Consultation on a proposed Pathogens of Interest List

Open on April 17, 2018 and will close to new input on July 1, 2018. Document

Antimicrobial resistant (AMR) infections are becoming more frequent and increasingly difficult to treat. As a result, AMR is now recognized as a growing public health threat in Canada and around the world. In order to combat this threat Health Canada proposes to use a Pathogens of Interest List, which would serve two purposes:

Inform sponsors of the bacterial pathogens in most urgent need of innovative therapeutic drugs and/or devices in Canada; and Guide the development of new tools and policy approaches by Health Canada. You are invited to review the proposed Pathogens of Interest List and provide written comments.

List: Acinetobacter baumanii
Campylobacter spp.
Clostridium difficile
Enterococcus faecium
Haemophilus influenza
Helicobacter pylori
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) complex
Neisseria gonorrhea
Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Salmonella spp.
Shigella spp.
Staphylococcus aureus
