The HLA-B*15:02 polymorphism and Tegretol®-induced serious cutaneous reactions in epilepsy: An updated systematic review and meta-analysis.


Tegretol® [carbamazepine (CBZ)], an aromatic drug approved for epilepsy treatment, can induce adverse drug reactions (ADRs) after its administration. Several genetic studies of epilepsy have shown that genetic polymorphisms increase the risk of ADRs, and some interactions between CBZ and other treatments can also induce adverse effects. Thus, to avoid such… (More)
