haemopoietic reactions have been reported. This number was selected for convenience and includes 52 drugs/preparations. The data presented relate to each of the above definitions.
Table 36.2 provides data for each of 5 classes of drug—non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), antibiotics, anti-psychotics, anti-depressants and anti-epileptics. The data include information on drugs listed in the relevant sections of the current British National Formulary (BNF) and older drugs in these therapeutic classes that are no longer marketed (e.g. oxyphenbutazone is included in the NSAIDs and nomifensine in the anti-depressants).
Table 36.3 provides for clozapine (the drug for which the highest number of haemopoietic reactions have been received) a breakdown of the haemopoietic reactions reported, and the number of reports for each of these reactions. Table 36.4 provides similar data for phenylbutazone.
Table 36.5 provides, for phenylbutazone, a breakdown showing the number of haemopoietic reactions reported each year since 1964.
