FAQs PharmaPendium

PharmaPendium’s searchable FDA/EMA drug approval documents and the extracted data from these reference sources provide essential information to support critical drug safety, drug candidate selection and risk mitigation decisions. Users can leverage precedent information and data: to verify and support experimental findings for safety testing of drug candidates and their selection; to develop preclinical and clinical study designs; and to anticipate potential clinical risks.

PharmaPendium’s comprehensive content updates constantly and includes 75+ years of FDA drug approval packages and 20+ years of EMA approval documents, FDA Adverse Events Reporting System (AERS) reports and additional high-value regulatory-related information and data. In addition, the extracted databases from the FDA and EMA drug approval documents provides a unique translational view across preclinical, clinical and post market to provide deep insights into drug development issues such as drugdrug interactions, therapeutic window and drug safety and adverse events.

Investigators that complete preclinical and clinical drug development research are the main users of PharmaPendium. In particular, scientists who work with DMPK, pharmacodynamics, safety pharmacology, clinical pharmacology, translational and clinical research, and modeling and simulation groups often benefit the most from PharmaPendium’s content.
