Abstract:
Objective To evaluate the association of glucocorticoids and other purported risk factors with the development of tuberculosis. Methods We conducted a case-control study of tuberculosis cases identified during 1990-2001 using the General Practice Research Database in the United Kingdom. Cases were patients with a first time diagnosis of tuberculosis accompanied by at least 6 months of treatment with at least...

No direct link.

Abstract:
Background: It is unclear whether allergic diseases are associated with multiple sclerosis (MS), but histamine 1 receptor blockers, used in the treatment of allergic conditions, decreased the severity of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (an animal model of MS). Objective: To assess the association of allergy history and use of histamine 1 receptor blockers with the risk of MS. METHODS: Using a case-control study nested in the United Kingdom-based General Practice ...

Reference: Risk of nonfatal venous thromboembolism with oral contraceptives containing norgestimate or desogestrel compared with oral contraceptives containing levonorgestrel
No direct link.

Abstract:
Context Previous studies have reported that users of the ‘third-generation’ oral contraceptives (OCs) containing the progestins gestodene and desogestrel have about twice the risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) compared to users of older OCs containing levonorgestrel. Estimates of the risk for VTE among users of norgestimate-containing OCs compared to ot...

Reference: Antibiotic use and risk of multiple sclerosis
No direct link.

Abstract:
Some reports suggest that bacteria, including Chlamydophila pneumoniae, could be involved in the etiology of multiple sclerosis. If that is true, persons who used antibiotics active against these bacteria, compared with nonusers, might be at lower risk of multiple sclerosis. Using a 1993-2000 case-control study nested in the United Kingdom-based General Practice Research Database cohort, the authors identified 163 multiple sclerosis cases who were followed up for at least 3 years before ...

Reference: Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in users of four hormonal contraceptives: 
levonorgestrel-containing oral contraceptives, norgestimate-containing oral contraceptives, 
desogestrel-containing oral contraceptives and the contraceptive patch
No direct link.


Abstract:
Background It has been suggested that the risk for cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) 
may be greater among users of the contraceptive patch than among users of oral contraceptives (OCs). 
Methods From the PharMetrics database, we identified women aged 15–44 years who filled at least one prescription
for either the contraceptive...

Abstract:
Study Objective. To assess the risk of long-term use of five nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)—rofecoxib, celecoxib, ibuprofen, naproxen, and diclofenac—in relation to acute myocardial infarction. Design. Five separate nested case-control studies, one for each NSAID, designed to minimize important biases present in other observational studies. Setting. University-affiliated research program. Data So...
