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
