A comprehensive analysis of the androgen receptor gene and risk of breast cancer. Results from the National Cancer Institute Breast and Prostate Cancer Cohort Consortium (BPC3)
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2006-09-20)
Introduction Androgens have been hypothesised to influence risk of breast cancer through several possible mechanisms, including their conversion to estradiol or their binding to the oestrogen receptor and/or androgen receptor (AR) in the breast. Here, we report on the results of a large and comprehensive study of the association between genetic variation in the AR gene and risk of breast cancer ...
Genetic polymorphisms of the GNRH1 and GNRHR genes and risk of breast cancer in the National Cancer Institute Breast and Prostate Cancer Cohort Consortium (BPC3)
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2009-07-29)
Background: Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GNRH1) triggers the release of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone from the pituitary. Genetic variants in the gene encoding GNRH1 or its receptor may influence breast cancer risk by modulating production of ovarian steroid hormones. We studied the association between breast cancer risk and polymorphisms in genes that code for GNRH1 ...
Lung cancers attributable to environmental tobacco smoke and air pollution in non-smokers in different European countries : a prospective study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007-02-15)
Background: Several countries are discussing new legislation on the ban of smoking in public places, and on the acceptable levels of traffic-related air pollutants. It is therefore useful to estimate the burden of disease associated with indoor and outdoor air pollution. Methods: We have estimated exposure to Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) and to air pollution in never smokers and ex-smokers ...
