Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Exercise Post-Diagnosis of Breast Cancer
The investigators are doing this study to determine if there are body composition changes after a 12-week exercise program in breast cancer patients and determine what factors contribute to sustained physical activity after the 12-week exercise program intervention.
The study is enrolling breast cancer patients up to 2 years after their diagnosis in a 12-week exercise program. The participants will either participate in: Group 1-participating in an exercise program with biometric evaluations or Group 2-biometric evaluations but not participating in the exercise program. At the end of the 12-week exercise program, participants in Group 1 will be randomized to either: a) continuing with exercise group classes or b) continuing with exercise individual classes. Both Group 1a and 1b participants will be followed for the remainder of the year and be evaluated for continued physical activity. All Group study participants' biometrics will be assessed at baseline and at the end of 12-weeks, with continued annual medical review follow-up for a total of 5 years.
New diagnosis of breast cancer (within the past 2 years, any subtype, stage I-III)
Can be undergoing neo/adjuvant treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or endocrine therapy)
Participant is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study including undergoing scheduled exercise sessions, completing questionnaires and biometric/biomarker studies
Participant must be able to lie flat on their back for up to 10 minutes
Participant must be able to stand without aid for at least 2 minutes
Participant with breast cancer recurrence
Metastatic breast cancer
Uncontrolled psychiatric disorder that can affect self-assessment
Participants with any internal artifact (e.g. pacemakers, internal fixation, arthroplasty) or other physical impairment that would alter the body composition assessment
