Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Effect of Low Intensity Vibration (LIV) on Aromatase Inhibitor- Induced Musculoskeletal Dysfunction in Early Stage Breast Cancer Survivors
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of low intensity vibration (LIV) delivered for 10 minutes twice daily for 12 months on skeletal muscle function, in terms of energetic capacity measured by power generation on a stationary bicycle, among patients with early stage breast cancer planned to initiate aromatase inhibitor therapy who do not currently participate in regular exercise, compared to a wait- listed control.
This is a randomized phase II, two arm, single-center study designed to compare the effect of LIV versus wait-list control on the clinical parameter of energetic capacity, or power generation, in patients with early stage breast cancer receiving aromatase inhibitor therapy over a 12-month period. The primary endpoint is the 12-month change in energetic capacity since baseline.
Primary Objective To compare the effect of LIV delivered for 10 minutes twice daily for 12 months on skeletal muscle function, in terms of energetic capacity measured by power generation on a stationary bicycle, among patients with early stage breast cancer planned to initiate aromatase inhibitor therapy who do not currently participate in regular exercise, compared to a wait- listed control
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait-listed control upon muscle contractile properties including peak power, fatigue resistance, and recovery, measured by isokinetic knee extension
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait- listed control upon body composition (lean mass, total adiposity) measured by DXA scan
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait- listed control upon bone mineral density (T score) measured by DXA scan
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait- listed control upon muscle adipose infiltration measured by muscle density on peripheral quantitative CT imaging of the proximal and distal tibia and radius
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait-listed control on trabecular and cortical volumetric bone mineral density by high resolution peripheral quantitative CT of the distal and diaphyseal tibia and radius
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait- listed control on serologic markers of bone turnover, including TGF-beta and NTX
To compare the effect of LIV versus wait- listed controls upon patient reported outcome measures of fatigue (measured by the Basic Fatigue Inventory), muscle ache, and joint pain (measured by PRO-CTCAE)
To describe the feasibility of LIV in this patient population, defined by patient compliance and follow up with the intervention
Age ≥ 18 years
Diagnosis of DCIS or stage I, II, or III breast cancer 3 Planned to initiate an AI
Post- menopausal defined as ≥ 60 years of age, prior bilateral oophorectomy, or age over 50 and absence of any menstrual periods in the last 12 months, or FSH and estradiol in the menopausal range
Premenopausal patients receiving chemical ovarian suppression are allowed
Prior aromatase inhibitor use (if this is a second primary, for example) is allowed as long as it has been more than 12 months
Prior tamoxifen is allowed if switching to an aromatase inhibitor, as long as it has been 28 days between last tamoxifen dose and the baseline procedures (per the half-life of tamoxifen)
4. Completion of all primary therapy for breast cancer, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Patients must be ≥ 21 days from chemotherapy completion and ≥14 days from radiation completion. Ongoing HER2 targeted therapy with trastuzumab or pertuzumab, or TDM1 is allowed. Neratinib, immunotherapy, or CDK4/6 inhibitor therapy is not allowed.
5. Baseline T score > - 2.5 on DXA 6. Body weight less than 275 lbs., as dictated by the weight limit for the LIV platforms 7. ECOG performance status of 0-2 at the time of study enrollment 8. Informed consent and authorization of the release of health information must be obtained according to institutional guidelines 9. Physically able to stand unassisted for 10 minutes at a time 10. Currently not participating in regular exercise (defined as less than 90 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise per week measured by the RPAQ questionnaire)
Unwilling to co-enroll onto the companion FIT core study (IRB study #1707550885)
Diagnosis of other disorder affecting bone function or turnover, such as Paget's disease, renal osteodystrophy, parathyroid disorders, vitamin D deficiency/osteomalacia, chronic renal disease (Cr > 1.4)
a. Vitamin D will be checked during screening. Patients with Vit D < 20 can be enrolled if supplementation is initiated per the treating physician.
Prior history of non-traumatic, fragility bone fracture
Any muscle or neuromuscular disorder affecting muscle function, such as muscular dystrophy, myositis, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Use of bisphosphonates or denosumab within the prior 12 months
History of retinal detachment
Current or planned pacemaker
Current or planned cochlear implant
Any condition precluding power protocol participation (i.e. riding a stationary bicycle), including: NYHA class III or IV congestive heart failure, uncontrolled angina, myocardial infarction in the prior 12 months, orthopedic surgery in the previous 6 months or plans for orthopedic surgery during the study period, chronic uncontrolled pulmonary conditions such as uncontrolled asthma (symptoms > 2 days/week) or dyspnea requiring oxygen, symptomatic peripheral vascular disease, or any other comorbidity that would interfere with the ability to complete and comply with the protocol in the opinion of the investigator
Metastatic breast cancer
a. History of prior treated malignancies, other than breast cancer, that are now stable, are in remission, and do not require active therapy, are acceptable.
Patients requiring chronic anticoagulation are excluded from participation in the optional muscle biopsy collection.
