Experts called diseases that increase the risk of oncology

Immune-mediated diseases are associated with an increased likelihood of developing cancer. At the same time, risks are not always isolated for one affected organ. This conclusion was made by scientists after the completion of the collective study. His results have been published publicly in JAMA Oncology.

According to Mingyan Song, MD, from the Harvard School of Public Health, 48 common autoimmune and other immune-mediated conditions have been associated with an increased risk of cancer.

In multivariate analysis, only three conditions were associated with increased risk:

  • asthma;
  • ulcerative colitis;
  • primary biliary cholangitis.
