SANCHEZ GONZALEZ, Celeste Aurora. Publications of the Drug Regulatorty Authority and their impact. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2012, vol.46, n.2, pp.141-149. ISSN 0034-7515.

The Center for the State Control of Drug Quality (CECMED in Spanish) is undergoing a process of changes after 22 years of its inception. This process will broaden the scope of its regulatory and control activity, so it is important to keep and disseminate the history of this agency as the National Regulatory Authority of Drugs. To this end, a research study to retrieve and gather those articles and books reflecting different work stages of CECMED and their regulatory impact was conducted. One book and a large number of articles, published and accepted for publication in national and foreign journals with ISSN from 1989 to 2011, were included. They explicitly dealt with subjects related to Cuban regulation for drugs and diagnostic means. The compilation amounted to 171 articles in Cuban and foreign journals and one book. Anuario Científico del CECMED with over 100 articles was the most used journal, followed by Revista Cubana de Farmacia and Boletín InfoCECMED, with almost 20 articles. It was concluded that these publications on the CEDMED work are part of the public image of the institution, show its historical development, provide evidence about the effects derived from the fulfillment of its functions, and contribute to disseminate its participation and achievements as well as preserve the working history of this agency.

Palabras clave : drug and diagnostic means regulation; publications about Cuban Drug Regulatory Authority; regulatory impact of CECMED.
