    • The Association of Multiple Biomarkers of Iron Metabolism and Type 2 Diabetes - the EPIC-InterAct Study 

      Podmore, Clara; Meidtner, Karina; Schulze, Matthias B.; Scott, Robert A.; Ramond, Anna; Butterworth, Adam S.; di Angelantonio, Emanuele et al. (American Diabetes Association, 2016-02-09)
      Objective: Observational studies show an association between ferritin and type 2 diabetes (T2D), suggesting a role of high iron stores for T2D development. However, ferritin is influenced by factors other than iron stores, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Determinants of non- response to a second assessment of lifestyle factors and body weight in the EPIC-PANACEA study 

      May, Anne M.; Adema, Lotte E.; Romaguera, Dora; Vergnaud, Anne-Claire; Agudo, Antonio; Ekelund, Ulf; Steffen, Annika et al. (2012-09-24)
      Abstract Background This paper discusses whether baseline demographic, socio-economic, health variables, length of follow-up and method of contacting the participants predict non-response to the invitation for a second ...
    • Dietary Intakes of Individual Flavanols and Flavonols Are Inversely Associated with Incident Type 2 Diabetes in European Populations 

      Zamora-Ros, Raul; Forouhi, Nita G.; Sharp, Stephen J.; Gonzalez, Carlos A.; Buijsse, Brian; Guevara, Marcela; van der Schouw, Yvonne T. et al. (The American Society for Nutrition, 2013-12-24)
      Dietary flavanols and flavonols, flavonoid subclasses, have been recently associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Europe. Even within the same subclass, flavonoids may differ considerably in bioavailability ...
    • Flavonoid and lignan intake and pancreatic cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort 

      Molina-Montes, Esther; Sánchez, María-José; Zamora-Ros, Raul; Bueno-de-Mesquita, H.B(as).; Wark, Petra A.; Obon-Santacana, Mireia; Kühn, Tilman et al. (Wiley, 2016)
      Despite the potential cancer preventive effects of flavonoids and lignans, their ability to reduce pancreatic cancer risk has not been demonstrated in epidemiological studies. Our aim was to examine the association between ...
    • Pre-diagnostic meat and fibre intakes in relation to colorectal cancer survival in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition 

      Ward, Heather A.; Norat, Teresa; Overvad, Kim; Dahm, Christina C.; Bueno-de-Mesquita, H. Bas; Jenab, Mazda; Fedirko, Veronika et al. (Cambridge University Press, 2016-05-19)
      Improvements in colorectal cancer (CRC) detection and treatment have led to greater numbers of CRC survivors, for whom there is limited evidence on which to provide dietary guidelines to improve survival outcomes. Higher ...
    • The association of education with body mass index and waist circumference in the EPIC-PANACEA study 

      Hermann, Silke; Rohrmann, Sabine; Linseisen, Jakob; May, Anne M.; Kunst, Anton; Besson, Herve; Romaguera, Dora et al. (2011-03-17)
      Abstract Background To examine the association of education with body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC). Method This study included ...
