Phase IV trials

The today's drug regulation systems of developed countries strive for continuous post-marketing evaluation of drug efficacy and safety with elaboration of various risk management programs. Such programs combine post-marketing drug safety and efficacy profile studies (by observational, retrospective studies, maintaining registers, active monitoring) and the measures aimed at prevention of excessive drug therapy (risk mitigation tools).

Assistance in organization of this phase trials will be of particular interest for the manufactures of drugs long being on the market, to support rationality of their use, and thus confirm clinical reasonability of drug usage, which is the key success factor of future circulation in the pharmaceutical market.
