    • Alcohol Intake Between Menarche and First Pregnancy: A Prospective Study of Breast Cancer Risk 

      Liu, Ying; Colditz, Graham A.; Rosner, Bernard; Berkey, Catherine S.; Collins, Laura C.; Schnitt, Stuart J.; Connolly, James L.; Chen, Wendy Y.; Willett, Walter C.; Tamimi, Rulla M. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
      Background: Adult alcohol consumption during the previous year is related to breast cancer risk. Breast tissue is particularly susceptible to carcinogens between menarche and first full-term pregnancy. No study has ...
    • Benign breast disease, recent alcohol consumption, and risk of breast cancer: a nested case–control study 

      Tamimi, Rulla May; Byrne, Celia; Baer, Heather Joanne; Rosner, Bernie; Schnitt, Stuart Jay; Connolly, James Leo; Colditz, Graham A. (BioMed Central, 2005)
      Introduction: Alcohol consumption is a well-established risk factor for breast cancer. Some studies have suggested that the risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol consumption is greater for women with a history of ...
    • Columnar Cell Lesions and Subsequent Breast Cancer Risk: A Nested Case-Control Study 

      Aroner, Sarah A.; Collins, Laura Christine; Schnitt, Stuart Jay; Connolly, James Leo; Colditz, Graham A.; Tamimi, Rulla May (BioMed Central, 2010)
      Introduction: Histologic and genetic evidence suggests that at least some columnar cell lesions (CCL) of the breast represent precursor lesions in the low-grade breast neoplasia pathway. However, the risk of subsequent ...
    • Comparison of Molecular Phenotypes of Ductal Carcinoma In Situ and Invasive Breast Cancer 

      Tamimi, Rulla May; Baer, Heather Joanne; Marotti, Jonathan; Galan, Mark; Galaburda, Laurie; Fu, Yineng; Deitz, Anne C; Connolly, James Leo; Schnitt, Stuart Jay; Colditz, Graham A.; Collins, Laura Christine (BioMed Central, 2008)
      Introduction: At least four major categories of invasive breast cancer that are associated with different clinical outcomes have been identified by gene expression profiling: luminal A, luminal B, human epidermal growth ...
    • Expression of estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and Ki67 in normal breast tissue in relation to subsequent risk of breast cancer 

      Oh, Hannah; Eliassen, A Heather; Wang, Molin; Smith-Warner, Stephanie A; Beck, Andrew H; Schnitt, Stuart J; Collins, Laura C; Connolly, James L; Montaser-Kouhsari, Laleh; Polyak, Kornelia; Tamimi, Rulla M (2016)
      Although expression of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and cell proliferation marker Ki67 serve as predictive and prognostic factors in breast cancers, little is known about their roles in normal breast ...
    • Insulin-like growth factor-1, insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 and lobule type in the Nurses' Health Study II 

      Rice, Megan Siobhan; Tamimi, Rulla May; Connolly, James Leo; Collins, Laura Christine; Shen, Dejun; Pollak, Michael N; Rosner, Bernard Alfred; Hankinson, Susan Elizabeth; Tworoger, Shelley Slate (BioMed Central, 2012)
      Introduction: Previous research in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) and the NHSII observed that, among women diagnosed with benign breast disease (BBD), those with predominant type 1/no type 3 lobules (a marker of complete ...
    • Virtual Hematoxylin and Eosin Transillumination Microscopy Using Epi-Fluorescence Imaging 

      Giacomelli, Michael G.; Husvogt, Lennart; Vardeh, Hilde; Faulkner-Jones, Beverly E.; Hornegger, Joachim; Connolly, James L.; Fujimoto, James G. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      We derive a physically realistic model for the generation of virtual transillumination, white light microscopy images using epi-fluorescence measurements from thick, unsectioned tissue. We demonstrate this technique by ...
