Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are an important part of a product label. In this session, we will recommend ways to make ADR information in product labels more understandable and better reflective of the risk of a drug relative to a comparator. We will also discuss the importance of end-to-end labeling and tracking to ensure pharmacovigilance compliance.

Learning Objectives

Discuss how adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are presented in EU and US drug labels; Explain why the qualitative categories of ADR in an EU label and the pooling strategy to obtain ADR frequencies in a US label are inadequate; Describe improved approaches to summarize and present different types of adverse events; Describe key building blocks for a compliant end-to-end labeling system.
