Abstract

OBJECTIVE: We assessed the MnSOD Val9Ala polymorphism and its interaction with dietary antioxidant intake in ovarian cancer risk and survival. METHODS: The MnSOD polymorphism was assessed in 543 ovarian cancer cases and 1130 controls. We used regression analysis to model the association between genotype and risk, case-only analyses to estimate risk modification by dietary variables, and proportional hazard models for survival analysis. RESULTS: We found no association between this polymorphism and ovarian cancer risk or survival, nor was there evidence of any interaction with dietary antioxidant intake. CONCLUSION: The Val9Ala MnSOD polymorphism does not influence ovarian cancer risk or surv..
