  • The association between antihypertensive drugs and glioma.Abstract

    We pursued an association between hypertension and gliomas by investigating whether antihypertensive drugs (AHD) are associated with an increased glioma risk by a population-based nested case-control study using the PHARMO database; this links dispnsing records of prescription drugs to hospital discharge data on an individual basis

  • Drug-induced thrombocytopenia: a population study.Abstract

    BACKGROUND: Drug-induced immune thrombocytopenia, excluding heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, is a rare adverse drug reaction for which the evidence about frequency, relative risk and risk factors mainly originates from case reports and case studie. This study aims to quantify the risk for thrombocytopenia following exposure to drugs that are most often reported to cause thrombocytopenia in the general population
