Breast cancer risk is substantially lower in Singapore than in women from the United STATES: Part of the risk discrepancy is probably explained by differences in the production of endogenous estrogens, but differences in the pathway by which estrogen is metabolized may also play a role. We undertook a study to determine whether the ratio of urinary 2-hydroxyestrone (2OHE(1)):16alpha-hydroxyestrone (16alpha-OHE(1)) was higher in Singapore Chinese than in a group of United States (predominantly… CONTINUE READING
