Editor's Note: When the risk was evaluated according to breast cancer type, a significant association was observed between higher PLP levels and estrogen receptor-positive, progesterone receptor-positive, and estrogen receptor- and progesterone receptor-positive tumors.

Carotenoids weren't linked to the more common estrogen receptor-positive tumors.
During the follow-up period, researchers observed 2,112 incidences of breast cancer including 1,626 estrogen receptor-positive and 290 estrogen receptor-negative cases.
In cell-based studies, the lead compound called TPBM blocked the estrogen-dependent growth of estrogen receptor-positive human breast cancer cells, even tamoxifen-resistant cells, but left estrogen receptor-negative cells unharmed.
Thirty-nine percent of black women had estrogen receptor-negative tumors--associated with less favorable outcomes than estrogen receptor-positive tumors--compared to 22 percent of white women.
Beef, pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, and processed meats like salami and bologna all appeared to increase risk for a common form of breast cancer called estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.
During the 1990s and the beginning of the new millennium, when physicians were recommending that menopausal women take hormone replacement therapy, the rate of breast cancer increased and the percentage of estrogen receptor-positive tumors increased.
Although the risk was not associated with the vegetable-soy pattern, the risk was found to be associated with the meat-sweet pattern but only in postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive ([ER.
