Cephalexin and Ototoxicity - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data
Ototoxicity is reported only by a few people who take Cephalexin.
The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Cephalexin and have Ototoxicity. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 22,314 people who have side effects while taking Cephalexin 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.
22,314 people reported to have side effects when taking Cephalexin.
