Annotated Health Canada product monographs now available on PharmGKB

PharmGKB now has annotated drug labels (referred to as product monographs) available from Health Canada/Santé Canada (HCSC).

PDF copies of the product monographs were sourced from HCSC's Drug Product Database (DPD). As with the annotated U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), European Medicines Agency (EMA) and Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency, Japan (PMDA) drug labels, HCSC monographs are given a PGx level of evidence, and a PDF copy of the product monograph with PGx information highlighted is available for each annotated monograph.


HCSC product monographs were selected for examination for PGx information based on the FDA's Table of Pharmacogenomic Biomarkers in Drug Labeling, as well as any EMA labels with PGx information that PharmGKB has curated.


It is possible that there are other HCSC product monographs that contain PGx information, and PharmGKB welcomes any feedback regarding PGx information within HCSC product monographs or labels from other medicine agencies around the world.
