Detection of new adverse drug reactions is fundamental to the protection of patients from harm that may occur as a result of medication. This book explores the methods used to investigate new adverse drug reactions, discussing all elements from the scientific background and animal toxicology through to worldwide regulatory and ethical issues.

Adverse Drug Reactions is a practical guide to the reactions that affect particular organ systems. Chapters cover the most common types of reaction, how to recognise them, and the medicines implicated most often.
