    • Background The association between alcohol intake and risk of renal cell cancer has been inconsistent in case-control studies. An inverse association between alcohol intake and risk of renal cell cancer has been suggested in a few prospective studies, but each of these studies included a small number of cases. Methods We performed a pooled analysis of 12 prospective studies that included 530469 women and 229575 men with maximum follow-up times of 7-20 years. All participants had completed a validated food-frequency questionnaire at baseline. Using the primary data from each study, the study-specific relative risks (RRs) for renal cell cancer were calculated using Cox proportional hazards models and then pooled using a random-effects model. All statistical tests were two-sided. Results A total of 1430 (711 women and 719 men) cases of incident renal cell cancer were identified. The study-standardized incidence rates of renal cell cancer were 23 per 100000 person-years among nondrinkers and 15 per 100000 person-years among those who drank 15 g/day or more of alcohol. Compared with non-drinking, alcohol consumption (>= 15 g/day, equivalent to slightly more than one alcoholic drink per day) was associated with a decreased risk of renal cell cancer (pooled multivariable RR = 0.72, 95% confidence interval = 0.60 to 0.86; P-trend <.001); statistically significant inverse trends with increasing intake were seen in both women and men. No difference by sex was observed (P-heterogeneity = .89). Associations between alcohol intake and renal cell cancer were not statistically different across alcoholic beverage type (beer versus wine versus liquor) (P = .40). Conclusion Moderate alcohol consumption was associated with a lower risk of renal cell cancer among both women and men in this pooled analysis.

    • With the growing number of epidemiologic publications on the relation between dietary factors and cancer risk, pooled analyses that summarize results from multiple studies are becoming more common. Here, the authors describe the methods being used to summarize data on diet-cancer associations within the ongoing Pooling Project of Prospective Studies of Diet and Cancer, begun in 1991. In the Pooling Project, the primary data from prospective cohort studies meeting prespecified inclusion criteria are analyzed using standardized criteria for modeling of exposure, confounding, and outcome variables. In addition to evaluating main exposure-disease associations, analyses are also conducted to evaluate whether exposure-disease associations are modified by other dietary and nondietary factors or vary among population subgroups or particular cancer subtypes. Study-specific relative risks are calculated using the Cox proportional hazards model and then pooled using a random- or mixed-effects model. The study-specific estimates are weighted by the inverse of their variances in forming summary estimates. Most of the methods used in the Pooling Project may be adapted for examining associations with dietary and nondietary factors in pooled analyses of case-control studies or case-control and cohort studies combined.

  • Serum sialic acid and its correlates in community samples from Akita, Japan and Minneapolis, USA
  • 1997
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Epidemiology. - : Oxford University Press. - 1464-3685. ; 26:1, s. 58-63
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: The concentration of serum total sialic acid (S-TSA) is one recently investigated risk marker for cardiovascular mortality and atherosclerosis. Since the mortality from coronary heart disease is higher in the United States than in Japan, one could expect the S-TSA to be higher among Caucasian US citizens than among Japanese citizens, a hypothesis that is tested in this study. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study of population-based samples of Japanese and US Caucasian men and women. SETTING: The rural community Akita, Japan, and the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. SUBJECTS: These were 75 consecutive men and women from Akita and Minneapolis respectively aged 47-69 years in 1990. People who had smoked cigarettes during the past 5 years; who had a history of diabetes mellitus, liver disease, coronary heart disease, or stroke; or who were taking anticoagulants were excluded. OUTCOME MEASURES: Serum total sialic acid levels in male and female Japanese and US Caucasian subjects with adjustment for age, systolic blood pressure, fibrinogen, triglycerides and in women also for menopausal status. Race and sex-specific correlations with serum total sialic acid for selected cardiovascular risk markers. RESULTS: The entire sialic acid distributions were shifted to the right in Caucasian men and women compared to Japanese men and women. The mean +/- standard deviation concentrations of S-TSA were 54.1 +/- 5.3 mg/dl in Japanese men and 58.7 +/- 5.6 mg/dl in Caucasian men (P < 0.001). In women, the concentrations were 54.8 +/- 5.1 and 63.1 +/- 6.0 mg/dl respectively (P < 0.001). S-TSA level correlated significantly and positively with fibrinogen levels in Caucasian and Japanese men and women and with triglyceride levels in Caucasian and Japanese men and in Caucasian women but not in Japanese women. After adjustment for age, systolic blood pressure, fibrinogen, triglycerides and menopausal status, the sialic acid levels were 2.2 (P = 0.009) and 6.2 (P < 0.001) mg/dl higher in Caucasian compared to Japanese men and women respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Higher S-TSA levels in Caucasians living in Minneapolis compared to Japanese living in Akita, Japan is in concordance with the higher cardiovascular mortality in the US. Differences in S-TSA levels may reflect international differences in the prevalence of atherosclerosis.

