Isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic may lead to deterioration in comorbidities and mental health, according to two studies presented at the European Society of Endocrinology virtual conference (e-ECE 2021).

In the treatment of patients with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy, half-dose photodynamic therapy (PDT) appears to have superior short-term safety and efficacy compared with eplerenone, according to preliminary data from SPECTRA.
Administering extraocular muscle injection of botulinum toxin type A (BTXA) to individuals with nonparalytic, nonrestrictive horizontal strabismus yields a high rate of successful motor alignment similar to that achieved with eye muscle surgery, according to the results of a systematic review and meta-analysis.
