Breast cancer risk in women with abnormal cytology in nipple aspirates of breast fluid.
TLDR
The results obtained with the newly followed women independently confirmed previous findings that women with abnormal cytology in nipple aspirates of breast fluid have an increased risk of breast cancer. Expand
Breast cancer incidence in women with abnormal cytology in nipple aspirates of breast fluid.
TLDR
Findings provide strong support for the hypothesis that hyperplasia and atypicalhyperplasia diagnosed in nipple aspirates of breast fluid are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Expand
Stimulatory influence of soy protein isolate on breast secretion in pre- and postmenopausal women.
TLDR
It is indicated that prolonged consumption of soy protein isolate has a stimulatory effect on the premenopausal female breast, characterized by increased secretion of breast fluid, the appearance of hyperplastic epithelial cells, and elevated levels of plasma estradiol. Expand
Benign and malignant breast disease: initial study results of serum and breast fluid analyses of endogenous estrogens.
TLDR
There is little evidence of any relation of most breast cancer risk factors with the various serum estrogen parameters studied, and no support for the hypothesis that breast cancer patients have higher serum percent free E2 than controls or women with benign breast disease. Expand
Breast cancer risk associated with abnormal cytology in nipple aspirates of breast fluid and prior history of breast biopsy.
TLDR
Age-adjusted as well as multivariate-adjusted relative risks indicated that the increased risk of breast cancer associated with proliferative cytologic findings was largely confined to women who had a prior history of breast biopsy. Expand
Genetic factors in the etiology of breast cancer
TLDR
A working hypothesis has been developed that interrelates genetic‐environmental interactions in breast cancer etiology and pathogenesis and emphasizes interaction of genetic, physiological, endocrine and environmental factors in the epidemiology of breast cancer. Expand

TLDR
Professor Emeritus of Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology, University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, was presented the American Society of Preventives Oncology's Distinguished Achievement Award at the Society's annual meeting on March 15, 1992, in Bethesda, Maryland. Expand
Association of race, age, menopausal status, and cerumen type with breast fluid secretion in nonlactating women, as determined by nepple aspiration.
TLDR
The percentage of successful aspirations declined in women over 50 years of age in all racial groups, but distinctly less so in Caucasians, which suggested that genetic factors may be associated with breast fluid secretion in nonlactating women. Expand
Nipple aspirate cytology for the study of breast cancer precursors.
TLDR
Inasmuch as APD may represent an intermediate step in the malignant transformation of duct epithelium, the cytologic examination of NAF offers a new approach with which to study the spectrum of breast cancer precursors and to assist in identifying women at risk for breast cancer. Expand
