A total of 7, women living in and around Columbia, MO, who were free of cancer other than non-melanoma skin cancer, donated blood to the serum bank on one or more occasions between and At the time of each blood collection, interview information was obtained from participants on the major known breast cancer risk factors including age, height, weight, reproductive and menstrual histories, family history of breast cancer, medical conditions, and drug use, including oral contraceptives and menopausal hormone therapy.
Date of last menstrual period was obtained for women who were premenopausal at the time of each blood collection.
Inthe first follow-up ascertained breast cancers among women who were cancer-free at blood collection. A subset of these breast cancers was included in a of biomarker studies, including the measurement of sex steroid hormones, carotenoids, alpha-tocopherol, selenium, organochlorine pesticides, and PCBs. A more recent follow-up was completed inat which time an additional breast cancers were identified. Using the expanded group of breast cancer cases in the Columbia Missouri Serum Bank Follow-up Study, additional biomarker studies have been conducted, including how adipokines relate to breast cancer risk factors.
These analyses showed lower levels of adiponectin and higher levels of absolute plasminogen activator inhibitor aPAI-1 were associated with increasing body mass index, but not with breast cancer risk. In more recently completed analyses, a newly developed tandem mass spectrometry assay was used to measure a panel of 15 estrogens and estrogen metabolites in relation to postmenopausal breast cancer risk.
