Reducing breast cancer recurrence with weight loss
Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer among women in developed countries. Obesity is a major risk factor for breast cancer recurrence and mortality in both pre- and postmenopausal women. Co-morbid medical conditions are common among breast cancer
survivors. According to the study by the The Exercise and Nutrition to
Enhance Recovery and Good Health for You (ENERGY) study is a 4-year
randomized clinical trial of 693 overweight/obese women aged ≥21years
diagnosed with any early stage breast cancer (stages I[≥1cm]-III) within the previous five years, posted in PubMed, this trial is strategically designed as a vanguard for a fully-powered trial of women who will be evaluated for breast cancer recurrence
and disease-free survival. Participants were recruited between 2010 and
2012 at four sites, had completed initial therapies, and had a body
mass index between 25 and 45kg/m(2). The intervention featured a
group-based cognitive-behavioral weight loss program with telephone
counseling and tailored newsletters to support initial weight loss and
subsequent maintenance, with the goal of 7% weight loss at two years.
This study has high potential to have a major impact on clinical
management and outcomes after a breast cancer diagnosis. This trial initiates the effort to establish weight loss support for overweight or obese.
