Fludarabine phosphate and Hyperglycemia - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


We study 12,146 people who have side effects when taking Fludarabine phosphate. Hyperglycemia is found, especially among people who are male, 50-59 old, have been taking the drug for < 1 month, also take Tacrolimus and have Bone marrow conditioning regimen.

The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Fludarabine phosphate and have Hyperglycemia. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports from the FDA, and is updated regularly. You may use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.
