Polymorphic CA repeat length in insulin-like growth factor 1 and risk of breast cancer in Iranian women.


To evaluate the association between breast cancer and cytosine-adenine (CA) dinucleotide repeat length polymorphisms in the promoter region of the Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) gene, a case-control study of 215 breast cancer patients and 224 controls was conducted in Iranian women.
