Breast implants manufactured by PIP should be removed as a preventative measure (recommendation)
The Medical Products Agency and the National Board of Health and Welfare change the previous recommendation regarding silicone breast implants manufactured by Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) as a result of the changed state of knowledge.




Checklist for Swedish product information
For the submission of Swedish product information (SmPC, Package Leaflet and Labelling) the MPA has developed a Checklist to support the Applicant.




Information on Single assessment and Worksharing for periodic safety update reporting
Updated information on the EURD list and worksharing is available on the MPA website.




MPA's contributes to a positive change in the use of medicines for children
Children have a right to safe and effective use of well-documented medicines. Efforts are made both on international and national levels to increase the development of medicines for children, but these changes take time. In 2011 the MPA was assigned a government commission as a part of the National Pharmaceutical Strategy, "Expand the knowledge of paediatric medicines and their use".




New Legal Framework for Medicines in Sweden
As of 1 January 2016, Sweden has a new legal framework for medicines. The new laws and regulations do not incur any significant changes other than structure and wording.




New guideline for labelling and package leaflets of medicinal products
The MPA has updated the common guideline for the labelling and package leaflets for medicinal products. The guideline provides explanations and examples of how the current regulations should be interpreted. The purpose of the regulations is to ensure that patients receive clear and relevant information, and reduce the risk of confusion and misuse.




New revision of the template for Risk Management Plan
On the 30th of March 2017, EMA published the second revision of the RMP template, which marketing authorisation holders and applicants can use for all RMP submission as of 31 March 2017. The second revision becomes mandatory for all RMP submissions as of 31 March 2018.




PIP implants should be removed for preventative reasons
Breast implants manufactured by Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) have a poorer mechanical durability and, in a number of cases, contain an irritant substance in significantly higher levels than other silicone breast implants. The Medical Products Agency and the National Board of Health and Welfare therefore recommend that clinics that have, in the past, used PIP implants inform the women affected of these risks and also that PIP implants should be removed for preventative reasons, except in individual cases where there are medical reasons for not doing so.




Paracetamol tablets only available in pharmacies

Sweden when the snow covered the ground before the apples were picked from the trees. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2013 v7n2 p0808

I visited Sweden in 1990, 1993, twice, and 1994. What brought me there, in the summer of 1990, was a histological technique that was used in a lab at the Sweriges Lantbruk Universitet that was testimony to the constancy of a Swedish scientist, Yvonne Ridderstrale.

Dr Ridderstrale had set up her lab around a technique for measuring carbon dioxide movement on thin slices of tissues. You can grind up tissues all you want and measure carbon dioxide movement in parts from all over the body - which I did - but until you can see what is happening, and where, you really are only guessing.

I saw Dr Ridderstrale's beautiful pictures for the first time during a conference in Manhattan, and then again in London at a conference I helped organize 5 years later when I was 7 months pregnant. The next conference, in Spoleto, in Italy, which I attended with my baby and my husband: that was when I decided I needed to go to Sweden and hang out in Dr Ridderstrale's lab for some weeks or months.

In 1990, I helped organize the scientific program of a conference in Hannover, Germany, drove my 3 sons and a babysitter to the airport in New York City, and spent the summer hopping around the United States and Europe. My sons and husband were in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, the most beautiful area of Germany, where my husband worked as a physicist and in his spare time, marathon skied and cycled, and invented scores of devices and techniques. His brilliant formula for predicting the stock market, well, that is another story. It didn't work.

I flew to Sweden and spent a week with Dr Ridderstrale in early August. Out of the lab, saunas, swims naked in lakes. Oh! I was pregnant, but a vigorous bicycle ride with my 3 sons up, up a mountain in Germany ended that dramatically in the flight home to New York.

However, in Sweden, we laid the groundwork for my return, and in 1992, the day after Bill Clinton was elected president, I heard from Sweden that the government had granted me some tens of thousands of dollars to return to Sweden to work with Dr Ridderstrale on diabetic cows.

We had fun, I worked hard, I gave lectures on carbon dioxide, I traveled by ferry to Finland and back overland by ice that looked like it was on fire.

I had returned to Sweden the day after my birthday in early October, when the snow was 2 feet deep and the apples were still on the trees.

I had conceived not long before I got on the train for the 24-h train ride to Sweden, and in Sweden Dr Ridderstrale made me get a pregnancy test, and for fun, got me an ultrasound in the animal radiology department.

My daughter was born the following July, in New Jersey, after visits from several members of the Swedish physiology department.

Not long after that, the huge strains of being a single parent to 4 children with my husband in Germany and my ex-husband taking me to court once or twice a year while holding me hostage in the United States: I left the laboratory, swallowed whole every book on grammar that I could find, broke up with my husband, and re-invented myself as a medical writer.

Sweden always was kind to me, always believed in me. A good country. A blessed country. But damned cold.
