Genetic and non-genetic factors are believed to influence whether a woman with a BRCA1, BRCA2, and/or PALB2 mutation goes on to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer.

Researcher: Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, Ph.D, Ohio State University Institute, Columbus, OH
Broadcast date: September 7, 2016

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between your cardiovascular fitness and your body’s immune response, as both may be related to fatigue (tiredness), mood, pain sensitivity, memory, and concentration—known side effects of cancer and its treatments. By learning if people with better cardiovascular fitness have lower inflammation, researchers will be able to discover whether and how regular exercise benefits breast cancer survivors.
