Australian Medicines Terminology Browser

This is a simple interface for the Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT).

Enter your search words in the text box above. If you can't see the search text box in the top right hand corner, try here. You may constrain your search from the pull-down selection menu to find the type of medication in a particular category. Healthbase will return a list of matches. From here you can click on the desired result for further details of the medication entry. A '%' may be used as a wild card to match any combination of 0 or more characters. Thus, for example entering %glucos will return any entry in the terminology containing the word fragment glucos, within the constraint imposed by the pull down list.

Containered Trade Product Pack A Containered Trade Product Pack is a medication artefact that holds real medications within some specific container inside the external packaging. Examples of containers are blister packs, bottles, etc. Trade Product Pack A Trade Product Pack (TPP) is a representation of a packaged product. A each TPP will have a pack size, usually expressed in terms of the number of individual Trade Product Unit of Uses. e.g. Aspirin (Bayer) 300mg tablet, 20. Trade Product Pack names normally commence with a capital letter. Trade Product Group A Trade Product Group is used to link Trade Product names that share a common root. For example, the Trade Product Group Nurofen is an umbrella label for both Nurofen and Nurofen Plus. As such, Trade Products with non-identical active ingredients can be grouped. Trade Product A Trade Product represents the product brand name or the grouping of products into a 'family', for either single component products that contain the same active ingredients; or components of multicomponent products which contain the same combination of active ingredients. Trade Product names normally commence with a capital letter. Trade Product Unit of Use A Trade Product Unit of Use is a single dose unit of a specific dose form (unless the dose form is continuous, such as liquid or cream), that contains a specified amount of an active ingredient and is grouped within a particular Trade Product family. Medicinal Product Pack A Medicinal Product Pack (MPP) is a representation of an abstract packaged product. A each MPP will have a pack size, usually expressed in terms of the number of individual Medicinal Product Unit of Uses. e.g. aspirin 300mg tablet, 20. Medicinal Product Pack names normally appear in lower case. Medicinal Product A Medicinal Product is the abstract representation of the active ingredient(s) of substance(s), devoid of strength and form, which when formulated, is intended for use in the treatment of a patient. As such, a Medicinal Product represents a specification for a purpose, rather than the representation of any physical manufactured product. Medicinal Product names normally are in lower case. Medicinal Product Unit of Use A Medicinal Product Unit of Use is an abstract representation of the properties of one or more clinically equivalent Trade Product Unit of Uses. Clincally equivalent means having the same base active ingredients (or same specific active ingredients where the salt is therapeutically necessary), as well as the same strength, dose form, and administrable unit type, and where the corresponding TPUUs are considere clinically equivalent.
