Description

This activity will investigate the feasibility of conducting outcome-based TreeScan analyses within the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database (MSDD) using angioedema and Achilles tendon rupture (ATR) as test examples. This activity will assess whether TreeScan is able detect known associations at the specific drug and class level.
