The association between the level of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in breast adipose tissue at the time of diagnosis and the subsequent development of metastasis was examined in a cohort of 209 patients presenting with an initially localized breast cancer. CLA level in breast adipose tissue was used as a qualitative biomarker of its past dietary intake. Biopsies of adipose tissue were obtained at the time of initial surgery. A CLA-enriched fraction was prepared by high performance liquid… CONTINUE READING
