ABS-CBN's talent management arm Star Magic did a drug test on 40 of its artists over the weekend amid the government's campaign against illegal drugs.
In a statement sent to ABS-CBN News on Monday, Star Magic said it conducted "a supervised and voluntary drug test" last Saturday "to belay rumors of drug use in its community."
"Results were 100% negative for Jake Cuenca, Enrique Gil and Diego Loyzaga and the rest of the Star Magic artists. Star Magic believes in the efforts of the current campaign to keep our homes and working environments drug-free," the statement read.
The statement did not include the names of the 37 other artists who took the drug test.
There have been several calls to conduct drug tests in the entertainment industry.
Last week, "Till I Met You" star James Reid said he is willing to undergo a drug test, adding that there is nothing wrong with the current campaign against illegal drugs.
However, Robin Padilla urged caution when naming suspected drug users in showbiz.
