Pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance –  also known as drug safety – describes the collection, analysis, monitoring and prevention of adverse effects in drugs and therapies, and is an essential function within a life science company.

The International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) has significant guidelines for companies conducting clinical trials. Organizations are obligated to set up the right systems and processes to identify, record, report and analyze safety signals that could arise during a trial.
