FDA Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS)

FAERS is a rich source of ready to use safety surveillance data to extract information about safety concerns reported by users and clinicians.

It is typically used to monitor and discover safety issues of a marketed drug product. The data is managed and maintained by FDA and made available for public download.

Linguamatics processes this XML to make it searchable as an I2E index.

As well as the standard ontologies, the FAERS index includes its own domain-specific ontologies containing classes which can be used to filter or display FAERS documents by the contents of their structured fields (sections within the documents).
