Significant increases in LOD score for lung cancer associated with other cancer risk, as identified by OSA. “Cut point” denotes the cutoff value for the covariate in the selected subsets with maximum LOD

  • aThe unit of incidence rate that is measured in “per 100 person-years.” None of increases in LOD score were significant after correction for testing multiple covariates on the same chromosome (P ≤ 0.05/54 = 0.0009).
