Conclusion.More than 21% of admissions to an oncology service are ADR‐related. ADRs are caused by both SACTs and non‐cancer‐specific medications. The majority are predictable; ≥60% may be preventable. Patients with cancer have high levels of multimorbidity and polypharmacy, which require vigilance for related adverse outcomes.Implications for Practice.A diagnosis of cancer often occurs in patients with multimorbidity and polypharmacy. Cancer can cause an altered physiological environment, placing patients at risk of drug‐drug interactions, drug‐disease interactions, and adverse drug reactions (ADRs). This stud...

CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort of women with vulvar diseases, vitamin D levels and supplementation were not significantly different amongst women with vulvar lichen sclerosus or other non-lichenoid vulvar diseases. Furthermore, vitamin D levels are not serum biomarkers for OAB, urinary incontinence, constipation, or IBS. PMID: 30747611 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
