Challenges and solutions for pharmaceutical companies

Pharmacovigilance, or drug safety monitoring this is the science and the activity, aimed at identifying, assessment and prevention of adverse reactions or any other possible problems, related to drugs.

The relevance of pharmacovigilance in modern conditions is explained of non decreasing incidence of adverse reactions to drugs, which entail serious consequences for healthy patients, as well as additional costs for the treatment of complications of pharmacotherapy.
In the field of local pharmacovigilance, The Ministry of Health has introduced an order № 358 from 12.05.2017 - on approval Regulations on conducting pharmacovigilance activities, for harmonization with international approaches and EU requirements.

Good Pharmacovigilance Practice (GVP) is a mandatory organization standard drug safety monitoring work of each Marketing Authorization. GVP standards transition increases patient protection, creates conditions for safety use of innovative and breakthrough drugs, increases the export potential of the pharmaceutical industry, guarantees successful passing of PV inspections. This leads in turn at a fairly high cost. If they are simply obligatory in the homeland of the manufacturer, then in its export markets, price for PV can be a heavy burden. Here comes to the rescue Chapter XII, Section 6. Subcontracting (from the Ministry of Health Order № 358 from 12.05.2017, REGULATIONS on the implementation of PV activities) – the Marketing Authorization Holder can conclude an agreement on subcontracting with third parties for certain tasks of the PV system.
