This deliverable is based on the need to develop and test methods for safety signal detection in children. Signal detection is the mainstay of detecting safety issues, but so far very few groups have specifically looked at children. We developed reference sets for positive and negative drugevent combinations and vaccine-event combinations by a systematic literature review on all combinations. We retrieved the FDA AERS database, the CDC VAERS database and EUDRAVIGILANCE database. In order to analyse the datasets we had a stepwise approach from extraction of data, cleaning (e.g. mapping MedDRA and ATC codes) and transformation into a a common data model that we defined for the spontaneous reporting databases. A statistical analysis plan was created for the testing of methods and we provided some descriptive analyses of the FAERS data. Next steps will be to complete the analyses.

Abstract

This deliverable is based on the need to develop and test methods for safety signal detection in children. Signal detection is the mainstay of detecting safety issues, but so far very few groups have specifically looked at children. We developed reference sets for positive and negative drugevent combinations and vaccine-event combinations by a systematic literature review on all combinations. We retrieved the FDA AERS database, the CDC VAERS database and EUDRAVIGILANCE database. In order to analyse the datasets we had a stepwise approach from extraction of data, cleaning (e.g. mapping MedDRA and ATC codes) and transformation into a a common data model that we defined for the spontaneous reporting databases. A statistical analysis plan was created for the testing of methods and we provided some descriptive analyses of the FAERS data. Next steps will be to complete the analyses.
