  1. Breast cancer and serum organochlorines : a prospective study among white, black, and Asian women.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    Five small case-control studies have examined the relationship between exposure to organochlorines and the risk of breast cancer and have found inconsistent results.

    In these studies, organochlorine levels in breast cancer patients were measured after for at most 6 months before) diagnosis.

    Purpose 

    We tested the hypothesis that organochlorines are a risk factor for breast cancer, using prospectively gathered data on serum levels of DDE [1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethylene] (the main metabolite of the pesticide DDT [2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) - 1,1,1-trichloroethane]) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
