Under-Reporting of Adverse Drug Reactions The purpose of this review was to estimate the extent of under-reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to spontaneous news systems and to analyze whether or not there ar variations between differing types of ADRs. a scientific literature search was dispensed to spot studies providing a numerical estimate of under-reporting. Studies were enclosed no matter the methodology used or the setting, e.g. hospital versus general apply. Estimates of under-reporting were either extracted directly from the … Continue reading “News Update on Adverse Drug Reaction Research: Oct – 2019”
