The PROTECT Pregnancy Study
Recommendations are given to pregnant women about a large number of health and lifestyle choices during pregnancy, including advice about alcohol, tobacco or medicines use. All these recommendations are made with the developing baby in mind, as keeping mum healthy during pregnancy gives the baby the best environment in which to grow. In order for doctors and midwives to have the most up to date information available, it is important to collect details about the health and lifestyle choices women make whilst pregnant.

PROTECT is a collaborative European project that comprises a programme to address limitations of current methods in the field of pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance. The goal of PROTECT is to strengthen the monitoring of the benefit-risk of medicines in Europe. This will be achieved by developing a set of innovative tools and methods that will enhance the early detection and assessment of adverse drug reactions from different data sources, and enable the integration and presentation of data on benefits and risks. These methods will be tested in real-life situations in order to provide all stakeholders (patients, prescribers, public health authorities, regulators and pharmaceutical companies) with accurate and useful information supporting risk management and continuous benefit-risk assessment.
