Adverse Drug Reactions in Humans – Data from Veterinary Pharmacovigilance Schemes

Adverse drug reaction reporting schemes, or pharmacovigilance schemes as they are frequently known, are useful in monitoring patient safety for both human and veterinary drugs. Virtually all veterinary pharmacovigilance schemes require the reporting of adverse reactions in humans exposed to veterinary medicinal products. This chapter examines the functioning and output of two of these schemes, one in a European Union member state, the United Kingdom, and the other in the United States.
