Various forms of chemically induced liver injury and their detection by diagnostic procedures. (1/2245)

A large number of chemical agents, administered for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes, can produce various types of hepatic injury by several mechanisms. Some agents are intrinsically hepatotoxic, and others produce hepatic injury only in the rare, uniquely susceptible individual. Idiosyncrasy of the host is the mechanism for most types of drug-induced hepatic injury. It may reflect allergy to the drug or a metabolic aberation of the host permitting the accumulation of hepatotoxic metabolites. The syndromes of hepatic disease produced by drugs have been classified hepatocellular, hepatocanalicular, mixed and canalicular. Measurement of serum enzyme activities has provided a powerful tool for studies of hepatotoxicity. Their measurement requires awareness of relative specificity, knowledge of the mechanisms involved, and knowledge of the relationship between known hepatotoxic states and elevated enzyme activities.  (+info)

Use of ineffective or unsafe medications among members of a Medicare HMO compared to individuals in a Medicare fee-for-service program. (2/2245)

Adverse drug reactions and inappropriate prescribing practices are an important cause of hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality in the elderly. This study compares prescribing practices within a Medicare risk contract health maintenance organization (HMO) in 1993 and 1994 with prescribing practices for two nationally representative samples of elderly individuals predominantly receiving medical care within the Medicare fee-for-service sector. Information on prescriptions in the fee-for-service sector came from the 1987 National Medical Expenditures Survey (NMES) and the 1992 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS). A total of 20 drugs were studied; these drugs were deemed inappropriate for the elderly because their risk of causing adverse events exceeded their health benefits, according to a consensus panel of experts in geriatrics and pharmacology. One or more of the 20 potentially inappropriate drugs was prescribed to 11.53% of the Medicare HMO members in 1994. These medications were prescribed significantly less often to HMO members in 1994 than to individuals in the fee-for-service sector, based on information from both the 1987 NMES and the 1992 MCBS. Utilization of unsafe or ineffective medications actually decreased with increasing age in the HMO sample, with lowest rates in individuals over the age of 85. However, no relationship between age and medication use was seen in the NMES study, except for individuals over the age of 90 years. The study data support the conclusion that ineffective or unsafe medications were prescribed less often in the Medicare HMO than in national comparison groups. In fact, for the very old, who are most at risk, the use of these medications was much lower in the Medicare HMO than in the Medicare fee-for-service sector. Nevertheless, in 1994, approximately one of every nine members of this Medicare HMO received at least one such medication. Continued efforts and innovative strategies to further reduce the use of unsafe and ineffective drugs among elderly Medicare HMO members are needed.  (+info)

Is reporting rate a good predictor of risks associated with drugs? (3/2245)

AIMS: Uncertainty as to relative under-reporting plagues the comparisons of spontaneous reporting rates as a tool for decision-making in pharmacovigilance. However, it is generally accepted that under-reporting should be reasonably similar for similar drugs sharing the same indication, country and period of marketing. To test this, we compared the adverse drug reaction reporting rates to the French regional pharmacovigilance centres for six pairs of identical drug marketed at the same time by different companies under different brand names (co-marketing). METHODS: All reaction reports were related to sales, to compute reporting rate; within each pair, the reporting rate ratio and its confidence interval were calculated. RESULTS: The rate ratios were all between 0.76 and 1.33. Two of them were significantly different from 1 (1.28; 95% C.I. [1.01; 1.60] and 1.33; 95% C.I. [1.06; 1.74]). CONCLUSIONS: These small differences in reporting rates would not warrant regulatory action and support the usual assumption of similar reporting for similar drugs.  (+info)

Retrospective analysis of the frequency and recognition of adverse drug reactions by means of automatically recorded laboratory signals. (4/2245)

