Regular aspirin intake linked to age-related macular degeneration

(January 21, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Australia – Regular aspirin use may increase risk of age-related macular degeneration, according to a report published in JAMA Internal Medicine. Researchers studied over 2,300 individuals for 15 years. Just over 10% of participants were regular aspirin users.  Results showed that the cumulative incidence of AMD for regular aspirin users was 2% at 5 years, 7% at 10 years, and 9% at 15 years. The cumulative incidence for non-users, by comparison, was .8% at 5 years, nearly 2% at 10 years and 4% at 15 years.
