The purpose of this study at the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation in Santa Monica, CA, is to explore whether bacteria and viruses are found in breast ductal fluid. The researchers wanted to enroll 100 women. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on November 14, 2012. The researchers were able to close enrollment on March 3, 2013, after the Army of Women provided them with 211 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
