Abstract

Native Hawaiians have higher lung cancer incidence and mortality than other ethnic groups, even after controlling for smoking. Could reduced mucociliary clearance, suspected in Polynesians, play a role? In this pilot study of 9 Hawaiian and 8 Caucasian men, mean velocities were faster although not statistically significant in Caucasians. This pilot also generated recommendations on subject recruitment, measures, and data analysis for future studies.
