Pharmaceutical companies actively monitor the safety profiles of their marketed medicines as well as those under development, with the purpose of timely detection, prevention or minimization of adverse drug reaction risks. Pharmacovigilance activities in a pharmaceutical company include the collection of adverse event reports in the company safety database, medical analysis of the reports, their reporting to the medicines agencies, as well as systematic and periodic analysis and review of cumulative data. Since pharmacovigilance requirements are clearly defined, with special emphasis on global timely data exchange, tools were designed to make this more efficient and precise; for example the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA). One of the most important pharmacovigilance purposes is detecting new information and risks related to medicines, a process called safety signal detection. This is done by statistical methods and scientific analysis of data on quality, clinical and non-clinical information, pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiological data and published scientific literature.
