Embase: From Pharmacovigilance to Evidence Based Medicine
Embase supports the worldwide biomedical research community
A multitude of science and medical professionals, from clinicians to pharmacovigilance teams, look to Embase to support their research and work. Researchers, students, and teaching staff alike rely on Embase for the breadth and depth of information it provides, and the ease of access to its valuable data.
Biomedical and Clinical Researchers
You can use Embase to carry out original research and to complement lab-based research. You'll enjoy the ability to extract up-to-date information within specific fields from a multitude of sources. Embase also facilitates research on health and disease and advising on treatment options. Avoid missing vital information in your field of research, build comprehensive databases of evidence gathered from trusted sources, and assess the quality of information to drive clinical decision making.
Support information needs at all stages of development, from early drug discovery to late clinical pharmacology and through post-marketing phases with Embase. You need to set up complex search strategies, stay aware of research for in-house drugs and competitor drugs, access pharmacology research related to any drug that's being tracked, and manage a clinical trial database – and Embase is there for you. Do your teams need help making go/no-go decisions at critical points in pharmaceutical research and development? With Embase you can make sure that all relevant information is disseminated through the organization. We can also help feed the published literature component of a Product Literature Database and meet the requirements of regulatory bodies.
Evaluating new tools and training end-users to search for information are among your many responsibilities as a medical librarian. You contribute to innovation and serve as a search specialist, answering questions and supporting quality publications. Use Embase to support physicians and researchers and to provide them with trusted biomedical information and clinical evidence. Distribute accurate and easy-to-read digests of Evidence Based Medicine research news and data sources and prepare comprehensive systematic reviews. Email alerts and RSS feeds mean that you won't miss out on the latest findings.
With Embase you can keep current with safety issues and compliance updates. Look up reported evaluations of specific drug therapies or disease management, compare the therapeutic effects of two or more substances on a disease, track a specific drug trade name in the literature, and retrieve necessary information needed to comply with legislation and regulations. Specific Evidence Based Medicine search limits such as Cochrane Review, Controlled Clinical Trial, Meta Analysis, Randomized Controlled Trial, and Systematic Review allow you to filter the results that you are looking for. Go to market faster by keeping up with FDA regulations and medical device approval measures like the MAUDE database, 510k database, and MEDDEV clinical evaluation.
Embase is here for you at every stage
Development and Clinical Trials Research
With Embase you can be proficient in clinical data management, from filing the initial investigational use of drugs to clinical trial design. Monitor similar clinical trials and reduce failure of trials, comply with drug safety, be confident that a drug is safe before the trial commences, and remain informed of regulatory changes and trends. Refine your search using Embase's drug toxicity and clinical trial subheadings, applied directly to the drug you're searching.
Pharmacovigilance and Post-Market
Regulatory bodies such as the FDA and EMA are intensifying safety regulations, thereby boosting the adoption rates of pharmacovigilance systems. Embase helps you to track all published/peer-reviewed biomedical information on your products and to quickly review reported side effects and adverse events information. Compare the therapeutic effects of two or more substances on a disease, look up reported economic evaluations of specific drug therapies or disease management, track a specific drug trade name in the literature, and retrieve information needed to comply with legislation and regulations. Embase is also helpful for regulatory filing documentation such as New Drug Application (NDA) and clinical trial research and program management, including protocol and study report writing.
