PURPOSE: In oncology, RCTs are often beset by slow recruitment, limited generalizability, and strong preferences for interventions by patients and physicians. The cohort multiple randomized controlled trial (cmRCT) is an innovative design with the potential to overcome those challenges. In cmRCT, a prospective cohort serves as an infrastructure for multiple RCTs. We implemented cmRCT in a clinical breast cancer setting by creating UMBRELLA-a large prospective cohort of breast cancer and DCIS patients/survivors...

Diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer is a very emotionally aversive and stressful life event, which can lead to impaired cognitive functioning and mental health. Breast cancer survivors responding with repressive emotion regulation strategies often show less adaptive coping and adverse outcomes. We investigated cognitive functioning and neural correlates of emotion processing using ERPs. Self-report measures of depression, anxiety, and fatigue, as well as hair cortisol as an index of chronic stress, were assessed...

BACKGROUND: Data show that yoga is effective for improving health-related outcomes in breast cancer survivors. While breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among African-American women (AAW), AAW are less likely to engage in yoga compared to other ethnic groups. The goals of the current study were to assess the feasibility of an 8-week restorative yoga program among African-American breast cancer survivors (AA BCS). Specifically, study aims were to (1) measure changes in study outcomes in a restorative yoga (RY) group compared to a wait list control group, (2) assess adherence to the RY program, and (3) assess program satisfaction among study participants...

BACKGROUND: Women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) have average life expectancies of about 2 years, and report high levels of disease-related symptoms including pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, psychological distress, and functional impairment. There is growing recognition of the limitations of medical approaches to managing such symptoms. Yoga is a mind-body discipline that has demonstrated a positive impact on psychological and functional health in early stage breast cancer patients and survivors, but has not been rigorously studied in advanced cancer samples...

Upper limb strength deficits are frequently observed following breast cancer and its treatments. It is currently unknown whether these unilateral deficits can be corrected by a standard bilateral strength training intervention. Twenty three survivors of breast cancer were included in this analysis. Fourteen performed a 16 week resistance training (RT) intervention, 9 were assigned to a usual care waitlist control group. Electromyographic (EMG) analysis of the pectoralis major and triceps brachii were monitored during three maximal isometric contractions and a fatiguing endurance task...

BACKGROUND: Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) and insomnia are major complaints in breast cancer survivors (BC). Aerobic training (AT), the standard therapy for CRF in BC, shows only minor to moderate treatment effects. Other evidence-based treatments include cognitive behavioral therapy, e.g., sleep education/restriction (SE) and mindfulness-based therapies. We investigated the effectiveness of a 10-week multimodal program (MT) consisting of SE, psycho-education, eurythmy- and painting-therapy, administered separately or in combination with AT (CT) and compared both arms to AT alone...

PURPOSE: We explored relationships between genetic variability and behaviorally related variables (body mass index and exercise frequency) for inflammation, and perceived cognitive function (PCF) for breast cancer survivors (BCS). Our primary aim was to explore relationships between select single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for IL1R1, IL6, TNF genes, and PCF. Our secondary aim was to explore whether body mass index (BMI) and exercise frequency moderate these relationships. METHODS: We conducted an exploratory candidate gene substudy...

BACKGROUND: Psychosocial and inflammatory factors have been associated with fatigue in breast cancer survivors. Nevertheless, the relative contribution and/or interaction of these factors with cancer-related fatigue have not been well documented. METHOD: This cross-sectional study enrolled 111 stage 0-III breast cancer patients treated with breast surgery followed by whole breast radiotherapy. Fatigue was measured by the total score of the Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory-20...

BACKGROUND: Women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy suffer from a range of detrimental disease and treatment related side-effects. Exercise has shown to be able to counter some of these side-effects and improve physical function as well as quality of life. The primary aim of the study is to investigate and compare the effects of two different exercise regimens on the primary outcome cancer-related fatigue and the secondary outcomes muscle strength, function and structure, cardiovascular fitness, systemic inflammation, skeletal muscle gene activity, health related quality of life, pain, disease and treatment-related symptoms in women with breast cancer receiving chemotherapy...

PURPOSE: A puzzling observation pertaining to the impact of breast cancer (BC) on memory is the frequently reported dissociation between BC survivors self-reported memory problems and memory performance. We evaluated the hypothesis that the dissociation is related to the fact that the objective memory measures previously used assessed retrospective memory (RM) and did not tap prospective memory (PM), a domain about which survivors are complaining. METHODS: In a case-healthy-control (N = 80) cross-sectional study, the Memory for Intention Screening Test was used to assess PM and the Wechsler Logical Memory Test was employed to evaluate RM...

To further inform implementation efforts of a telephone-based physical activity (PA) intervention for breast cancer survivors, we assessed the PA, fatigue, mood, and quality of life of the peer mentors/coaches who delivered the program. The coaches were volunteers with the American Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery program. The coaches (n = 18) delivered the PA intervention to 76 breast cancer survivors in a randomized controlled trial. Coaches completed assessments of PA (self-report), motivational readiness for PA, and standardized measures of psychosocial variables at the start of coaching and at study exit...
