Saskatchewan approves Enbrel, Humira for AS

Amazing what a change of government does. Saskatchewan's provincial drug plan now covers Enbrel and Humira for ankylosing spondylitis under Exception Drug Status coverage.

Update: CBC News coverage. Remicade wasn't approved because it costs more.

Previously: More about Saskatchewan's TNF coverage; Saskatchewan to AS patients: No biologics for you!

Noted without comment -- I'm presently working on contract at Health Canada.
