Subjects with a higher urinary 2-OHE/16-OHE ratio were less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, but only when urine samples were collected prior to breast cancer treatment (OR(Tertile3(T3)versusTertile1(T1))=, 95% CI (, )). In contrast, a higher 2-OHE/16-OHE ratio was significantly associated with breast cancer among subjects providing urine specimens after treatment initiation (OR(T3versusT1)=, 95% CI (, )). This observed cross-over modification occurred within both pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women, and independent of body mass index or recent dietary intake.
