Abstract

The CYP19 gene codes for the aromatase enzyme that is involved in the synthesis of oestrogens. This case-control study examines the relationship between a tetranucleotide repeat sequence in the CYP19 gene and the development of male breast cancer. No significant differences were found between male breast cancer cases and controls.
