An adverse event is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient administered a medicinal product and which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An adverse event can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (e.g., an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. This includes Special Reporting Situations such as:
- Overdose, abuse, or misuse of the product;
- An adverse event occurring from the withdrawal of the product;
- Lack of product effect/efficacy;
- Accidental or occupational exposure to the product;
- Medication error (suspected or actual, including “near-miss” reports);
- Pregnancy or exposure to the product during breastfeeding;
- Suspected transmission of infectious agent via product;
- An unexpected therapeutic or clinical benefit;
- Suspected or actual report of counterfeit product;
- Off-label use.
