  1. Risk factors for second cancers of the upper respiratory and digestive systems : a case-controle study.

    Article - En anglais

    A case-control study of determinants of multiple cancers of the upper respiratory and digestive system (URDS) was conducted using a patient cohort-nested design.

    We analyzed demographic and risk factor information and clinical variables related to the index cancer for 85 cases of multiple cancers and 170 controls matched on sub-site of the index cancer of the case and date of hospital admission.

    Follow-up information for the control group was used to infer the person-years-at-risk for the cohort of 1977 patients.

    URDS cancer patients experienced a 10.7 times (95% confidence interval: 8.5-13.2) higher risk of additional related cancers than the general population.
