Candidate variant association studies have been largely unsuccessful in identifying common breast cancer susceptibility variants, although most studies have been underpowered to detect associations of a realistic magnitude. We assessed 41 common non-synonymous single-nucleotide polymorphisms (nsSNPs) for which evidence of association with breast cancer risk(More)
Validation of an association between the UGT1A6_19_T>G (rs6759892) polymorphism and overall breast cancer risk. A pilot study included two population-based case-control studies from Germany (MARIE-GENICA). An independent validation study comprised four independent breast cancer case-control studies from Finland (KBCP, OBCS), Germany (BBCC), and Sweden(More)
BACKGROUND Radon and arsenic are established pulmonary carcinogens. We investigated the association of cumulative exposure to these carcinogens with NOTCH1, HIF1A and other cancer-specific proteins in lung tissue from uranium miners. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Paraffin-embedded tissue of 147 miners was randomly selected from an autopsy repository by(More)
INTRODUCTION Few studies have investigated the influence of storage conditions on urine samples and none of them used targeted mass spectrometry (MS). OBJECTIVES We investigated the stability of metabolite profiles in urine samples under different storage conditions using targeted metabolomics. METHODS Pooled, fasting urine samples were collected and(More)
The human homolog of the Drosophila Scribble (SCRIB) tumor suppressor gene encodes a protein that regulates apical-basolateral polarity in mammalian epithelia and controls cell proliferation. Due to the role of cell polarity proteins in human cancers, we investigated whether genetic variability in SCRIB impacts breast carcinogenesis and tumor pathology.(More)
