  1. Premenopausal estradiol levels and the risk of breast cancer : a new method of controlling for day of the menstrual cycle.

    Article - En anglais

    Levels of total estradiol in premenopausal women vary widely over the course of the menstrual cycle with a spike at the time of ovulation and dissimilar patterns pre-and post-ovulation.

    Evaluating the association between breast cancer and premenopausal measurements of total estradiol when the measurements cannot be taken on a uniform day of the cycle is therefore a difficult methodological challenge.

    In a matched case-control study of breast cancer nested within a prospective study, premenopausal serum samples obtained up to 7 years before breast cancer diagnosis were available for total estradiol assay.
