Hypersplenism and drugs of ingredients of cladribine - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


Hypersplenism is found among people who take drugs with ingredients of cladribine, especially for people who are female, 2-9 old . This phase IV clinical study is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 2,562 people who have side effects when taking drugs with ingredients of cladribine from the FDA, and is updated regularly.

Drug(s) considered in the study (i.e. both brand name and generic drugs): Cladribine, Leustatin, Mavenclad.

Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world.
