    • Associations of obesity and circulating insulin and glucose with breast cancer risk: a Mendelian randomization analysis. 

      Shu, X; Wu, L; Khankari, NK; Shu, X-O; Wang, TJ; Michailidou, K; Bolla, MK; Wang, Q; Dennis, J; Milne, RL; Schmidt, MK; Pharoah, PDP; Andrulis, IL; Hunter, DJ; Simard, J; Easton, DF; Zheng, W; Breast Cancer Association Consortium (2019-06)
      Background In addition to the established association between general obesity and breast cancer risk, central obesity and circulating fasting insulin and glucose have been linked to the development of this common malignancy. ...
    • Genetic Risk Score Mendelian Randomization Shows that Obesity Measured as Body Mass Index, but not Waist:Hip Ratio, Is Causal for Endometrial Cancer.

      Background The strongest known risk factor for endometrial cancer is obesity. To determine whether SNPs associated with increased body mass index (BMI) or waist-hip ratio (WHR) are associated with endometrial cancer risk, ...
    • Influence of obesity-related risk factors in the aetiology of glioma. 

      Disney-Hogg, L; Sud, A; Law, PJ; Cornish, AJ; Kinnersley, B; Ostrom, QT; Labreche, K; Eckel-Passow, JE; Armstrong, GN; Claus, EB; Il'yasova, D; Schildkraut, J; Barnholtz-Sloan, JS; Olson, SH; Bernstein, JL; Lai, RK; Swerdlow, AJ; Simon, M; Hoffmann, P; Nöthen, MM; Jöckel, K-H; Chanock, S; Rajaraman, P; Johansen, C; Jenkins, RB; Melin, BS; Wrensch, MR; Sanson, M; Bondy, ML; Houlston, RS (2018-04)
      <h4>Background</h4>Obesity and related factors have been implicated as possible aetiological factors for the development of glioma in epidemiological observation studies. We used genetic markers in a Mendelian randomisation ...
    • Mendelian randomisation analysis provides no evidence for a relationship between adult height and testicular cancer risk. 

      Levy, M; Hall, D; Sud, A; Law, P; Litchfield, K; Dudakia, D; Haugen, TB; Karlsson, R; Reid, A; Huddart, RA; Grotmol, T; Wiklund, F; Houlston, RS; Turnbull, C (2017-09)
      Observational studies have suggested anthropometric traits, particularly increased height are associated with an elevated risk of testicular cancer (testicular germ cell tumour). However, there is an inconsistency between ...
