Variation in the Incidence of Uterine Leiomyoma Among Premenopausal Women by Age and Race
TLDR
A higher prevalence of known risk factors did not explain the excess rate of uterine leiomyoma among premenopausal black women. Expand
A prospective study of reproductive factors and oral contraceptive use in relation to the risk of uterine leiomyomata.
TLDR
The risk of uterine leiomyomata was significantly inversely associated with age at menarche, parity, and age at first birth, and positively associated with a history of infertility and years since last birth. Expand
Plasma sex steroid hormone levels and risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
The data, in conjunction with past epidemiologic and animal studies, provide strong evidence for a causal relationship between postmenopausal estrogen levels and the risk of breast cancer. Expand
Risk of Uterine Leiomyomata among Premenopausal Women in Relation to Body Size and Cigarette Smoking
TLDR
Elevated adult body mass index is associated with a modest increased risk of uterine leiomyomata among premenopausal women, and risk was positively associated with weight gain since age 18 years. Expand
Incidence of laparoscopically confirmed endometriosis by demographic, anthropometric, and lifestyle factors.
TLDR
It is concluded that age, race, body mass index, alcohol use, and cigarette smoking are associated with the incidence of endometriosis and that some of these relations may differ by infertility status at the time of laparoscopic diagnosis. Expand
Endogenous estrogen, androgen, and progesterone concentrations and breast cancer risk among postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Circulating levels of sex steroid hormones may be most strongly associated with risk of ER+/PR+ breast tumors, but there were no statistically significant associations between this risk and the level of progesterone or sex hormone binding globulin. Expand
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Risk of Developing Urinary Incontinence
TLDR
To evaluate the association between type 2 diabetes mellitus and development of urinary incontinence in women, a large number of women diagnosed with DM have undergone surgery to correct for prolapse-like symptoms. Expand
Predictive value of serum and follicular fluid leptin concentrations during assisted reproductive cycles in normal women and in women with the polycystic ovarian syndrome.
TLDR
It was found that lower follicular fluid leptin concentrations were a marker of assisted reproduction treatment success in normal women, and women with polycystic ovarian syndrome who became pregnant tended to have lower mean leptin concentrations than women with PCOS who did not succeed at becoming pregnant. Expand
Endogenous steroid hormone concentrations and risk of breast cancer among premenopausal women.
TLDR
Levels of circulating estrogens and androgens may be important in the etiology of premenopausal breast cancer. Expand
Insulin stimulates androgen accumulation in incubations of ovarian stroma obtained from women with hyperandrogenism.
TLDR
The studies suggest that human ovarian stroma may be a target tissue for insulin and IGF-I, and that hyperinsulinemia may be an important factor contributing to ovarian hyperandrogenism. Expand
