SOGC Update on Propylthiouracil (PTU) Shortage

The SOGC has been working with Health Canada to address the stock-out of PTU recently and we are pleased to confirm that the situation has been resolved. Thank you to Drs. Venu Jain and Denice Feig, who assisted in the consultations with Health Canada, the SOGC and other stakeholders.

We are working together to find a solution to reduce the risk of experiencing such critical shortages of medications that are essential to obstetric practice.

Dr. Jennifer Blake and Dr. Dario Garcia
