Abstract

To assess heterogeneity, associations between nongenetic risk factors and tumor subtypes were investigated. Data on risk factors and tumor subtypes were pooled from 34 studies participating in the Breast Cancer Association Consortium and risk associations were analyzed for ER, PR, HER2, CK5 or CK5/6, and EGFR on a large sample size
