    • 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) 

      Canzian, Federico; Kaaks, Rudolf; Cox, David G.; Henderson, Katherine D.; Henderson, Brian E.; Berg, Christine; Bingham, Sheila et al. (2009-07-29)
      Abstract 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 ...
    • A genomic approach to therapeutic target validation identifies a glucose-lowering GLP1R variant protective for coronary heart disease 

      Scott, Robert; Freitag, Daniel F; Li, Li; Chu, Audrey Y; Surendran, Praveen; Young, Robin; Grarup, Niels et al. (2016-06-01)
    • Identification of Novel Genetic Markers of Breast Cancer Survival 

      Guo, Qi; Schmidt, Marjanka K; Kraft, Peter; Canisius, Sander; Chen, Constance; Khan, Sofia; Tyrer, Jonathan et al. (2015-04-18)
      BACKGROUND: Survival after a diagnosis of breast cancer varies considerably between patients, and some of this variation may be because of germline genetic variation. We aimed to identify genetic markers associated with ...
    • 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)
    • Lung cancers attributable to environmental tobacco smoke and air pollution in non-smokers in different European countries: a prospective study 

      Vineis, Paolo; Hoek, Gerard; Krzyzanowski, Michal; Vigna-Taglianti, Federica; Veglia, Fabrizio; Airoldi, Luisa; Overvad, Kim et al. (2007-02-15)
      Abstract 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 ...
    • Meat consumption and mortality - results from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition 

      Rohrmann, Sabine; Overvad, Kim; Bueno-de-Mesquita, HB; Jakobsen, Marianne U; Egeberg, Rikke; Tjønneland, Anne; Nailler, Laura et al. (2013-03-07)
    • Modifiable causes of premature death in middle-age in Western Europe: results from the EPIC cohort study 

      Muller, David C; Murphy, Neil; Johansson, Mattias; Ferrari, Pietro; Tsilidis, Konstantinos K; Boutron-Ruault, Marie-Christine; Clavel, Francoise et al.
      BACKGROUND: Life expectancy is increasing in Europe, yet a substantial proportion of adults still die prematurely before the age of 70 years. We sought to estimate the joint and relative contributions of tobacco smoking, ...
    • Osteoprotegerin and breast cancer risk by hormone receptor subtype: a nested case-control study in the EPIC cohort 

      Fortner, Renée T; Sarink, Danja; Schock, Helena; Johnson, Theron; Tjønneland, Anne; Olsen, Anja; Overvad, Kim et al. (2017-02-08)
    • 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 Mikael; Ward, Heather A; Norat, Teresa; Luan, Jian'an; May, Anne M; Weiderpass, Elisabete; Sharp, Stephen John et al. (2015-01-14)
    • Pre-diagnostic metabolite concentrations and prostate cancer risk in 1077 cases and 1077 matched controls in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition 

      Schmidt, Julie A; Fensom, Georgina K; Rinaldi, Sabina; Scalbert, Augustin; Appleby, Paul N; Achaintre, David; Gicquiau, Audrey et al. (2017-07-05)
      Abstract Background Little is known about how pre-diagnostic metabolites in blood relate to risk of prostate cancer. We aimed to investigate the prospective association between ...
    • 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. (2016-06-29)
    • Serum Endotoxins and Flagellin and Risk of Colorectal Cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Cohort. 

      Kong, So Yeon; Tran, Hao Quang; Gewirtz, Andrew T; McKeown-Eyssen, Gail; Fedirko, Veronika; Romieu, Isabelle; Tjønneland, Anne et al. (2016-02)
      BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are thought to be involved in colorectal cancer development. These processes may contribute to leakage of bacterial products, such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and ...
    • Tall height and obesity are associated with an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer: results from the EPIC cohort study 

      Perez-Cornago, Aurora; Appleby, Paul N; Pischon, Tobias; Tsilidis, Konstantinos K; Tjønneland, Anne; Olsen, Anja; Overvad, Kim et al. (2017-07-13)
      Abstract Background The relationship between body size and prostate cancer risk, and in particular risk by tumour characteristics, is not clear because most studies have not ...
