Summary of "Collaborative Molecular Epidemiology Study of Metabolic Dysregulation, DNA Methylation, and Breast Cancer Risk Among Nigerian Women: MEND Study Objectives and Design."

To elucidate the role of metabolic dysregulation and associated DNA methylation changes on breast cancer risk and aggressive subtypes among Nigerian women. We describe the design and methods of a collaborative molecular epidemiology study of breast cancer in Nigerian hospitals.

Genome-wide association study of peripheral blood DNA methylation and conventional mammographic density measures.

Age- and body mass index (BMI)-adjusted mammographic density is one the strongest breast cancer risk factors. DNA methylation is a molecular mechanism that could underlie inter-individual variation in...

Reproductive characteristics modify the association between global DNA methylation and breast cancer risk in a population-based sample of women.

DNA methylation has been implicated in breast cancer aetiology, but little is known about whether reproductive history and DNA methylation interact to influence carcinogenesis. This study examined mod...

Genome-wide DNA methylation assessment of 'BRCA1-like' early-onset breast cancer: Data from the Australian Breast Cancer Family Registry.

Breast cancers arising in women carrying a germline mutation in BRCA1 are typically high-grade, early-onset and have distinct morphological features (BRCA1-like). However, the majority of early-onset ...

Alcohol and DNA Methylation: An Epigenome-Wide Association Study in Blood and Normal Breast Tissue.

The biological mechanisms driving associations between alcohol consumption and chronic diseases might include epigenetic modification of DNA methylation. We explored the hypothesis that alcohol consum...

Cucurbitacin B Induces Hypermethylation of Oncogenes in Breast Cancer Cells.

Breast cancer is a complex disease driven by multiple factors including both genetic and epigenetic alterations. Recent studies revealed that abnormal gene expression induced by epigenetic changes inc...

Physical Activity in Reducing Metabolic Dysregulation (MetD) in Obese Latina Breast Cancer Survivors

This randomized phase II trial studies how well physical activity works in reducing metabolic dysregulation in obese Latina breast cancer survivors. Physical activity may improve fitness a...

Characterization of Methylation Pattern in Human Oocytes of Women Undergoing Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection Treatment

There is increasing evidence that exposure to environmental factors in early development is associated with an increased risk of metabolic and other common diseases. These increased diseas...

Exercise in Targeting Metabolic Dysregulation in Stage I-III Breast or Prostate Cancer Survivors

This randomized pilot clinical trial studies how well circuit, interval-based aerobic and resistance exercise works in targeting metabolic dysregulation in stage I-III breast or prostate c...

Comparison of MRI and Molecular Breast Imaging in Breast Diagnostic Evaluation

The purpose of this study is to determine the sensitivity of Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) relative to MRI of the breast in patients undergoing MRI for a clinical concern, or abnormal dia...

Protocol to Examine Methylation of Tumor Suppression Genes in Women at High Risk of Developing Breast Cancer

A study to examine the correlations between methylation of various genes associated with breast cancer and proliferation and cytomorphology in breast epithelial cells acquired by random pe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of molecular biology to the answering of epidemiological questions. The examination of patterns of changes in DNA to implicate particular carcinogens and the use of molecular markers to predict which individuals are at highest risk for a disease are common examples.

A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.

Factors that modify the effect of the putative causal factor(s) under study.

Study subjects in COHORT STUDIES whose outcomes are unknown e.g., because they could not or did not wish to attend follow-up visits.(from Dictionary of Epidemiology, 5th ed.)

A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
