Purpose
Selenium has been suggested to be protective against breast cancer, but the evidence remains inconclusive. Hence, it is important to further examine the potential protective effect. This prospective cohort study investigates pre-diagnostic selenium intake in relation to breast cancer risk. In addition, we analyze serum selenium as a marker of dietary intake.
Methods
This study includes 17,035 women in the Malmö Diet and Cancer cohort. Dietary assessment and serum samples were collected at baseline (1991–1996). During 344,584 person-years of follow-up, 1,427 incident cases were retrieved. Cox regression analysis examined breast cancer risks adjusted for potential confounding factors. In addition, odds ratios (ORs) were estimated for 1186 cases and an equal number of controls in relation to quartiles (Q) of selenium intake and groups consisting of a combination of intake and serum selenium levels.
Results
No overall association between selenium intake, or a combination of intake and serum levels, and breast cancer risk was found. The adjusted relative risk for breast cancer in selenium intake Q4 versus Q1 was 0.96 (0.83–1.12) (Ptrend = 0.65). Similarly, adjusted the OR for breast cancer in selenium intake for Q4 versus Q1 was 0.97 (0.76–1.23). The kappa value, 0.096 (p = 0.001), showed poor agreement between serum selenium and selenium intake.
Conclusion
Our findings suggest that there is no overall association between selenium intake, or a combination of intake and serum levels, and breast cancer risk. Finally, our results showed a poor correlation between estimated selenium intake and serum selenium.
