- Risk factors for squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus in women: a caseâ€“control study. Sharp, L; Chilvers, C E D; Cheng, K K; McKinney, P A; Logan, R F A; Cook-Mozaffari, P; Ahmed, A; Day, N E // British Journal of Cancer;12/1/2001, Vol. 85 Issue 11, p1667
Oesophageal cancer rates in women in the UK are more than 3 times higher than in most other European populations. A population-based matched case-control study of histologically confirmed squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus in women was carried out in 4 regions in England and Scotland....
- Family history of breast cancer and young age at diagnosis of breast cancer increase risk of second primary malignancies in women: a population-based cohort study. Prochazka, M.; Hall, P.; Granath, F.; Czene, K. // British Journal of Cancer;11/6/2006, Vol. 95 Issue 9, p1291
Among 152 600 breast cancer patients diagnosed during 1958â€“2000, there was a 22% increased risk of developing a second primary non-breast malignancy (standardised incidence ratio (SIR)=1.22; 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.19â€“1.24). The highest risk was seen for connective tissue...

- Yen for fruit is good for men. // Asian Pacific Post;8/21/2008, p29
The article reports on the findings of a study led by Japan's health ministry which revealed that men who eat more fruit and vegetable are less likely to develop a cancer of the esophagus.

- Esophageal Adenocarcinoma Incidence in Individuals With Gastroesophageal Reflux: Synthesis and Estimates From Population Studies. Rubenstein, Joel H.; Scheiman, James M.; Sadeghi, Shahram; Whiteman, David; Inadomi, John M. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Feb2011, Vol. 106 Issue 2, p254
OBJECTIVES:Recent advances in the management of Barrett's esophagus may kindle enthusiasm for screening for esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are recognized as relative risks for EAC. However, the absolute incidence of EAC in specific populations...
- Relationship between Spatial Distribution of Esophageal and Gastric Cancers and Soil Conditions in Golestan Province. Aghababaei Ziarati, Ali; Ghorbani, Hadi; Hosseinalizadeh, Mohsen // Journal of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences (JMUMS);Mar2013 Supplement 1, p193
Background and purpose: Cancer is the common cause of death in developed and developing countries. Gastrointestinal cancer is a major cause of death in north of Iran which is located in the esophageal cancer belt. North east of Iran especially Torkman Sahra has the maximum number of patients...
- Identification of New Candidate Genes and Chemicals Related to Esophageal Cancer Using a Hybrid Interaction Network of Chemicals and Proteins. Gao, Yu-Fei; Yuan, Fei; Liu, Junbao; Li, Li-Peng; He, Yi-Chun; Gao, Ru-Jian; Cai, Yu-Dong; Jiang, Yang // PLoS ONE;Jun2015, Vol. 10 Issue 6, p1
Cancer is a serious disease responsible for many deaths every year in both developed and developing countries. One reason is that the mechanisms underlying most types of cancer are still mysterious, creating a great block for the design of effective treatments. In this study, we attempted to...
- New Chapter Opens In Iranian Research Story. Kuska, Bob // JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute;01/17/2001, Vol. 93 Issue 2, p86
Deals with the revival of a quest to explain the extremely high rate of esophageal cancer in areas of northern Iran. Demise of a Westernized cancer registry in Babol, Iran in 1979; Iranian scientists' formation of their own society to study esophageal cancer in the early 1990s; Opportunity to...
