Dexamethasone and Central nervous system lymphoma - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data
Central nervous system lymphoma is found among people who take Dexamethasone, especially for people who are male, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 1 - 6 months.
The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Dexamethasone and have Central nervous system lymphoma. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 105,970 people who have side effects when taking Dexamethasone from the FDA, and is updated regularly. You can use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.
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.
105,970 people reported to have side effects when taking Dexamethasone.
Among them, 40 people (0.04%) have Central nervous system lymphoma.
