Pharmacovigilance is an important part to be a continuous process of evaluation including steps to improve safe use of medicines which involves pharmaceutical industry, regulatory authorities, health practitioners and patients. The methodologies have broadened to encompass many different types of study, with spontaneous reporting remaining the fundamental. The relation for ADRs in highly vulnerable populations is of even greater concern. Pharmacovigilance is especially important since most of the adverse effects are reversible by modifying the dosage or omitting the offending medicine. Nikhil N.
