  1. 1 Odds ratios were adjusted for the covariates (age, gender, education level, pack-years of cigarette smoking and of betel quid chewing, and drink-years of alcohol drinking) listed in Table 1.
  2. 2Interaction was examined with likelihood ratio test for cross-product terms based on a multiplicative model.
