Department of Social Science and Public Health, School of Basic Medical Science, Jiujiang University.

Previous observational studies have inconsistently suggested that poor sleep is a novel risk factor for breast cancer (BC). However, these studies mainly focused on sleep duration; other sleep domains were rarely reported. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of a broad range of sleep domains with the risk of BC incidence. Read More

Genetic polymorphism of catechol-O-methyltransferase modulates the association of green tea consumption and lung cancer.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 Aug 28. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Department of Public Health, Chung Shan Medical University.

Tea polyphenols are strong antioxidants, which can be rapidly O-methylated by catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT). Thus, it is possible that the genetic polymorphism of COMT can modulate the association of green tea consumption and lung cancer. Here, we designed a case-control study to evaluate the combined effect of green tea consumption and COMT genotypes on the risk of lung cancer. Read More

Cervical cancer screening uptake in women aged between 15 and 64 years in Mozambique.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 Jul 16. Epub 2018 Jul 16.

EPIUnit-Institute of Public Health.

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in Mozambique, reflecting the high prevalence of both human papillomavirus and HIV infections. A national screening program for cervical cancer was started in 2009, using the visual inspection with acetic acid and cryotherapy, targeting women aged 30-55 years. We aimed to estimate the self-reported prevalence and determinants of cervical cancer screening uptake in Mozambique. Read More

The intervention mechanism of folic acid for benzo(a)pyrene toxic effects in vitro and in vivo.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 Jul 16. Epub 2018 Jul 16.

College of Food Science and Engineering, Wuhan Polytechnic University, Wuhan.

Folic acid is a necessary micronutrient for normal human growth and development. Benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) is a ubiquitously distributed environmental pollutant and its metabolite, benzo(a)pyrene-diol-epoxide, is known to exert a strong teratogenic and carcinogenic effect on the body's tissues and cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism by which folic acid can inhibit the toxic effects of BaP both in vivo and in vitro. Read More

Enhanced exposure assessment and genome-wide DNA methylation in World Trade Center disaster responders.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 Jul 11. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

Tisch Cancer Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City, New York.

DNA methylation has emerged as a promising target linking environmental exposures and cancer. The World Trade Center (WTC) responders sustained exposures to potential carcinogens, resulting in an increased risk of cancer. Previous studies of cancer risk in WTC-exposed responders were limited by the deficiency in quantitative and individual information on exposure to carcinogens. Read More

Consumption of garlic and its interactions with tobacco smoking and alcohol drinking on esophageal cancer in a Chinese population.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 Jul 11. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

Department of Epidemiology, Fielding School of Public Health, University of California.

Garlic consumption has been associated inversely with esophageal cancer (EC); however, its interactions with tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption have never been evaluated in an epidemiological study. We evaluated the potential interactions between garlic intake and tobacco smoking as well as alcohol consumption in a population-based case-control study with 2969 incident EC cases and 8019 healthy controls. Epidemiologic data were collected by face-to-face interviews using a questionnaire. Read More

Histopathologic study from a colorectal cancer screening in Chile: results from the first 2 years of an international collaboration between Chile and Japan.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 Jun 28. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Human Pathology, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

A national colorectal cancer (CRC) screening program began in Chile in 2012, which is an international collaboration between Japan and Chile and is based on a standardized protocol supported by Tokyo Medical and Dental University. We describe the results from the first 2 years of screening at one public hospital in Punta Arenas, Chile. Of 4124 asymptomatic individuals aged between 50 and 75 years, 485 participants with immunological fecal occult blood test values of at least 100 ng/ml and/or those with family histories of CRC underwent colonoscopies.

Trace of survivin in cancer.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 May 29. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Pathobiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, Division of Biotechnology, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran.

Survivin is one of the most cancer-specific proteins overexpressed in almost all malignancies, but is nearly undetectable in most normal tissues in adults. Functionally, as a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis family, survivin has been shown to inhibit apoptosis and increase proliferation. The antiapoptotic function of survivin seems to be related to its ability to inhibit caspases directly or indirectly. Read More

Impact of absence of consensual cutoff time distinguishing between synchronous and metachronous metastases: illustration with colorectal cancer.

Eur J Cancer Prev 2018 May 5. Epub 2018 May 5.

Digestive Cancer Registry of Burgundy.

Staging is essential for scientific exchanges on colorectal cancer. Lack of a consensual definition for synchronous and metachronous metastases for colorectal cancer may introduce artifactual differences between epidemiological studies according to stage. We investigated how variations in the cutoff for the definition of synchronous metastases influenced the stage-specific distribution and incidence and the survival of stage IV patients. Read More
