      Chen, Sairah Lai Fa; Braaten, Tonje Bjørndal; Borch, Kristin Benjaminsen; Ferrari, Pietro; Sandanger, Torkjel M; Nøst, Therese Haugdahl (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Introduction: Only a small number of studies have examined the impact of combined lifestyle behaviors on cancer incidence, and never in a Norwegian population. Purpose: To examine linear and nonlinear associations of ...
    • Gene expression in blood reflects smoking exposure among cancer-free women in the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) postgenome cohort 

      Baiju, Nikita; Sandanger, Torkjel M; Sætrom, Pål; Nøst, Therese Haugdahl (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Active smoking has been linked to modulated gene expression in blood. However, there is a need for a more thorough understanding of how quantitative measures of smoking exposure relate to differentially expressed genes ...
