27 May 2015 Toronto - The number of new cancer cases in Canada is expected to rise about 40% in the next 15 years, according to a new report - Canadian Cancer Statistics 2015 - released today by the Canadian Cancer Society, in collaboration with the Public Health Agency of Canada and Statistics Canada. The Canadian Cancer Society is calling for a coordinated and comprehensive plan to address this serious challenge. This is the first time the annual Canadian Cancer Statistics report has presented long-term predictions of the future burden of cancer. The report estimates that 277,000 people a year will be diagnosed with cancer by 2030 - a 40% rise in cases - led by upsurges in prostate and colorectal cancer cases.. Tremendous progress has already been made in the fight against cancer, including big gains in survival rates. But Canadas rapidly aging population - 1 in 4 Canadians will be 65 or older by 2030 - could push the country beyond its current capacity to provide adequate care for cancer ...

This is the first nationally representative analysis of OC use by sociodemographic characteristics, cardiovascular risk factors, and medication formulation.. Estimates of OC use in Canada (16% of women aged 15 to 49) were comparable to survey-based estimates for 2006 to 2010 from the United States (17% of women aged 15 to 44)Note 34 and a 1996/1997 Canadian estimate (18% of women aged 15 to 49).Note 24 It is difficult to compare CHMS data with those of studies from countries such as DenmarkNote 35 and Australia,Note 4,Note 36 which used non-specific annual or bi-annual reference periods and/or excluded some populations.. In this study, OC use decreased with age, and nulliparous women were more likely than parous women to use OCs. These findings are similar to other Canadian studies and to American, Danish, and Australian research.Note 2,Note 4,Note 24,Note 34-36 Possible explanations may be that at older ages, women prefer IUDs, permanent contraceptive methods, or barrier methods.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Canada has one of the worlds highest rates of childhood inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with new diagnoses increasing the most among Canadian children younger than 5, new research has found.. The rate of IBD among these younger children rose by more than 7 percent per year between 1999 and 2010.. IBD, which includes Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis, is "still very rare in this age group compared to teenagers and young adults," said Dr. Eric Benchimol, a pediatric gastroenterologist at the Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, in email to Reuters Health.. In a previous review of earlier research, Benchimol and colleagues found that global rates of childhood-onset IBD have increased rapidly over the past two decades, although most countries lack accurate estimates.. "We knew that the incidence of pediatric IBD was increasing in Ontario and around the world, but we didnt have national numbers for Canada," he said. To investigate, Benchimol and ...

Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in men. In fact, about one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. One new case of prostate cancer occurs every 2.2 minutes and a man dies from prostate cancer every 15.6 minutes.. Health Canada released a statement last week about the possible increased risk of "high-grade" (aggressive) prostate cancer in men taking the drugs finasteride and dutasteride. Both of these drugs are used to treat male balding but are also used to treat men with enlarged prostate glands. Large numbers of my patients have asked me about the Health Canada statement in the past weeks - Click on the link to read more about the Health Canada statement.. READ THE HEALTH CANADA STATEMENT. In order to understand the meaning of the Health Canada warning about finasteride and dutasteride, its important to have some background information. First, its important to know that there were TWO very large studies conducted a few years ago (one in 2003 and one ...

OBJECTIVE: To update the evidence-based recommendations for the prevention and management of hypertension in adults for 2009. OPTIONS AND OUTCOMES: For lifestyle and pharmacological interventions, evidence from randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews of trials was preferentially reviewed. Changes in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality were the primary outcomes of interest. However, for lifestyle interventions, blood pressure lowering was accepted as a primary outcome given the lack of long-term morbidity and mortality data in this field. Progression of kidney dysfunction was also accepted as a clinically relevant primary outcome among patients with chronic kidney disease. EVIDENCE: A Cochrane collaboration librarian conducted an independent MEDLINE search from 2007 to August 2008 to update the 2008 recommendations. To identify additional published studies, reference lists were reviewed and experts were contacted. All relevant articles were reviewed and appraised independently by both
We updated the evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis, assessment, prevention, and treatment of hypertension in adults for 2012. The new recommendations are: (1) use of home blood pressure monitoring to confirm a diagnosis of white coat syn

