Biomedical Evidence is Essential

To successfully perform critical functions such as pharmacovigilance, generating high-quality systematic reviews in support of evidence-based medicine and drug and medical device efficacy studies, pharmaceutical and life sciences organizations require a wide array of biomedical evidence.

Embase increases the discovery of biomedical evidence to support critical life sciences functions, delivering relevant, up-to-date biomedical information to the global biomedical research community.
