ing is a risk factor for both diseases. However, only a fraction of smokers develop either disease, suggesting that there are genetic factors involved as well.

To better understand how COPD and lung cancer are related and begin to identify opportunities for chemoprevention, the National Cancer Institute and the NHLBI recently co-sponsored a workshop. Meeting participants identified four key research aims:

  • clarify common epidemiological characteristics of lung cancer and COPD,
  • identify shared genetic risk factors,
  • identify and validate biomarkers and gene expression patterns associated with each disease, and
  • determine shared disease mechanisms.

Additionally, to strengthen research interactions, the participants recommended that future longitudinal studies of lung cancer or COPD incorporate baseline and outcome measures for both diseases and that collaborations between the National Cancer Institute and the NHLBI be expanded.
