BACKGROUND Vitamin D is postulated to decrease the risk of breast cancer by inhibiting cell proliferation via the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Two common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the VDR gene, rs1544410 (BsmI) and rs2228570 (FokI), are inconsistently associated with breast cancer risk in Caucasian populations, while data for Asians are scarce.(More)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide. Approximately 5–10 % of breast cancers are hereditary, and caused by monoallelic germ line mutations in high-, moderate-, and low-penetrance breast cancer susceptibility genes.