TORONTO - Primary-care doctors need to take a more active role in preventing young Canadians from starting smoking and helping those who have already taken up the habit to butt out for good, says a group of experts that develops clinical practice guidelines.. That recommendation is at the heart of the first-ever guidance on smoking in children and youth aged five to 18, developed by the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care.. "Rates of smoking have decreased over the last couple of decades, but they seem to have plateaued and theyre still much too high," said Dr. Brett Thombs, chairman of the four-member tobacco working group within the task force, which penned the guidelines released Monday.. "And among Canadian youth, by the time children and adolescents are in 12th grade, 36 per cent have tried smoking," said Thombs, a professor in the faculty of medicine at McGill University in Montreal. "And thats simply way too high given the massive burden of smoking on health (and) on our ...
For Medical Electrical Equipment product safety compliance in Canada, Health Canada currently recognizes both the second edition of IEC 60601-1, published in 1988, and the third edition, published in 2005. In October, 2008, Health Canada published a notice indicating that until June 1, 2012, conformity to the second edition of IEC 60601-1 and its related collateral and particular standards would be accepted. After June 1, 2012, conformity to the third edition would be required.. New editions of particular standards (specific to a particular device type and designated as IEC 60601-2-X) harmonized with the third edition of IEC 60601-1 have, in many cases, not yet been published, or have been published only recently, making a full transition to the entire family by the June 1, 2012 deadline impossible.. To address this, on March 22, Health Canada issued Additional Guidance on Transition from the Second to the Third Editions of the IEC 60601 Family of Standards on Health Canadas List of Recognized ...

Screening younger men and men at risk of prostate cancer can be beneficial in reducing metastatic cancer and deaths and should not be abandoned, states an article published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).. The United States Preventive Services Task Force, which last issued prostate screening guidelines in 2008, recently issued a draft recommendation against prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening for men of all ages. However, the American Cancer Society and the American Urological Association both recommend that men be given a choice about whether they should be screened. The United Kingdom and Australia take the approach of informed choice to enable patients to make their own decisions. The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care, which recommended against PSA screening in its last guidelines in 1994, is expected to issue updated recommendations in 2013.. Recent research from a large, high-quality randomized trial of 162 243 men in Europe aged 55 to 69 years indicates ...

TORONTO - Health Canada says it has approved a plan by GlaxoSmithKline to fix contamination problems it has been experiencing at its Ste. Foy, Que., flu vaccine production plant.The department says GSKs action plan and the timelines proposed in it are satisfactory.Inspections conducted this spring by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada identified problems at the facility largely related to bacterial contamination linked to the plants water purification system.While the precise nature of the problems has not been make public, the FDA issued GSK a warning letter, the last step before possible suspension of a licence to supply to the U.S. market.And Health Canadas inspection report identified seven so-called major observations, things classified as signs that production is not consistently hitting required standards.The company was given a month to respond to the Health Canada report and did so on July 31.We have completed the evaluation of GSKs action plan of its Ste.

A new study from the Université de Montréal shows an increase in prevalence of Canadian children diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and in the use of medications associated with ADHD in school-age children.. The study, Prevalence of Prescribed Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Medications and Diagnosis Among Canadian Preschoolers and School-Age Children: 1994-2007, was conducted by the doctoral student in sociology, Marie-Christine Brault, under the supervision of Professor à ric Lacourse of the Research Unit on Childrens Psychosocial Maladjustment (GRIP) at the Université de Montréal. It was published in the most recent issue of The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry.. Increased use of medications. In 2000, 43% of Canadian children with ADHD were taking medications, while in 2007, the number was 59%. The studys data comes from a sample of Canadian children aged 3 to 9 who participated in the National Longitudinal Survey on Children and Youth.. "The ...
My dealings with Health Canada over the years have strengthened my belief that Health Canada is not there to protect us. In every instance where I have been involved as a lawyer and Health Canada is seeking to take an NHP away, Health Canada has never taken into account the risk of removing the NHP from Canadians who may depend on it. In the court case I referred to earlier, I led evidence of deaths caused by Health Canada restricting access to a NHP. Despite warnings that restricting access to the NHP could lead to deaths, Health Canada never took into account the danger of removing the product. Health Canada was only concerned with enforcing the law, regardless of the law causing harm and death. I have never seen Health Canada do a balanced risk analysis (i.e. one that balances a risk posed by a product against the risk of removing the product) to ensure that the safest course of action is taken. Health Canada is only concerned with strict compliance with the law, even if strict compliance ...
Osteoporotic fractures can be a major cause of morbidity. It is important to determine the impact of fractures on health-related quality of life (HRQL). A total of 3,394 women and 1,122 men 50 years of age and older, who were recruited for the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study (CaMos), participated in this cross-sectional study. Minimal trauma fractures of the hip, pelvis, spine, lower body (included upper and lower leg, knee, ankle, and foot), upper body (included arm, elbow, sternum, shoulder, and clavicle), wrist and hand (included forearm, hand, and finger), and ribs were studied. Participants with subclinical vertebral deformities were also examined. The Health Utilities Index Mark II and III Systems were used to assess HRQL. Past osteoporotic fractures varied in prevalence from 1.2% (pelvis) to 27.8% (lower body) in women and 0.3% (pelvis) to 29.3% (wrist) in men. Multivariate linear regression analyses [parameter estimates and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CI)] indicated ...

