The Patented Medicine Prices Review Board (PMPRB) has released its fourth edition CompassRX report, Annual Public Drug Plan Expenditure Report for 2016/17. The report was prepared as part of the National Prescription Drug Utilisation Information System (NPDUIS) and examines public drug plan expenditures in Canada, including analysing the main factors that drive annual changes in prescription drug expenditures.
The PMPRB has also released the 2017 Supplement to the Market Intelligence Report, Biologic Response Modifier Agents 2015, both produced under the NPDUIS initiative. Using data from 2017, the supplement provides updated information for market trends analysed in the original report, which focuses on certain biologics that the report refers to as "biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs or biologic DMARDs".
Lastly, the PMPRB has released its 2017 Annual Report. The report includes a review of the PMPRB's regulatory activities, analyses of sales and price trends of pharmaceuticals, as well as an overview of NPDUIS and analysis of R&D expenditures. On 22 August 2018, the minister of health filed the report with the clerks of the House of Commons and the Senate.
