Effect of the MDM2 promoter polymorphisms SNP309T>G and SNP285G>C on the risk of ovarian cancer in BRCA1 mutation carriers
(BioMed Central, 2012-10-05)
Background: While BRCA mutation carriers possess a 20-40% lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer, knowledge about genetic modifying factors influencing the phenotypic expression remains obscure. We explored the ...

Is total immunoglobulin E and atopic sensitization associated with food-related gastrointestinal complaints?
(The University of Bergen, 2014-04-08)
Background: We have observed increased number of "IgE-armed" mast cells in duodenal mucosa of patients with food hypersensitivity, and therefore we wanted to explore whether serum total IgE levels and atopic sensitization ...