In medicine, breast imaging is the representation or reproduction of a breasts form. There are various methods of breast imaging. Mammography is the process of using low-energy X-rays (usually around 30 kVp) to examine the human breast, which is used as a diagnostic and screening tool. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses and/or microcalcifications. For the average woman, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended (2009) mammography every two years in women between the ages of 50 and 74. The American College of Radiology and American Cancer Society recommend yearly screening mammography starting at age 40. The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (2012) and the European Cancer Observatory (2011) recommends mammography every 2-3 years between 50 and 69. These task force reports point out that in addition to unnecessary surgery and anxiety, the risks of more frequent mammograms include a small but ...
Nausea, vomiting. Risk Factors Family History of Colon Cancer or polyps About 10% of the population has a first degree relative with colon or rectal cancer.. First and second degree relatives (children, siblings, grandchildren, nieces, nephews) of a person with a history of colon cancer are more likely to develop CRC themselves, especially if their relative had the cancer at a young age. If several close relatives have a history of colon cancer, there is an increased risk. In view of this increased risk, both the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) and the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC) recommend screening as of the age 40 for these high-risk individuals or ten years earlier than the youngest age of colorectal cancer diagnosis for any affected relative.. Genetic Alterations. Changes in certain genes increase your risk of colon cancer. Hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC or Lynch Syndrome) is the most common type of inherited colon cancer, accounting for ...

Only half of all nurses hired to work in remote First Nations communities stay on the job, Health Canada officials told a House of Commons committee Monday.. "Our turnover rate is very high," said Robin Bulkman, executive director of primary care in the departments First Nations and Inuit health branch, speaking to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts. "We recruit ten nurses and we lose five so its very difficult.". Auditor General Micheal Ferguson skewered the departments management of nursing stations on reserves in his spring report this past April. Among the audits findings, Ferguson discovered incidences of under-qualified nurses performing x-rays and stations with broken septic systems.. The audit examined 45 communities in Manitoba and Ontario, representing 64 per cent of the 85 nursing stations under Health Canadas wing. Nationally, there are around 400 nurses serving approximately 95,000 First Nations under the program.. On Monday, Ferguson spoke alongside Health Canada ...

Health Canada has recently approved EMD Seronos disease modifying therapy, Mavenclad™ (oral cladribine). Mavenclad™ selectively targets and accumulates in certain types of white blood cells (lymphocytes), such as disease-causing T cells. By interfering with a target cells ability to process DNA, the therapy leads to the depletion of disease-causing lymphocytes and results in reduced inflammation. Mavenclad™ was previously approved by Health Canada in an injectable form for the treatment of hairy cell leukemia. Mavenclad™ is the only second-line, short-course oral treatment indicated for MS that does not cause continuous immunosuppression. Approval of Mavenclad™ by Health Canada is based on results from the phase III clinical trial called CLARITY. The trial tested the safety and efficacy of Mavenclad™ in 1,326 participants living with relapsing remitting MS (RRMS) by comparing two doses of Mavenclad™ (3.5 mg/kg, and 5.25 mg/kg) against dummy treatment (placebo). The study followed ...

It is recognized that the trabecular bone score (TBS) provides skeletal information, and frailty measurement is significantly associated with increased risks of adverse health outcomes. Given the suboptimal predictive power in fracture risk assessment tools, we aimed to evaluate the combination of frailty and TBS regarding predictive accuracy for risk of major osteoporotic fracture (MOF). Data from the prospective longitudinal study of CaMos (Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study) were used for this study. TBS values were estimated using lumbar spine (L1 to L4 ) dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) images; frailty was evaluated by a frailty index (FI) of deficit accumulation. Outcome was time to first incident MOF during the follow-up. We used the Harrells C-index to compare the model predictive accuracy. The Akaike information criterion, likelihood ratio test, and net reclassification improvement (NRI) were used to compare model performances between the model combining frailty and TBS ...

