Summary of "Does mammographic density mediate risk factor associations with breast cancer? An analysis by tumor characteristics."

Though mammographic density (MD) has been proposed as an intermediate marker of breast cancer risk, few studies have examined whether the associations between breast cancer risk factors and risk are mediated by MD, particularly by tumor characteristics.

Serum osteoprotegerin levels and mammographic density among high-risk women.

Mammographic density is a risk factor for breast cancer but the mechanism behind this association is unclear. The receptor activator of nuclear factor κB (RANK)/RANK ligand (RANKL) pathway has been i...

Mammographic density and breast cancer risk in breast screening assessment cases and women with a family history of breast cancer.

Mammographic density has been shown to be a strong independent predictor of breast cancer and a causative factor in reducing the sensitivity of mammography. There remain questions as to the use of mam...

Adiposity at age 10 and mammographic density among premenopausal women.

Although childhood adiposity is inversely associated with breast cancer risk, the association of childhood adiposity with mammographic density in premenopausal women has not been adequately studied. W...

Breast tissue density change after oophorectomy in BRCA mutation carrier patients using visual & volumetric analysis.

BRCA1/2 mutations account for 30-50% of hereditary breast cancers and bilateral oophorectomy is associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer (BC) in these patients. Breast density is a well-establi...

Association between mammographic density and tumor marker-defined breast cancer subtypes: a case-control study.

High mammographic density (MD) is the most important risk factor for breast cancer. This study aimed to clarify the relationship between MD and breast cancer subtypes defined by tumor markers. We enro...

Study Evaluating Changes in Mammographic Breast Density

The objective of the study is to evaluate quantitative changes in mammographic breast density from baseline to 24 months in postmenopausal women receiving daily doses of either BZA 20 mg/C...

Karma Intervention Study

This is a dose determination study aiming to identify the optimal tamoxifen dose for reducing the risk of breast cancer. Instead of following a very large number of women, for many years, ...

Effect of Bazedoxifene, Raloxifene, and Placebo on Breast Density

It has been shown that women who have dense breasts have an increased risk of breast cancer compared with women whose breasts are less dense. However, while breast density may be a risk...

Trial of 4-OHT Gel in Women Aimed at Reducing Dense Breast Tissue

A study to determine the efficacy of 8 mg/day (4 mg/breast) of BHR-700 gel compared to placebo for reducing breast tissue density in women identified as having dense breast tissue upon ana...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Telephone surveys are conducted to monitor prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature MORBIDITY and MORTALITY. The data collected is in regard to actual behaviors, rather than on attitudes or knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984.

Studies designed to examine associations, commonly, hypothesized causal relations. They are usually concerned with identifying or measuring the effects of risk factors or exposures. The common types of analytic study are CASE-CONTROL STUDIES; COHORT STUDIES; and CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDIES.

A paired box transcription factor that is essential for CELL DIFFERENTIATION of B-LYMPHOCYTES. It functions both as a transcriptional activator and repressor to mediate B-cell commitment.

Statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.

Separation of particles according to density by employing a gradient of varying densities. At equilibrium each particle settles in the gradient at a point equal to its density. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
