Pharmacovigilance Industry Background

Pharmacovigilance is a major segment of an effective drug regulation system for evaluating and monitoring adverse drug reactions (ADRs). As per CDC, ADRs account for over 100,000 deaths per annum and are amongst the top ten foremost causes of death in the U.S. Currently, the global network of pharmacovigilance centers, coordinated by Uppsala Monitoring Centre, are working on the international level for proper functioning of the progression of drug safety monitoring worldwide.

Preclinical and clinical trials test the potentiality of medicinal therapeutic efficacy of pharmaceutical products on animals and cells. The information about unseen safety issues of drugs is seen only after repeated practice in real world by large and varied population over the period. Therefore, the data collected and evaluated after phase III trial will be of the highest significance. It acts as an additional safety measure for the drug undergoing clinical trials.

Post marketing surveillance monitors the drug safety, efficacy and evaluates long term effects of treatment on greater number of patients for a considerable amount of time. Drug safety profile is evaluated through spontaneous adverse event monitoring in uncontrolled environment.
