E-drug: 2010 Prescrire Awards
-----------------------------

Dear Colleagues,

On 27 January 2011, Prescrire presented the 2010 Prescrire Awards at the annual 
"Pilule d'Or" ("Golden Pill") ceremony in Paris. Prescrire's Drugs, Information 
and Packaging Awards were presented, followed by a debate on the theme of 
"Comparisons enable better treatment - evaluating therapeutic advances in 
patients' best interests".

This year Prescrire's top honour, the "Pilule d'Or" ("Golden Pill") was not 
awarded, but 3 drugs were singled out for recognition. There was no Packaging 
Award, but 4 "Yellow Cards" and 9 "Red Cards" were handed out to medicines for 
packaging that was judged substandard or dangerous.
Seven pharmaceutical companies were honoured for the information provided to 
Prescrire's Editorial Staff.

A debate on the theme of therapeutic progress featured a lively exchange of 
ideas, all in the name of improving the quality of patient care
