- Plasma Enterolignan Concentrations and Colorectal Cancer Risk in a Nested Case-Control Study. Anneleen Kuijsten; Peter C. H. Hollman; Hendriek C. Boshuizen; Michel N. C. P. Buijsman; Pieter van t Veer; Frans J. Kok; Ilja C. W. Arts; H. Bas Bueno-de-Mesquita // American Journal of Epidemiology;Mar2008, Vol. 167 Issue 6, p734
Enterolignans are biphenolic compounds that possess several biologic activities whereby they may influence carcinogenesis. The authors investigated the association between plasma enterolactone and enterodiol and colorectal cancer risk in a Dutch prospective study. Among more than 35,000...
- NICE clinical guideline 86. Coeliac disease: recognition and assessment of coeliac disease. Jones, Hayley J.; Warner, Justin T. // Archives of Disease in Childhood -- Education & Practice Edition;Apr2010, Vol. 95 Issue 4, p17
The article presents information on the guideline "Recognition and assessment of coeliac disease" from the British National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) which involves screening of children and young people who have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
- Comparison of fully and semi-automated area-based methods for measuring mammographic density and predicting breast cancer risk. Sovio, U; Li, J; Aitken, Z; Humphreys, K; Czene, K; Moss, S; Hall, P; McCormack, V; dos-Santos-Silva, I // British Journal of Cancer;4/1/2014, Vol. 110 Issue 7, p1908
Background:Mammographic density is a strong risk factor for breast cancer but the lack of valid fully automated methods for quantifying it has precluded its use in clinical and screening settings. We compared the performance of a recently developed automated approach, based on the public domain...
