Midcycle vs Perimenstrual A second meta-analysis of the difference in the rates of disease recurrence and/or death for women treated perimenstrually vs women treated midcycle, including the studies of Hrushesky et al. (1989), Ville et al. (1990), Senie et al. (1991) and Badwe et al. 029), with women treated mid-cycle experiencing a lower rate of disease recurrence and/or death.

Women resected in midcycle days 7-21, which includes the only luteal phase, had a survival probability of 71 %. Women resected near the menstrual period (0-6, 21-36) had a 20% 10 year survival probability.

The table arranges the likelihood of breast cancer cure according to which quadrant of the menstrual cycle the operation was performed.

In parallel with in vitro studies (Endo et al. 1994), many of the mutations found in heterocyclic amineinduced tumors appear to be associated with the guanine nucleotide, a finding that provides circumstantial evidence for the involvement of PhIPguanine adducts in tumorigenesis. To date however, the principal genes harboring mutations in mammary gland tumors induced by PhIP in rats remain elusive (Ushijima et al. 1994). G. Snyderwine Epilogue Humans are continuously exposed to low levels of carcinogenic agents from diet and environment, and thus exposure to promotional factors, such as dietary fat, might have a pivotal influence on human carcinogenesis.
