    • Intake of dietary flavonoids and risk of epithelial ovarian cancer1234 

      Cassidy, Aedín; Huang, Tianyi; Rice, Megan S; Rimm, Eric B; Tworoger, Shelley S (American Society for Nutrition, 2014)
      Background: The impact of different dietary flavonoid subclasses on risk of epithelial ovarian cancer is unclear, with limited previous studies that have focused on only a few compounds. Objective: We prospectively examined ...
    • Mammographic density and breast cancer risk: a mediation analysis 

      Rice, Megan S.; Bertrand, Kimberly A.; VanderWeele, Tyler J.; Rosner, Bernard A.; Liao, Xiaomei; Adami, Hans-Olov; Tamimi, Rulla M. (BioMed Central, 2016)
      Background: High mammographic density (MD) is a strong risk factor for breast cancer. However, it is unclear whether high MD is an intermediate phenotype or whether breast cancer risk factors influence breast cancer risk ...

      Background: Inter-women and intra-women comparisons of mammographic density (MD) are needed in research, clinical and screening applications; however, MD measurements are influenced by mammography modality (screen film/digital) ...
    • Tubal ligation, hysterectomy and epithelial ovarian cancer in the New England Case-Control Study 

      Rice, Megan Siobhan; Murphy, Megan; Vitonis, Allison F.; Cramer, Daniel William; Titus, Linda J.; Tworoger, Shelley Slate; Terry, Kathryn Lynne (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013)
      Previous studies have observed that tubal ligation and hysterectomy are associated with a decreased risk of ovarian cancer; however little is known about whether these associations vary bysurgical characteristics, individual ...
