Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in US Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 years and older: incidence, prevalence, and survival, 2001-11.
TLDR
The incidence and prevalence of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in people aged 65 years and older in the USA are substantially higher than previously reported, and prevalence is increasing annually, even in the subgroups based on more restrictive algorithms for diagnosis.
Incidence of Herpes Zoster and Persistent Post-Zoster Pain in Adults With or Without Diabetes in the United States
TLDR
Individuals with diabetes had 45% and 18% higher adjusted risk of HZ and odds of PPZP, respectively, compared with individuals with diabetes without diabetes.
Evaluation of Cardiovascular Morbidity Associated with Adherence to Atorvastatin Therapy
TLDR
Patients who adhered to atorvastatin treatment were at lower CV risk and quality-of-care interventions should target improvements to therapy persistence.
Incidence and prevalence of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in US adults 18–64 years old
TLDR
In US adults younger than 65 years, the authors observed a decreasing incidence of IPF over time which may partially explain the plateau of cumulative prevalence in the last few years of their data.
One-year adherence to warfarin treatment for venous thromboembolism in high-risk patients and its association with long-term risk of recurrent events.
TLDR
Adherence to a year of therapy was low in patients at high risk of recurrent VTE, even though long-term therapy should be considered in this population, and Kaplan-Meier curves showed that patients who were compliant or continued warfarin therapy were less likely to experience a VTE event.
Antiepileptic drug treatment patterns and economic burden of commercially-insured patients with refractory epilepsy with partial onset seizures in the United States
TLDR
Pattern of use was very dynamic, suggesting seizures are not well-controlled, suggesting improving seizure control and reducing economic burden of refractory epilepsy remain important unmet medical needs in this population.
Health-Related Quality of Life in Patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
TLDR
People with IPF report substantial deficits in HRQOL across a range of PROMIS domains, and deficits vary by dyspnea and cough severity, which warrant monitoring in clinical practice and consideration when investigating new therapies.
Modest increase in risk of specific types of cancer types in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients
TLDR
Subjects with DM in this population have a modest increased risk of cancer, similar to the Caucasian population for several specific types of cancer.
Health care resource use and costs among patients with cushing disease.
TLDR
Patients with Cushing disease had more comorbidities than patients with nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas or control patients and incurred significantly higher annual health care costs; these costs decreased after successful surgery and increased after unsuccessful surgery.
An evaluation of health-related quality of life in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus using PROMIS and Neuro-QoL
TLDR
These patients reported substantial deficits that correlated with their SLE disease severity, with pain being an important independent contributor and these deficits should be monitored in SLE patients during their routine clinical care and evaluated when investigating new therapies.
