Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors are currently considered to consist of three grades of malignancy, ranging from typical and atypical carcinoids to large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma and small-cell carcinoma. The study reported here is the first population-based study of the demographics of patients with neuroendocrine tumors grouped by histological(More)
The genetic susceptibility hypothesis has been used to explain why only a minority of smokers develop lung cancer. Only few studies have studied the role of polymorphisms in phase-I and II metabolizing genes, among young lung cancer patients. We have pooled the individual data of three studies from Denmark and Norway, including 320 patients diagnosed with(More)
This is a registry-based analysis of 97,281 lung cancer patients diagnosed in Denmark during the period 1943-1994. The development of lung cancer incidence in Denmark in the study period is described and this information is used to predict the future trends in lung cancer in Denmark. Since 1960, lung cancer has been the most frequent type of cancer in(More)
Mobile devices are playing an increasingly intimate role in everyday life. However, users can be surprised when informed of the data collection and distribution activities of apps they install. We report on two studies of smartphone users in western European countries, in which users were confronted with app behaviors and their reactions assessed. Users(More)
PURPOSE The survival probability of patients with lung cancer is usually based on the extent of disease as assessed at the time of diagnosis. The discouraging 5-year survival is often reported (< 10%) without taking into account changes in the survival probability as time advances from diagnosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Conditional survival estimates by sex,(More)
Recent reports have raised the question, whether the previously observed protective effects of high intake of fruit and vegetables on the risk of lung cancer were due to insufficient adjustment for smoking leading to residual confounding. Association of intake of fruit and vegetables on lung cancer risk was examined, using the Danish prospective cohort(More)
The objective of the study was to examine the prognostic effect of dietary intake of fruit and vegetables on lung cancer patients. We used data on 57,053 participants in the Danish prospective cohort study, 'Diet, Cancer and Health'. Patients in whom lung cancer was diagnosed constituted the final study cohort and were followed from the date of diagnosis(More)
Low-radiation-dose computed tomography (low-dose CT) is a new, promising technology presently used in screening for lung cancer in some medical centres in the USA and Japan. The three population-based studies of the efficacy of screening with low-dose CT published to date all show that more than 85% of the lung cancers detected by low-dose CT are in stage(More)
We examined whether women's survival from lung cancer is influenced by hormonal factors associated with reproductive events. In all 4235 women and 4797 men born on 1 January 1935 or later with lung cancer diagnosed in 1978-1999 were identified in the Danish Cancer Registry and followed up to 31 December 2002 by linkage to the Central Population Registry.(More)
OBJECTIVE Allergic or pseudo-allergic reactions to drugs are common complaints. The symptoms vary from mild to life threatening. Although the mechanisms for most drug reactions are unknown or uncertain such reactions are believed to be more common among atopic individuals. Our goal was: 1) To estimate the prevalence of allergic and pseudo-allergic drug(More)
