THIAZOLES with two keto oxygens. Members are insulin-sensitizing agents which overcome INSULIN RESISTANCE by activation of the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma).
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.
A metabolite of AMITRIPTYLINE that is also used as an antidepressive agent. Nortriptyline is used in major depression, dysthymia, and atypical depressions.
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.

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] .

A certain class of antibiotics have been issued a new black box warning because they cause serious nerve damage. Black box warnings are the most serious and often deadly side effects of drugs that are literally outlined in a black box on the package insert. Fluoroquinolones, such as Cipro, Levaquin, and Floxin were prescribed to over 23 million people in 2011 alone. They are commonly prescribed for respiratory and urinary tract infection. These are relatively simple conditions that have many natural and safe treatment alternatives. However, antibiotics are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in America. Those hoping to find health from a pill are in for a very serious and very dangerous surprise. These drugs cause peripheral neuropathy within a few days of starting the medication. The nerve damage may last for months or it may be permanent even when the drug is stopped. They do not cause this nerve damage in every person who takes them; however, you are playing Russian Roulette every time ...
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. For more information please refer to the official FDA warning shown here.. ...

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. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A proposal for a drug information database and text templates for generating package inserts. AU - Okuya, Ryo. AU - Kimura, Masaomi. AU - Ohkura, Michiko. AU - Tsuchiya, Fumito. PY - 2013/7/26. Y1 - 2013/7/26. N2 - To prevent prescription errors caused by information systems, a database to store complete and accurate drug information in a user-friendly format is needed. In previous studies, the primary method for obtaining data stored in a database is to extract drug information from package inserts by employing pattern matching or more sophisticated methods such as text mining. However, it is difficult to obtain a complete database because there is no strict rule concerning expressions used to describe drug information in package inserts. The authors strategy was to first build a database and then automatically generate package inserts by embedding data in the database using templates. To create this database, the support of pharmaceutical companies to input accurate data is ...
Petition to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ), to take action concerning the long term disabling and sometimes permanent central nervous system disorders caused by fluoroquinolone antibiotics. The adverse central nervous system effects include but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, panic attacks, suicidal ideation, depersonalization, toxic psychosis, paranoia, tremors, vertigo, cognitive dysfunction, seizures, and chronic insomnia. These adverse central nervous system effects often do not resolve after discontinuation of the drug. In many instances, these reactions appear many weeks after cessation of the antibiotic and worsen in the following months.. Action Requested:. In order to alert both physicians and patients, this petition requests the FDA to mandate that manufacturers of fluoroquinolone antibiotics adopt the following safety measures:. Place a Black Box warning on the product label to reflect the potential severe long term central nervous system disorders associated ...
Attend this seminar to get understanding of how OTC Drug Products are regulated in the U.S FDA. You will learn about elements of a compliant OTC drug label, Rx drugs, OTC drug review process, OTC drug monograph system, OTC drug ingredients, and FDA enforcement actions.
A number of physicians erroneously believed that certain off-label uses of prescription drugs were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to a recent national survey. Off-label use refers to prescribing a drug for a purpose outside the scope of a drugs approved label. The FDA makes it clear that they regulate the marketing of prescription drugs, not prescribing. The agency approves drugs for marketing with an official label that stipulates an indication, dose, intended population and duration of use. 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 drugs FDA-approved label.. Our research shows that some off-label prescribing might be driven by mistaken beliefs about FDA approval and the level of evidence supporting off-label drug use, G. Caleb Alexander, MD, MS, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center and corresponding ...
The commonest goal (85% of cases) was expansion of drug use to unapproved diseases (for example, gabapentin, which is approved for the treatment of specific types of epilepsy, was allegedly promoted as a therapy for patients with psychiatric diseases such as depression). The other goals were expansion to unapproved disease subtypes (for example, some antidepressant drugs approved for adults were allegedly promoted to pediatricians for use in children) and expansion to unapproved drug dosing strategies, typically higher doses. The researchers also identified four non-mutually exclusive types of marketing practices designed to achieve these goals. All of the whistleblowers alleged prescriber-related practices (including providing financial incentives and free samples to physicians), and most alleged internal practices intended to bolster off-label marketing, such as sales quotas that could only be met if the manufacturers sales representatives promoted off-label drug use. Payer-related practices ...

