Abstract:
Aims To explore further a recent finding that long-term users of diclofenac are at increased risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) similar to users of rofecoxib and celecoxib. Methods Using the General Practice Research Database, we conducted three separate nested case–control studies of three nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) where use started after 1 January 1993 — diclofenac, ibuprofen and naproxen. Cases of AMI were identified b...

Abstract:
Context In 2006, we published a study that indicated that the new transdermal contraceptive patch containing ethinyl estradiol (EE) and the progestin norelgestromin did not increase the risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) compared to oral contraceptive containing norgestimate and 35 g of EE. Objective This report updates informatio...

No direct link.

Abstract:
Purpose Many pharmacoepidemiologic studies use automated prescription claims data to estimate the association between exposure and disease. One limitation of automated data, when studying drugs that are also available via retail, is that over-the-counter (OTC) exposure is missed. The purpose of this s...

Abstract:
Background: Previous observational studies have reported a higher risk of stroke in migraine patients. Objective.—We aimed to estimate the risk of stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), or death in migraineurs in the UK. Method.—We conducted a population-based follow-up study within the General Practice Research Database from 1994 to 2001. Results.—The relative risk (RR) of stroke in migraineurs compared with non-mi...

No direct link.

Abstract:
Existing data on the incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the UK have some limitations. Few studies have reported age- and sex-specific incidence rates of MS, and none of those is based on a large sample of the general population. Further, no published reports have provided age- and sex-specific incidence rates of MS by clinical course from onset. To estimate the age- and sex-specific incidence rate and lifetime risk of multiple ...
