Reporting adverse drug reactions associated with herbal products: consumer, health food store personnel and pharmacist perspectives. Rishma Walji, PhD thesis 2008, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Toronto Background: Natural health products (NHPs) are sold over-the-counter and are often perceived to be safe, despite potential risks.
Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a significant public health problem. This thesis examined the incidence and nature of adverse drug reactions following admission to hospital. An initial pilot study was conducted to develop methodology, which was then utilised in a study of 3695 patients. Approximately 15% of patients experienced an ADR following admission, of which one-third were serious.

Community pharmacists are increasingly expected to improve disease management both by aiming to improve the effective use of medicines and by reducing the occurrence and severity of preventable adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The current PhD research began by assessing the challenges to the medicines reconciliation from patients' perspectives.
Thompson (1977) divide adverse reactions into Type A reactions (also termed as augmented. reactions), which are the undesired pharmacological effects of drugs and are dosage-. dependent, and which are predictable and thus preventable too. Some examples of this type.
Abstract Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are common in older adults, with falls, orthostatic hypotension, delirium, renal failure, gastrointestinal and intracranial bleeding being amongst the most common clinical manifestations.
The approach: scientometric analysis of adverse drug reactions The basic assumptions of this research project, which were stated in the introduction, can be translated into two hypothesis that form the basis of this PhD research project: Adverse drug reactions can be used as a source of new information in the process of drug design and development.

ADVERSE DRUG REACTION A response to a drug that is noxious and unintended, and occurs at doses normally used in humans for prophylaxis, diagnosis or therapy of disease, or for modification of physiological function ADVERSE DRUG WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME A clinical set of symptoms or signs that are related to the removal of a drug.
Abstract Background: Adverse drug reactions are responsible for a significant proportion of hospitalisations. This PhD aimed to develop and optimise methods for detecting serious adverse drug reactions in databases of electronic health records for use in pharmacoepidemiology and genetic epidemiology, with a focus on cholestatic liver injury.
Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) are a global health problem and a leading cause of death, illness and injury in economically developed countries. Therapeutic response, as well the occurrence of undesired effects, can differ significantly between children and adults and many drugs have not been sufficiently studied in the paediatric population.
Adverse Drug Reactions Adverse drug reactions are unwanted pharmacologic effects associated with medications. Examples of adverse drug reactions include drowsiness from first-generation antihistamines, constipation from codeine-containing medications, nausea from theophylline, and diarrhea from ampicillin.

Adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports of countries varies due to differences in the prevalence of diseases and hence the types of drugs used. ADRs are a major health and economic burden worldwide. National health authorities monitor the safety of medicines to protect consumers from the hazards of drugs.
