Literature screening in pharmacovigilance is a critical process that involves searching, retrieving, and evaluating information from various sources to identify potential safety concerns with a drug or medical device. It is a systematic and ongoing process of searching, reviewing, and analyzing published literature and other sources of information for potential adverse drug reactions, new safety concerns, and other relevant pharmacovigilance information. This information is used to identify potential signals of harm and support drug safety decision-making.
Literature monitoring is an important component of pharmacovigilance, as it helps ensure that the latest safety information is incorporated into the benefit-risk assessment of marketed drugs.
