Capoten and Staphylococcal bacteraemia - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


Staphylococcal bacteraemia is reported only by a few people who take Capoten.

The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Capoten and have Staphylococcal bacteraemia. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 2,908 people who have side effects while taking Capoten from the FDA, and is updated regularly.

Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.
