Clinical & Pharmacoepidemiology

A person dispenses medicine from a bottle. Exponent helps improve the safety and efficacy of pharmaceutical products.

Evaluate Illness & Disease

Exponent's multidisciplinary teams design and conduct rigorous clinical trials, public health surveillance activities, and observational studies. Our clinical epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology experts consult on almost every type of disease, medical product, and population of interest.

How does Exponent's multidisciplinary approach provide insight to complex clinical trial design?

Exponent's multidisciplinary teams of epidemiologists, statisticians, clinicians, and clinical toxicologists provide the expertise needed for the rigorous conduct and evaluation of clinical epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology studies.

Our teams are highly skilled in the design and analysis of clinical trials, meta-analysis of treatment effects, evaluation of spontaneous reports of adverse events, and pre-and post-marketing safety assessments using clinical trial data.

Our observational pharmacoepidemiology studies provide "real-world" assessments of potential short-term and long-term benefits and adverse drug events in populations with a more diverse range of providers, patient health status, and demographic characteristics.

How does sound science influence our pharmacoepidemiology safety studies?

We regularly perform pharmacoepidemiology safety studies designed to identify the types and frequency of adverse events associated with a given agent to determine reasons that may explain the adverse events and seek to address the following questions:

  • Are the events dose-related?
  • Does the pharmaceutical agent interact with other medications or substances to promote adverse events?
  • Are certain high-risk subpopulations or pertinent lifestyle factors related to the event?
  • Is the pharmaceutical agent being used in accordance with label instructions?
