  1. Simple past tense and past participle of induce.

Usage notes

  • In medical and other technical fields, and in mainstream reportage of medical and other such topics, the participle induced is particularly often found as the latter half of a compound functioning as an adjective, the first half of the compound being either an agent (identifying a person or thing that is inducing) or an instrument (identifying a thing that is used to induce); hence drug-induced, panic-induced, radiation-induced, and so on. In some cases, induced may even appear on its own as an adjective, as in induced abortion.
