Overweight, obesity, and mortality in a large prospective cohort of persons 50 to 71 years old.
TLDR
Excess body weight during midlife, including overweight, is associated with an increased risk of death in men and women aged 50 to 71 years old in the National Institutes of Health-AARP cohort. Expand
Individual and Combined Effects of Age, Breast Density, and Hormone Replacement Therapy Use on the Accuracy of Screening Mammography
TLDR
The accuracy of screening mammography is best in older women and in women with fatty breasts, and the individual and combined effects of age, breast density, and HRT use on mammographic accuracy are examined. Expand
Prospective breast cancer risk prediction model for women undergoing screening mammography.
TLDR
The model may identify high-risk women better than the Gail model, although predictive accuracy was only moderate and may be able to identify women at high risk for breast cancer for preventive interventions or more intensive surveillance. Expand
Detection of ductal carcinoma in situ in women undergoing screening mammography.
TLDR
Overall, approximately 1 in every 1300 screening mammography examinations leads to a diagnosis of DCIS, and the clinical significance of screen-detected DCIS needs further investigation. Expand
Physical activity levels before and after a diagnosis of breast carcinoma
TLDR
Whether PA levels after diagnosis declined from prediagnosis levels and whether any changes in PA varied by disease stage, adjuvant treatment, patient age, or body mass index (BMI) in 812 patients with incident breast carcinoma is investigated. Expand
Elevated biomarkers of inflammation are associated with reduced survival among breast cancer patients.
TLDR
Circulating SAA and CRP may be important prognostic markers for long-term survival in breast cancer patients, independent of race, tumor stage, race, and body mass index. Expand
Influence of pre- and postdiagnosis physical activity on mortality in breast cancer survivors: the health, eating, activity, and lifestyle study.
TLDR
Moderate-intensity physical activity after a diagnosis of breast cancer may improve prognosis and reduce the risk of death among women with breast cancer. Expand
Changes in body fat and weight after a breast cancer diagnosis: influence of demographic, prognostic, and lifestyle factors.
TLDR
Weight and body fat increased in the postdiagnosis period and greater increases were observed among women diagnosed with a higher disease stage, younger age, being postmenopausal, and women who decreased their physical activity from diagnosis to up to 3 years after diagnosis. Expand
Physical activity recommendations and decreased risk of mortality.
TLDR
Following physical activity guidelines is associated with lower risk of death, and Mortality benefit may also be achieved by engaging in less than recommended activity levels. Expand
Colorectal cancer risk prediction tool for white men and women without known susceptibility.
TLDR
This absolute risk prediction models for CRC are developed from population-based data, and a simple questionnaire suitable for self-administration and are potentially useful for counseling, for designing research intervention studies, and for other applications. Expand
