Drug safety monitoring and pharmacovigilance
An essential aspect of drug development and lifecycle management is systematically screening the international literature landscape for adverse events. Embase helps you track adverse drug reactions in an auditable manner and meet regulatory requirements. Capturing potential and unanticipated side effects better informs risk-benefit assessments and safety profile optimization.
