Long-term use of antibiotics possibly linked with increased risk of breast cancer

JAMA Embargo Lifted Immediately for study on "Antibiotic Use in Relation to the Risk of Breast Cancer" by Dr. Velicer et al and the accompanying editorial, "Antibiotics and Breast Cancer - What is the Meaning of This?" by Drs. Ness and Cauley in this week's issue of JAMA.

It has come to our attention that the embargo for these two JAMA articles (which was set for tomorrow, February 17 at 3 p.m. central time) was broken with a story published yesterday. Because this information has now been made public, we are immediately lifting the embargo on these two reports, so that other media outlets also can release the story now (and do not have to wait until the scheduled time of lifting the embargo).

The JAMA editors thank all of the journalists who abide by the JAMA/Archives embargoes each week. Please call or email the JAMA/Archives media relations department at 312-464-JAMA or mediarelations@jama-archives.org, if you have questions.
