Study Information
Weight Loss and Breast Cancer Survivors

This study at the University of Minnesota is researching if weight loss increases or decreases certain biomarkers that are associated with breast cancer risk, recurrence, and quality of life. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 20 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Love Research Army members on May 28, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on July 14, 2009, after the Love Research Army provided them with 45 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
