Iatrogenic disease in haematology
digital file Colour Sound 1975 26:27
Summary: A detailed review of the ways in which chemicals, in the form of therapeutic drugs, can affect cell metabolism, interact with each other, and interfere with laboratory tests. Examples from haemotology are considered in each of these catagories. Drugs well known for their tendency to cause aplasia and haemolytic anaemia are mentioned in the context of how widely they are prescribed, with illustrations of these side-effects and discussion of the circumstances in which they may occur. 5 segments.

Further information: This tape is one of more than 120 titles, originally broadcast on Channel 7 of the ILEA closed-circuit television network, given to Wellcome Trust from the University of London Audio-Visual Centre shortly after it closed in the late 1980s. Although some of these programmes might now seem rather out-dated, they probably represent the largest and most diversified body of medical video produced in any British university at this time, and give a comprehensive and fascinating view of the state of medical and surgical research and practice in the 1970s and early 1980s, thus constituting a contemporary medical-historical archive of great interest.
