Title: Br J Cancer 2002;86:1436-1439
Reference: Statin use, hyperlipidemia, and the risk of breast cancer
No direct link.

Hydroxymethyl glutaryl coenzyme A inhibitors (‘statins’) are carcinogenic in rodents and an increased incidence of breast cancer was reported among pravastin users in one randomized trial. We conducted a case-control study in the General Practice Research Database (GPRD) to evaluate the risk of breast cancer among 50- to 79-year-old women treated with statins for hyperlipidemia. Case and control women were matched by age, general practice, duration of prescription...

Title: Br J Cancer 2000;83:1556-1558
Reference: The incidence of breast cancer in the General Practice Research Database compared with national cancer registration data
No direct link.

Breast cancer incidence rates in the UK from 1990 to 1996 among women aged 35-69 estimated from the General Practice Research Database (GPRD) were closely similar to those reported by the Office for National Statistics from cancer registration data (ONS). The GPRD is a valuable and up-to-date resource for further study of the incidence of breast cancer in the UK as well ...
