The purpose of this study is to better understand why some breast cancer survivors who have chronic pain and are treated with duloxetine will have their level of pain improve, while others will not. Women with breast cancer who have chronic pain will be asked to enroll. Participants will be treated with duloxetine for 7 weeks in order to determine how the medication affects both their level of pain and their sensitivity to pain. The research team hopes to understand more about why breast cancer survivors develop pain after their diagnosis and treatment, and why some people respond better to this type of treatment. The research team needs 56 women to participate in this study.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about what breast cancer survivors age 65 and older know about the physical and functional impairments related to their breast cancer and its treatment. It will also help the research team understand what can be done to help people recover from breast cancer. This study is seeking 50 breast cancer survivors and 50 healthcare providers for a one-time, one-hour phone interview.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether using Temodar and Kadcyla together decreases the chance of patients with HER2+ metastatic breast cancer developing new brain metastases. Approximately 18 participants will take part in this study. Participants enrolled in this trial may be eligible to receive compensation for their travel expenses.
The purpose of this study is to learn how two different medications affect the breast: an estrogen-free selective progesterone-receptor modulator called UPA vs. a low-dose oral contraceptive pill. This is a randomized, phase I clinical trial. Participants have a 50% chance of receiving the UPA pill, and 50% chance of receiving the low-dose oral contraceptive.
This study aims to identify non-genetic factors that cause only one twin in a pair to get breast cancer. This information could help researchers identify ways to help prevent breast cancer from occurring.
The goal of this study is to better understand what women are thinking about and feeling as they decide on their cancer treatments. The results of this study may help researchers develop new interventions that may better assist women newly diagnosed with breast cancer with their treatment decisions.
The purpose of this study is to see how well two different types of group programs—mindfulness-meditation classes and survivorship education classes—meet the needs of young survivors. Up to 360 women will take part in this study. Three institutions are collaborating on this project: University of California, Los Angeles, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Johns Hopkins University
This study is designed to identify both signs and symptoms of breast cancer-related lymphedema and genetic factors that predict whether patients are at increased risk for developing lymphedema. The researchers intend to use the results to develop and test new approaches to prevent or reduce the risk of lymphedema developing following breast cancer treatment.
Genetic and non-genetic factors are believed to influence whether a woman with a BRCA1, BRCA2, and/or PALB2 mutation goes on to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer. The study is trying to identify which hormonal, reproductive, and lifestyle factors may increase cancer risk in this high-risk group.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between your cardiovascular fitness and your body’s immune response, as both may be related to fatigue (tiredness), mood, pain sensitivity, memory, and concentration—known side effects of cancer and its treatments. By learning if people with better cardiovascular fitness have lower inflammation, researchers will be able to discover whether and how regular exercise benefits breast cancer survivors.
