  1. 1. Folate - Associations with breast cancer depending on intake, metabolism, genetic variation and estrogen receptor status

    Detta är en avhandling från Nutrition Epidemiology Research Group

    Författare :Ulrika Ericson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; folate; B-vitamins; breast cancer; diet; epidemiology; nutrition; plasma; polymorphism; estrogen receptor α; estrogen receptor β; reproducibility; prospective;

    Sammanfattning : Folate is a B-vitamin that may influence cancer development via its role as methyl donor for DNA synthesis and methylation. Plant foods contain many bioactive compounds including folate and fiber. Results from the Malmö Diet and Cancer (MDC) cohort indicate lower breast cancer risk at high fiber intake. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Register studies of cancer in the Southern Health Care Region in Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Cancer Epidemiology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Bo Attner; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer risk; epidemiology; incidence; comorbidity; survival; partner; health care costs; population-based register study;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim was to study different aspect of health care use and health care costs on a population based level for persons with cancer and their partners, and from an individual level to explore the impact of comorbidities in incidence and survival. In the beginning of the study all persons in the Southern Health Care Region in Sweden diagnosed with colon, rectal, breast, prostate and lung cancer during the period 2000 to 2005 were identified via the Swedish Cancer Register.

  3. 3. Diet and postmenopausal breast cancer - With a focus on low-grade inflammation

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Joana Alves Dias; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxidative stress; low-grade inflammation; Biomarkers of inflammation; cytokines; ICC; variation; diet; dietary recommendations; diet quality index; food patterns; reduced rank regression; obesity; CVD; postmenopausal breast cancer; epidemiology; cross sectional; nested case-control;

    Sammanfattning : Diet-breast cancer studies have shown that “healthy eating patterns” are associated with decreased risk whereas unhealthy patterns (especially those including alcohol) are associated with increased risk, particularly in postmenopausal women. The potential mechanisms behind the observed associations are still under investigation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Diabetes mellitus and risk of prostate cancer - A focus on shared risk factors and survivor bias

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Isabel Drake; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; carbohydrates; cohort; competing risk; diabetes mellitus; diet; epidemiology; fiber; gene; gene-environment; lifestyle; prostate cancer; survivor bias; transcription factor 7-like 2; whole-grain; alkylresorcinol metabolites;

    Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer (PCa) is a heterogenous disease including very aggressive lethal tumors to incidentally discovered clinically insignificant tumors. Age, ethnicity, and family history are the only established risk factors. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Epidemiology of Childhood Celiac Disease: A Social Epidemiological Perspective on Perinatal Factors
