    Abstract : Ex-smokers are exposed to a higher breast cancer risk than are never smokers. This conclusion is based on a follow-up of the 10 902 women in the Malmö Preventive Project. The 31% higher incidence in ex-smokers remained statistically significant when other risk factors were taken into account in the analysis. READ MORE

  5. 5. ANALYSIS OF NOVEL BIOMARKERS FOR UNFAVORABLE BREAST CANCER PROGNOSIS

    University dissertation from Dept. of Community Medicine, Malmö University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women, and a major cause of mortality and morbidity despite the advances in diagnosis and treatment. The main challenge remains to identify novel biomarkers in order to improve existing treatment modalities. Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is considered as a direct precursor of invasive breast cancer. READ MORE
