Resumen The objective of this German population-based case-control study was to determine whether night work increases the risk of breast cancer. The GENICA (gene environment interaction and breast cancer) study involved interviews to assess shift work information in 857 breast cancer cases and 892 controls. Data were analyzed using conditional logistic regression models, adjusting for potential confounders. Among 1749 women, 56 cases and 57 controls worked in night shifts for one year or more. Long-term night work was associated with a modest but not significant increase in breast cancer risk, while having ever done night work was not. However the precision of the results was limited by a low prevalence of night work in this study population.
