Heike Benecke, Director of Vigilance Risk Management, Mundipharma Research will be exploring: 'ICSR Download from Eudravigilance in practice: First Experiences and Hurdles with Generic Products.'

Summary of presentation:

Kevin Klein, Project Manager, Lygature will be discussing: 'Is more always better? Non-value added reports from patient support programmes as an example of the ‘precautionary reporting bias'.’

Summary of presentation:

- A large number of nonvalue-added reports have been accumulating in ADR databases that can potentially impede safety signal detection
- The extensive patient contact by MAHs in such patient support programs was identified as an important source of such nonvalue-added reports
- These reports could be regarded as precautionary reports by MAHs to meet regulatory requirement
- In this presentation, they demonstrate the suppressing effect of such precautionary reports on statistical signal detection methods
