The article reports on the research that ethnicity is a factor in adverse reactions to cardiovascular drugs. The study conducted by the researchers from Birmingham set about a systematic review and meta-analysis on two ethnic groups. Out of the 364 total studies which gave some description of ethnicity and an adverse reaction, 132 are related to cardiovascular drugs, while data for adverse reactions for at least two ethnic groups in 24 studies were found.
