Statistical Strategies for Using Sources of Safety Data

August 16, 2018

Various data sources are used to evaluate patient safety throughout the healthcare product lifecycle, but the strengths and limitations of these sources can vary widely. In their most recent research published in Therapeutic Innovation & Regulatory Science, the Safety Working Group of the Biopharmaceutical Section of the American Statistical Organization focused on statistical strategies for obtaining reliable evidence from sources of safety data. This podcast discusses these strategies with three members of the working group: Dr. Richard Zink, Director of Statistical Services at TARGET PharmaSolutions; Dr. Olga Marchenko, Head of Therapeutic Area Statistics at Bayer, and Dr. Qi Jiang, Executive Director of Global Biostatistical Science, Head of Therapeutic Areas in Oncology, Inflammation, and Nephrology at Amgen.
