  1. Gallicchio L, Berndt S, McSorley M, Newschaffer C, Thuita L, Argani P, et al. Polymorphisms in estrogen-metabolizing and estrogen receptor genes and the risk of developing breast cancer among a cohort of women with benign breast disease. BMC Cancer. 2006;6:173 pubmed
    ..Although additional studies are needed to confirm or refute our findings, these results suggest that genetic markers may aid in the identification of women who are at risk for progression of BBD to cancer. ..

    Gallicchio L, McSorley M, Newschaffer C, Huang H, Thuita L, Hoffman S, et al. Body mass, polymorphisms in obesity-related genes, and the risk of developing breast cancer among women with benign breast disease. Cancer Detect Prev. 2007;31:95-101 pubmed
    ..The findings suggest that specific polymorphisms in the PON1 and LEPR genes may play a role in progression of BBD to breast cancer among post-menopausal Caucasian women. ..
  3. Gallicchio L, Chang H, Christo D, Thuita L, Huang H, Strickland P, et al. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in inflammation-related genes and mortality in a community-based cohort in Washington County, Maryland. Am J Epidemiol. 2008;167:807-13 pubmed publisher
    ..The authors' findings from this community-based prospective cohort study suggest that the selected SNPs are not associated with overall or cause-specific death, although CRP genotypes may be associated with systemic inflammation. ..

    ..Findings from this cohort study suggest that the selected SNPs are not associated with overall or cause-specific death, although several LEPR SNPs may be related to BMI and BMI change over time. ..
