In order to clarify the relation between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, a case-control study was conducted.
The case series consisted of 1,376 lung cancer patients (1,082 males and 294 females) who were newly diagnosed and admitted to eight hospitals in Osaka during 1986-88.
Smoking histories were compared with those of 2,230 controls (1,141 males and 1,089 females) admitted to the same hospitals during the same period without established smoking-related diseases.
Odds ratios of current smoker versus nonsmoker were 18.1,1.9,21.4, and 3.8 for squamous, adeno, small, and large cell carcinoma, respectively, for males, and 9.7,1.3,12.1,3.7, respectively, for females.
