Conference paper


Burleson [1] and Helling et al. [2] have reviewed the use of computers to study clinical drug use. The usual emphasis in this kind of study is on evaluating drug usage for appropriateness, suitability of dosage, and the like. Closer to the objectives of the present investigation was a comparison of drugs prescribed for diabetics with those given nondiabetics [3].
