Relationship between relative leukocyte telomere length (LTL) and age by biopsy diagnosis. Individual LTL measurements (black) and linear regression fit to the individual measurements (grey). a Relationship between LTL and age in women with proliferative diagnosis (N = 141); Spearman’s correlation coefficient: −0.12 (P = 0.14). b Relationship between LTL and age in women with non-proliferative diagnosis (N = 54); Spearman’s correlation coefficient: −0.16 (P = 0.24)