AIMS: To estimate the frequency of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) identified through the use of automatic signals generated from laboratory data (ALS) in hospitalised patients. To determine the frequency of spontaneous recognition of these ADRs by the attending physicians and to assess the potential value of ALS for detection of ADRs. METHODS: Laboratory results of patients hospitalised in a nine bed medical ward were automatically recorded over a period of 17 months. Values exceeding defined boundaries were used as ALS. Charts of every third patient were analysed retrospectively with regard to adverse drug related reactions and causality was evaluated as well as whether the ADR had been recognised during the period of hospitalisation. RESULTS: The charts and ALS of 98 patients were analysed. In 18 cases a drug-related adverse reaction was probable. Awareness to the reaction by the treating physicians was evident in 6 out of these 18 ADRs. Approximately 80% of the ADRs were considered predictable. Three ADRs were regarded as serious. CONCLUSIONS: Adverse drug reactions are common and often preventable. Only one third of ADRs which could have been detected through ALS were recognised by the attending physicians. An increased doctor's awareness of the frequency of drug related abnormal laboratory results by means of ALS is likely to increase the recognition rate of ADRs and might help to prevent them.  (+info)

Use of dexfenfluramine, fenfluramine and phentermine and the risk of stroke. (5/2245)

AIMS: To estimate the incidence of newly diagnosed idiopathic stroke among users of fenfluramine, dexfenfluramine and phentermine compared to obese nonusers. METHODS: We conducted a cohort study with nested case-control analysis utilizing data from the General Practice Research Database in the UK. Eight thousand four hundred and twenty-three subjects aged 69 years or less at the start of follow-up were exposed to at least one of the three study drugs and 17 225 similarly obese subjects were not exposed to any of the study drugs. RESULTS: We identified 45 incident cases of idiopathic CVA in this cohort of subjects. The incidence of CVA among all current users of a diet drug was 1.3/1000 person-years (95% CI 0.5, 3.5). The incidence for current fenfluramine users (n=2) was 2.6/1000 person-years (95% CI 0.7, 9.6), for current dexfenfluramine users (n=1) 1.1/1000 person-years (95% CI 0.3, 3.8), and for current phentermine users 0/1000 person-years (95% CI 0.0, 12.9). The incidence in obese nonusers was 0.6/1000 person-years (95% CI 0.4, 0. 9). The adjusted matched odds ratio (OR) for thrombotic stroke from the case-control analysis comparing current use of a diet drug to nonuse was 2.4 (95% CI 0.6, 9.1). There was only one exposed subject among seven who had haemorrhagic stroke. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of CVA in generally young obese subjects during use of fenfluramine, dexfenfluramine or phentermine is low. Although we found an OR of 2. 4 comparing users of any of the anorexiants with nonusers, this is based on only three exposed cases and the confidence limits are wide. We conclude that our study does not support a substantial increased risk of stroke attributable to the use of fenfluramine, dexfenfluramine or phentermine.  (+info)

Agranulocytosis in Bangkok, Thailand: a predominantly drug-induced disease with an unusually low incidence. Aplastic Anemia Study Group. (6/2245)

Agranulocytosis, a syndrome characterized by a marked reduction in circulating granulocytes, is strongly associated with medical drug use in Europe and the United States. Unregulated use of common pharmaceutical agents in developing countries has been suspected of causing large numbers of cases of agranulocytosis and deaths, especially among children. To elucidate the incidence and etiology of agranulocytosis in Thailand, a population-based case-control study of symptomatic agranulocytosis that resulted in hospital admission was conducted in Bangkok from 1990 to 1994. An attempt was also made to study the disease in Khonkaen (in northeastern Thailand) and Songkla (in southern Thailand), but there were insufficient cases in the latter regions, and the analysis was confined to subjects from Bangkok. In that region, the overall incidence of agranulocytosis was 0.8 per million per year; there were no deaths. As expected, the incidence was higher in females (0.9 per million), and it increased with age (4.3 per million beyond age 60). Among 25 cases and 529 controls the relative risk estimate for a combined category of all suspect drugs was 9.2 (95% confidence interval = 3.9-21), and the proportion of cases that could be attributed to drug use was 68%. For individual drugs and drug classes the data were sparse; within these limitations, the strongest association appeared to be with antithyroid drugs. One case and three controls were exposed to dipyrone, a drug known to cause agranulocytosis; with such scanty data the risk could not be evaluated. Exposure to pesticides or solvents was not associated with an increased risk. This is the first formal epidemiologic study of agranulocytosis in a developing country. As in the West, most cases are attributable to medical drug use. However, the incidence of agranulocytosis in Bangkok, and apparently, in Thailand as a whole, is unusually low, and the disease does not pose a public health risk.  (+info)

