    vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor

    Modular program-based one-time assessment of the use of four different vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors by generic drug name (bevacizumab, sorafenib, sunitinib, and thalidomide) in the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database. A total of 3 different categories of counts were generated: (1) incident counts with respect to any of the four VEGF Inhibitors, (2) incident counts with respect to only the drug itself, and (3) prevalent counts (i.e., counts of users with at least one dispensing during the period of interest [2007-2010]). Modular programs are adaptable standardized programs. Results were generated using Modular Program 1; click here for more information. Programs were executed in August 2011.
