Literature reviews for drug safety

Dialog Solutions undertakes literature reviews for drug safety and submits the articles qualified as Individual Case Safety Reports to our customers within the period of time they desire. We also triage articles that contain additional safety-relevant data for Aggregate Reports and Signal Detection. This results in as much as a 70% reduction of the literature “noise” for product leads and safety scientists, enabling them to complete their review for aggregate reports and signals with greater efficiency.

Indexing and abstracting

Based on a customer’s selection criteria, we can route articles of interest to their product literature database, index all articles for fast and precise retrieval and create custom abstracts that can be shared without fear of copyright violation. Dialog Solutions also has specialists with expertise in maintaining database thesaurus


Our team performs PSUR, DSUR, NDA and animal alternative searches according to regulatory strategies that have been approved by our customers. We also perform ad-hoc searches, a process that involves translation-specific information needed for a research topic or decision making in a search syntax that retrieves the most relevant articles from literature.

Alerts services:

Our team supports our customers with the creation and maintenance of the search strategies that periodically run in commercial databases. We deliver customers the most relevant articles for their pharmacovigilance processes. Alerts manager further simplifies customers’ handling of the alerts by keeping track of alert history and permitting bulk updates.
