Using the Echantillon Généraliste de Bénéficiaires: random 1/97 permanent sample of the French national healthcare insurance system database (EGB), we investigated whether, as previously suspected, the risk of cancer in insulin glargine (A21Gly,B31Arg,B32Arg human insulin) users is higher than in human insulin users. The investigation period was from 1(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance and complication rate of CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsy of pulmonary lesions using a coaxial automated biopsy device and to determine factors influencing the false negative rate for the diagnosis of malignancy. A prospective study of 605 consecutive biopsies performed in 595 patients was(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between use of benzodiazepines and incident dementia. DESIGN Prospective, population based study. SETTING PAQUID study, France. PARTICIPANTS 1063 men and women (mean age 78.2 years) who were free of dementia and did not start taking benzodiazepines until at least the third year of follow-up. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
PURPOSE Data mining on electronic health records (EHRs) has emerged as a promising complementary method for post-marketing drug safety surveillance. The EU-ADR project, funded by the European Commission, is developing techniques that allow mining of EHRs for adverse drug events across different countries in Europe. Since mining on all possible events was(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this research was to automate the search of publications concerning adverse drug reactions (ADR) by defining the queries used to search MEDLINE and by determining the required threshold for the number of extracted publications to confirm the drug/event association in the literature. METHODS We defined an approach based on the medical(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the relation between the risk of Alzheimer's disease and exposure to benzodiazepines started at least five years before, considering both the dose-response relation and prodromes (anxiety, depression, insomnia) possibly linked with treatment. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING The Quebec health insurance program database(More)
An increased incidence of narcolepsy in children was detected in Scandinavian countries where pandemic H1N1 influenza ASO3-adjuvanted vaccine was used. A campaign of vaccination against pandemic H1N1 influenza was implemented in France using both ASO3-adjuvanted and non-adjuvanted vaccines. As part of a study considering all-type narcolepsy, we investigated(More)
INTRODUCTION The medicinal treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) is mostly symptomatic to relieve pain and incapacity with analgesics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), drugs with well-known risks. Complementary medicines might reduce the symptoms of OA and decrease the need for NSAIDs. This study tested the effects of a food supplement,(More)
PURPOSE To study whether reports related to known drug-event associations could hinder the detection of new signals by increasing the detection thresholds when using disporportionality analyses in spontaneous reporting (SR) databases. METHODS The French SR database (2005-2006 data) was used to test this hypothesis for the following events: bleeding,(More)
BACKGROUND Antipsychotic agents (APs) are commonly prescribed to older patients with dementia. Antipsychotic use is associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke in this population.
