Cigarette smoking is the most consistently reported risk factor for pancreas cancer, yet the dose-response relationship in many pancreas cancer studies is weak.
Because of the poor prognosis for pancreas cancer, many case-ontrol studies have been based largely on interviews with proxy respondents, who are known to report less reliable information on detailed smoking habits than original subjects.
Our purpose was to evaluate cigarette smoking as a risk factor for pancreas cancer based on data obtained only from direct interviews and to estimate the effects of quitting smoking and of switching from nonfiltered to filtered cigarettes on risk.
