FDA takes new steps to increase access to adverse event report data for medical products used in animals

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it is making available online the adverse event reports related to animal drugs and medical devices used in animals. The reports will go back 30 years. They will be available electronically on openFDA.gov, an agency-run digital platform used by researchers, statisticians and other academics to access large, valuable public health datasets collected by the FDA. 

This action is part of a broader effort by the agency to increase the transparency and sharing of adverse event report data related to the medical products that the FDA regulates.
