Other risk factors include medical conditions and certain drugs. Although individuals may have several risk factors, controls have significantly fewer than cataract patients of the same age. This difference in the number of risk factors is also age-related, as is the degree of divergence from the normal range in the concentrations of several plasma constituents. 1984 Human cataract formation Pitman, London (Ciba Foundation symposium 106) p 25-47 Cataract is a major cause of blindness in man, with grave personal, social and economic consequences.

The first study of the project, a case-control investigation based in Raipur, has been completed. The findings are striking. The results demonstrate a powerful ‘dose-dependent’relationship between severe diarrhoeal disease and the risk of presenile cataract. The findings suggest that persons exposed to two or more episodes of cholera-like diarrhoeal disease may have 21 times higher risk of developing cataract at a relatively young age, and that about 36% of the cases of cataract may be related to severe diarrhoeal disease.

Hockwin: I agree with Dr Minassian that it is not necessary to follow a control group. g. in terms of age) with respect to the statistic that was applied. On this second evaluation, where you introduce the influence of age on several parameters of the blood chemistry, it is interesting to see the changes with age and the importance of the risk factors at different ages. With respect to single risk factors, you have adequate in vivo classification of lens opacities, but I don’t know whether you analysed the individual types of opacities in relation to the risk factors?
