Associations between diabetes and multisite cancer risk were examined in a case-control study of 11,672 incident cancer cases (5341 men and 6331 women) and 47,768 cancer-free controls (14,199 men and 33,569 women). Using an unconditional logistic regression model and controlling for potential confounding factors, a past/present history of diabetes was(More)
Genetic polymorphisms in DNA repair genes may influence variations in individual DNA repair capacity, which could be associated with the development of cancer. We detected the distributions of three single-nucleotide polymorphisms (XRCC1 Arg399Gln, XRCC3 Thr241Met and XPD Lys751Gln) in DNA repair genes, and assessed the associations of these genetic(More)
To clarify preventive effects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) against colorectal carcinogenesis, we performed a dietary intervention in patients polypectomized for colorectal adenomas/tumors. For the former the following dietary advice was given: (1) decrease intake of fat from 30 to 20% of the total; (2) decrease consumption of n-6PUFAs(More)
BACKGROUND Susceptibility to sporadic colorectal cancer is multifactorial and arises from interactive combinations of allelic variants in low-penetrance genes and relevant environmental risk factors. Genetic polymorphisms in metabolic enzymes as gene susceptibility factors may modify colorectal cancer risk. We evaluated the risk of colorectal cancer(More)
Consumption of fish rich in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), such as docosahexaenoic acid, is suggested to reduce colorectal cancer risk through inhibition of the arachidonic acid (AA) cascade related to tumorigenesis and cell proliferation. High intake of saturated fatty acids (SFAs) may increase the risk. To examine associations between colorectal(More)
A cross-sectional study was conducted to clarify the associations of lifestyle factors (habitual exercise, alcohol intake and smoking habit) and plasma fatty acid (FA) concentrations as biomarkers of dietary FA intakes. We collected 7-d weighed diet records, lifestyle information and blood samples from 15 male and 79 female Japanese dietitians, and(More)
Dietary intake of fish rich in n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs), such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), has been proposed to decrease cancer risk. In contrast to results from laboratory studies, however, protective effects for breast cancer have proved equivocal in epidemiological studies. In the present case-control(More)
Purpose: To investigate whether the common cyclin D1 (CCND1) A870G polymorphism is a risk factor for colorectal cancer (CRC) in an Indian population. Methods: In this study, 301 newly diagnosed CRC patients and 291 healthy control subjects were genotyped by the PCR-RFLP method. Genotype frequencies were compared between cases and controls, and the(More)
A case-control study of 164 lung adenocarcinoma (AC) patients with 181 age- and gender-matched healthy controls was conducted in order to assess any associations between glutathione-S-transferase M1 (GSTM1), cytochrome P4501A1 (CYP1A1) and cytochrome P4502E1 (CYP2E1) polymorphisms and susceptibility to lung AC in Chinese. The presence of CYP2E1 variant(More)
To elucidate factors associated with the very low risk of gastric neoplasia in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, approximately 1/50 of the level in Japan, we recruited 52 male and 39 female participants from the general populace in the city of Yogyakarta in October 2003. Helicobacter pylori IgG antibodies were found in only 5% (0-13) (95% confidence interval) and 4%(More)
