METHODS: Patients included 2,619 Nurses' Health Study participants who were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer between 1982 and 1998 and completed a dietary questionnaire more than 1 year after diagnosis. Participants were followed through 2002 (median = 9 years). During follow-up, 414 patients died of any cause, 242 patients died of breast cancer, and 172 patients died from causes other than breast cancer. Women with in situ or metastatic disease at diagnosis were excluded. We used Cox proportional hazards models to evaluate prospective associations of prudent and Western dietary patterns assessed both before and after diagnosis with time to event after diagnosis. RESULTS: In multivariate-adjusted analyses assessed after diagnosis, the Western and prudent dietary patterns were unrelated to all-cause or breast cancer mortality.
