Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety (PDS), the official journal of ISPE, presents the Ronald D. Mann Best Paper Award each year to the strongest contribution within a given volume of the journal. The award for 2022 is presented to Dr. Elizabeth A. Suarez and collaborators for their paper ”Novel Methods for Pregnancy Drug Safety Surveillance in the FDA Sentinel System.” The paper discussed the application of TreeScan™, a statistical data mining tool, within the FDA Sentinel System to simultaneously identify multiple potential adverse neonatal and infant outcomes after maternal medication exposure. This method could supplement existing approaches to enhance the surveillance of medication safety during pregnancy.
In this webinar, Dr. Suarez presented findings of the study, followed by comments by PDS regional editor for the Americas, Dr. Vincent Lo Re.
