Charles M. Beasley, Jr and Roy Tamura: What We Know and Do Not Know by Conventional Statistical Standards About Whether a Drug Does or Does Not Cause a Specific Side Effect (Adverse Drug Reaction)


Hector Warnes’ response 2 to Charles Beasley’s response


        I am most impressed and overwhelmed by Charles Beasley's research paper. He has provided us with all the basic necessary, sufficient and contingent variables to be considered in a good practice by the clinical pharmacologist.

        Usually all the possible side effects listed and read before prescribing any drug are not enough in order to take precautionary measures given the multiple variables to be considered, including the facts of polypharmacy, individual response specificity and co-morbidity. I congratulate Professor Beasley for his outstanding contribution.
