Clinical Trial Drug Safety

Case Processing and Submissions

What is it?

Sponsors of clinical trials and marketing authorisation holders of medicinal products must legally capture, process and submit adverse events that occur with their products. This includes the databasing of serious adverse events (SAE) and expedited reporting of suspected, unexpected serious adverse reactions (SUSAR) to regulatory authorities and agencies. The processing should be efficient, effective and allow for the assessment in change in frequencies, severity or seriousness of these adverse events.

How we can help

We provide support across the full span of single case processing, including triage, medical review, quality review, Responsible Person for EudraVigilance allocation and expedited and periodic reporting.

Our timely, thorough, and accurate processing and reporting of adverse events are among the most important services that we provide. As a combined entity, we have been providing clinical trial safety services since 1992. During this time, our pharmacovigilance group has grown to include over 1,000-experienced safety associates globally.

Our centralised team within pharmacovigilance maintains our regulatory intelligence information in coordination with our local teams around the globe. The centralised submissions associates perform submissions to health authorities, ethics committees and Safety Alert Letters (SAL) to investigative sites, and track regulatory compliance metrics for all safety reporting.

We employ the use of Oracle Argus Safety database as our global comprehensive solution for product safety monitoring and compliance. Argus functionality supports the pharmacovigilance regulatory/industry requirements with the ability to produce international expedited and periodic reports.

Safety Data Report Writing (DSUR) 

What is it?

Periodic analysis of aggregated safety data is an important part of both the clinical development of a medicinal product and for the ongoing maintenance of drugs with marketing authorisations. These reports summarise the assessment of any new safety issues that could affect patient safety. It also provide the status of a clinical programme or marketed drugs alongside their risk-benefit profile.
