What we do


The RegiSCAR project is an international research program supported by the European Union (contract n. QLG1-CT-2002-01738) collecting cases of severe adverse reactions to drugs at an European level and evaluating the role of polymorphisms in several candidate genes as risk factors for the reactions. Centro Studi GISED coordinated the project in Italy.


Results of the study were published by several scientific journals:
