Shan, who is also president, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of CV Technologies added, “There are two novel therapeutic aspects to COLD-fX. First, COLD-fX is one of the very few medicines ?drugs or natural health products ?that Health Canada has approved for daily use as a preventative medicine. Second, COLD-fX can be taken to provide symptom relief for colds and flu."

Shan added that Health Canada reviewed all of CV Technologies published and unpublished data on COLD-fx before approving the claims.

The NHPD issues product licenses in several categories. Because COLD-fX® is a unique patented product, it was issued an NPN in the non-traditional category, which requires the highest level of scientific evidence. In contrast, claims with the term “tra
