On May 25, 2005, The Marketed Health Products Directorate launched the Canadian Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Program (CADRMP) Online Query and Data Extract. This new on-line database provides the public with information concerning suspected adverse reactions, occurring in Canada in association with marketed health products, which have been reported to Health Canada. A total of approximately 170,000 records dating back to 1965 will be available.
The on-line database is searchable by the following criteria: Health Product Name or Active Ingredient, Date Received at the Marketed Health Products Directorate (MHPD), Health Product Involvement, Patient Age, Patient Gender, and/or Outcome of the Report. Any information related to patient or reporter identity will be kept confidential as per Section 19(1) of the Access to Information Act.
This system also permits downloading of standard text files for importation into existing databases or information systems if desired.
Extracts of the CADRMP data called 'line listings' have been available on request for many years. Health Canada is pro-actively making these data available in order to enhance transparency and as a more efficient means of meeting demand for this form of drug safety information.
The CADRMP Online Query and Data Extracts is available by visiting:
