  1. Epidemiology of diabetes mellitus in Southern Italy : a case-finding method based on drug prescriptions.

    Article - En anglais

    The study evaluates whether data concerning drug prescriptions available from the National Health System (NHS) can be used to provide an estimate of the prevalence and pattern of treatment of diabetes in a well defined health district in southern Italy.

    In Italy virtually all drug prescriptions are obtained through the NHS.

    For a period of three consecutive months all prescriptions of insulin, hypoglycemic agents and strips for blood and urine testing were monitored in a well defined area near Naples.
