Abstract INTRODUCTION: Potentially carcinogenic hazardous air pollutants (air toxics) have been inconsistently associated with breast cancer. Whether metabolic factors modify these associations is unknown. We studied 29 non-metallic air toxics classified as mammary gland carcinogens in animal studies in relation to breast cancer risk. METHODS: Participants included 49,718 women from the Sister Study. Census tract air toxic concentration estimates from the 2005 National Air Toxics Assessment were linked to enrollment residential addresses. Adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for ind...

I just cannot understand why it is so difficult to get people to grasp what seems to me a simple idea. Let's try one more time.The purpose of insurance is to spread risk. That's the essence of the concept. Health insurance (or health care insurance as some prefer to say) is different from other kinds of insurance in some ways, so let's just talk about health insurance.Health care costs are unpredictable. It is true that there are risk factors associated with some conditions, most notably smoking tobacco. Nevertheless, no matter how healthful your lifestyle, you still just might need expensive health care. You might be hit ...

Introduction: Seroma formation (SF) is the most common postoperative complication after mastectomy and axillary surgery. The aim of this study was to assess its incidence and risk factors following a modified radical mastectomy in breast cancer patients.Materials and methods: 271 patients who underwent a modified radical mastectomy (250 with traditional electrocautery and 21 with an ultrasonic scalpel) were studied. The SF rate was calculated and its association with patient-related factors, surgical features and postoperative variables was assessed and statistically analyzed with P

In the past century the western world has found a way to combat most communicative diseases; however, throughout that time the prevalence of obesity, hyperglycemia, and hyperlipidemia have drastically increased. These symptoms characterize metabolic syndrome – a non-communicable disease which has become one of the greatest health hazards of the world. During this same time period the western diet had dramatically changed. Homecooked meals have been replaced by highly-processed, calorically dense foods. This conversion to the current western diet was highlighted by the incorporation of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS...

Conclusion: Our results suggest that a small proportion of incident cancer cases in Nigeria are potentially preventable by maintaining normal body weight. The burden of cancer attributed to overweight and obesity is still relatively small in Nigeria, but it is likely to increase in future.

This study aims to examine the association of C100T genotypes and serum lipid levels with plasma drug levels in patients. Plasma tamoxifen concentration was positively associated with serum triglyceride concentration, adjusting for age and C100T genotype. Overweight (body mass index>24.0) patients with high serum cholesterol (≥200 mg/dL) had increased risks of ineffective endoxifen levels (

AbstractPurposeCirculating adipose stromal cells (CASC) are thought to be increased in obesity and facilitate angiogenesis, and tumor metastases.MethodsCASC were identified from buffy coat peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) by flow cytometry as CD34brightCD31− CD45− and CASC frequency was compared to adiposity measures in 33 women at increased risk for breast cancer. Feasibility of CASC as a response biomarker for a diet and exercise intervention in ten breast cancer survivors was then explored.ResultsFor 33 high-risk women, median CASC frequency was 9.7 per million PBMCs and trended positively with bod...

Obesity is associated with increased incidence and severity of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC); however, mechanisms underlying this relationship are incompletely understood. Here, we show that obesity reprograms mammary adipose tissue macrophages to a pro-inflammatory metabolically activated phenotype (MMe) that alters the niche to support tumor formation. Unlike pro-inflammatory M1 macrophages that antagonize tumorigenesis, MMe macrophages are pro-tumorigenic and represent the dominant macrophage phenotype in mammary adipose tissue of obese humans and mice. MMe macrophages release IL-6 in an NADPH oxidase 2 (NOX2)&nd...

In this study, decision trees that is one of data mining method was applied to anthropometric data and blood analysis values to complete the mentioned deficiencies in breast cancer diagnosis aiming studies. The determined value ranges were also presented visually to medical experts understand them easily. The proposed diagnostic system has accuracy rate up to 90.52% and provides value ranges indicating the breast cancer as well as mathematically presents the relations between the values and cancer.Graphical abstract
