Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:

  • Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia(isolated low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) with normal bone marrow and the absence of other causes of thrombocytopenia): 0 (0% of males aged 62 (±5) who take the drug)

As an adverse outcome could be a symptom of a condition, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, regardless of which drug is taken, how many female HBP patients aged 50 (±5) have nausea
