Identifying risk factors for breast cancer specific to women in their 40s could inform screening decisions.
To determine what factors increase risk for breast cancer in women aged 40 to 49 years and the magnitude of risk for each factor.
MEDLINE (January 1996 to
Circulating concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25-(OH)D] are used to define vitamin D deficiency. Current clinical 25-(OH)D targets based on associations with intermediate markers of bone metabolism may not reflect optimal levels for other chronic diseases and do not account for know
Timing of initiation of screening for breast cancer is controversial in the United States.
To determine the threshold relative risk (RR) at which the harm–benefit ratio of screening women aged 40 to 49 years equals that of biennial screening for women aged 50 to 74 years.
Despite recent improvements in survival after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), U.S. hospitals vary 2-fold in their 30-day risk-standardized mortality rates (RSMRs). Nevertheless, information is limited on hospital-level factors that may be associated with RSMRs.
