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...

Regular physical activity and mammographic density: a cohort study.

Physical activity is a modifiable lifestyle risk factor in prevention of breast cancer. Mammographic density (MD) is a strong risk factor for breast cancer. We investigate the association of regular p...

Assessment of mammographic breast density after sleeve gastrectomy.

Mammographic breast density (BD) is an independent risk factor for breast cancer. The effects of bariatric surgery on BD are unknown.

Childhood body size and midlife mammographic breast density in foreign-born and U.S.-born women in New York City.

We investigated whether childhood body size is associated with midlife mammographic density, a strong risk factor for breast cancer.

Addition of a polygenic risk score, mammographic density, and endogenous hormones to existing breast cancer risk prediction models: A nested case-control study.

No prior study to our knowledge has examined the joint contribution of a polygenic risk score (PRS), mammographic density (MD), and postmenopausal endogenous hormone levels-all well-confirmed risk fac...

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...

Evaluation of Mammographic Breast Density in Participants With Hormone Receptor-Negative Breast Cancer Enrolled on Study A011502

This phase III trial evaluates mammographic breast density in participants with hormone receptor-negative breast cancer enrolled on study A011502. High breast density has been shown to be ...

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...

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)
