In a population-based case-control study of the association between use of diuretics and renal cell cancer, 120 white men whose cancer was diagnosed during the years 1980-1991 and 86 white women diagnosed in 1960-1991 were identified among members of the Kaiser Permanente Northwest health plan.
Controls were plan members who had been individually matched to cases on sex, race, age, and time period in the plan.
Data on diuretic use and other selected variables were abstracted from outpatient and inpatient medical records.
In an analysis confined to exposures present at least 2 years before case diagnosis, the odds ratios associated with any use of a diuretic drug were 2.2 (95% confidence interval 1.2-3.9) for men and 1.8 (95% confidence interval 1.01 - 3.2) for women.
