    Modular program-based one-time assessment of Severe Cutaneous Adverse Reaction (SCAR) events among incident users of three different drug classes and drugs, including oxicam NSAIDs, modafinil/armodafinil, and sulfamothoxazole, in the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Datebase. Two main categories of counts were generated: 1) incident counts with respect to each of the medications, and 2) frequency of SCAR events for each exposure group per 1000 person-days at risk [January 2000 – May 2011]. Modular programs are adaptable standardized programs. Results were generated using Modular Program 3; click here for more information. Programs were executed in July 2011.
