"Pharmacovigilance Has Been Expanding in Recent Years, as Companies Are Required to Monitor Drug Safety Post Launch," Says Visiongain Report

Pharmacovigilance gaining in importance after Vioxx problems - Visiongain new report analyses post-marketing assessment from the present onwards. Drug safety issues, such as those raised by Vioxx earlier this decade, have led to increased risk-averseness by regulators, with greater post-marketing assessment of drugs.

Pharmacovigilance has been expanding in recent years, as companies are required to monitor drug safety post launch. Drug safety issues, such as those raised by Vioxx earlier this decade, have led to increased risk-averseness by regulators, with greater post-marketing assessment of drugs. Many regulatory agencies require detailed pharmacovigilance, with companies bearing extra costs, Visiongain new report also observes. Healthcare payers, prescribers and patients have high expectations from pharmacovigilance. They want thorough information - on adverse reactions and overall drug safety - upon which to make informed judgments. Pharmacovigilance is now being called upon to produce clear results, expressed openly. What will those trends mean for pharmacovigilance, from the perspectives of major stakeholders, including the pharma and biotech industries? Where is pharmacovigilance heading? What regulatory measures will continue, and which new processes will emerge? This new report - Pharmacovigilance 2009: Present Challenges and Future Goals - explains how that field will develop from the present onwards.

Clearly, pharmacovigilance is increasingly important worldwide, especially to avoid reoccurrences of serious, costly problems damaging to the industry. Pharmacovigilance is designed to provide crucial data on how drugs work in medical practice, from the short-term to the long-term. This information can aid drug development and marketing if harnessed properly, being a boon rather than a hindrance. In particular, visiongain believes that live licensing will form a significant part of pharma regulations and drug development in coming years. Pharmacovigilance will underpin processes and developments such as these, as this report further explains.
