“Trapped in the 'K-hole': overview of deaths associated with ketamine misuse in the UK 1993-2006”.
J Clin Psychopharmacol. 2008 Feb 21;28(1):114-6.
Because of the paucity of ketamine misuse mortality data, the aim of this report was to focus on those figures that were available for the UK 1993–2006. To gather together all the available ketamine misuse mortality figures, 2 different approaches were combined: a data were extracted from the National Programme on Substance Abuse Deaths np-SAD database, St George’s, University of London for the time frame July 1997 to December2006 b data based on drug-poisoning mortality statistics published by the General Register Offices GROs for England/Wales and Scotland were collected,together with data provided to the np-SAD by the GRO for North Ireland from January 1993 to December 2006.
