Off-Label Use: The practice of prescribing or using a drug outside the scope of the drug's official approved label as designated by a regulatory agency concerning the treatment of a particular disease or condition.Drug Labeling: Use of written, printed, or graphic materials upon or accompanying a drug container or wrapper. It includes contents, indications, effects, dosages, routes, methods, frequency and duration of administration, warnings, hazards, contraindications, side effects, precautions, and other relevant information.Drug Approval: Process that is gone through in order for a drug to receive approval by a government regulatory agency. This includes any required pre-clinical or clinical testing, review, submission, and evaluation of the applications and test results, and post-marketing surveillance of the drug.Faculty, Medical: The teaching staff and members of the administrative staff having academic rank in a medical school.United States Food and Drug Administration: An agency of the PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE concerned with the overall planning, promoting, and administering of programs pertaining to maintaining standards of quality of foods, drugs, therapeutic devices, etc.Bacteriology: The study of the structure, growth, function, genetics, and reproduction of bacteria, and BACTERIAL INFECTIONS.United StatesCosmetics: Substances intended to be applied to the human body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance without affecting the body's structure or functions. Included in this definition are skin creams, lotions, perfumes, lipsticks, fingernail polishes, eye and facial makeup preparations, permanent waves, hair colors, toothpastes, and deodorants, as well as any material intended for use as a component of a cosmetic product. (U.S. Food & Drug Administration Center for Food Safety & Applied Nutrition Office of Cosmetics Fact Sheet (web page) Feb 1995)Product Labeling: Use of written, printed, or graphic materials upon or accompanying a product or its container or wrapper. It includes purpose, effect, description, directions, hazards, warnings, and other relevant information.Cosmetic Techniques: Procedures for the improvement or enhancement of the appearance of the visible parts of the body.Surgery, Plastic: The branch of surgery concerned with restoration, reconstruction, or improvement of defective, damaged, or missing structures.Esthetics: The branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of the beautiful. It includes beauty, esthetic experience, esthetic judgment, esthetic aspects of medicine, etc.Analgesia, Epidural: The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.Analgesia: Methods of PAIN relief that may be used with or in place of ANALGESICS.Anesthesiology: A specialty concerned with the study of anesthetics and anesthesia.Pediatrics: A medical specialty concerned with maintaining health and providing medical care to children from birth to adolescence.Anesthesia: A state characterized by loss of feeling or sensation. This depression of nerve function is usually the result of pharmacologic action and is induced to allow performance of surgery or other painful procedures.Anesthesia, General: Procedure in which patients are induced into an unconscious state through use of various medications so that they do not feel pain during surgery.Antidepressive Agents, Tricyclic: Substances that contain a fused three-ring moiety and are used in the treatment of depression. These drugs block the uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin into axon terminals and may block some subtypes of serotonin, adrenergic, and histamine receptors. However the mechanism of their antidepressant effects is not clear because the therapeutic effects usually take weeks to develop and may reflect compensatory changes in the central nervous system.Nortriptyline: A metabolite of AMITRIPTYLINE that is also used as an antidepressive agent. Nortriptyline is used in major depression, dysthymia, and atypical depressions.Amitriptyline: Tricyclic antidepressant with anticholinergic and sedative properties. It appears to prevent the re-uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin at nerve terminals, thus potentiating the action of these neurotransmitters. Amitriptyline also appears to antagonize cholinergic and alpha-1 adrenergic responses to bioactive amines.Imipramine: The prototypical tricyclic antidepressant. It has been used in major depression, dysthymia, bipolar depression, attention-deficit disorders, agoraphobia, and panic disorders. It has less sedative effect than some other members of this therapeutic group.Desipramine: A tricyclic dibenzazepine compound that potentiates neurotransmission. Desipramine selectively blocks reuptake of norepinephrine from the neural synapse, and also appears to impair serotonin transport. This compound also possesses minor anticholinergic activity, through its affinity to muscarinic receptors.Clomipramine: A tricyclic antidepressant similar to IMIPRAMINE that selectively inhibits the uptake of serotonin in the brain. It is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and demethylated in the liver to form its primary active metabolite, desmethylclomipramine.Doxepin: A dibenzoxepin tricyclic compound. It displays a range of pharmacological actions including maintaining adrenergic innervation. Its mechanism of action is not fully understood, but it appears to block reuptake of monoaminergic neurotransmitters into presynaptic terminals. It also possesses anticholinergic activity and modulates antagonism of histamine H(1)- and H(2)-receptors.Methylphenidate: A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER in children and for NARCOLEPSY. