1. Study identification
EU PAS Register NumberEUPAS7549
Official titleEpidemiology of acute hepatotoxicity from medicines
Study title acronymEPIHAM
Study typeObservational study
Brief description of the studyEPIHAM is to identify in the national healthcare databases all hospital admissions for toxic or unexplained liver injuries. It will be done within the French national health care systems databases, which include all reimbursed health-care expenses, and all hospital admissions with ICD-10 coded admission diagnoses. The overall methodological approach will be initially that of a case-population study to compare event rates with those found in SALT. This will be completed by other methods: a case-crossover approach, a classical case-control study, and a propensity-score adjusted or matched cohort study of products selected from the case-population data. The routines created for this project may be reused to set up regular surveillance of drug-related hepatic disorders in the French population
