    • Circulating Osteopontin and Prediction of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Development in a Large European Population 

      Duarte-Salles, Talita; Misra, Sandeep; Stepien, Magdalena; Plymoth, Amelie; Muller, David C.; Overvad, Kim; Olsen, Anja et al. (American Association for Cancer Research, 2016-06-23)
      We previously identified osteopontin (OPN) as a promising marker for the early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study, we investigated the association between pre-diagnostic circulating OPN levels and ...
    • Physical Activity and all-cause mortality across levels of general and abdominal adiposity: The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition Study (EPIC) 

      Ekelund, Ulf; Ward, Heather A.; Norat, Teresa; Luan, Jian'an; May, Anne M.; Weiderpass, Elisabete; Sharp, Stephen S. et al. (American Society for Nutrition, 2015-01-14)
      Background: The higher risk of death resulting from excess adiposity may be attenuated by physical activity (PA). However, the theoretical number of deaths reduced by eliminating physical inactivity compared with overall ...
    • Prediagnostic selenium status and hepatobiliary cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition cohort 

      Hughes, David J.; Duarte-Salles, Talita; Hybsier, Sandra; Trichopoulou, Antonia; Stepien, Magdalena; Aleksandrova, Krasimira; Overvad, Kim et al. (American Society for Nutrition, 2016-06-29)
      Background: Selenium status is suboptimal in many Europeans and may be a risk factor for the development of various cancers, including those of the liver and biliary tract. Objective: We wished to examine whether selenium ...
    • The INSIG2 rs7566605 polymorphism is not associated with body mass index and breast cancer risk 

      Campa, Daniele; Husing, Anika; McKay, James D.; Sinilnikova, Olga M.; Vogel, Ulla; Tjonneland, Anne; Overvad, Kim et al. (2010-10-18)
      Abstract Background The single nucleotide polymorphism rs7566605, located in the promoter of the INSIG2 gene, has been the subject of a strong scientific effort aimed to elucidate its possible association with body mass ...
