Purpose: <br>Biologic evidence suggests that the Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-family may be involved in the etiology of epithelial invasive ovarian cancer (EOC). However, prospective studies investigating the role of IGF-I in ovarian carcinogenesis have yielded conflicting results.<br> Methods: <br>We pooled and harmonized data from 6 case-control studies nested within the Ovarian Cancer ...
Adipokines and inflammation markers and risk of differentiated thyroid carcinoma: The EPIC study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-23)
