UAW-Datenbank

 

“Adverse events database” (unerwünschte Arzneimittelnebenwirkungen-Datenbank). BfArM (Bundesinstitut für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte, the regulatory German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices) has created an online portal providing free access to its database of all suspected side effects reported to BfArM for all drugs since 1995. The UAW-DB is for doctors, patients, scientists and the merely curious.

The suspected side effects were submitted by hospitals, physicans and patients themselves, but not from clinical trials. Unlike the confirmed ones listed in package inserts and expert information sheets, the side effects listed here may or may not have been proven to have been caused by the medications used.
