Assessments

This webpage provides access to Sentinel assessments that have been conducted by U.S. FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER).  The search options below can be used to find materials based on medical product, safety outcome, and the following study types:

  • Exploratory Analyses characterize the rates of health outcomes, examine medical product use, and explore the feasibility of more detailed evaluations. 
  • Safety Analyses build on exploratory work and formally evaluate medical product-outcome associations using more advanced study designs and statistical methods to control for confounding. 

Search results provide a listing of assessments, reported results, related links to publications, and FDA Drug Safety Communications. If you wish to search for information on other types of projects, a comprehensive listing of all Sentinel projects, including all assessments, data, surveillance tools, methods, and communication materials can be accessed using the Report Finder.
