AusPharm news

Mifepristone and misoprostol : 08/07/2013 :

AusPharm learned some time ago that allowing discussion on AusPharmList on the ethics / morality surrounding the use of drugs used to induce 'medical abortions' was fraught with danger.

People on all sides of the issue often hold very firm views and we take the view that discussion on such issues is best conducted on fora other than AusPharmList.

Of course, the insufficient improvement in Labor's vote since May (21% --> 28%) may simply reflect the fact that 'listers are, in the main, coalition voters.

RGH E‑Bulletin: Adherence with long-term anticoagulation in non-valvular AF : 01/07/2013 :

The topic of this week's RGH E‑Bulletin is Adherence with long-term anticoagulation in non-valvular AF.

"Drug adherence is a principal concern in the management of many cardiac conditions. The achievement of good medication adherence is required in the context of the long-term anticoagulation that is required to prevent cardio-embolic complications in the setting of non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Achieving optimal adherence is an issue that is relevant to the use of all oral anticoagulant agents that currently available, including warfarin and the newer oral anticoagulants (NOACs) - dabigatran, rivaroxaban and apixaban. It is of interest to note that across studies comparing warfarin and NOACs, discontinuation rates for each treatment were of the same order.  For example, in the open-label RE-LY study the discontinuation rate was 21% for the dabigatran group and 17% for the warfarin group. "
