Why Proactive Pharmacovigilance Can Work

My last two blogs compared a hypothetical example of reactive and proactive pharmacovigilance (PV). My next installment in this series outlines how PV can work. Rather than reacting to the data, in the second hypothetical scenario, Company A pivoted with ready-planned interventional pharmacovigilance practices at the level of the intake system and took a patient-centric […]

Proactive Pharmacovigilance: Another Real-World Example

My previous blog provided a hypothetical example of reactive pharmacovigilance. This blog will examine the opposite, proactive pharmacovigilance and the success it can bring. Company A launches a first-in-class drug/device combo biologic for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. The drug has a novel mechanism of action. In clinical trials, ACR response was 26 weeks. The […]

Reactive Pharmacovigilance: A Real-World Example

Previously, I examined the best ways to overcome challenges with a new pharmacovigilance system. I now want to provide a hypothetical example of reactive pharmacovigilance. Company A launches a first-in-class drug/device combo biologic for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. The drug has a novel mechanism of action. In clinical trials, the American College of Rheumatology […]

Overcoming Challenges with a Pharmacovigilance System

My last blog outlined the potential for increased return on investments when pharmacovigilance is implemented. The next blog in this series discusses the best ways to overcome any challenges with new systems. Looking at a pharmacovigilance system holistically, there are interconnected, interdependent parts. Understanding how those individual parts function independently, as well as their impact […]

Pharmacovigilance: The Return on Investment

Previously, I analyzed the history of pharmacovigilance (PV), AEs and clinical therapeutics. This post examines the potential for increased return on investments when pharmacovigilance is implemented. All AE data holds value; how that value is determined takes an astute scientific approach to surveillance. In 2001, the medical literature began to include the results of a […]

Historical Perspective of AEs, Pharmacovigilance, and Clinical Therapeutics

My last bog talked about mitigating data overload with proactive pharmacovigilance (PV). The next blog in this series analyzes the history of PV, AEs and clinical therapeutics. As early as the 1980s, it was recognized that prostaglandins were important in renal function, especially in hypertensive patients. Prostaglandins preserve and maintain renal blood flow and thus […]

[Guide] Mitigate Data Overload with Proactive Pharmacovigilance

Surveillance of pharmacovigilance (PV) and product quality-complaint (PQC) data is not a new activity. For years we have known that adverse events temporal to drugs occur. Moreover, they are consistently underreported, impacting analysis of the data in unknown ways. Nearly every regulatory authority across the world has guidance and requirements in place for marketing authorization […]

Questions Regarding Pharmacovigilance Reporting During COVID-19

With the shift to working from home, changing daily priorities, and resources during the COVD-19 pandemic, regulators have or are making transitions to ease the stress without losing valuable data that may contribute to the treatment of COVID-19 or interrupting clinical trials. The pace at which the information on COVID-19 itself appears is so fast; […]

Drug-Induced Live Injury – Causes, Identification and Risks

This afternoon at the DIA Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies Conference in Washington, D.C, we are digging down into one of the cruxes of surveillance in pharmacovigilance (PV); drug-induced live injury (DILI). Vicky and I attended a panel consisting of hepatic experts sharing information on the latest drug-related DILI and the best way to detect […]

Opening Remarks from the DIA Pharmacovigilance Strategies Conference

Today marks the beginning of the DIA Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies Conference in Washington, D.C., and the aura around the event is incredible. Industry speakers, short courses, hot topics, networking, education, and round-table discussions. All dedicated to enhancing the foundation for strong strategic planning and practical decision-making in pharmacovigilance programs. The Perficient team is […]

Solving a Complex Problem with a Fit-for-Purpose in PV Analytics

Analytics (i.e., using math and other systematic approaches to bring understanding to pharmacovigilance) data can have its own adverse event: a strong sensation of nausea if you haven’t had the opportunity to put into place a sensible, compliant solution that is the right fit for your organization. You can even have an on-demand solution, when […]
