Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology

With the prospect that innovative drug therapies will be introduced in the coming years, society demands new approaches and concepts for comparative risk/benefit evaluation. These evaluations are carried out once these therapies have been used widely in daily practice. Assessment of safety and risk management of different drug therapies is done in the framework of observational epidemiological studies (proof of 'safety', proof of 'effectiveness'). This is the logical next step after randomized clinical trials, which are designed to provide evidence of a drug's 'efficiency'.
