Therefore detecting disease at the earliest stage and prevention of attributable risk
factors for dry eye alluded to in literature include air pollution, cigarette smoking, low humidity, high temperature, sunlight exposure, drugs, and uncorrected refractive error should be the goal so that disease progression to severe stage and serious sight threatening complications caused by severe dry eye could be prevented.
0) 12 months Table 2--Simple (n) and relative (%) frequency of children in the different quartiles of scores obtained according to the attributable risk
of cariogenic feeding practices Combined attributable risk
scores (sum of individual n (%) attributable risks
) 1st quartile (<42) 89 27.
1) NA * RR, relative risk for hospitalization; AR, attributable risk
for hospitalization; NA, not available.
The percentage of patients outside the guidelines, among those who died, was used to calculate the percent attributable risk
An attributable risk
ratio is the calculation of the percentage contribution to the particular adverse event that can be conclusively assigned to the pharmaceutical agent.
for laryngeal cancer in northern Italy.
However, the attributable risk
of developing diabetes while being treated with drug Y is much lower when compared to the risk of developing diabetes attributable to family history, being overweight, or lack of exercise.
Calculations of attributable risk
are fraught with problems.
The $50 billion amount measures the estimated additional medical costs attributable to smoking related diseases in 1993 dollars, based on estimates of smoking attributable risk
(for example, what share of each disease is due to smoking).
Because both relative risk and prevalence are high, the attributable risk
is also high.
But add up all these attributable risk
factors, and you still can't explain who gets breast cancer and who doesn't.
Major bleeding and re-infarction are both significantly associated with 30-day mortality, the attributable risk
scores with major bleeding were linked to more deaths than re-infarction (20.
The population attributable risk
of stroke or systemic embolism associated with subclinical atrial tachyarrhythmias was 13%.
Noting that reduction of the frequency of diagnostic assessments leads to underestimates of the attributable risk
, the study authors submit that deaths from Alzheimer's disease may be six times more common than official statistics indicate.
Two thirds of this variability can be explained by single-nucleotide polymorphisms in a set of 6 genes; the total percent attributable risk
estimated for this adverse outcome is 77% (26).
