At some point in our lives, we all have to use a form of medication. An aspirine against a headach, a vaccination to resist a virus, antibiotics to eliminate a bacterial infection or perhaps a longer trial te fight cancer. Some chronical diseases have patients bound to medicines for the rest of their lives. Medicines do not always do what they promise to do. Due to physical differences and differences in our daily use of medicine, the effects of medicine can vary strongly.
At PHARMO Institute we have been studying the use, effectiveness and side effects of medicines, as they are used in daily practice for many years. We use large files of data from millions of patients to investigate why and how often medicines are less effective or even cause side effects.
PHARMO Institute is the place you turn when you need substantiated, authoritative evidence. We are scientists first—academically trained, credentialed researchers who know how and when to apply the appropriate research methodologies to your realworld applications and situations. We care about doing what’s right and what’s relevant, so medical professionals and patients can make good, safe, and timely decisions about pharmaceutical products.
