'reviewed' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both to do with communicating as well as being past participle verbs.
Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'amount raised to secure medicine' is the wordplay.
'amount' becomes 'sum' (synonyms).
'raised' becomes 'up' (similar in meaning).
'to secure' means one lot of letters goes inside another (inserted letters are secured inside).
'medicine' becomes 'med' (as in the informal term 'meds').
'sumup' placed around 'med' is 'SUMMED UP'.