  • The association between serum sialic acid and asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis is not related to antibodies to herpes type viruses or Chlamydia pneumoniae. The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study Investigators
  • 1997
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Epidemiology. - : Oxford University Press. - 1464-3685. ; 26:6, s. 1386-1391
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Total serum sialic acid is a recently investigated marker for cardiovascular mortality and carotid atherosclerosis. This study tested the hypothesis that past infection by Herpes simplex type 1 or type 2 viruses or Cytomegalovirus or Chlamydia pneumoniae accounts for the association between serum total sialic acid and atherosclerosis. METHODS: Population-based samples of men and women living in four US communities were used in a cross-sectional study. Cases and matched controls were defined by B-mode ultrasound measurements of carotid and popliteal arterial wall thickness. In all, there were 267 case control pairs with information about antibody titres to viruses and 256 pairs with information about antibody titres to Chlamydia pneumoniae. RESULTS: Serum total sialic acid (S-TSA) level was significantly higher in cases with carotid atherosclerosis compared to their controls. The odds ratio for carotid atherosclerosis associated with sialic acid level above 75th percentile was 1.73 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.02-2.95) in the sample with information about antibodies to viruses and 1.70 (95% CI: 1.00-2.93) in the sample with information about antibodies to C. pneumoniae. Adjustment for titres of antibodies to viruses and C. pneumoniae had no impact on the relation between sialic acid and carotid atherosclerosis. CONCLUSIONS: From these results, it seems unlikely that previous infection by any of these micro-organisms accounts for the relation between S-TSA level and carotid atherosclerosis.

  • Association between serum sialic acid concentration and carotid atherosclerosis measured by B-mode ultrasound. The ARIC Investigators. Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study
  • 1996
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Epidemiology. - : Oxford University Press. - 1464-3685. ; 25:5, s. 953-958
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that the serum level of sialic acid is associated positively with mortality from coronary disease and stroke. In this study its relation with carotid atherosclerosis was evaluated. METHODS: From the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study, 323 cases with carotid intima-media wall thickness above the 90th percentile (measured with B-mode ultrasound) were matched 1:1 with controls without atherosclerosis. Serum sialic acid, plasma LDL and HDL cholesterol, serum insulin concentrations, blood pressure, antihypertensive medication use, and smoking status were used to assess the independent contribution of the sialic acid level to carotid atherosclerosis. RESULTS: The mean (SD) serum sialic acid concentration was 75.0 (9.7) mg/dl in cases and 70.7 (8.9) mg/dl in controls (P = 0.0001). In a conditional logistic model with adjustment for age, LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, serum insulin, smoking and hypertension, the odds ratio associated with sialic acid above the 75th percentile (> or = 78.3 mg/dl) versus below was 1.65 with a 95% confidence interval of 1.01-2.70. CONCLUSION: The sialic acid level is correlated with the presence of carotid atherosclerosis, independently of major cardiovascular disease risk factors. The biological mechanism behind this association is not resolved.