Vice Governor Agnes Magpale rebuked the provincial governments critics who claimed that Governor Hilario Davide III has done nothing under his administration.. In last weeks visit to Catmon town for the distribution of cash incentive to barangay health workers, Magpale said Davide poured in a lot of projects in the province but he did it without much fuss and whir of a rolling camera.. "Kaning panerbisyo ni Gov. Junjun (Davide) kinasingkasing gyud ni. Motrabaho lang gyud ni siyag hilom na way daghang kisaw," she said.. Despite the relentless attacks, Davide who is known for being a level headed person, refused to sling back mud to his critics, but instead put his attention in informing the people directly about the ongoing livelihood programs and infrastructure projects of the Capitol, said Magpale.. Magpale cited Catmon town, which had 40 new classrooms built from Capitol funds, as one of the proofs that officials of the provincial government are not sleeping at the wheel.. "Usa lang ni sa ...

Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with MS every day and women are three times more likely than men to be diagnosed with MS. Sinclair knows first-hand the impact that MS has-her mother, Sandi, who was also her childhood soccer coach, ...
Writer Mary-Louise Leidl explores the topic of women and migraines, including migraine triggers, effects on health and the complementary medical treatments available. She interviews two women working at CWHN about their experiences and three healthcare practitioners about their approaches to managing migraines.. Jane Shulman, a Montreal-based journalist and webinar producer at CWHN, was only 11 years old when she experienced her first migraine: "It was terrifying. My mother and I ended up in the emergency room because we didnt know what was wrong ... I was in so much pain all of a sudden and there was no reason for it." Fortunately, the doctor on call was able to diagnose the sudden onset of symptoms as migraine, an affliction that plagues more than 2.7 million Canadians according to a Statistics Canada 2010/2011 Canadian Community Health Survey. The diagnosis, however, has not made it any easier for Shulman, and others like her, to manage this debilitating condition that is three times more ...
Results-We enrolled 365 patients with IS and 32 with TIA. α-galactosidase-A sequencing identified a single carrier of a genetic variant of unknown significance (p.R118C) and no well-recognized pathogenic variants.

National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score at presentation and diabetes mellitus predicted 6-month modified Rankin Scale. Thirteen patients experienced 5 recurrent IS and 9 TIA during follow-up. No patient died. Most patients (98.7%) returned home. Among previous workers, 43% had residual working limitations. ...
Downloadable! A vast literature has examined the impact of family income on the health and development outcomes of children. One channel through which increased income may operate is an improvement in a familys ability to provide food, shelter, clothing, books, and other expenditure-related inputs to a childs development. In addition to this channel, many scholars have investigated the relationship between income and the psychological wellbeing of the family. By reducing stress and conflict, more income helps to foster an environment more conducive to healthy child development. In this paper, we exploit changes in child benefits in Canada to study these questions. Importantly, our approach allows us to make stronger causal inferences than has been possible with the existing, mostly correlational, evidence. Using variation in child benefits across province, time, and family type, we study outcomes spanning test scores, mental health, physical health, and deprivation measures. The findings suggest that

Montreal, January 24, 2014 - From November 25 to December 5 2013, Health Canada conducted its annual inspection of the Montreal facility as well as the Centre Laval GLOBULE Blood Donor Centre, following which their establishment licences were renewed.. One observation for the Centre Laval GLOBULE Blood Donor Centre and nine observations for the Montreal facility without a major impact on product safety were issued by the inspectors. Corrective measures have already been taken or will be taken shortly.. These results reflect once again that Héma-Québec meet the strictest standards and security measures and demonstrates that blood product, stem cells and human tissues safety is a constant priority.. Health Canada audits are designed to ensure compliance with safety measures and with the requirements stipulated in its operating licence. Inspections are conducted every year at Héma-Québecs Montréal and Québec facilities, and the GLOBULE Blood Donor Centres are closely examined every two years. ...
The vaginal microbiota is important in womens reproductive and overall health. However, the relationships between the structure, function and dynamics of this complex microbial community and health outcomes remain elusive. The objective of this study was to determine the phylogenetic range and abundance of prokaryotes in the vaginal microbiota of healthy, non-pregnant, ethnically diverse, reproductive-aged Canadian women. Socio-demographic, behavioural and clinical data were collected and vaginal swabs were analyzed from 310 women. Detailed profiles of their vaginal microbiomes were generated by pyrosequencing of the chaperonin-60 universal target. Six community state types (CST) were delineated by hierarchical clustering, including three Lactobacillus-dominated CST (L. crispatus, L. iners, L. jensenii), two Gardnerella-dominated (subgroups A and C) and an "intermediate" CST which included a small number of women with microbiomes dominated by seven other species or with no dominant species but ...
Representative image of multiple arterial revascularization). A Canadian study [1] published in JAMA Cardiology has shown lower long term mortality, repeat revascularization, myocardial infarction and heart failure in patients receiving multiple arterial grafts as compared to those single LIMA (left internal mammary artery) graft along with SVG (saphenous vein grafts). Of over twenty thousand patients with triple vessel or left main disease who underwent CABG (coronary artery bypass graft), about 5600 received multiple arterial grafts and around 14500 received LIMA graft along with SVG. Subgroup analyses showed that the benefits were consistent in those with diabetes mellitus, obesity, moderate left ventricular systolic dysfunction, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), peripheral arterial disease and kidney disease. Additional benefit of multiple arterial grafting could not be demonstrated in the subgroup with severe left ventricular dysfunction. Median follow up period was 9.1 years, ...

