SESSION TITLE: Lung Cancer III
SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PURPOSE: To know whether smoking status, FEV1 or individual susceptibility to smoking is related to the survival in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients
METHODS: Consecutive one thousand eighteen NSCLC patients from our prospective cohort of the lung cancer were evaluated in present study. Pulmonary function testing and interview with patients for smoking habit, which was classified as never-, former- and current-smokers, were taken near the time of diagnosis. Individual susceptibility to smoking was evaluated by using a formula of (100-%predicted FEV1)/pack-year. Severity of comorbidity was evaluated by using the Adult Comorbidity Index (ACE-27). Prognostic significance on survival as end point was estimated with the variables.
