Allopurinol and Hepatitis infectious - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


Hepatitis infectious is reported only by a few people who take Allopurinol.

The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Allopurinol and have Hepatitis infectious. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 164,051 people who have side effects while taking Allopurinol from the FDA, and is updated regularly.

With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe enables everyone to run phase IV clinical trial to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor effectiveness. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ peer-reviewed medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature. Most recently, phase IV clinial trails for COVID 19 vaccines have been added, check here.
