Plasma microRNAs as biomarkers of pancreatic cancer risk in a prospective cohort study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-06-12)
Noninvasive biomarkers for early pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) diagnosis and disease risk stratification are greatly needed. We conducted a nested case-control study within the Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort to evaluate prediagnostic microRNAs (miRs) as biomarkers of subsequent PDAC risk. A panel of eight miRs (miR-10a, -10b, -21-3p, -21-5p, -30c, -106b, ...
Measured adiposity in relation to head and neck cancer risk in the European prospective investigation into cancer and nutrition.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2017-06)
<b>Background</b>: Emerging evidence from cohort studies indicates that adiposity is associated with greater incidence of head and neck cancer. However, most studies have used self-reported anthropometry which is prone to error.<br><b>Methods</b>: Among 363,094 participants in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study (EPIC) with measured anthropometry, there were 837 ...
