Importance of Reporting Adverse Events

When a new chemical entity (NCE) is first marketed, it would have been tested only in a limited number of patients/volunteers. Rare adverse drug reactions/events could be identified only after the drug is marketed and used by a much larger population. Safety information in use in special groups such as children, elderly, pregnant women etc. are not often available at the time of first marketing of a new drug.
