Unswerving global or local literature monitoring services which support signal management and inform the benefit-risk profile of your medicine.

Our multidisciplinary literature surveillance team performs end-to-end local and/or global literature safety surveillance activities, using global biomedical databases such as Medline, PubMed and Embase, and social media monitoring. These search strategies are product- and drug class specific. These services are overseen by the appointed QPPV and medical reviewer(s). A testament to our expertise and success in developing meaningful search strategies and formulating optimized literature queries, both medical and scientific, is our ever-increasing exposure as portrayed in the Quick Facts below.

The depth of our expertise in developing meaningful search strategies and formulating optimized medical and scientific literature queries is evidenced in our global literature monitoring activities in numbers. These activities support both clinical trial and post-marketing activities, such as:

  • ICSR detection
  • Inform communication activities: what we uncover about people’s perceptions about a specific medication or issue can help our clients to develop targeted messaging
  • Inform post-authorization studies (PAS) protocols, and
  • Review for signal detection purposes.
