Signals Identified from KAERS
- KIDS periodically detects signals on the basis of data collected through KAERS.
- A signal refers to reported information on a possible causal relationship between an adverse event and a drug, the relationship being unknown or incompletely documented previously. Usually more than a single report is required to generate a signal, depending upon the seriousness of the event and the quality of the information.
- KIDS analyzes the KAERS database and generates safety signals accordingly.
- KIDS publishes the ‘KIDS Potential Signal Communication’ quarterly in order to promptly share signal identified from the KAERS and follow-up safety actions in Korea.