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. The d-isomer of this drug is referred to as DEXMETHYLPHENIDATE HYDROCHLORIDE.Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity: A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)Central Nervous System Stimulants: A loosely defined group of drugs that tend to increase behavioral alertness, agitation, or excitation. They work by a variety of mechanisms, but usually not by direct excitation of neurons. The many drugs that have such actions as side effects to their main therapeutic use are not included here.Product Packaging: Form in which product is processed or wrapped and labeled. PRODUCT LABELING is also available.Amphetamine: A powerful central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic. Amphetamine has multiple mechanisms of action including blocking uptake of adrenergics and dopamine, stimulation of release of monamines, and inhibiting monoamine oxidase. Amphetamine is also a drug of abuse and a psychotomimetic. The l- and the d,l-forms are included here. The l-form has less central nervous system activity but stronger cardiovascular effects. The d-form is DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.Drug Industry: That segment of commercial enterprise devoted to the design, development, and manufacture of chemical products for use in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, disability, or other dysfunction, or to improve function.Serotonin Uptake Inhibitors: Compounds that specifically inhibit the reuptake of serotonin in the brain.Family Practice: A medical specialty concerned with the provision of continuing, comprehensive primary health care for the entire family.Adverse Drug Reaction Reporting Systems: Systems developed for collecting reports from government agencies, manufacturers, hospitals, physicians, and other sources on adverse drug reactions.Great BritainFluoxetine: The first highly specific serotonin uptake inhibitor. It is used as an antidepressant and often has a more acceptable side-effects profile than traditional antidepressants.Citalopram: A furancarbonitrile that is one of the SEROTONIN UPTAKE INHIBITORS used as an antidepressant. The drug is also effective in reducing ethanol uptake in alcoholics and is used in depressed patients who also suffer from tardive dyskinesia in preference to tricyclic antidepressants, which aggravate this condition.Licensure: The legal authority or formal permission from authorities to carry on certain activities which by law or regulation require such permission. It may be applied to licensure of institutions as well as individuals.Spin Labels: Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)Face: The anterior portion of the head that includes the skin, muscles, and structures of the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks, and jaw.Affinity Labels: Analogs of those substrates or compounds which bind naturally at the active sites of proteins, enzymes, antibodies, steroids, or physiological receptors. These analogs form a stable covalent bond at the binding site, thereby acting as inhibitors of the proteins or steroids.Facial Expression: Observable changes of expression in the face in response to emotional stimuli.Pattern Recognition, Visual: Mental process to visually perceive a critical number of facts (the pattern), such as characters, shapes, displays, or designs.Phylogeny: The relationships of groups of organisms as reflected by their genetic makeup.Molecular Sequence Data: Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.Superstitions: A belief or practice which lacks adequate basis for proof; an embodiment of fear of the unknown, magic, and ignorance.Pharmacies: Facilities for the preparation and dispensing of drugs.Caffeine: A methylxanthine naturally occurring in some beverages and also used as a pharmacological agent. Caffeine's most notable pharmacological effect is as a central nervous system stimulant, increasing alertness and producing agitation. It also relaxes SMOOTH MUSCLE, stimulates CARDIAC MUSCLE, stimulates DIURESIS, and appears to be useful in the treatment of some types of headache. Several cellular actions of caffeine have been observed, but it is not entirely clear how each contributes to its pharmacological profile. Among the most important are inhibition of cyclic nucleotide PHOSPHODIESTERASES, antagonism of ADENOSINE RECEPTORS, and modulation of intracellular calcium handling.Dietary Supplements: Products in capsule, tablet or liquid form that provide dietary ingredients, and that are intended to be taken by mouth to increase the intake of nutrients. Dietary supplements can include macronutrients, such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats; and/or MICRONUTRIENTS, such as VITAMINS; MINERALS; and PHYTOCHEMICALS.Coffee: A beverage made from ground COFFEA beans (SEEDS) infused in hot water. It generally contains CAFFEINE and THEOPHYLLINE unless it is decaffeinated.Premenstrual Syndrome: A combination of distressing physical, psychologic, or behavioral changes that occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Symptoms of PMS are diverse (such as pain, water-retention, anxiety, cravings, and depression) and they diminish markedly 2 or 3 days after the initiation of menses.Carbonated Beverages: Drinkable liquids combined with or impregnated with carbon dioxide.

