  • Description
    "Light exposure at night has been hypothesised as one of potential mechanisms of breast carcinogenesis in the night shift workers through inhibition of melatonin synthesis. The aim of the study was to examine a number of determinants for night shift work in relation to 6-sulfatoxymelatonin (MT6s), primary melatonin metabolite." (extract from abstract)
