These databases can be used to access national and international data that can help
answer some of the outstanding questions of cancer-related outcomes (positive or negative)
associated with pharmaceuticals. Some of the databases are linked to a table of data elements, which provides a snapshot of the
material contained therein.
These nationally representative public and private surveys may contain information on
pharmaceutical use and disease risk factors and status, which may be useful for
pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomic studies. Some surveys may also be linked to
other surveys or registries.
These large epidemiological studies contain detailed information on pharmaceutical use
and disease risk, including cancer. These studies may assist in evaluating associations
between certain pharmaceuticals and disease risk.