It arrived sooner and hit harder, but this years strain of influenza isnt anything out of the ordinary, experts say. A/Fujian influenza, a mutation of last years Panama strain, is regarded as more virulent and accounted for more than 90% of reported flu cases in December, states Health Canada. This is the most severe flu season in 4 years, acknowledges Dr. Theresa Tam, chief of respiratory disease at the Centre for Infectious Disease Control and Prevention. A new flu strain typically affects younger and older people, she adds.. At the end of 2003, Health Canada had confirmed 2 deaths in children with confirmed influenza A infection, and 2 other suspected deaths. Typically, up to 4 Canadian children die of influenza-related illness annually. On average, 500-1500 deaths per year are reported in Canada due to influenza or influenza-related pneumonia. Given reports of fatalities among children in British Columbia and the vulnerability of the pediatric population to the new flu strain, Tam ...

Foreword. Which province best serves the Canadian healthcare consumer?. It is a pleasure to present the inaugural Canada Health Consumer Index (CHCI), which for the first time will allow Canadians to assess the consumer responsiveness of their provinces healthcare system against the rest of the country. This consumer-oriented approach uses well-proven benchmarking and evaluation methodology from the Health Consumer Powerhouse, Europes leading independent provider of consumer information, whose work has triggered much discussion, analysis and, ultimately, improvement in healthcare systems in Europe.. The first Euro-Canada Health Care Index, launched in January 2008, brought Canada into a comparison of 30 European countries. This groundbreaking benchmark showed that Canadians rely upon a system that is sclerotic, inefficient and remarkably stingy when it comes to providing excellent, timely care. Such an assessment provokes debate and provides policy makers with insights they can use to initiate ...

The Berman Jewish DataBanks holdings on Canada include recently released reports on the Canadian Jewish population, based on the 2011 Canadian National Household Survey (NHS). The NHS is the successor to earlier Canadian census-based reports, including reports on the Canadian Jewish population from the 2001 Canadian Census and the 1971 Canadian Census.. The 2011 NHS, like the Canadian Censuses before it, included questions on religion and ethnicity that allowed for a relatively precise estimation of the size of the Jewish population in Canada and analyses of its demographic characteristics. The 2011 NHS did not include data on Jewish connections, behaviors, attitudes, etc., as was true of past Canadian Censuses. The 2011 report series on the Jewish population of Canada includes a national report focusing on all Jewish persons living in Canada, as well as reports on 11 Jewish geographic communities in Canada,. For the country as a whole and for the larger Jewish communities, multiple reports are ...

One thing Americans and Canadians can agree on is that we dont want each others health care systems. In truth, most Americans dont know how Canadas system works and Canadians dont know much about the U.S. system.. What Americans know has come mainly from the negative talking points of politicians and others who have argued for years against national health insurance. Two decades ago The New York Times reported that Canadian women had to wait for Pap smears, a point vigorously refuted by the Canadian ambassador who shot back in a letter to the Times editor: "You, and Americans generally, are free to decide whatever health care system to choose, avoid or adapt, but the choice is not assisted by opinions unrelated to fact.". Yes, there are waiting lists for some services - as I will explain in another post - but, no, Canadians are not coming across the border in droves to get American care.. Theres misinformation among Canadians, too. Wherever I went, Canadians told me they thought, mostly ...

Timothy (Phleum pratense L.) is harvested twice annually in Canada but with projected climate change, an additional harvest may be possible. Our objective was to evaluate the impact on timothy dry matter (DM) yield and key nutritive value attributes of shifting from a two- to a three-harvest system under projected future climate conditions at 10 sites across Canada. Future climate scenarios were generated with a stochastic weather generator (AAFC-WG) using two global climate models under the forcing of two Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change emission scenarios and, then, used by the CATIMO (Canadian Timothy Model) grass model to simulate DM yield and key nutritive value attributes. Under future climate scenarios (2040-2069), the additional harvest and the resulting three-harvest system are expected to increase annual DM yield (+0.46 to +2.47 Mg DM ha−1) compared with a two-harvest system across Canada but the yield increment will on average be greater in eastern Canada (1.88 Mg DM ...
