Localised osteoarthritis and drugs of ingredients of prednisolone - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


Localised osteoarthritis is found among people who take drugs with ingredients of prednisolone, especially for people who are female, 30-39 old . This phase IV clinical study is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 165,620 people who have side effects when taking drugs with ingredients of prednisolone from the FDA, and is updated regularly.

Drug(s) considered in the study (i.e. both brand name and generic drugs): Cortalone, Delta-cortef, Fernisolone-p, Meti-derm, Prednisolone, Prelone, Sterane.

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.
