Relation of height and body mass index to renal cell carcinoma in two million Norwegian men and women


, : Relation of height and body mass index to renal cell carcinoma in two million Norwegian men and women. American Journal of Epidemiology 160(12): 1168-1176

A positive association between body mass index (BMI) and renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has been observed. The association between height and RCC has been less clear. The authors explored these relations in a very large Norwegian cohort. Height and weight were measured in two million Norwegian men and women aged 20-74 years during 1963-2001. During follow-up, 6,453 cases of RCC were registered in the national cancer database.

Ester formation was lower at...

Potentiometric sensors are studied as viable candidates for the construction of high throughput DNA arrays. For preliminary investigations, such sensors were used in an HPLC setup in the present work. This avoided errors due to ionic contaminants...
