Program in Epidemiology, Division of Public Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA, USA
Am J Epidemiol 164:56-62. 2006..In general, a woman's risk of endometrial cancer appears to be influenced by similar risk factors regardless of disease severity...
- Nucleotide excision repair genotype and the incidence of endometrial cancer: effect of other risk factors on the associationJocelyn M Weiss
Program in Epidemiology, Division of Public Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Department of Epidemiology, School of Public Health and Community Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
Gynecol Oncol 103:891-6. 2006..Certain nucleotide excision repair (NER) genotypes appear to be associated with an altered risk of endometrial cancer. These associations could be modified by characteristics and exposures that themselves influence risk of disease...
