The division is engaged in the basic research on the safety of medicines. The major activities are focused on medicinal safety control in general, such as collection, analysis and evaluation of a variety of safety information including adverse reactions, and study on an appropriate drug information dispending system which is necessary to the proper use of medicines. Additionally as basic experiments for medicinal safety control, it has been conducted to study various factors that affect the responses to medicines using pharmacokinetic approach, and the biomarker detections and mechanisms of adverse reactions using molecular biological techniques. The division also maintains and controls the intra-network of the institute.
