Unit 4: Benefit-risk assessment and pharmacovigilance

All medicines carry a certain level of risk. In this section, you can learn more about how medicines are evaluated to ensure that their benefit outweighs their risk, and to ensure that the chances that the medicinal products affect the body in any untended, harmful ways is limited as much as possible. Once medicinal products are approved for the market, pharmacovigilance methods are used to report negative side effects or adverse drug reactions.