IVJohn Lawrenson is a senior lecturer in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health at the University of Stellenbosch. The off-label use of drugs is common, particularly in paediatrics, where many drugs have yet to undergo the rigorous scrutiny demanded by authorities such as the Medicines Control Council (MCC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before registration.1,2 Yet some drugs (e.g. paracetamol, salbutamol) are so commonplace in paediatric practice that it may come as a surprise that their use is indeed off-label in many circumstances. Problems may arise when an important drug in everyday (off-label) use is unexpectedly in short supply. An example is dinoprostone, marketed in South Africa as Prostin E2 by Pfizer South Africa (but curiously not listed on their website). Its registered use in South Africa is for induction of labour (as an oral 0.5 mg tablet), yet it is commonly used in South Africa for the emergency maintenance of ductal patency in newborn babies. ...
Proposed legislation would enhance the likelihood of off-label drug coverage for all patients, not limited to specific conditions, by updating Connecticut's almost embarrassingly archaic law.
THE NEURONTIN CONTROVERSY:. THE SAGA OF OFF-LABEL DRUG REGULATION CONTINUES. Robert Kaufman. Class of 2004. April 27, 2004.

Black Box - Wax Trax! Records: The First 13 Years is a box set album compiling songs released on Wax Trax! Records between 1980 and 1993. Black Box commemorates Wax Trax!s output as an independent record label prior to its purchase by TVT Records. In particular, Black Box celebrates Wax Trax!s place as the seminal American industrial label, featuring acts such as Ministry (and its numerous side projects), KMFDM, Meat Beat Manifesto, Coil, Laibach, and many others. Black Box is notable for containing the Trent Reznor Vocal Version of 1000 Homo DJs Supernaut. Reznors vocal recording was not used on the original Wax Trax! release because of pressure from his then-current record label-conspicuously, TVT Records. Absent from Black Box is the work of Front 242, whose releases on Wax Trax! (originally licensed from Play It Again Sam) are not represented because of disputes with Epic Records, which had recently obtained the rights to Front 242s catalogue.

Controversy: whether or not droperidol should be used as an antiemetic agent. Data In Favor of Black Box Warning:. FDA black box warning. Review of Documented Cases: Habib et. al.. The FDA warning is based on 10 reported cases from 1997-2002 [Habib et. al. Anesth Analg 96: 1377, 2003] - these 10 cases were all with 1.25 mg or less.. Data in Favor of Droperidol Use:. Review of Documented Cases: Habib et. al.. In none of the 10 cases with 1.25 mg or less could a definitive cause-effect relationship be described, and in five of them there were substantial confounding factors. Assuming that droperidol sales averaged 11 MM ampules per year, and that these events were truly related to droperidol, the authors estimated that the incidence of associated events was 1:150,000 [Habib et. al. Anesth Analg 96: 1377, 2003] Charbit et. al.. A small study compared QT prolongation with droperidol alone, ondansetron alone, and both combined.

Pazopanib is a multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is approved for the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma and soft tissue sarcomas. However, treatment of patients with advanced disease can be challenging due to impaired liver function from metastasis. Pazopanibs package insert has a black box warning due to severe and fatal hepatotoxicity observed in clinical trials and currently there is limited information regarding pazopanib in patients with liver dysfunction. In a phase I study of pazopanib in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma, the maximum-tolerated dose was determined to be 600 mg per day. Evidence of antitumor activity was seen at this dose; however, the 800 mg per day dose was not tolerable due to dose-limiting toxicities of grade 3 malaise and grade 3 AST/ALT elevation. Liver abnormalities were seen in a majority of the patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated with pazopanib. AST elevation was seen in 63% of the patients. ALT elevation occurred in ...
