This study at University of Chicago is exploring the effect that flaxseed has on biological markers (biomarkers) associated with breast cancer risk in the breast cells of women who have had ADH, ALH, LCIS, or DCIS and are not taking tamoxifen. The researchers needed to enroll up to 30 volunteers. They contacted the Army of Women (AOW) to help them complete recruitment. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on Feb. 12, 2014, and the researchers closed enrollment on July 15, 2014. The AOW provided them with seven women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
