A methodological approach for analysis of drug safety data which permits the calculation of risk measures for intermittent exposures and acute adverse reactions is presented.
This method allows for the observation of exposures that are temporary and which may be of varying lengths, as in the application of analgesics.
Risk measures are determined using the relative risk and the excess risk to assess drug safety.
The latter has important public health policy significance for decision making about the safety of a drug.
The model depends on a simple counting process and allows for the consideration of concomitant variables which can likewise exert an influence on the absolute risk.
