?a?c?i?s?t?s??n?b?s?p??i?n??n?b?s?p??
O?t?t?a?w?a?. Last week, officials with Alberta
Health Services asked doctors to
conserve injectable m?e?d?i?c?a?t?i?o?n?s?.??n?b?
s?p??C?a?n?c?e?r??n?b?s?p??p?a?t?i?e?n?t?s
were asked to get oral anti-nausea
medications instead of injections before
chemotherapy treatment.

In mid-February, Sandoz informed hospitals and
other health-care clients that it was partially
closing its plant inBoucherville while it
improved its process to meet U.S. safety
standards, the Canadian Anesthesiologists'
Society s?a?i?d??n?b?s?p??i?n??n?b?s?p??a??n?
b?s?p??n?e?w?s??n?b?s?p??r?e?l?e?a?s?e?. The
company told the anesthesiologists group that
dozens of critical medications will no longer be
manufactured while others will be available on
"allocation" based upon previous usage, a
manufacturing and delivery situation that could
last 12 to 18 months, the group said in their
release. Health Canada said last week it is
working to identify alternate sources of supply
and expedite approvals for any drug companies
that meet Canadian standards for safety and
effectiveness.
