Pharmacovigilance is a field of science that primarily deals with determining, verifying, quantifying, analyzing and reducing the ill effects of medical drugs, devices or biologicals, thus increasing their safety.

Pharmacovigilance is an anchor throughout the life cycle of new drugs and devices due to a demand created by the requirement of new medical treatments and their legislation.

With the global financial drift and the promise shown by emerging nations such as India, China, Brazil and Russia, the drug development industry is moving its R & D and pharmacovigilance activities towards these regions for better efficiency and cost savings.

At the core of clinical research and pharmacovigilance is the area of regulatory affairs. Regulatory Affairs teams are well aware about local and international regulations pertaining to research activities, marketing of drugs etc and help facilitate innovation and reducing the time to market of promising new therapies.

In today’s drug development landscape with fierce competition among pharmaceutical companies, people with formal training in regulatory affairs spearhead large global projects from a regulatory perspective and make sure that studies are carried out as per the applicable regulatory requirements.
