Study links asthma and allergic rhinitis with cataracts

(Wiley) In a study that investigated the association between allergic diseases and ophthalmologic diseases in 14,776 adults, asthma and allergic rhinitis were each associated with a 50 percent increased likelihood of having cataracts. Atopic dermatitis was not linked with cataracts in the Journal of Dermatology study, however.

iro A Abstract Advances on nanometrology require reliable sample pre-treatment methods for extracting/isolating nanomaterials from complex samples. The current development deals with a discontinuous ultrasonication (60% amplitude, 15 cycles of ultrasound treatment for 59 s plus relaxing stage for 59 s, 20 mL of methanol) method for a fast and quantitative extraction of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) from moisturizing creams. Possibilities offered by modern inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) which allow 'single particle' assessment (sp-ICP-MS) have been used for Ag NPs assessment (Ag NPs con...

Authors: Dall'Oglio F, Lacarrubba F, Luca M, Boscaglia S, Granger C, Micali G Abstract Purpose: Topical agents play a key role in the management of facial seborrheic dermatitis (SD) by reducing inflammation and scale production. The aim of this open-label trial was to assess the efficacy and tolerability of a new non-corticosteroid, antifungal/anti-inflammatory/antiseborrheic cream containing piroctone olamine, stearyl glycyrrhetinate, and zinc PCA in the treatment of facial SD using clinical and instrumental evaluation. Patients and methods: Twenty adult subjects affected by mild-to-moderate inflamed facial SD...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common inflammatory skin condition during childhood. It is reported to affect more than 10% of children in the United States. It usually has its onset before 2 years of age, and more than 50% of cases resolve by adolescence. The disease often has a chronic waxing and waning course and is known to be part of the atopic triad, which also includes asthma and allergic rhinitis. Mild AD cases are generally treated with emollients, avoidance of irritants, and topical anti-inflammatory therapies. Among the estimated 10 million children affected with AD in the United States, approximately 30% have moder...

This study investigated the association between allergic diseases and comorbid ophthalmologic diseases. We enrolled 14 776 participants who were at least 19 years of age. Multiple logistic regression analyses were used to evaluate the odds ratios for cataracts and glaucoma according to the presence of allergic diseases. Atopic dermatitis was not associated with the development of cataracts and glaucoma. However, asthma and allergic rhinitis were significantly associated with cataracts (hazard ratio [HR] = 1.511, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.120–2.039 and HR = 1.565, 95% CI = 1.192–2.054, respectively).
