At the invitation of the editors of this textbook on Pharmacovigilance in this chapter we provide listings of adverse drug reaction (ADR) highlights for the years 1999 and 2000. These listings were first published in the Adis publication Reactions Weekly. They are reproduced in this volume with the consent of Adis International Ltd, a Wolters Kluwer Company, and because the editors believe them to be informative and of special relevance. Particular attention is drawn to those sections of this material concerned with market withdrawals/ suspensions and additional labelling changes and regulatory actions.
These listings allow the reader to consider which drugs and drug classes attracted attention and regulatory action in the relevant years. They also allow consideration of which bodily systems and system-organ classes were affected by the adverse events that precipitated regulatory action or were the cause of concern.
The small superscript numbers in the text indicate the issue and page number of Reactions Weekly in which the relevant information originally appeared and from where that information can be retrieved.
