In addition to the information UKTIS collects on a daily basis from healthcare professional enquiries for the purpose of surveillance, UKTIS also conduct and participate in a number of more specific research projects.
UKTIS are currently involved in:
ConcePTION - In April 2019, a landmark public-private partnership called ConcePTION was awarded a five year grant by the Innovative Medicines Initiative to tackle many of the research gaps related to medicines use by pregnant women. The project, which unites 88 organisations from 22 different countries, aims to build a pan-European ecosystem for generating, monitoring and providing robust information on the safety of medicines use in pregnancy and breastfeeding.
UKTIS is a consortium partner in the project and will work alongside other partners participating in numerous different work packages and sub-tasks.

International ‘TIS’ studies - We are collaborating with teratology information services (‘TIS’) around the world to study the effects of a variety of drugs used in pregnancy.
The analysis and publication of surveillance data collected by UKTIS remains an essential function of the service. In the past 5 years UKTIS staff have co-authored a number of studies that included prospective pregnancy outcome data collected by UKTIS. Please click here to see our full list of publications.
