Background It has been suggested that vaccination against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) is a cause of autism. Methods We conducted a retrospective cohort study of.
Centre for Clinical Epidemiology, Lady Davis Institute, Jewish General Hospital, 3. C. All incident cases of bladder cancer occurring during follow- up were identified and matched to up to 2. Exposure was defined as ever use of pioglitazone, along with measures of duration and cumulative dosage.
Main outcome measure Risk of incident bladder cancer associated with use of pioglitazone. Results The cohort included 1.
The 3. 76 cases of bladder cancer that were diagnosed beyond one year of follow- up were matched to 6. Overall, ever use of pioglitazone was associated with an increased rate of bladder cancer (rate ratio 1.
The rate increased as a function of duration of use, with the highest rate observed in patients exposed for more than 2. Conclusion The use of pioglitazone is associated with an increased risk of incident bladder cancer among people with type 2 diabetes. Introduction. The safety of pioglitazone, an oral antidiabetic agent in the thiazolidinedione class, is controversial. Although pioglitazone is effective at reducing glycated haemoglobin (Hb. A1c) levels and may decrease the risk of cardiovascular events,1. Although available data are limited, there is now some evidence suggesting that pioglitazone may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer.
In the Prospective Pioglitazone Clinical Trial in Macrovascular Events (PROactive) trial, the reported incidence of bladder cancer was higher among participants randomised to pioglitazone than among those randomised to placebo (1. P=0. 0. 69). 1 However, it was later reported that one case in the placebo group showed benign histology,6 and the exclusion of this case resulted in a statistically significant increased risk of bladder cancer (1. With respect to observational studies, a signal was observed in the US Food and Drug Administration adverse event reporting system. Furthermore, an interim analysis of an ongoing US cohort did not find an association between pioglitazone and bladder cancer overall but found a 4. In contrast, a modest increased risk was observed overall in a French cohort. Based on these findings, France decided to suspend the sale of pioglitazone, whereas Germany and Luxembourg recommended that doctors should not start new patients on this drug.
After carrying out a review of the safety of pioglitazone, the European Medicines Agency decided to maintain the marketing authorisation of the drug,8 whereas the FDA and Health Canada added warnings of a possible increased risk of bladder cancer in the product monograph. Two subsequently published Taiwanese studies found no statistically significant association between pioglitazone and bladder cancer. All of the aforementioned studies included prevalent users of antidiabetic drugs, which may have underestimated the strength of the association between pioglitazone and bladder cancer. As available data on the reported association between pioglitazone and bladder cancer are limited, additional studies are needed to inform regulatory agencies, doctors, and patients on its long term safety.
We carried out a population based study to determine if pioglitazone is associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer in people with type 2 diabetes. Methods. This study was carried out using the UK general practice research database, the world’s largest computerised database of longitudinal records from primary care.
It contains the complete primary care medical record of more than 1. The geographical distribution of the practices has been shown to be representative of the UK population, and age and sex distributions of patients in the database are similar to those reported by the national population census. Participating general practitioners have been trained to record medical information, including demographic data, medical diagnoses, procedures, and deaths using a standardised form. Prescriptions issued by doctors using the general practice research database are automatically transcribed into the computer record.
In addition, the database collects information on lifestyle variables such as body mass index, and quantitative and qualitative data pertaining to smoking and alcohol use. The Read classification is used to enter medical diagnoses and procedures, and prescriptions are recorded based on the UK Prescription Pricing Authority Dictionary. The recorded information on diagnoses and drug use has been validated and proved to be of high quality. Study population.
