The androgen receptor (AR) is involved in the regulation of hormone-responsive genes and, as such, variation within the gene is hypothesized to play a role in breast cancer susceptibility. We therefore assessed the relationship between AR repeat variation and breast cancer in young women from the general population. Women diagnosed with breast cancer before age 45 years and age-matched controls, all participants in a population-based case-control study of breast cancer, were assessed for length… CONTINUE READING
