Pharmacovigilance (PV) and Product Safety
- Changing regulation and increasing litigation is increasing the focus on pharmacovigilance (PV), general drug safety and clear information for patients.
- Safety documentation must clearly present the benefit-risk profile of treatments and pharmacovigilance requirements seek to keep patients better informed.
- Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSURs) are produced in a new format – PBRER (Periodic Benefit-Risk Evaluation Report) and the Development Safety Update Report (DSUR) replaced the old European ASR (Annual Safety Report) and the United States IND Annual Report.
- Risk Management Plans (RMPs), mandatory for all European drug submissions since 2012, must also contain a Summary of the RMP (Part VI) – a presentation of the drug’s risks in language which patients can understand.
- We can consult in helping you to assess your needs and prepare the documents you will need. Trilogy has the experience to cover the rigorous pharmacovigilance reporting required.
- Our experience in presenting both safety data and drug benefits in clear, accessible and patient-friendly language offers you the opportunity to take one more burden off your mind. We also work with an independent physician, who can provide any assessment advice you may need.
