ADVERSE DRUG REACTIONS: AN OVERVIEW OF THE OLD AND CONTINUOUS CHALLENGE TO DRUG THERAPY AND DEVELOPMENT

TLDR
An overview of the currently used definitions and classifications of ADRs in clinical pharmacology and toxicology and a special emphasis is made on the importance of ADR in clinical drug therapy and drug development, which are the areas where ADRs play the most significant role.

Causality assessment and the severity of the adverse drug reactions in tertiary care hospital: a pharmacovigilance study

TLDR
The aim was to study the adverse drug reactions reported in a tertiary care hospital and causality assessment and severity of adverse drug reaction (ADR) cases reported with the main objective of creating awareness among the health care professionals and patients on adversedrug reactions and their reporting.

This review summarizes current knowledge on the incidence, prevalence, mortality and risk factors for hypersensitivity drug reactions in different populations.

Idiosyncratic Adverse Reactions to Antiepileptic Drugs

Summary:  Idiosyncratic drug reactions may be defined as adverse effects that cannot be explained by the known mechanisms of action of the offending agent, do not occur at any dose in most patients,

Understanding adverse drug reactions and drug allergies: principles, diagnosis and treatment aspects.

TLDR
The role of detecting, reporting, and assessing suspected ADRs and drug allergies in the most clinically relevant drugs group will be highlighted and priorities in the evaluation and management of the conditions of patients who have experienced allergic and non-allergic drug reactions also will be discussed.

An observational study of drug induced cutaneous reactions used in various group of patients

TLDR
A good knowledge of ADRs, a careful history taking and watchful approach while prescribing of new drugs can prevent many of the adverse drug reactions, which justify the development of an intensive programme of pharmacovigilance.

The incidence of serious and fatal adverse drug reactions in US hospitals was found to be extremely high, and data suggest that ADRs represent an important clinical issue.

Incidence of Adverse Drug Events and Potential Adverse Drug Events: Implications for Prevention

TLDR
Adverse drug events were common and often preventable; serious ADEs were more likely to be preventable and prevention strategies should target both stages of the drug delivery process.

TLDR
It was the doctors' opinions about patients' expectations that were the strongest determinants of prescribing with the increasing promotion of rational prescribing, practitioners need to be aware of these influences on prescribing.
