  1. Characteristics relating to ovarian cancer risk : collaborative analysis of 12 US case-control studies. IV: the pathogenesis of epithelial ovarian cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    Two hypotheses have been proposed to explain the reduced risk of epithelial ovarian cancer associated with pregnancy and oral contraceptive use.

    The first states that some sequelae of ovulation increase the likelihood of malignancy and that pregnancies and oral contraceptives protect by suppressing ovulation.

    The second hypothesis states that circulating levels of pituitary gonadotropins increase the risk of malignancy and that pregnancies and oral contraceptives protect by suppressing secretion of these hormones.
