At Ipca Laboratories Ltd., our commitment to ensuring safety of drugs goes beyond mere compliance. We understand the need and importance of monitoring drug safety - right from the discovery of the medicine throughout the life of the drug.
Drug safety is an important consideration for all stakeholders involved with drugs, right from the health care professionals, who are medically qualified persons, such as physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurses and coroners to patients who consume the drug, to drug regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical companies who are involved in manufacturing and marketing of the drugs.
Though drugs come to clinical practice only after they are proven safe in clinical trials, rare adverse events can surface anytime during their life cycle. All drugs are normally associated with the possibility of adverse events and are prescribed only when the beneficial effects override consideration of any adverse events, which may result from its use.
Pharmacovigilance activity has hence been initiated by Ipca as a dedicated function to ensure consistent drug safety.
