All medicines have side effects. The majority of these are identified at the clinical investigation stages and can be found in the package leaflet of a medicine. Despite the extensive clinical research and multiple reviewing stages, not all side effects are always discovered. Unknown side effects can occur when a medicine is used more often, over a longer period of time and by a large patient population. In the healthcare industry, we call these ‘adverse events’.
Reporting any adverse events - even if they may not be related to the use of a medicine – is of vital importance for all patients’ safety. These reports help the manufacturer of a medicine to understand the cause of such effects and respond efficiently where necessary.
Galapagos – together with its partner Gilead - consistently collates and reviews product safety information received from clinical trials and post-marketing activities. The information received is evaluated on an ongoing basis ensuring a continuing safety surveillance of our products.