Modernizing the FDA: an incremental revolution. (1/341)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting consumers from unsafe or ineffective drugs and medical devices. The agency's role is defined by a growing and increasingly complex set of statutes, which reflect Congress's desires, on the one hand, to prevent product hazards and, on the other, to expedite FDA review and approval of promising new medical technologies. Congress's latest attempt to calibrate regulation to achieve these goals, the 1997 Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act, endorses certain of the FDA's own innovations and changes in the agency's ways of doing business.  (+info)

Pharmaceutical donations by the USA: an assessment of relevance and time-to-expiry. (2/341)

This paper assesses the relevance and time-to-expiry of pharmaceutical donations by the USA by means of a convenience sample of two private voluntary organizations. Data were collected on 16,566 donations shipped between 1994 and 1997 for the two organizations to a total of 129 countries. For three field study countries (Armenia, Haiti, and the United Republic of Tanzania), between 37% and 65% of donated unique drug products were on the recipient countries' essential drugs lists, and between 50% and 80% were either on these lists or were permissible therapeutic alternatives. Between 10% and 42% were not listed on either the national essential drugs lists or the WHO Model List of Essential Drugs, nor were they permissible therapeutic alternatives. For the worldwide data set, the median times to expiry when shipment by the organizations took place were 599 and 550 days; about 30% of shipment items had a year or less of shelf-life, and about 6% had less than 100 days of shelf-life. Although a majority of the donations fulfilled the criteria of relevance and time-to-expiry, a substantial proportion failed to do so. Actions are proposed with a view to improving the relevance and time-to-expiry of USA pharmaceutical donations.  (+info)

Effects of written drug information on patient knowledge and compliance: a literature review. (3/341)

The prospect of patient-oriented prescription drug labeling has focused increased attention on the effectiveness of written information for the consumer. Studies which have evaluated the effects of written prescription drug information in a patient population are reviewed. Several studies indicate that written information can be effective in improving patient compliance with regimens for antibiotic therapy. However, for drugs used on a long-term basis, written information as a sole intervention has not been shown to be sufficient for improving patient compliance. Patient knowledge of less commonly known information, such as precautions, side effects, or special directions is frequently improved by written information. Listing a drug's side effects has not been shown to increase the reported experience of side effects; however, one study suggests that patients may be more willing to report side effects to a health professional if they are listed in the written information. The trend for recent studies has been to focus on the "milieu" in which written information is provided or to systematically vary structural features of the information in order to improve the quality of drug communications.  (+info)

Functional foods: the Food and Drug Administration perspective. (4/341)

