To assist with the standardized reporting and aggregation of adverse events, CTSI now offers access to a subscription to MedDRA, the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities. MedDRA is used to report adverse event data from clinical trials, and for post-marketing reports and pharmacovigilance. MedDRA is a pragmatic, clinically validated terminology that applies to all phases of drug development, excluding animal toxicology. It also applies to the health effects and malfunction of medical devices, and was developed by the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH).
