Patterns in metabolite profile are associated with risk of more aggressive prostate cancer: a prospective study of 3057 matched case‐control sets from EPIC

Metabolomics may reveal novel insights into the aetiology of prostate cancer, for which few risk factors are established. We investigated the association between patterns in baseline plasma metabolite profile and subsequent prostate cancer risk, using data from 3057 matched case‐control sets from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC). We measured 119 metabolite…

Predicting circulating CA125 levels among healthy premenopausal women

Background: CA125 is the most promising ovarian cancer screening biomarker to date. Multiple studies reported CA125 levels vary by personal characteristics, which could inform personalized CA125 thresholds. However, this has not been well described in premenopausal women. Methods: We evaluated predictors of CA125 levels among 815 premenopausal women from the New England Case Control Study…
