Many different mutations affecting G6PD cause enzyme deficiency. The Mediterranean type G6PD deficiency (about 3 to 5 percent of American males of Greek, Italian, or Sardinian ancestry) is more severe than the Negro type (about 15 percent of American black males); thus, a larger number of oxidizing drugs are a threat. Beutler (1978) has published a painstaking analysis of the primary literature and the drug/infection interactions in an effort to determine which drugs are a significant hazard in G6PD-deficient individuals and which can, in fact, be given safely in usual therapeutic doses.
