EXTERNAL VALIDATION OF BIOINFOGATE’S OFF-X FAERS CURATION PROCESS & STATISTICAL SIGNAL EXTRACTION TO BE SUPPORTED BY INTAGE HEALTHCARE’S CZEEKV PRO
Bioinfogate, a leading healthcare data science organization, today announced it has established an agreement with INTAGE Healthcare to perform an external validation of the methodologies used by Bioinfogate to curate information from FAERS (FDA Adverse Event Reporting System) and extract safety signals using a variety of well-established statistical methods with the CzeekV Pro database system.

Based on its longstanding experience managing and curating information from the FAERS database, INTAGE Healthcare has provided computed reports and signals from a range of drugs and treatments. These results will be used by Bioinfogate as an external validation set and as an additional quality control layer in its translational safety intelligence portal, OFF-X.
