The decision to recommend ban or withdrawl of a drug to the regulatory authorities of different countries is normally based on the risk assessment process, which is influenced by a number of factors such as disease pattern in a country, indications and dosages of the drug permitted, varying reactions of certain ethnic groups in a given population, availability of safer substitutes and overall safety profile of the drug. These conditions are different for different countries.
It is for this reason that a drug banned / restricted in one country may continue to be marketed in other countries. There is a well laid out mechanism in India to review the status of the drug formulations as and when any serious adverse event is reported in the International journals, WDA Newsletters or when a drug formulation is reported to have been banned / withdrawn in some countries. The use of the drug, so reported, is assessed in consultation with the expert committees set up for the purpose, based on available technical information, benefit-risk ratio, local needs and availability of safer alternatives etc.
