You know all those little scraps of paper in the medication boxes nobody ever reads? - that's what I meant.

I would appreciate any hints / URLs for the subject. Of course the best would be euroterm / polylingual sources.

those are "PIL"s Mar 24, 2007

no, not pills -

PILs. Patient Information Leaflets. Here are a few to browse:

http://xpil.medicines.org.uk/BrowsePils.aspx

But you can do a search on most any pharma site and you'll find others.

No I haven't found a multilingual compendium yet. Hope someone in this thread does.


There's also a more technical version for medical professionals to read called the SPC (summary of product characteristics)

http://www.edqm.org

http://www.emea.eu.int/

The latter one contains so called templates, available in all official EU languages, including Slovenian (I suppose that's what you were looking for).

Unfortunately I don't have a link for all the docs right away. You will have to search for yourself (a bit tedious).

If you are looking for the QRD template... Mar 24, 2007

The package leaflet is Annex III, letter B, of the pdf document which can be found (in English) at the following address:
http://www.emea.eu.int/htms/human/qrd/qrdplt/QRD%20template.pdf

You also have the annotated version at the following address:
http://www.emea.eu.int/htms/human/qrd/qrdplt/Annotated%20QRD%20template%20with%20QRD%20notes.pdf

And for various languages:

TOPIC STARTER
EMEA, PIL, QRD .... it's all coming back Mar 24, 2007

The package leaflet is Annex III, letter B, of the pdf document which can be found (in English) at the following ... etc


The URLs (at emea for instance) are EXactly what I was looking for (what I actually lost some time ago). I really appreciate, thanks. My (limited) experience in the field can be summarized as follows:

i) rigid rules (i.e. repeating segments at probably 75%) ...
ii) ... intermixed with meta fields

iow a lot of repeats and some real stuff...

I have a TM with app 2000 segments, with half of them probably useless (my learning curve in pharmaceuticals, Id say) , but even thousand is probably more than strictly necessary - of course they have to be the right segments, and that's my problem right now. But with URLs I have a way to check them out.

Now ... if there's anybody doing it on a substantial / industrial scale, I would appreciate any practical information I should factor in before jumping into this pool.

TiA for (more) help

Vito

should be right next door to medicinal stuff... Mar 25, 2007

some similar useful links, but regarding veterinary drugs.


Bog, Ljerka:

you can start digging here:

http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/pharmaceuticals/eudralex/homev4.htm

One more address would be eurolex, and then follow the trail of directives, pertaining to the subject - I dont know them, but you need just the year and the seq. number to find them (like 2005/78/EC)

http://eur-lex.europa.eu/sl/index.htm

on second thought... Mar 25, 2007

Now that I think about it, we've actually gone through general EUP and Emea documentation quite thoroughly. What I'd really like though is some links to PIL veterinary drug references. Now because "patients" are animals, I guess it will be Veterinarian Information Leaflets

Appreciate it...

another link re vet drugs Mar 26, 2007

Hello Ljerka,

I have this link in my bookmarks and hope you'll find it helpful. It concerns:
"The Community Code Relating to Veterinary Medicinal Products".
There is a section about requirements for "Labelling and Package Leaflets (PL)".
Best Regards,
Diantha
