Genetic variation in the ADIPOQ gene, adiponectin concentrations and risk of colorectal cancer: a Mendelian Randomization analysis using data from three large cohort studies
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-05-26)
Higher levels of circulating adiponectin have been related to lower risk of colorectal cancer in several prospective cohort studies, but it remains unclear whether this association may be causal. We aimed to improve causal inference in a Mendelian Randomization meta-analysis using nested case–control studies of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC, 623 cases, 623 ...
Prediagnostic calcium intake and lung cancer survival: A pooled analysis of 12 cohort studies
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-03-06)
<p><i>Background</i>: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. Little is known about whether prediagnostic nutritional factors may affect survival. We examined the associations of prediagnostic calcium intake from foods and/or supplements with lung cancer survival.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: The present analysis included 23,882 incident, primary lung cancer patients from 12 prospective cohort ...
