    • Adiposity, hormone replacement therapy use and breast cancer risk by age and hormone receptor status: a large prospective cohort study 

      Ritte, Rebecca; Lukanova, Annekatrin; Berrino, Franco; Dossus, Laure; Tjønneland, Anne; Olsen, Anja; Overvad, Thure F. et al. (2012-05-14)
      Abstract Introduction Associations of hormone-receptor positive breast cancer with excess adiposity are reasonably well characterized; however, uncertainty remains regarding the association of body mass index (BMI) with ...
    • The association of coffee intake with liver cancer risk is mediated by biomarkers of inflammation and hepatocellular injury: data from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition 

      Aleksandrova, Krasimira; Bamia, Christina; Drogan, Dagmar; Lagiou, Pagona; Trichopoulou, Antonia; Jenab, Mazda; Fedirko, Veronika et al. (American Society for Nutrition, 2015-11-11)
      BACKGROUND: Higher coffee intake has been purportedly related to a lower risk of liver cancer. However, it remains unclear whether this association may be accounted for by specific biological mechanisms. ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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, H. B.; Jakobsen, Marianne U.; Egeberg, Rikke; Tjønneland, Anne; Nailler, Laura et al. (2013-03-07)
      Abstract Background Recently, some US cohorts have shown a moderate association between red and processed meat consumption and mortality supporting the results of previous studies among vegetarians. The aim of this study ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
