Pharmacovigilance [Pharmacovigilance update]
Revue Médicale Suisse
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article ; Review PDF type: Review
The observations of pharmacovigilance reported during 2007 reflect an increasing attention towards drug-induced augmentation of the incidence of common disorders. New substances are thus to be added to the list of risk factors susceptible to favour cardiovascular events (tegaserod, rosiglitazone, erythropoïetin, aprotinine) or psychiatric disorders (dopaminergic agonists, rimonabant). The evaluation of the security profile of new medicines remains challenging. Besides biological investigations of questionable relevance and clinical trial of inconstant efficiency towards safety outcomes, the role of pharmacovigilance notifications by practitioners remains of paramount importance.