Because the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) does not provide a statutory definition of functional foods, the Food and Drug Administration has no authority to establish a formal regulatory category for such foods. The primary determinant of the regulatory status of a food is its intended use, which is determined largely by the label and labeling information accompanying the product. This information includes nutrient information, nutrient content claims, and various types of health claims. In marketing these foods, manufacturers may come under one of several existing regulatory options. The first decision manufacturers will make that will help determine their product's regulatory status is whether the product is a food or a drug. Thus, manufacturers and retailers have a range of legal and regulatory categories in which their products may be classified. This article describes the definitions provided in the FFDCA for a drug and a food, the safety and labeling requirements of various food categories, and types of possible claims for dietary supplements.  (+info)

Unlicensed and off-label medication use in a general pediatrics ambulatory hospital unit in Israel. (5/341)

BACKGROUND: Many medications used for children have not undergone evaluation to assure acceptable standards for optimal dose, safety and efficacy. As a result, the majority of children admitted to hospital wards receive medications outside the terms of their license (off-label) or medications that are not specifically licensed for use in children (unlicensed). The extent of unlicensed and off-label medication use in ambulatory children is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent of unlicensed and off-label medication use in a general pediatrics ambulatory hospital unit in Israel. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of the medical records of 132 outpatient children treated in the General Pediatrics Ambulatory Unit of the Soroka Medical Center, Beer Sheva, in November-December 1998. RESULTS: The children's ages ranged from 1 month to 18 years (mean +/- SD 50 +/- 58 months). Of the 222 prescriptions given to these children, one-third were unlicensed (8%) or unlabeled (26%). Different dose and age were the most common categories of off-label medication use. All 18 cases of unlicensed use were due to modification of licensed drugs (tablets were crushed to prepare suspensions). Altogether, 42% of children received medicines that were off-label and/or unlicensed. CONCLUSIONS: More off-label than unlicensed medications were used. Further investigations are required to establish the extent of unproved drug use in both hospitalized and ambulatory pediatric patients in Israel. Recommendations recently issued by the Ministry of Health's National Council for Child Health and Pediatrics constitute a first step in the Israeli contribution to the international effort demanding testing of medications for children.  (+info)

Over-the-counter human drugs; labeling requirements; final rule; technical amendment. Food and Drug Administration, HHS. Final rule; technical amendment. (6/341)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the regulation that established a standardized format and standardized content requirements for the labeling of over-the-counter (OTC) drug products, and is amending several related OTC drug product labeling regulations. This amendment corrects and conforms several aspects of the new labeling requirements to other regulatory provisions and eliminates unnecessary text from the new labeling regulation.  (+info)

Unlicensed and off label prescribing of drugs in general practice. (7/341)

AIM: To determine the incidence and nature of unlicensed and off label prescribing of drugs for children in general practice. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all prescriptions for one year involving children (aged 12 years or under) from a single suburban general practice in the English Midlands. Prescribed drugs were categorised as licensed, unlicensed (without a product licence), or used in an off label way (outside the terms of their product licence). RESULTS: During 1997 there were 3347 prescription items involving 1175 children and 160 different drugs. A total of 2828 (84. 5%) prescriptions were for licensed medicines used in a licensed way; 10 (0.3%) were for unlicensed medicines; and 351 (10.5%) were licensed medicines used in an off label way. For 158 (4.7%) the information was insufficient to determine licence status. CONCLUSION: This is the first study to show that a significant number of drugs prescribed for children by general practitioners are off label and highlights the anomalies and inadequacies of drug information for prescribers.  (+info)

Off label and unlicensed drug use among French office based paediatricians. (8/341)

AIMS: To determine the extent of off label and unlicensed drug use in French office based paediatric practice. METHODS: A prospective one day survey of all written prescriptions, for patients under 15 years, among 95 office based paediatricians in the Paris, France metropolitan area. Main outcome measures were: comparison of the use of each drug with its product licence for age, indication, dose, and route of administration. RESULTS: A total of 2522 prescriptions were administered to 989 patients; 844 (33%) were used either in an unlicensed (4%) or an off label (29%) manner. A total of 550 (56%) paediatric patients received one or more off label prescriptions. CONCLUSIONS: Off label prescriptions (that is, outside the terms of the Summary of Product Characteristics) are widespread in office based paediatric practice, while unlicensed drug use is rare in our study. New regulations in the licensing process in Europe are needed to allow children to receive drugs that have been fully evaluated in their specific age group.  (+info)

