Oxaliplatin-based regimens induce a potential risk of hypersensitivity reaction (HSR), with incidence varying from 10% to 25% and lack of clearly identified risk factors. The present study aimed to assess incidence and risk factors in HSR. All patients treated with oxaliplatin in the Medical Oncology Department of the Lyon Sud University Hospital (Hospices(More)
BACKGROUND Even though anticancer drugs are prepared in dedicated pharmaceutical units, nurses remain exposed to cytotoxic agents during administration to patients. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess this occupational exposure during the intravenous line-purging procedure at the patient's bedside before administration in oncology departments.(More)
BACKGROUND To reduce the occurrence of medication errors, a systemic approach was developed combining anti-neoplastic medication error reviews and morbidity and mortality conferences (M&MCs). We report the first experience of implementing this strategy in oncology. METHODS The case reports submitted to combined reviews were prepared by physicians and(More)

However, MEs still occur at each step in the anticancer chemotherapy process, particularly when injections are prepared in the hospital pharmacy. This study assessed whether a ME simulation program would help prevent ME-associated iatrogenic(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the impact of investigational drug labels on the risk of medication error in drug dispensing.
