    ..93 if adjusted for Gleason score. These findings provide clues on the role of a DNMT3b SNP in prostate cancer progression and illustrate the importance of considering possible causal relationships in the analyses. ..

    ..Results suggest that the higher proportion of HPV16/18 related high grade CIN in younger women could be the result of faster progression and not of earlier infection by these types. ..
