Currently, the development of analytical databases on the Internet makes it possible to determine the relevance of certain keywords. Among others, “pharmacovigilance, cheap” and “full range of pharmacovigilance services” occupy quite high positions. And this is a fairly new trend. So what do users who search for “pharmacovigilance, cheap” or “full-service pharmacovigilance” on Internet search engines want?

According to the WHO definition, pharmacovigilance (PV) is scientific research and activities related to the detection, evaluation, understanding and prevention of adverse reactions or any other problems related to a medicinal product.

Since 2010 in the Russian Federation there have been significant changes in the regulatory framework governing activities in the field of pharmacovigilance. FZ-61 “On Circulation of Medicines” is the main document that defines the priority of state control of safety and efficacy of medicines (drugs) registered in Russia. The state function of drug safety monitoring is assigned to the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare and Social Development (Roszdravnadzor). Roszdravnadzor collects, processes, and analyzes information on drug safety and sends it to the Russian Ministry of Health (MoH). Based on the results of drug safety monitoring, the Federal Law provides for the possibility of suspending the use of a drug and even revoke of state registration. Chapter 6 of the Federal Law states that in order to confirm the state registration of a drug it is required to submit the results of its safety monitoring. These new legislative requirements have increased the responsibility of manufacturers and registrants for organizing a system to study the safety of their drugs (pharmacovigilance systems).

Each firm holding an authorization certificate is required to form a report what is known as a PSUR – a periodical safety updated report, and submit it on specified dates and deadlines. And it’s what internet users, who are looking for “pharmacovigilance, cheap” and “full range of pharmacovigilance services” on the web want to order!
