Preeclampsia and subsequent risk of cancer: update from the Jerusalem Perinatal Study

American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Ronit Calderon-MargalitOra Paltiel


The purpose of this study was to examine the association between preeclampsia and cancer incidence. The Jerusalem Perinatal Study is a population-based cohort of all births to 41,206 residents of Western Jerusalem from 1964-76. Cancer incidence to 2004 was assessed by linkage of the cohort with the Israel Cancer Registry. Cox's proportional hazards models were constructed to estimate the hazard ratio for cancer among women who had had preeclampsia. Preeclampsia was associated with a 1.23-fold increased risk of cancer at all sites, a 37% increased risk of breast cancer, and more than a doubling of ovarian cancer risk. Analysis by morphologic condition yielded significantly increased risks for malignancies that were classed as cystic mucinous and serous (relative risk, 1.96; 95% CI, 1.00-3.83) and for ductal, lobular, and medullary carcinomas (relative risk, 1.40; 95% CI, 1.07-1.83). No differential association was observed by sex of offspring. Our study suggests that the previously described protective effect of preeclampsia on cancer is not universal.

Cancer Incidence & Mortality

Cancer has emerged as a global concern due to its increase in incidence and mortality. Efforts are underway to evaluate and develop action plans to reduce the global burden of cancer. Currently, lung cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer are the leading causes of cancer mortality. Here is the latest research on cancer incidence and mortality.

Breast Cancer: BRCA1 & BRCA2

Mutations involving BRCA1, found on chromosome 17, and BRCA2, found on chromosome 13, increase the risk for specific cancers, such as breast cancer. Discover the last research on breast cancer BRCA1 and BRCA2 here.

Carcinoma, Squamous Cell

Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.
