Researchers estimate that approximately 257,800 people are expected to die from infective endocarditis (IE) by 2030 with people who inject opioids at a greater risk, according to a study.

Researchers compared men with high frequency use with higher infection risk techniques compared to lower risk techniques for IE, and the likelihood of death as a result of IE by age 60.

For 20-year-old men the probability was 53.8% versus 3.7%; for 30-year-old men it was 51.4% versus 3.1%, and for 40-year-old men it was 44.5% versus 2.2%, respectively.

The authors suggested that “…
