Leukocyte telomere length in relation to pancreatic cancer risk: a prospective study.

Leukocyte telomere length in relation to pancreatic cancer risk: a prospective study. Several studies have examined leukocyte telomere length (LTL) as a possible predictor for cancer at various organ sites. The hypothesis originally motivating many of these studies was that shorter telomeres would be associated with an increase in cancer risk; the results of epidemiologic studies have been inconsistent, however, and suggested positive, negative, or null associations. Two studies have addressed the association of LTL in relation to pancreatic cancer risk and the results are contrasting. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention Pubmed
