  1. Fulltext. Familial risk of lung cancer among nonsmokers and their relatives.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    The role of family history of lung cancer in predicting lung cancer risk among nonsmokers and their relatives was evaluated in a population-based family study conducted in metropolitan Detroit.

    Lung cancer risk factor data were collected through telephone interviews with 257 nonsmoking lung cancer cases 40-84 years of age diagnosed between 1984 and 1987, their 2,252 relatives, 277 nonsmoking controls, and their 2,408 relatives.

    Lung cancer in a first-degree relative was associated with a 7.2-fold (95% confidence interval 1.3-39.7) increased risk of lung cancer among nonsmokers in the 40-to 59-year-old age group.

    This significant increased risk remained after adjustment for the smoking, occupational, and medical history of each family member (relative risk=6.1,95% confidence interval 1.1-33.4).

    Offspring of nonsmoking cases comprised another lung cancer high risk group (relative risk=7.2,95% confidence interval 0.5-103).

    A positive family history did not increase lung cancer risk among nonsmokers 60-84 years of age or their relatives.

    These findings suggest that susceptibility to lung cancer in families of nonsmoking cases may be evident only in a subset of relatives of early-onset nonsmoking cases.
