Atopic eczema wasn’t tied to a significantly increased risk for most cancers, according to research from England and Denmark.

In an English matched-cohort of nearly 500,000 individuals with atopic eczema, there was little evidence to suggest an association between eczema and overall cancer incidence (adjusted hazard ratio [aHR] 1.04, 99% CI 1.02-1.06), reported Kathryn Mansfield, PhD, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and colleagues.