A prospective study of adverse drug reactions in hospitalized children. (8/2245)

AIMS: There are few publications of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) among paediatric patients, though ADR incidence is usually stated to be higher during the first year of life and in male patients. We have carried out a prospective study to assess the extent, pattern and profile risk for ADRs in hospitalized patients between 1 and 24 months of age. METHODS: An intensive events monitoring scheme was used. A total of 512 successive admissions to two medical paediatric wards (47 beds) were analysed. The hospital records were screened daily during two periods (summer, 105 days and winter, 99 days), and adverse clinical events observed were recorded. RESULTS: A total of 282 events were detected; of these, 112 were considered to be manifestations of ADRs. The cumulative incidence was 16.6%, no differences being observed between periods. Although there were no differences between patients under and over 12 months of age, risk was found to be significantly higher among girls compared with boys (RR=1.66, 95% CI 1.03-2.52). The gastro-intestinal system was most frequently affected. The therapeutic group most commonly implicated was anti-infective drugs and vaccines (41.5%). The ADRs were mild or moderate in over 90% of cases. A consistent relationship was noted between the number of drugs administered and the incidence of ADRs. CONCLUSIONS: Hospitalized patients exhibited an ADR risk profile that included female sex and the number of drugs administered. No particular age predisposition was observed. The most commonly prescribed drugs are those most often implicated in ADRs in paediatric patients.  (+info)

Frequency of serious adverse drug reactions is defined at the number of participants with serious adverse drug reactions. Frequency of serious adverse drug reactions were tabulated by each symptom. Adverse events are defined as any unfavorable and unintended signs, symptoms or diseases temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product reported from the first dose of study drug to the last dose of study drug. A serious adverse event is any experience that suggests a significant hazard, contraindication, side effect or precaution that: results in death, is life-threatening, required in-patient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect or is medically significant. Among these, events which are considered possibly associated with a medicinal product are defined as adverse drug reactions ...
The accurate identification of drug side effects represents a major concern for public health. We propose a collaborative filtering model for large-scale prediction of drug side effects. Our approach provides specific recommendations for side effects of medicines. The proposed latent factor model relies solely on the public drug-side effect relationships from safety data. Applied to 1,525 marketed drugs and 2,050 side effects, we achieved an AUPRC (area under the precision-recall curve) of 0.342 in a hold-out test set, with a sensitivity of 0.73 given a specificity of 0.95, providing state-of-the-art performance in ...

Drug side effects cause a significant clinical and economic burden. However, mechanisms of drug action underlying side effect pathogenesis remain largely unknown. Here, we integrate pharmacogenomic and clinical data with a human metabolic network and find that non-pharmacokinetic metabolic pathways dysregulated by drugs are linked to the development of side effects. We show such dysregulated metabolic pathways contain genes with sequence variants affecting side effect incidence, play established roles in pathophysiology, have significantly altered activity in corresponding diseases, are susceptible to metabolic inhibitors and are effective targets for therapeutic nutrient supplementation. Our results indicate that metabolic dysregulation represents a common mechanism underlying side effect pathogenesis that is distinct from the role of metabolism in drug clearance. We suggest that elucidating the relationships between the cellular response to drugs, genetic variation of patients and cell ...

William Osler. We live in an era of polypharmacy. Many people, particularly the elderly, ingest five or more drugs daily for a multitude of common problems such as high blood pressure, arthritis pain, depression, diabetes, and so on. Most of these drugs, when prescribed and carefully monitored by a physician, help relieve symptoms, and some are even lifesaving. However, unintended consequences can cause important side effects.. The greatest risk factor for adverse drug-related events is the number of drugs prescribed. For example, the risk of an adverse drug effect is 50 to 60 percent if four drugs are taken chronically, and almost 100 percent with eight or nine drugs.. It is critical that patients review their entire drug list, including dietary supplements, at each visit with their physician or pharmacist. Often, a physicians role is to educate patients about what drugs not to take, and to de-prescribe drugs rather than add more. A general recommendation for the patient is to take a drug for ...

