Killer immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) recognition of specific human histocompatibility leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I allotypes contributes to the array of receptor-ligand interactions that determine natural killer (NK) cell response to its target. Contrasting genetic effects of KIR/HLA combinations have been observed in infectious and autoimmune(More)
We examined the relation between physical activity and endometrial cancer using data from a multicentre case-control study involving 405 endometrial cancer cases and 297 population controls. Estimates of recreational (i.e. active sport, walks and hikes) and nonrecreational activity (i.e. house cleaning, climbing stairs and walking or standing on the job)(More)
The clinical response of advanced endometrial adenocarcinoma to progestin therapy does not correlate perfectly with biochemically assayed progesterone receptor status of the tumor. We have previously suggested that heterogeneity of progesterone receptor at the cellular, tumor, and tissue levels, not detectable by the biochemical assay, might contribute to(More)
