TransCelerate Event

Webinar: Understanding Case Reporting Transmission Networks in Drug Safety: The Impact of Replication

Join TransCelerate BioPharma for a presentation and panel discussion on our Individual Case Study Report (ICSR) Replication Paper. The article is the first quantification of the phenomenon of ICSR replication across Health Authority and marketing authorization holder safety databases. It presents a first-of-its-kind illustration of the diverging case information that can exist across data repositories. The webinar includes:

  • A presentation of the analysis that quantifies the amount of ICSR replication within the pharmacovigilance (PV) ecosystem.  
  • A panel discussion of the value of reducing the duplicative, replicated ICSR-related activities and the impact of that reduction on patient safety and prompting discussions about mitigating regulatory and technical approaches.