May 23, 2007. In May 2007, the FDA ordered all manufacturers of gadolinium based contrast agents to include a black box warning on their product labels. A black box warning is the strongest warning that the FDA requires and means that a particular drug carries a significant risk of serious or even life-threatening side effects. Specifically, the gadolinium black box warning states that patients with kidney problems or renal failure are at risk of developing Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis ("NSF") / Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy ("NFD") if injected with gadolinium.. The FDA has announced that it will continue to investigate the connection between NSF / NFD in patients with kidney problems and gadolinium based contrast agents. In the meantime, the FDA has asked all persons with kidney problems who have been diagnosed with NSF / NFD to report their symptoms to the agency. Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis ("NSF"), also known as Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy ("NFD"), is a debilitating, and sometimes ...
Out-of-date or incomplete drug product labeling information may increase the risk of otherwise preventable adverse drug events. In recognition of these concerns, the United States Federal Drug Administration (FDA) requires drug product labels to include specific information. Unfortunately, several studies have found that drug product labeling fails to keep current with the scientific literature. We present a novel approach to addressing this issue. The primary goal of this novel approach is to better meet the information needs of persons who consult the drug product label for information on a drugs efficacy, effectiveness, and safety. Using FDA product label regulations as a guide, the approach links drug claims present in drug information sources available on the Semantic Web with specific product label sections. Here we report on pilot work that establishes the baseline performance characteristics of a proof-of-concept system implementing the novel approach. Claims from three drug information sources

On May 9, 2007, the U.S. Food and Drug Administratio issued a public health advisory outlining new safety information about ESAs [1] . This included a new black box warning advising physicians to adjust the ESA dose to maintain the lowest hemoglobin level needed to avoid the need for a blood transfusion. Physicians and patients were to weigh the risks of ESAs against the risks of a blood transfusion.. The American Association of Kidney Patients, in cooperation with its Medical Advisory Board quickly responded, noting that:. • The history of ESAs dates to 1989 [2, 3] .

But a new study led by University of Michigan and VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System researchers shows the use of these second-generation medications began to decline significantly in 2003, years ahead of a "black box" warning from the Food and Drug Administration in 2005 - the strongest type of warning issued by the FDA.. Helen C. Kales, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Michigan Medical School and researcher at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, says this shows that emerging understanding of the medications increased risk of diabetes and stroke was taken seriously.. Prescriptions of the second-generation medications dropped off more steeply after the black box warning, which shows that it too had an impact, says Kales, the studys lead author.. "If you look at the history of black box warnings, sometimes they have an effect and sometimes they do not," she says. "When the warning was issued about children taking antidepressants, we saw a big drop in use, but in other ...

In March 2015 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revised its black box warning label for Chantix to include potential negative interactions with alcohol and the possibility of seizure. The FDA alerts Chantix users that they should decrease their alcohol use until they know how Chantix affects their tolerance, and to seek medical attention if a seizure were to occur. This warning adds to the original 2009 FDA Chantix black box warning, resulting from consumer reports of depressed mood, suicidal thoughts, hostility, and agitation. While these side effects are quite uncommon, they should be monitored when taking Chantix. Users are also recommended to keep ongoing communication with their physician.

The pharmaceutical company applies for the specific clinical indications and has to submit reams of data to support the application. The FDA then looks at the application and the data and approves the proposed indication or denies it. If subsequently an off label use becomes widespread or standard of care (i.e amiodarone and atrial fibrillation), the drug company really has no economic incentive to spend the millions of dollars to seek FDA approval for an additional clinical indication. Unless the drug company applies for additional approved clinical indications, they will never appear on the package insert. The FDA does not independently establish new clinical indications. ...

