History and Development of
Pharmacovigilance
Pharmacovigilance is a vital field that safeguards public health by monitoring the safety of
pharmaceutical drugs throughout their lifecycle. This presentation explores the pivotal moments, key
milestones, and ongoing advancements that have shaped the evolution of this critical discipline.
by Sasikiran Marri
Introduction to Pharmacovigilance
Pharmacovigilanceis the science and activitiesrelating to the detection, assessment, understanding, and
prevention of adverse effects or any other medicine-related problem. It is essential for ensuring the safe and
effectiveuse of drugs bycontinuously evaluating their benefits and risks. This overview will highlight the
importance of drug safety monitoring and provide a roadmap for the journey ahead.
1 Definition of
Pharmacovigilance
The systematic
collection, detection,
assessment, monitoring,
and prevention of
adverse effects with
pharmaceutical
products.
2 Importance of
Monitoring Drug
Safety
Identifying and
mitigating potential risks
associated with
medicines to protect
public health and
promote safe, effective
drug use.
3 Overview of
Presentation
Structure
Tracing the history,
development, and
advancements of
pharmacovigilance
systems and practices
over time.
The Thalidomide Tragedy
The Thalidomide disaster of the 1950s and 1960s was a watershed moment that catalyzed the establishment of modern
pharmacovigilance systems. This tragic event, where the drug Thalidomide caused severe birth defects in thousands of
children, exposed the urgent need for robust drug safety monitoring and regulation.
1 Thalidomide Disaster
The drug Thalidomide, promoted as a sedative and treatment for morning sickness in
pregnant women, was found to cause devastating birth defects in newborns.
2 Impact on Regulation
The Thalidomide tragedy led to major reforms in drug safety regulation, including the
introduction of rigorous pre-market testing and post-marketing surveillance requirements.
3 Catalyst for Pharmacovigilance
This pivotal event was the driving force behind the establishment of national and
international pharmacovigilance programs to systematically monitor and address drug
safety concerns.
Establishing Pharmacovigilance Systems
In the aftermath of the Thalidomide disaster, concerted efforts were made to develop comprehensive
pharmacovigilance systems at both the national and international levels. This section explores the key
milestones in the formation of these crucial drug safety monitoring frameworks.
National
Pharmacovigilance
Programs
Many countries established
dedicated national
pharmacovigilance centers to
collect, analyze, and respond
to adverse drug reaction
reports from healthcare
providers and the public.
Role of the World
Health Organization
(WHO)
The WHO played a pivotal role
in coordinating global
pharmacovigilance efforts,
including the creation of the
Uppsala Monitoring Centre
(UMC) to manage the WHO
Programme for International
Drug Monitoring.
Early Pharmacovigilance
Initiatives
In the 1960s and 1970s,
pharmaceutical companies,
regulatory authorities, and
healthcare professionals
began implementing
systematic processes for the
surveillance and reporting of
adverse drug reactions.
International Collaboration in
Pharmacovigilance
Recognizing the global nature of drug safety, the pharmacovigilance community has focused on fostering
international cooperation and coordination. This section highlights key initiatives and the importance of
cross-border collaboration in strengthening worldwide drug safety monitoring.
International Corporation
initiatives
The establishment of
organizations like the
International Conference on
Harmonisation (ICH) and the
International Society of
Pharmacovigilance (ISoP) have
facilitated the harmonization of
global standardsand best
practices.
Strengthening Global
Networks
The development of robust
international
pharmacovigilance networks
has enabled the sharing of data,
expertise, and resources,
leading to more efficient and
effective drug safety monitoring
worldwide.
Importance of Cross-
Border Cooperation
The globalization of the
pharmaceutical industry and the
need to addresssafety issues
that transcend national
boundaries have underscored
the critical role of international
collaboration in
pharmacovigilance.
Advancements in Pharmacovigilance
Systems
Over the decades,pharmacovigilancehas undergonesignificant technologicaland operational
advancementsthat have transformedthe way drug safetyinformationis collected,analyzed, and
disseminated.This sectionexploressomeof the keydevelopmentsthat have shaped the moderneraof
pharmacovigilance.

Electronic Reporting Systems
The introductionof electronic
databases,such as VigiBase,the WHO
global database of individual case
safetyreports,has revolutionizedthe
way adversedrug reactionsare
reportedand analyzed.
2 Advantages of Electronic
Reporting
Electronicreportingsystemshave
improveddata collection,enabled real-
timemonitoring,and facilitatedmore
efficientanalysis of safetysignals,
leading to quicker detectionand
responseto potentialdrug safety
issues.

Expanding Data Sources
Pharmacovigilancehas evolvedto
incorporatea broaderrange of data
sources,including electronichealth
records,patient registries,and social
media,providing a more
comprehensiveunderstandingof drug
safetyprofiles.
Regulatory Frameworks for
Pharmacovigilance
As pharmacovigilancehas becomemoreessentialto publichealth,regulatoryauthoritieshaveimplemented
