Who uses Embase
Embase Informing Pharma, Medical Schools, Medical Devices, and Government
Pharma and Pharmacovigilance
Support decision-making and pharmacovigilance.
Embase is as a resource for all varieties of pharma research, including, among others:
- medical pharmacology
- pharmaceutical analysis
Comply with legislation and regulations for drug safety and pharmacovigilance, study detailed drug information (including adverse events, comparisons, and therapy), and support decision-making with high-quality preclinical and clinical information.
Pharmacological research and pharmacology information is indexed by biomedical experts using Elsevier’s life science thesaurus, Emtree. All of this makes Embase an indispensable tool for the many professionals working in pharmacology research.
Support information needs at all stages of development, from early drug discovery to late clinical pharmacology and through post-marketing phases. Information managers 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. 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 (PLD) and meet the requirements of regulatory bodies.
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.
Regulatory bodies such as the FDA and EMA are intensifying safety regulations, thereby boosting the adoption rates of pharmacovigilance systems. Embase can help you track all published/peer-reviewed biomedical information on your products and quickly review side effects information reported for your product. 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.
Medical Schools and Evidence Based Medicine
Evidence Based Medicine is a wide topic area. It varies from support of point-of-care decisions to finding the best research on particular biomedical topics. Including Embase as an Evidence Based Medicine source will deliver a better basis for decision making to you and your organization. The benefits of evidence based research include creating comprehensive search strategies, conducting systematic reviews of the literature, and setting up alerts related to Evidence Based Medicine.
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.
Biomedical and Clinical Researchers
Use Embase to carry out original research and to complement lab-based research. 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.
Medical Device Regulation and Research
Embase enables medical device research by providing targeted search and navigation of thousands of biomedical journals with uniquely indexed medical device trade names and manufacturer names. With Embase you can keep current with medical device safety issues and medical device compliance updates. Monitor and be alerted to mentions of your medical device in the published literature. 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.
Look up reported economic 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.
