  • Brain Health in Breast Cancer Survivors

    open to eligible females ages 35-65

    Endocrine therapy (ET) is widely used to treat hormone receptor positive breast cancer and prevent recurrence by downregulating estrogen function. However, ETs readily cross the blood brain barrier and interfere with the action of estrogen in the brain. Estrogen supports cognition and menopausal status is closely linked to cognitive health in women. This has raised concern that anti-estrogen ETs may affect cognition and brain health in breast cancer survivors. However, evidence across existing studies is inconsistent and these effects remain poorly understood. The incomplete understanding of the effects of ET are likely due to limitations of earlier studies - namely, the under-appreciation of the role of menopausal status and insensitivity of standard cognitive measures. This research project will address these earlier limitations by specifically comparing ET effects by menopausal status, and using highly sensitive, task-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) measures to assess the effects of ET on brain function.

  • Intervening on Women's Health for Rural Young Breast Cancer Survivors

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multi-component intervention to improve young breast cancer survivors' engagement in goal-concordant oncofertility care, concurrently with observing and gathering information on how the intervention is implemented. The investigators hypothesize that implementation of the intervention will result in increased young breast cancer survivors' engagement in goal-concordant oncofertility care.

  • MyMenoPlan: Online Resource for Improving Women's Menopause Knowledge and Informed Decision-making

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    As part of a National Institute on Aging -funded R01, the investigators developed an evidence-based, multi-media digital resource entitled MyMenoPlan to help women learn about the menopause transition, and the symptoms and treatments of perimenopause/menopause. MyMenoPlan is also designed to help women learn about the effectiveness of treatments for a comprehensive list of midlife symptoms and compare treatments that may help with the specific symptoms women are experiencing.

  • Phase IIB Trial of Bazedoxifene Plus Conjugated Estrogens

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Women at risk for development of breast cancer and experiencing vasomotor menopausal symptoms (hot flashes) will be randomized to bazedoxifene (BZA) plus conjugated estrogens (CE) for 6 months versus a wait list control. Two risk factors for development of breast cancer will be studied pre-study and after 6 months: fibroglandular volume (FGV) on mammogram as assessed by Volpara software and proliferation by Ki-67 immunocytochemistry in benign breast tissue acquired by random periareolar fine needle aspiration (RPFNA). Change in biomarkers will be compared between groups.
