Cancer diagnosis in first-degree relatives and non-small cell lung cancer risk: Results from a multi-centre case-control study in Europe.

Abstract : Because aggregation of cancers at different sites can occur in families, cancer could be considered as a broad phenotype with shared genetic factors. Here, we report results from a multi-centre case-control study of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with particular emphasis on a history of cancer in first-degree relatives and the risk of lung cancer. From 2002 to 2006, 733 NSCLC patients treated surgically were recruited in 8 European countries and matched to 1312 controls, by centre, sex and age. We used multivariate conditional logistic regression models to test the association between a history of cancer in first-degree relatives and risk of NSCLC. A family history of lung cancer was associated with an odds ratio (OR) for early-onset (54years or younger) NSCLC of 4.72 (95% confidence interval [CI]=1.02-21.90). A family history of gastric cancer was associated with an OR for NSCLC of 1.82 (95% CI=1.08-3.06) and for late-onset (55years or older) NSCLC of 2.92 (95% CI=1.10-7.75). Our findings provide further evidence of a familial predisposition to lung cancer and support the hypothesis that family history is a significant risk factor for the disease. Because of the inherent potential for bias in familial case-control study design, cautious interpretation is warranted.
