Expanded Access to Relevant Drug Safety Information

A drug-specific adverse event search in Embase results in a matched search and linked access to relevant preclinical and clinical and post-release drug information found in PharmaPendium. With instant access to both, researchers can save time and increase confidence in your their data-driven risk monitoring management decision-making.

Improve adverse event monitoring

A single drug information searchA search for a drug and its associated adverse events in Embase now delivers:

  • Literature-based reported adverse events information reported in the biomedical literature
  • FDA/EMA approval packages in PharmaPendium
  • Preclinical and clinical reported adverse events (AERs) in PharmaPendium

Together, Embase and PharmaPendium provide streamlined and comprehensive information that better informs your risk management strategy.

Streamline your existing drug search

With one search, access relevant biomedical data and extracted regulatory information to:

  • Monitor adverse events from reported in biomedical literature
  • Investigate historical precedents for adverse event management
  • Understand pre-clinical, clinical and post-market safety data in the context to of regulatory information
  • Compare your drug candidate with approved drugs and reported adverse effects across drugs and drug classes

Leverage the most relevant data to make critical risk assessments, design more effective trials and make informed decisions.