Some may not state any procedural steps, opting instead to refer the user to the test system package insert or the instrument manual. Specimen Collection and Handling. Tests may be designed for one type of specimen (e.g. whole blood) or several different types (e.g. whole blood, urine, throat swab, etc.).

Its all big one shell game, aint it. Its hard to believe that we are the only/first ones to have noticed this one, and its a doozy. People are still sharing the fact, first discussed here at MadScientists.Exposed, that the Tripedia DTAP vaccine lists both "Autism" and "SIDS" right in its package insert as known adverse reactions. Once the anti-vax community picked up on that about 18 months ago, the vaccine industry went so far as to RENAME the vaccine from "Tripedia" to "Daptacel", with the ONLY purpose being so it could reissue the package insert, in order to RENAME "SIDS" to "Apnea", and REPLACE "Autism" with a mere list of its symptoms. "Old" Tripedia DTAP package insert, listing SIDS & Autism in print, on page 11: "New" Daptacel DTAP package insert, wherein SIDS is renamed "Apnea" on page 11 (same thing - baby stops breathing and dies), and the symptoms of the onset of Autism (unearthly inconsolable screaming, encephalopathy, fever, etc, are scattered and played down in paragraphs and ...

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has notified health care professionals that new risks have been added to the drug label for the asthma drug Xolair (omalizumab). New safety studies show that patients taking the drug are at a slightly higher risk for problems with the heart and blood vessels supplying the brain than patients not taking Xolair. Although the studies showed no increased rates of cancer in patients taking the drug, the FDA states that the potential risk of cancer cannot be ruled out. "Patients taking Xolair should continue to take the medication as prescribed and discuss any questions or concerns with their health care professionals," noted the Agency.

Compared to many other drugs for MS, this one has relatively tolerable side effects. It does not have a black box warning. The main warning is that Tecfidera may decrease lymphocyte counts by a mean of 30% during the first year of therapy but then the levels remain stable. The lymphocyte count improves after ceasing therapy but does not return to baseline. Six percent of patients taking Tecfidera develop a lymphocyte count lower than 500, dangerously low.. Performing an annual blood test to determine the lymphocyte count is recommended.. The most common adverse event is flushing which occurred in 40% of patients and resulted in 3% of patients stopping therapy.. The second common adverse set of events is gastrointestinal - nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and dyspepsia - collectively resulted in an additional 4% of patients who discontinue therapy.. Other adverse events include hepatic transaminase elevations that occurred primarily in the first 6 months of therapy and were not ...

  • Kids probably reap the greatest benefit from off-label prescriptions. (
  • As the director of, a nonprofit organization dedicated to exposing the effects of pharmaceutical marketing on prescriptions, she's a critic of off-label promotion. (
  • Three years ago, Stanford researchers found that 20 percent of all prescriptions are written for "off-label" use, such as using an anti-seizure drug to treat attention-deficit disorder, and the vast majority of such uses "had little or no scientific support. (
  • What's more, the majority of those prescriptions were written for so-called off-label conditions, such as depression and multiple sclerosis, researchers found. (
  • The main drug classes were antibacterials, antiasthmatics and analgesics, and represented 56% of off-label prescriptions. (
  • Paracetamol (385 prescriptions) and beclomethasone (339) were the generic substances most often used off-label. (
  • The most common off-label categories were dosage/frequency (50% of prescriptions), indication and lack of paediatric licence (7% each). (
  • Studies have shown that one in five prescriptions written in the United States is for an off-label usage, and that as many as 73% of off-label usages have little or no scientific evidence backing up the theory that the drug would prove efficacious in treating the patient's condition. (
  • It's a legal, and routine, medical practice: More than one in five prescriptions in the United States are written for such 'off label' uses. (
  • A respondent who has low vision regularly takes prescriptions with labels that have very small print. (
  • Drug makers can't legally promote off-label uses for drugs, and most insurance companies don't cover off-label prescriptions. (

