Brajovic S, Piazza-Hepp T, Swartz L, et al. Pharmacoepidemiol Drug Saf. 2012;21:565-70; discussion 571-2.
The Food and Drug Administration is piloting a new system that allows triggered reporting of suspected adverse drug events, with data automatically supplied from existing electronic medical record systems. This study evaluates the quality of such reports and identifies areas where the reports could be improved.
Wysowski DK, Swartz L. Arch Intern Med. 2005;165:1363-9.
This study analyzed reports of suspected adverse drug events (ADEs) submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Using more than 30 years of collected data, investigators discovered nearly 2.3 million case reports for the 6000 drugs in the database. These reports resulted in additional safety warnings, a greater list of known ADEs with specific drugs, and a small percentage of drugs pulled from the market. The authors advocate for continued vigilance and reporting to ensure the safety of drugs prescribed to patients.
