Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Australia
Cancer Causes Control 15:829-35. 2004..21). Conversely the risk of cervical cancer was higher among twin mothers (RR = 1.78, 95% CI 0.88-3.52). This latter finding supports previous data suggesting that reproductive hormones act as cofactors in the etiology of cervical cancer...
- Childhood and adult cancer in twins: evidence from the Utah genealogyRachel E Neale
Childhood Cancer Research Group, 57 Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6HJ, United Kingdom
Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 14:1236-40. 2005..Mothers of twins have higher estrogen levels during pregnancy than mothers of singletons, therefore, assessment of cancer risk in twins may be informative...
- The effects of twins, parity and age at first birth on cancer risk in Swedish womenRachel E Neale
Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Australia
Twin Res Hum Genet 8:156-62. 2005..These findings lend weight to the hypothesis that hormonal factors influence the etiology of colorectal cancer in women, but argue against any strong effect of hormones on the development of melanoma or tumors of the thyroid...
- Does type 2 diabetes influence the risk of oesophageal adenocarcinoma?R E Neale
Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Australia
Br J Cancer 100:795-8. 2009..Diabetes increased the risk of OAC (adjusted odds ratio 1.59, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-2.43), although the risk was attenuated after further adjusting for body mass index (1.32, 95% CI 0.85-2.05)...
- Calcium, diet and fracture risk: a prospective study of 1898 incident fractures among 34 696 British women and menTimothy J Key
Cancer Epidemiology Unit, University of Oxford, Richard Doll Building, Roosevelt Drive, Oxford, OX3 7LF, UK
Public Health Nutr 10:1314-20. 2007..The risk factors for fractures are incompletely understood. An outstanding question concerns the optimal amount of dietary calcium needed to minimise the risk of fracture...
- Testicular cancer in twins: a meta-analysisR E Neale

Br J Cancer 98:171-3. 2008..1-1.6), providing indirect support for the hypothesis that in utero hormone variations influence risk of testicular cancer. The summary-estimate for dizygotic twins was 1.3 (1.0-1.7) and for monozygotic or same sex twins 1.4 (1.2-1.8)...
- An analysis of clustering of betapapillomavirus antibodiesK A Mallitt
Cancer and Population Studies Group, Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Australia
J Gen Virol 91:2062-7. 2010..The lack of clustering of specific viral types identified suggests that if there are betaPV types that are independently related to skin carcinogenesis, they are unlikely to be identified using standard epidemiological methods...

- Incidence of basal cell carcinoma multiplicity and detailed anatomic distribution: longitudinal study of an Australian populationNaomi M Richmond-Sinclair
Cancer and Population Studies Unit, Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
J Invest Dermatol 129:323-8. 2009..We conclude that actual BCC tumor burden is much greater in the population than is apparent from normal incidence rates. Anatomic distribution of BCC is consistent with general levels of sun exposure across body sites...

Viertel Centre for Research in Cancer Control, Queensland Cancer Fund, Spring Hill, Queensland, Australia
J Am Acad Dermatol 56:380-6. 2007..We tested the hypothesis that the phenotypic determinants and patterns of sun exposure that give rise to BCC on the head and trunk vary in a way that explains the anomalous site distribution...
