Study Review

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of over-the-counter personal care products on women’s breast cells. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 20 volunteers and used the Army of Women (AOW) as one of their recruitment sources. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on August 17, 2016. The researchers closed enrollment on May 1, 2017. The AOW provided them with 11 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.



Love Research Army

We combat the disparities that exist in research by challenging the scientific community to launch studies that are as inclusive and diverse as the people that breast cancer affects.
