Elsevier PharmaPendium Case Study

Teva is using PharmaPendium to inform drug candidate selection, improve clinical trial design and better understand safety risks


This case study of Teva is based on a May 2017 survey of Elsevier PharmaPendium customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“PharmaPendium saved my team time.”


The business challenges that led Teva to evaluate and ultimately select Elsevier PharmaPendium:

  • Reduce the number of preclinical studies that are required by citing relevant preclinical studies
  • Have more confidence in go/no-go drug development decisions/recommendations
  • Improve the speed and success of regulatory submissions

Use Case

  • Uses PharmaPendium weekly.
  • Teva has:
    • >5 drugs in the pipeline
    • A focus on generic drugs
    • An involvement in regulatory submissions
    • A focus on performing clinical trials on drugs in development


Teva uses the data in PharmaPendium for their work in the following ways:

  • To better inform drug candidate selection by looking at comparative preclinical and clinical safety, deliverability and/or efficacy data
  • To design better clinical trials that will optimize benefit:risk ratio for their drug candidate
  • To better understand safety risks related to drug-drug interactions, off-target effects and/or polypharmacy
  • Teva would spend over 50% more time collecting the equivalent information without access to PharmaPendium.
  • Survey respondents recommend to continue subscribing to PharmaPendium.