Drug side effects are one of main concerns in the drug discovery, which gains wide attentions. Investigating drug side effects is of great importance, and the computational prediction can help to guide wet experiments. As far as we known, a great number of computational methods have been proposed for the side effect predictions. The assumption that similar drugs may induce same side effects is usually employed for modeling, and how to calculate the drug-drug similarity is critical in the side effect predictions. In this paper, we present a novel measure of drug-drug similarity named

Todays post from pacificcollege.edu (see link below) is a general article about the benefits of acupuncture for relieving the side effects of HIV combination drugs. It also specifically references neuropathy which may be of interest to regular readers. Many younger people, especially in the West, where HIV drugs have been significantly refined to reduce side effects considerably over the last few years, may well shrug their shoulders here and say that they have no side effect issues from combination therapy. However, the vast majority of people across the world who are living with HIV havent achieved that luxury yet. They have to remain on older drug combinations because of resistance issues if they change, or non-availability and they may well have been living with side effects for so long that its become part of their daily lives. In these cases, this article may be of value. It is important to consult a qualified acupuncturist who knows what he/she is doing and although it is relatively ...

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) has been suggested to have useful analgesic properties and to be devoid of unwanted effects. Here, we have examined critically this contention, and discussed available data concerning the pharmacokinetics of PEA and its formulation. Sixteen clinical trials, six case reports/pilot studies and a meta-analysis of PEA as an analgesic have been published in the literature. For treatment times up to 49days, the current clinical data argue against serious adverse drug reactions (ADRs) at an incidence of 1/200 or greater. For treatment lasting more than 60days, the number of patients is insufficient to rule out a frequency of ADRs of less than 1/100. The six published randomized clinical trials are of variable quality. Presentation of data without information on data spread and nonreporting of data at times other than the final measurement were among issues that were identified. Further, there are no head-to-head clinical comparisons of unmicronized vs. micronized ...
Trilipix side effects range from minor symptoms like constipation, diarrhea and heartburn, to pain in the back, arms and legs. You may also get persistent headaches.

This handbook focuses on adverse drug reactions in tuberculosis treatment. Tuberculosis is a multisystem disease with varied clinical presentations. One-third of the worlds population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and there is 10% lifetime risk of developing tuberculosis and the risk further increases to 10% annual risk in immunocompromised patients. This book is written with the aim of defining a practical approach to every aspect of adverse drug reaction in tuberculosis treatment. In total, there are 21 chapters in the book. Chapters practically cover all the aspects of adverse drug reaction in TB treatment ranging from pharmacology, interaction between anti-TB drugs with food and other drugs including antiretroviral drugs, monitoring and management of adverse drug reaction of antituberculosis used in new and drug-resistant cases of tuberculosis. Special chapters on case-based approach to treatment of tuberculosis and MDR-TB and XDR-TB in special situation like pregnancy, renal
Adverse drug reactions cause considerable morbidity and mortality world-wide [1] and in many cases are avoidable. Pirmohamed and colleagues estimated that in England, adverse drug reactions were responsible for around 6.5% of all acute hospital admissions and at least 5,000 deaths per year [2]. In the USA, adverse drug reactions are one of the leading causes of death in the population [3]. Hence, adverse drug reactions have a major impact on public health, reducing patients quality of life and imposing a considerable financial burden on the health care systems at a time when many health care systems are under considerable financial strain.. Drug reactions can be typically described in two groups. Type A reactions intrinsic (which are often dose-dependent) are relatively common. Type B reactions are usually more serious: idiosyncratic reactions that are not necessarily dose-dependent. We expect the majority of ADR admissions to be Type A reactions.

Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a leading cause of morbidity in developed countries and represent a substantial burden on health-care resources. Many countries spent 15% to 20% of their hospital budgets to treat drug complications. However, few studies have measured the pharmacoeconomic effects of ADRs on hospitalized patients in China. The study estimates the costs of ADRs as identified from the spontaneous voluntary reports completed from healthcare professionals. To do so, we calculate these costs, determine the sum of Medicare payments and their proportion of total healthcare spending, and evaluate the incidence of ADRs, characteristics of hospitalized ADR patients, and outcomes of ADRs in China. This retrospective survey studied patients who experienced ADRs during their hospitalization at a Chinese tertiary-care teaching hospital. The patients were divided into group A and group B according to general ADRs and serious ADRs in Provisions for Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring and Reporting. The
This e-book presents the present kingdom of information of simple mechanisms of difficult drug reactions (ADRs). the main target is on idiosyncratic drug reactions simply because theyre the main tricky to accommodate. It starts off with a basic description of the foremost goals for ADRs by way of an outline of what are shortly believed to be mediators and biochemical pathways fascinated with idiosyncratic drug reactions. theres additionally an outline of numerous examples of ADRs that serve to demonstrate particular features of ADR mechanisms. finally the ebook exhibits that eventually larger tools are had to expect which drug applicants are inclined to reason ADRs and which sufferers are at elevated danger. yet at the present study appears to be like faraway from this goal. ...
Title:Pharmacogenetics and Anesthetic Drugs. VOLUME: 7 ISSUE: 2. Author(s):Vidya Chidambaran, Pornswan Ngamprasertwong, Alexander A. Vinks and Senthilkumar Sadhasivam. Keywords:Anesthesia, genetics, personalized medicine, pharmacogenetics. Abstract:The incidence and potential for serious adverse drug reactions (SADRs) in anesthesia are high due to the narrow therapeutic indices of anesthetic and analgesic drugs and high interindividual variability in drug responses. Genetic factors contribute to a majority of these SADRs. Pharmacogenetics (PG), the study of genetic effects on drug action, is strongly related to the field of anesthesia; historically, succinylcholine apnea and malignant hyperthermia were among the first PG disorders reported. Recent years have strengthened this affiliation with an emerging wide base of knowledge of the effects of genetic variations on the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of anesthetic drugs. Here, we review the history of anesthetic PG, the important genes ...

Annato plant, a source of tocopherol-free tocotrienol.. When I lost my short-term memory six weeks after starting Lipitor, I immediately suspected my new medicine and discontinued the drug. At my next NASA physical, I was urged to resume taking it and reluctantly agreed, only to suffer a much worse memory loss a few weeks later. For 12 hours, I suddenly became a teenager with total recall for my high school days, but absolutely no awareness that I was a doctor, married with children and a former NASA astronaut. This began my decade of research on the subject.. To my amazement, I discovered an extraordinary lack of information in my own medical community as to the true spectrum of statin drug side effects. I started a Web site (www.spacedoc.com), which has become a major message board and resource for those with statin drug-associated side effects. My four books-Lipitor, Thief of Memory, Statin Drug Side Effects, Statin Damage Crisis and The Dark Side of Statins-present the reasons for adverse ...

