Fatigue related to breast cancer treatment

Fatigue, generally described as feeling tired, weak or exhausted, affects most people during cancer treatment. Cancer-related fatigue can be caused by the side effects of treatment or by the cancer itself. (mayoclinic.org)

 

To help understand why this fatigue occurs, Alpha Research is currently conducting a study to analyze people being treated with taxane-based chemotherapy to help formulate treatments that are less offensive to the health of breast cancer patients.  


Individuals interested in supporting science and improving the health of cancer patients can apply as long as they meet the inclusion requirements.

Cancer related Fatigue is one of the most common and unaddressed cancer symptoms. Treatment with chemotherapy, particularly taxane Based regimens, strongly associated with fatigue onset and worsening. This study will determine a clinically significant cut off for fatigue assessments in breast cancer.

 

Anyone 18 year or older diagnosed with pathologically documented locally advanced metastatic breast cancer and to receive taxane based chemotherapy are eligible for the study. It's hard to deal with breast cancer and it's a tough time in life, but you will be contributing hugely to the future of management of breast cancer fatigue.
