Clinical trials allow the drug to be tested for safety by different ethnic population. Due to the higher medical needs and increasing disease prevalence, developing countries are becoming a hub for clinical trial execution. The clinical trials market has been estimated to reach USD 14.2 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach around USD 22 billion by the year 2023, and the annual growth rate of (7.5%). There are additionally numerous clinical trials started by scholarly clinical scientists.

Adverse drug reactions can be considered a form of toxicity or enhanced drug effects that occur during appropriate use (e.g., when drug metabolism is temporarily inhibited by a disorder or another drug). In the US, 3 to 7% of all hospitalizations are due to adverse drug reactions. ADRs occur during 10 to 20% of hospitalizations; about 10 to 20% of these ADRs are severe. Incidence of death due to ADRs is unknown; suggested rates of 0.5 to 0.9% may be falsely high because many of the patients included had serious and complex disorders.

Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management comprises set of Pharmacovigilance activities and interventions designed to identify, characterize, prevent or minimize risks relating to medicinal and therapeutic products including the assessment of the effectiveness of their clinical interventions and combination therapies. Drug industry need to promote companies in pharmacovigilance practice to use information technology and to review software’s used in pharmacovigilance and clinical trials.

The role of Good Pharmacovigilance Practice and Pharmacoepidemiology in Risk Management is mainly to increase the probability of beneficial effects of a drug in a population than the probability of adverse effects and to maintain the Good Reporting Practices by avoiding the major problems in risk management. Also it is important to concentrate on Signal investigation by gathering the information on new or unknown drug effects that is potentially caused by a medicine and that finally should lead to ensuring safety.

Good data quality management in pharmacovigilance can be relied only on information gathered from the collection of individual case safety reports and other pharmacoepidemiological data. Quality management consists of quality planning, quality control, quality assurance and quality improvements. The pharmacovigilance data processing cycle starts with data collection and, in computerized systems, data entry; the next step is data storage and maintenance; followed by data selection, retrieval and manipulation.

The clinical trial industry is constantly evolving with diversified clinical research technologies and new clinical studies are being launched at an ever-growing pace. Clinical trials have always been a vital part of the medicine development process, as they provide clinical data on the best ways for treating pathological disorders and diseases. The importance of diversity in industrial clinical trials and clinical research is to ensure that industrial clinical trials are doing due diligence and being as strategic as possible in their results.

Case Report in Clinical Trials plays a key role in Clinical Research. Case reports may be on unexpected association between diseases, disorders or symptoms. An unexpected event in the course of observing, treating a patient, possibilities of pathogenesis of a disease or an adverse effect. Unique or rare salient features of a disease or therapeutic approaches or a notable variation of the anatomical structures.

There is an advantage in centralizing all safety data, clinical data, analysis and reporting with one provider. Pharmacovigilance Software tool provides comprehensive analysis of adverse events arising from the use of Pharmaceutical products (Medicinal Product, Medical Device, Vaccines, Non-Drug Therapy and Veterinary Medicinal Product). The drug safety database allows the risk- benefit analysis of medicinal products taking into account new and emerging information, in the context of cumulative information.

Due to the changing resources necessary to fulfill the regulatory requirements, some companies also choose to outsource or out task regulatory affairs to external service providers. Regulatory Affairs department is constantly evolving and growing and is the one which is least impacted during the Acquisition and Merger, and also during recession. The global pharmacovigilance market and Business opportunity was valued at USD 2,408.0 million in 2013 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period.

Regulatory Affairs for clinical trials is the major part in the clinical trials approaches. Every clinical trial must be analyzed according to the Regulatory Affairs Guidelines. There are several Regulatory Affairs departments depending upon the countries within ever growing pace of companies. Global Harmonization in standards has led to consistent approach in regulatory submissions and hence its review.
