Radon may be second only to smoking as a cause of lung cancer. The combination of smoking and radon exposure results in an especially serious health risk. The risk of lung cancer due to indoor radon exposure can be decreased with current technology. This monograph is one in a series of self. Book: Radon dosimetry for a lung cancer study in Missouri. Background: Several case-control studies have indicated an increased risk of lung cancer linked to indoor radon exposure; others have not supported this hypothesis, partly because of a lack of statistical power. As part of a large European project, a hospital-based case-control study was carried out in 4 areas in France with relatively high radon levels. sure and lung cancer. The case-control study design over-comes many of the limitations inherent in ecologic stud-ies (). Ten of the more rigorously designed case-control studies published to date () have not shown a consistent pattern regarding the association between radon exposure, cigarette smoking, and lung cancer.

Lung cancer risk in relation to indoor radon was examined in three case-control studies in Stockholm (Sweden), New Jersey (United States), and Shenyang (People's Republic of China).

InWilcox et al. reported the results of a case–control study on radon and lung cancer in New Jersey, United States. A total of lung cancer cases and controls contributed to the analysis of radon exposure and. Regarding lung cancer, the evidence on the interaction of radon and its decay products with cigarette smoking does not lead to a simple conclusion.

The data from the largest study are consistent with a multiplicative or sub-multiplicative model of synergisms and reject an additive model. Results. Our analysis included people with lung cancer and 14 controls. For cases of lung cancer the mean measured radon concentration was Bq/m 3 while for controls the weighted average of the study specific means, with weights proportional to numbers of cases of lung cancer, was 97 Bq/m 3 (table 1).Among controls, the percentage who were lifelong non-smokers increased as radon Cited by: In this study, we attempted to reduce existing uncertainty about the relative risk of lung cancer from residential radon exposure among hensive measurements of domestic radon were performed for never-smoking lung cancer cases and never-smoking controls from five Swedish case-control studies.

Active smoking became the most common cause of lung cancer during the 20th century [], and several studies have been established that approximately 90 % of all lung cancers occur among smokers [27–31].Thus, considering the possible interaction with smoking is important when investigating the effect of radon exposure on lung cancer Cited by: Based on results reported by the original investigators, the excess odds ratios for lung cancer at a radon concentration of Bq/m 3 ranged from − in Shenyang, China, to in New Jersey ().Although excess odds ratios for all but 2 studies (West Germany and Shenyang, China) were positive, confidence limits included the null value of zero in all but 4 studies (Iowa, the Swedish.

To evaluate the association of indoor radon exposure with lung cancer risk, yearlong a track detector measurements of radon were conducted in dwellings which had been occupied for at least 10 years by New Jersey female lung cancer cases and controls who were subjects in a larger population-based study.

Various studies have analyzed cost-effective detection and prevention strategies. 57,58 In a review of measures in the United Kingdom, Gray and coworkers concluded that, since even low to moderate concentrations of radon can cause lung cancer, the most cost-effective policy is to apply basic anti-radon measures in all new dwellings, instead of.

Eleven comprehensive studies of underground miners exposed to radioactive radon gas and its alpha-particle emitting decay products all found that exposure increases the risk of dying of lung cancer [reviewed in (1)].As a consequence, when it was found that radon could accumulate in houses, albeit at concentrations usually much lower than in mines, there was concern about a possible Cited by:.
