Cutaneous reactions induced by oxcarbazepine in Southern Han Chinese: Incidence, features, risk factors and relation to HLA-B alleles

Abstract

PURPOSE Oxcarbazepine (OXC) is a promising alternative for patients who cannot tolerate carbamazepine. Recently, however, it has been reported that OXC-induced cutaneous adverse drug reactions (cADRs) are prevalent and may lead to drug discontinuation. Additionally, these reactions are thought to be associated with HLA-B*1502. This study aims to investigate… (More)
