Disease relevance of Patient Compliance


Psychiatry related information on Patient Compliance

  • It is effective, simple, and safe, and it permits patient cooperation with the surgeon, who can readily evaluate motor activity because the flexor and extensor extrinsic muscles of the hand are then not paralyzed [6].

High impact information on Patient Compliance


Chemical compound and disease context of Patient Compliance

  • To assess the efficacy of beta-blockers in preventing rebleeding in selected cirrhotic patients and to compare the tolerance, safety and patient compliance of a selective and a nonselective beta-blocker, 94 patients were randomly assigned to propranolol (32 patients), atenolol (32 patients) or placebo (30 patients) [12].
  • These formulations maintain therapeutic serum theophylline concentrations for prolonged periods, permitting longer dosing intervals and improved patient compliance [13].
  • Thus, nifedipine GITS represents a sound pharmacologic approach to the management of ischemic disease; and with once-daily dosing and a favorable side-effect profile this agent affords the potential for better patient compliance and efficacy without concern about the development of tolerance [14].
  • By virtue of its 12-hour dosage system, sustained-release indomethacin can be prescribed only once or twice daily, providing the anti-inflammatory efficacy of indomethacin while promoting patient compliance [15].
  • This finding may be due to the more rapid onset of an antiplatelet effect seen with the loading dose of clopidogrel, which was used in most of these studies, or to better patient compliance with clopidogrel therapy [16].
