Study of Safety and Effectiveness of Motiva® Breast Implants

Consider volunteering to participate in a breast implant research study. The study sponsor is seeking participants for breast reconstruction for:

  • Immediate reconstruction:  implant placement immediately after a mastectomy (i.e. during the same procedure)
  • Delayed reconstruction: implant placement at a later date after a mastectomy (i.e. during a separate procedure)
  • Revision reconstruction: implant replacement to change size/type, and/or to correct complications from previous surgery

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of Motiva Implants®. Motiva® USA, the study’s sponsor, is a subsidiary of Establishment Labs – a global medical device manufacturer whose smooth silicone gel breast implants are commercially available in more than 70 countries.

Auricular Point Acupressure to Self-Manage Aromatase Inhibitor Musculoskeletal Symptoms in Breast Cancer Survivors

Severe joint pain and muscle stiffness are common side effects of taking Aromatase Inhibitors.  Aromatase inhibitor musculoskeletal symptoms have a negative effect on a woman's physical function and quality of life.

Auricular point acupressure uses stimulation applied to points on the ear without using needles. This study will look at and test auricular (ear) point acupressure to manage aromatase-inhibitor-caused joint pain and muscle stiffness in breast cancer survivors.

IMProving Executive function Study

Dr. C. Neill Epperson and her research team at the Penn Center for Women's Behavioral Wellness are studying the effects of a stimulant medication called Vyvanse® on memory and attention in women who had surgery to remove their ovaries to lower their risk for ovarian cancer (risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy or RRSO). NOTE: The study offers travel reimbursements and hotel accommodations for those eligible to participate.

Talking to Employers and Medical Staff About Breast Cancer Treatment and Your Job (TEAMWork Study)

The goal of this study is to improve a tool that helps cancer patients navigate work-related issues. Researchers are testing an early version of a mobile app designed to help breast cancer patients keep their jobs. The app – called TEAMWork (Talking to Employers And Medical staff about Work) – provides advice for patients who need to talk to their employers about treatment or their medical team about work. Researchers want patient feedback on what aspects of the app work well and what can be better.

Energetics and Lifestyle in Inherited Syndromes (ELLIE’s Study)

ELLIE’s Project is designed to look at factors that may affect cancer risk in people with inherited mutations linked to cancer. The study will look at weight, Body Mass Index, metabolism, dietary habits and activity level over the course of people’s life-time.

ELLIE’s Project aims to gain a better understanding of the baseline lifestyle factors related to nutrition and physical activity in people with a hereditary cancer gene mutation.

Mindfulness Meditation or Survivorship Education in Improving Behavioral Symptoms in Younger Stage 0-III Breast Cancer Survivors (Pathways to Wellness) (PTW)

The Pathways to Wellness study focuses on wellness after breast cancer. Researchers are looking to compare two groups, a mindfulness meditation class and survivorship education class, and their impact on meeting the common needs of young survivors. 

An Online Study of Memory and Attention in High-Risk Women

An Online Study of Memory and Attention in High-Risk Women

Overview of study

Several women with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation have expressed concern that various surgery or treatment strategies might affect their memory or attention. In order to respond to their concerns, we plan to conduct a novel study to understand how various factors (including chemotherapy, hormone replacement therapy, and surgery) may influence memory and attention among high-risk women. The results will help us improve the way we manage all health aspects of women who are at high risk, especially as they age.
