Health Canada approves cold and flu medicine

ditional?are not based on scientific evidence and products in the "monograph" category have claims which are not supported by specific research on their particular product.

“There’s no cure for the common cold,?Dr. Shan stated. “So, in medicine the traditional strategy is if you can’t treat the disease, you treat the symptoms. The COLD-fX strategy is to boost your immune system to help you avoid getting a cold or the flu in the first place, or if you do get one, to fight it more effectively."

The NHPD’s safety review confirmed the safety profile of COLD-fX with no known side effects or drug interactions for generally healthy individuals.

Health Canada established new regulations effective Jan. 1, 2004, to monitor and manage the NHP industry. CV Technologies was the first company in Canada to launch and complete a trial under the new regulations. These regulations are being phased in over a six-year period as the NHPD reviews supporting safety, efficacy and quality information for all natural health products.

Although there are grey areas between the definitions of drugs and natural health products in general, the major distinction is that natural health products are derived from natural sources. Natural health products require the same degree of scientific evidence as drugs to support their claims. Natural health product regulations are also similar to drug regulations with requirements for standardized labeling, good manufacturing practices, and specification requirements for finished products and post-market surveillance for potential adverse effects.