The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the incidence of serious adverse drug reactions while using insulin detemir under normal clinical practice
by PWeekly , Oct 24, 2016. Physicians Weekly talked with Peter J. Zed, BSc, BSc (Pharm), ACPR, PharmD, FCSHP, and Neil J. MacKinnon, PhD, FCSHP, about their recent study that found that about one of every 12 emergency department (ED) visits by pediatric patients is medication related. PW: What makes medication-related pediatric ED visits an important topic to study? PZ: Adverse drug events and patient safety in healthcare have come to the forefront in the last decade. Much of the work on adverse drug events and patient safety has been conducted in adults and pediatric patients are often under-represented or excluded from this work. As a result, there are gaps in the literature surrounding the understanding of the impact of adverse drug events in pediatric patients. NM: To date, no prospective trials have been conducted in this area. In the United States, were trying to reduce preventable hospital readmissions, and we know that many medication-related issues are preventable. ED visits can ...
An observational study to analyze predisposing factors, causality, severity and preventability of adverse drug reactions among multidrug resistant tuberculosis patients treated under RNTCP program in Northern India
The proposed cohort study collected within a 5-month observation period adverse drug reaction (Adverse Drug Events - ADE) in patients at the Department of Oncology at the University of Zurich. ADE have been recorded using prospective monitoring and assessed using standardized algorithms regarding causality and severity. Data sources included information from the medical records, laboratory values and internal rounds. Additional information has been collected using a standardized patient questionnaire.. The primary endpoints of this study are to determine the frequency of ADE, the comparison of the quality of data sources and collection methods for the detection of ADE in regard to patient characteristics, size, number of medications, the category of ADE, severity, causation, diagnosis, hospitalization, cause of hospitalization and medication cause. Secondary endpoint is the assessment of the ADE causality, severity and predictability. ...
The expanded use of multiple drugs has increased the occurrence of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) induced by drug-drug interactions (DDIs). However, such reactions are typically not observed in clinical drug-development studies because most of them focus on single-drug therapies. ADR reporting systems collect information on adverse health effects caused by both single drugs and DDIs. A major challenge is to unambiguously identify the effects caused by DDIs and to attribute them to specific drug interactions. A computational method that provides prospective predictions of potential DDI-induced ADRs will help to identify and mitigate these adverse health effects. We hypothesize that drug-protein interactions can be used as independent variables in predicting ADRs. We constructed drug pair-protein interaction profiles for ~800 drugs using drug-protein interaction information in the public domain. We then constructed statistical models to score drug pairs for their potential to induce ADRs based on drug pair
Cancer is a serious disease expected to be the world-leading cause of death in the 21st century. The use of harsh chemotherapies is motivated and accepted but, unfortunately, is often accompanied by severe toxicity and adverse drug reactions (ADRs). These occur because the classical chemotherapies common modes of action effectively kill and/or reduce the growth rate not only of tumour cells, but also of many other rapidly dividing healthy cells in the body. There are also considerable interindividual differences in ADRs, even between patients with similar cancers and disease stage treated with equal doses; some experience severe to life-threatening ADRs after one dose, leading to treatment delays, adjustments, or even discontinuation resulting in suboptimal treatment, while others remain unaffected through all treatment cycles. Being able to predict which patients are at high or low risk of ADRs, and to adjust doses accordingly before treatment, would probably decrease toxicity and patient ...
We found relatively poor agreement between traditional trigger tool and EDW based screening with only approximately a third of all AEs detected by both methods. Our results were consistent across designations of preventability and severity of AEs. Prior studies similarly revealed poor agreement between computerised and trigger tool based strategies to detect AEs. In a study focusing on ADEs, Jha and colleagues reported that a computer based method detected 45% of events, trigger tool based screening detected 65% and only 12% were detected by both methods.14 More recently, Tinoco and colleagues reported that a computerised surveillance system detected more hospital acquired infections than trigger tool based screening, but a similar number of ADEs.19 Importantly, the study found that only 26% of hospital acquired infections and 3% of ADEs were detected by both methods.19 Our study provides additional support that computer facilitated screening may complement the traditional trigger tool approach ...

Introduction As asthma medications are frequently prescribed for children, knowledge of the safety of these drugs in the paediatric population is important. Although spontaneous reports cannot be used to prove causality of adverse events, they are important in the detection of safety signals. Objective Our objective was to provide an overview of adverse drug events associated with asthma medications in children from a spontaneous reports database and to identify new signals. Methods Spontaneous reports concerning asthma drugs were obtained from EudraVigilance, the European Medicine Agencys database for suspected adverse drug reactions. For each drug-event combination, we calculated the proportional reporting ratio (PRR) in the study period 2011-2017. Signals in children (aged 0-17 years) were compared with signals in the whole population. Analyses were repeated for diferent age categories, by sex and by therapeutic area. Results In total, 372,345 reports in children resulted in 385 diferent ...

Keywords: statins, testosterone, drug side effects Background For so long, statins seemed so simple. All the news, or almost all the news, was good news. However, our confidence, or was it smugness, that we knew all we needed to know about this important class of medicines has ended with XL765 the recent evidence that diabetes mellitus may be a side-effect of statin therapy [1], a realization that comes disappointingly late in the game given how many years statins have been used and how many statin studies have been performed; further proof that randomized medical tests (RCTs) are better checks of the XL765 benefits than the risks of therapies and that RCTs are only one element in the full montage of evidence that needs to be put together about the benefits and risk of drug therapy. Todays research by Schooling et al.
