Tan: Protocol says marketing surveillance should’ve been done for new drug like Dengvaxia

Feb 13, 2018 @ 16:36

Quezon 4th District Representative Angelina Tan said marketing surveillance should have been conducted on the controversial Dengvaxia dengue vaccine since it is a new drug.

The Quezon politiko made the remark after the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) said at least three deaths were connected to Dengvaxia.

“Yun din ang naging basehan kaya tinatanong din ng mga House Members, should it be enough para i-refund ang pera na binayad sa Dengvaxia?” Tan asked.

She said marketing surveillance of a new drug is basic protocol.

“Hindi lang deaths kundi lahat ng pwedeng mangyari sa isang pasyente dinu-dokumento. Katulad nitong Dengvaxia, may nakikita na tayong deaths. Katulad ng sabi ni Chairman Pimentel, pwede natin talagang sabihin failed talaga ung sa dengue immunization program, though ang argument nila palagi, there is no such vaccine na may 100% protection,” Tan said.#
