[Background] Japanese Pharmaceutical Affairs Act is expected to be revised in June 2009. Under this revision, a new regulatory classification of drugs is enforced and drugs classified into a new category "class I" are sold only by hand of Pharmacist. Such a social context creates challenges for pharmaceutical intervention into OTC drug sales... The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
