Table 2 Hazard ratios (HR), 95 % confidence intervals (CI) and p values for breast and endometrial cancer analysis in relation to EIG121 STR lengths

From: A novel polymorphic repeat in the upstream regulatory region of the estrogen-induced gene EIG121 is not associated with the risk of developing breast or endometrial cancer

Category Statistical test Breast cancer Endometrial cancer
HR (95 % CI) p value HR (95 % CI) p value
