There are two key elements in any product acquisition: Safety profile and market potential. Partnering with Ashfield provides the expertise you need to address both.

If your plans for growth include acquiring another company or product, you need an expert pharmacovigilance partner for your purchasing process. It’s as simple as that. Otherwise, you may end up with more of a liability than an asset.

Naturally, you’re going to do your due diligence before investing in a pharmaceutical property. But have you got the right people looking at safety and risk? Specifically, are you getting a detailed in-depth review by a physician-led team with relevant PV experience? Anything less and you may miss product risk that you need to know about before you close the deal.

You need accurate information — but you also need it at the right time. Choosing the wrong consultant — anyone other than a full-time PV specialist such as Ashfield Pharmacovigilance — could unnecessarily delay your progress toward completing the acquisition. It may just take them too long to do the job. APV delivers the timely reporting you need to make an informed decision.
