- IGF1 CA repeat polymorphisms, lifestyle factors and breast cancer risk in the Long Island Breast Cancer Study ProjectRebecca J Cleveland
Department of Epidemiology, School of Public Health and Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC 27599 7435, USA
Carcinogenesis 27:758-65. 2006..Our results demonstrate a role for alleles with fewer than (CA)19 repeats as a risk factor for breast cancer and also suggest that several traditional breast cancer risk factors modify the association of the IGF1 (CA)19 repeat genotype...
- Common genetic variations in the LEP and LEPR genes, obesity and breast cancer incidence and survivalRebecca J Cleveland
Department of Nutrition, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC 27599 7461, USA
Breast Cancer Res Treat 120:745-52. 2010..In summary, our results show that a common variant in LEP may be associated with the risk of developing breast cancer supporting the hypothesis that leptin is involved in breast carcinogenesis...
- Influence of prediagnostic recreational physical activity on survival from breast cancerRebecca J Cleveland
Department of Medicine, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27599 7280, USA
Eur J Cancer Prev 21:46-54. 2012..no RPA, the HR=0.61; 95% CI=0.39-0.94 and HR=1.00; 95% CI=0.65-1.54, respectively). This study provides support that RPA prior to breast cancer diagnosis improves survival...
- The association of diabetes with breast cancer incidence and mortality in the Long Island Breast Cancer Study ProjectRebecca J Cleveland
Department of Medicine, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, 27599 7280, USA
Cancer Causes Control 23:1193-203. 2012..Importantly, prior investigations have rarely considered the influence of factors associated with diabetes such as obesity, age at diabetes diagnosis, duration of diabetes, or diabetes treatments...

Thurston Arthritis Research Center, Department of Medicine, 3300 Thurston Building, CB 7280, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC 27599 7330, USA
Arthritis Res Ther 13:R169. 2011..The purpose of this study was to examine data from the Johnston County Osteoarthritis (OA) Project for independent associations of educational attainment, occupation and community poverty with tibiofemoral knee OA...
- Fat or fit: the joint effects of physical activity, weight gain, and body size on breast cancer riskLauren E McCullough
Department of Epidemiology, Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA
Cancer 118:4860-8. 2012..These include the minimum duration and intensity necessary for risk reduction and the optimal time period for occurrence, as well as subgroup effects, particularly with regard to tumor heterogeneity and body size...
- Polymorphisms in oxidative stress genes, physical activity, and breast cancer riskLauren E McCullough
Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina, CB 7435, McGavran Greenberg Hall, Chapel Hill, NC 27599 7435, USA
Cancer Causes Control 23:1949-58. 2012..Given the paradoxical effects of physical activity, the oxidative stress pathway is of interest. Genetic variation in CAT or antioxidant-related polymorphisms may mediate the physical activity-breast cancer association...
