Pharmacovigilance with Oracle Argus Database

PV is absolutely crucial during the clinical research phase of drug development to ensure it is safe for distribution, but it is also vital to continuously monitor the drug. Post-market safety monitoring is the only way to get an accurate picture of a drug’s safety and ensure adverse events are properly reported for review.

Why this course ?

Pharmacovigilance is the beating heart of pharmaceutical production. Without it, there would be no way to assess the effectiveness of drugs in comparison to their side effects. Pharmacovigilance, also known as PV, is designed to protect patients and enable the dissemination of knowledge amongst professionals to minimize the risk of adverse events.
