      <p><i>Background</i>: There is a large body of evidence demonstrating long-lasting protective effect of each full-term pregnancy (FTP) on the development of breast cancer (BC) later in life, a phenomenon that could be related to both hormonal and immunological changes during pregnancies. In this work, we studied the pregnancy-associated differences in peripheral blood gene expression profiles between ...
    • No overdiagnosis in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program estimated by combining record linkage and questionnaire information in the Norwegian Women and Cancer study 

      Lund, Eiliv; Nakamura, Aurelie; Thalabard, Jean-Christophe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-12)
      <i>Background</i>: The Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) was implemented across the country in 2005 and has been criticised for potential ‘overdiagnosis’, i.e. a breast cancer diagnosis that otherwise would not have been detected or treated in a woman’s lifetime. We aimed to estimate overdiagnosis in the NBCSP based on the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) study using both ...

(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-10-30)
      Background: Reproductive events are associated with important physiologic changes, yet little is known about how reproductive factors influence long-term health in women. Our objective was to assess the relation of reproductive characteristics with all-cause and cause-specific mortality risk. <p>Methods: The analysis was performed within the European Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition ...
