    Default The key obstacles in identifying the cause of drug-induced diseases

    One important obstacle to identify the cause of drug-induced diseases is recognising the reaction as a drug-induced disease and being able to distinguish it from spontaneous, yet similar, clinical manifestations that are not drug-related.

    Another obstacle is determining the numerator (i.e., number of patients with a drug-induced disease) and denominator (i.e., population who took the drug) necessary to calculate the morbidity or mortality rate associated with a particular drug.
