The occurrence of hypersensitivity reactions including rare but life-threatening Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome (HSS) limits the use of the anticonvulsant carbamazepine (CBZ). Human leukocyte antigen-B (HLA)-B 15:02 and HLA-A 31:01 have been identified as predictive genetic markers...
