Cetuximab: a review of its use in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and metastatic colorectal cancer.
Overall, cetuximab treatment had an acceptable tolerability profile, with the majority of adverse events being mild or moderate in severity and clinically manageable, and cetUXimab therapy did not exacerbate toxicities commonly associated with chemo- or radiotherapeutic regimens. Expand

Dexrazoxane : a review of its use for cardioprotection during anthracycline chemotherapy.
The cardioprotective efficacy of dexrazoxane in patients with childhood malignancies is supported by limited data, and the drug is generally well tolerated and has a tolerability profile similar to that of placebo in cancer patients undergoing anthracycline-based chemotherapy. Expand
Olmesartan medoxomil: a review of its use in the management of hypertension.
The consistent antihypertensive efficacy during the entire 24-hour dosage interval and good tolerability profile of olmesartan medoxomil, with or without HCTZ, make it a valuable option for the treatment of adult patients with hypertension, including the elderly. Expand
Telmisartan: a review of its use in the management of hypertension.
The consistent antihypertensive efficacy during the entire 24-hour dosage interval and sustained BP-lowering effect in the long term, combined with its favourable tolerability profile, mean that telmisartan is a valuable first-line treatment option for the management of essential hypertension. Expand