  • Previously, we combined in vivo SILAC material with a targeted high resolution single ion monitoring (tHR/SIM) LC-MS/MS approach for quantification of 197 peptide pairs, representing 51 drug metabolism enzymes (DME), in mouse liver. (
  • Using DME-enhanced in vivo SILAC material with tHR/SIM, therefore, permits the robust analysis of multiple DME of importance to xenobiotic metabolism, with improved utility for the study of drug pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and of chemically treated and genetically modified mouse models. (

  • MOXXI's novel feature allows documentation and linking of treatment indication to the prescribed drug. (
  • Electronic health records can be used to document treatment indication at the time of prescribing and may pave the way for enhanced postmarketing evaluation of drugs if linked to treatment outcomes. (
  • However, physicians and other licensed prescribers are free to prescribe any approved drug for any indication, whether or not the indication is included on the drug's FDA-approved label. (
  • The 2007-2008 survey of 1,199 physicians -- 599 primary care physicians and 600 psychiatrists -- included 22 drug-indication pairs. (
  • Overall, physicians were able to correctly identify the FDA-approval status of just over half of the 22 drug-indication pairs -- i.e., a particular drug prescribed for a particular condition. (
  • In many cases, the proportion of physicians who erroneously believed a particular drug was FDA approved for a specific use was higher among physicians who had prescribed the drug for that indication. (
  • However, knowledge about FDA labeling can be important, because FDA approval of a drug for a specific indication indicates a clear threshold of evidence supporting that use," Donna Chen, MD, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Ethics, Public Health Sciences, and Psychiatry at the University of Virginia is quoted as saying. (
  • Carefully weigh the potential risk of thromboembolic events suggested by this study when considering prescribing NovoSeven for an off-label indication to non-hemophiliacs. (
  • A common reason is that the indication for the drug is not approved, eg, methylxanthines for the treatment of apnea of prematurity. (
  • If extensive off-label use is anticipated, a company may seek approval for just a narrow indication in order to speed a drug to market. (
  • In other words, a drug may be approved for this very narrow "decoy indication" while an extensive off-label campaign is not disclosed to drug regulators. (
  • This observation suggests that the risk applies to all antiepileptic drugs used for any indication. (
  • While doctors can prescribe drugs for any use they see fit, it is illegal for pharmaceutical companies to promote off-label uses until they have conducted necessary studies and research to establish that the indication is safe and effective. (
  • Similarly, the labeled conjugates and synthetic intermediates are 2'-derivatives of the drug or a precursor thereof. (
  • Chemically modified proteins play an important role in several fields of pharmaceutical R&D, starting from various activities in drug discovery all the way down to biopharmaceuticals with improved properties such as antibody-drug conjugates. (
  • However, site-specific protein labeling is expected to increase in importance, in particular for antibody-drug conjugates and other chemically modified biopharmaceuticals. (
  • However, physicians are allowed under FDA rules to prescribe drugs or devices for uses other than what the drug was initially approved for. (
  • Also, physicians with high scores on evidence-based practice were found to be less likely to prescribe off-label. (
  • Some physicians and health care experts maintain that physicians should know the evidence, not the FDA labeling. (
  • Although the company wouldn't identify the medicine in question, any drug with seven letters, beginning with 'A,' from Abreva (cold sores) to Aprida (fast-acting insulin) or Advair (inhalable asthma drug) -- if written in the illegible script that physicians are notoriously known for -- could lead to mistaken prescription fills at the pharmacy level. (
  • Many of the doctors who turn to it for off-label uses are physicians with minimal training in psychiatry and, medical experts say, too little understanding of the potential downsides. (
  • The increasing use of NovoSeven in a variety of emergency bleeding situations both in clinical trials and independently by physicians has resulted in the drug being increasingly used in populations with higher predisposition to thromboembolic and other systemic adverse events, such as older individuals, people with underlying cardiovascular disease, and people with acute injuries, said a spokeswoman for Novo Nordisk, the drug’s maker.
