Dear Commission on Human Medicines,

The CHM's responsibilities include advising the UK government ministers on matters relating to regulation of human medicinal products, giving advice in relation to the safety, quality and efficacy of human medicinal products, and promoting the collection and investigation of information relating to adverse reactions for human medicines.

1. I would like to receive information relating to the most recent investigation into the use of the drug Roaccutane in the UK. What recommendations were made and what changes were made as a result?
2. The number of people currently using Roaccutane in the UK, and how many of them presented a case of severe acne ?
3. The number of people who experienced adverse reactions to Roaccutane in the past year? (2014/2015)
4. What is the current status of the license of Roaccutane in the UK, and how often is it reviewed? And who are the main manufacturers supplying Roaccutane in the UK?

Compliance with the request to provide this information should not exceed the appropriate costs limit of £450 under section 12 of the Freedom of information Act
2000.

I would prefer to receive this information electronically. If you
need any clarification then please contact me at the
email specified.

Under your section 16 duty to provide advice and assistance I would
expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in
any way.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have
received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you in
the near future.

Yours faithfully,

Elisabeth
