Types and sources of data 41 PEM has the advantage that the number of users is known and therefore that event frequencies can be quantitated. An important point about the method is that all events are recorded, whether or not there is suspicion that they were drug-induced. PEM may therefore identify effects that clinicians do not recognise as being ADRs. It can also be used to investigate potential safety issues which have been identified during development. In PEM, patients taking specific medicines are identified through prescriptions written by general practitioners (GPs).

E. 75). 0013. 0013 ϭ 556. 00001. As can be seen from the statistical tests, this was very unlikely to have occurred by chance and is a very extreme finding. In fact, this signal was quite obvious without using any mathematics. The approach is more likely to be useful in identifying signals that might otherwise be missed when the PRR is much lower – say in the range 1–10. e. the value of chi-squared exceeds 4 (roughly the 5% level of statistical significance). Harking back to the point made above about generally needing three cases, it is therefore possible to regard the following as cut-off points for a minimum signal: • PRR Ͼ 3 • Chi-squared Ͼ 4 • N ϭ 3 or more Using such criteria whole databases can be screened regularly by calculating 2ϫ2 tables for all drug-reaction combinations to identify those that most need further attention.

This is because clinicians are not surprised to see cases of common diseases. Although spontaneous ADR reporting is a well-established method, both the utility of the schemes and the data they generate are frequently subject to misperceptions. For example, a report prepared by politicians in 2005 described the UK scheme as ‘widely considered to be failing’, an assessment which no scientist experienced in the field would accept. One of the main reasons for this assessment seems to be the problem of under-reporting but this is inherent in the method.
