Candidate locus analysis of the TERT–CLPTM1L cancer risk region on chromosome 5p15 identifies multiple independent variants associated with endometrial cancer risk
Several studies have reported associations between multiple cancer types and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on chromosome 5p15, which harbours TERT and CLPTM1L, but no such association has been reported with ...
DNA ploidy in curettage specimens identifies high-risk patients and lymph node metastasis in endometrial cancer
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-04-21)
Background: Preoperative risk stratification is essential in tailoring endometrial cancer treatment, and biomarkers predicting lymph node metastasis and aggressive disease are aspired in clinical practice. DNA ploidy ...
Prognostic utility of vitamin D in acute coronary syndrome patients in coastal Norway
BACKGROUND: An inverse relationship between cardiovascular risk and levels of vitamin D and omega-3 index may exist. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the prognostic utility of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] in 871 ...
Performance comparison of three BRAF V600E detection methods in malignant melanoma and colorectal cancer specimen
Personalized cancer care requires reliable biomarkers. While the BRAF V600E mutation is implemented in the clinic, no method for its detection has so far been established as reference. We aimed to perform a comprehensive ...
Interaction between gas cooking and GSTM1 null genotype in bronchial responsiveness: Results from the European Community Respiratory Health Survey
Background: Increased bronchial responsiveness is characteristic of asthma. Gas cooking, which is a major indoor source of the highly oxidant nitrogen dioxide, has been associated with respiratory symptoms and reduced lung ...
