Veterinary Pharmacovigilance – Adverse Reactions to Veterinary Medicinal Products PDF. When a new veterinary medicinal product is launched into widespread use, adverse drug reactions may become apparent.
Veterinary Pharmacovigilance – Adverse Reactions to Veterinary Medicinal Products
These may be seen in the treated animal patients, in exposed users or as adverse effects on the environment. Additionally, they may manifest as excess residues of the drug in food of animal origin. As a consequence, legislation and regulatory approaches have developed across the globe to address these issues and to ensure that the continued safety of these pro-ducts can be monitored and, where necessary, that regulatory actions can be pursued to assuage any concerns. All of these can be covered by the single term ‘pharmacovigilance’.
This book is an attempt to survey and summaries current approaches to veterinary pharmacovigilance, to review the types of effects that may be seen and to examine some of the scientiﬁc principles involved. I hope it will prove useful in academia, in the regulatory environment and within the animal health industry.
Finally, I should like to pay tribute to one of my contributors, Ramzan Visanji, who died in October 2008. Ramzan, a person of tremendous courage, was a great colleague and a good friend. His advice and views will be sorely missed, as will his ﬁne sense of humour.
