Army of Women - Studies You Can Join

We are all about making progress possible – and this month we’ve made clear strides towards moving the needle for breast cancer prevention.  The Health of Women Study continues to be booming with new life, as the study now includes more than 40,000 participants.  We’ve also successfully closed recruitment for three studies launched through the Army of Women and have many more new studies in the pipeline for the coming months.  With progress and persistence at the forefront of all our minds, take a look at these open studies well deserving of our attention – and sign-up.

The Milk Study

We need breastfeeding moms anywhere in the US who have had a breast biopsy in the past or are scheduled to have a breast biopsy. Researchers are studying the breast cells normally found in breast milk to see if there are any epigenetic differences–which have the potential to be reversed–between women whose biopsies turn out to be healthy and those whose biopsies show a problem, such as cancer. Learning more about these epigenetic differences may eventually help researchers develop a way to provide women with information about their breast cancer risk.  The researchers have already enrolled more than 250 women, but most of the samples have come from Caucasian women. Since breast cancer risk factors differ among ethnic groups, the researchers are particularly interested in enrolling African-American women, Latinas, Asian women, and other ethnic minorities.

Sister Survivor: Improving the Survivorship Care of African-American Women with Breast Cancer

We need African-American breast cancer survivors living in Southern California (Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties) who are nearing completion of treatment or who completed surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation treatment 1-12 months ago, to participate in a breast cancer research study focused on follow-up care.

Latina Breast Cancer Initiative

We need Latina/Hispanic breast cancer survivors diagnosed with invasive breast cancer within the past 12 months ANYWHERE in the United States. In an effort to find the best way to help medical providers and Latinas diagnosed with breast cancer, researchers have developed a study to investigate Latinas’ experiences with cancer. The focus of this study is on quality of life and the psychological adjustment after breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. You don’t have to leave your house to participate! Interviews can be conducted in English or Spanish.

Low Dose Tamoxifen Breast Cancer Prevention Study

We need women age 25 or older who were diagnosed with a childhood, adolescent, or young adult cancer two or more years ago and received radiation treatment to the chest or axilla before the age of 40 to take part in a breast cancer prevention study being conducted by researchers in Duarte, Calif., Los Angeles, Calif., Boston, MA, Seattle, WA, Rochester, Minnesota, Memphis, Tenn., Atlanta, Georgia, Ann Arbor, Mich., and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
