Study Information
Risk Factors for Breast Cancer Lymphedema

The purpose of this study at the University of California, San Francisco is to better understand the signs and symptoms of chemotherapy neuropathy and the genetic (inherited) factors that increase risk of developing it. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 600 volunteers near San Francisco and they enlisted the Army of Women (AOW) to support the final stages of their recruitment efforts. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on June 10, 2015, and the researchers closed enrollment on Nov. 23, 2015, after the AOW provided them with 106 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.

Study Information
Biobehavioral Contributors to Cognition in Breast Cancer Survivors

This study aimed to identify psychosocial and behavioral factors associated with inflammation that may contribute to cognitive thinking (memory, attention, and processing speed) problems following chemotherapy. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 50 volunteers from the Army of Women (AOW) from the greater Austin, Texas area. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on September 28, 2016. The researchers closed enrollment on May 5, 2017, after the AOW provided them with 82 volunteers who were interested in enrolling in the study. The research team published the findings from this study in The Breast.

Study Information
Enhancing the Experience of Endocrine Therapy Study

Research shows that although some women do take their endocrine therapy daily, others do not take it regularly, stop taking it, or decide to switch to another type of endocrine therapy. The primary goal of this study was pilot test short videos designed to promote adherence to endocrine therapy. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 500 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 December 8, 2015. The researchers closed enrollment on March 28, 2016. Through the AOW, the research team identified 601 women who were interested in enrolling in the study. The research team published the study results in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.
