posted August 15, 2008

 

The Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine has posted the Cumulative Adverse Drug Experiences Summaries Report on its Web site.

The ADE report summarizes information about adverse experiences that CVM received from 1987 to July 7, 2008, by the active ingredient of each drug. Each entry lists the route of administration, species, number of animals, and signs of adverse reactions. Entries list signs of adverse reactions in order of frequency, from most to least frequent.

The report is at www.fda.gov/cvm/ade_cum.htm. The Web page also links to the "List of Brand Names Associated with Active Ingredients," "ADE Report Description," and "Glossary of Terms."
