Abstract

To the Editor: After reviewing the survey of Cocco and Cocco,1 we would like to raise several points. Of the 2840 patients receiving cimetidine during the study period, 898 (32 per cent) were excluded from analysis. Since the only information analyzed was the diagnosis, we were surprised that such a large proportion of the population was excluded from the tabulation of results. We are concerned that this omission may have led to erroneous conclusions. The purpose of the survey was to identify patterns of cimetidine use in clinical practice. Therefore, we are curious about the pattern of cimetidine use in.  . .
