HDL-cholesterol and breast cancer : a joint study in northern Italy and southern France.
The goal of the present study is to evaluate HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) as a marker of breast cancer (BC) risk.
It is based on several epidemiological and biological studies and is justified by the rising incidence of breast cancer throughout the world.
A hospital-based study on host-related risk factors and breast cancer, conducted with similar methods in northern Italy and southern France, provided the biological data, the information on the established BC risk factors and on nutrition for 307 cases and 329 controls.
This data set allowed for a thorough analysis of the relationship of HDL-C with established risk factors for BC and also of its association with BC at the time of diagnosis.
