Early identification of the hazards associated with drugs is the main goal of those involved in pharmacovigilance. ?Signal detection?, ?signal generation? or ?signalling? refers to a process that aims to find, as soon as possible, any indication of an unexpected drug safety problem which may be either new ADRs or a change of the frequency of ADRs that are already known to be associated with the drugs involved. The results of this surveillance exercise tend to arouse suspicions and should always be followed up by in-depth investigations. Spontaneous reporting systems for suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) remain a cornerstone of pharmacovigilance. The requirement for companies to perform signal detection is mandatory in Europe and highly recommended in the U.S. This session will describe how to implement signal detection as part of company?s pharmacovigilance operations thus will cover signal assessment, timing and frequency of signal detection, triage, and data mining runs.
