About the Study

This randomized study will look at the effect that different amounts of exercise training has on risk factors in post-menopausal women at high risk for breast cancer. These risk factors include exercise capacity, body weight, and body composition, as well as the expression of certain genes and levels of inflammatory factors in your breast tissue. Visit the study website for more information.

Type of Study

This is a randomized, four arm study. The study period will last six months. 

What the Study Entails

Background

Prior studies have shown that high levels of exercise may reduce breast cancer risk, but what has not been known is the best intensity and amount of exercise required to be protective. Nor is it known how exercise reduces breast cancer risk. In this study, researchers want to determine the optimal amount of exercise needed to change certain factors associated with breast cancer risk.
