    ABSTRACT: A case-control study with time-related factors was conducted to estimate the latency period of lung cancer. This study included 168 incident male cases of lung cancer histologically confirmed and 336 control patients with non-neoplastic diseases. All patients were interviewed in the hospital wards from May 1987 to May 1990. Data concerning smoking, occupation, method of house heating and cooking fuel used from twelve time windows of looking forward and diet were obtained for three periods of time. A synthetical analysis of forward measures and backward measures were applied. By means of calculating accumulated effective exposure score and excess exposure fraction, the latency period of lung cancer was estimated using multivariate model. Latency of lung cancer is 54.48 years for indoor air pollution, and 56.17 years for total smoking. From estimating latency period of lung cancer from multivariate analysis, it was found that the latency of lung cancer could be affected by the effects of other factors. Therefore, measures which prolong latency period may be of use in the prevention of lung cancer.

    ABSTRACT: A case-control study was carried out in Harbin city to assess the role of diet in the aetiology of colorectal cancer. A total of 336 incident cases of histologically confirmed colorectal cancer (111 colon cancer and 225 rectal cancer) and an equal number of controls with other non-neoplastic diseases were interviewed in hospital wards. Data concerning the average frequency of consumption and amount consumed of single food items were obtained by a dietary history questionnaire. Odds ratios and their confidence limits were computed. Multiple regression for risk status was also used. Vegetables, particularly green vegetables, chives and celery, have a strong protective effect against colorectal cancer. Reduced consumption of meat, eggs, bean products and grain was associated with increasing risk for cancer of the rectum. Alcohol intake was found to be an important risk factor for developing colon cancer and male rectal cancer.
