The primary purpose of this study is to measure the association between baseline expression of the senescence effector protein p16INK4a and myelosuppression due to chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer. Patients with Stage I-IV breast cancer will be included and myelosuppression will be assessed after the first cycle of chemotherapy via measurement of an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) measured one time between days 7-11 post cycle one. Study subjects will also be asked to complete a brief health behaviors questionnaire to gather information on other relevant variables.

Time Perspective: Prospective
||LCCC 1027: Expression Of P16INK4a As A Predictor Of Myelosuppression In Patients With Breast Cancer
Primary Outcome Measures:
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Define the Association Between p16INK4a Expression and Physical Activity, Smoking and Alcohol Consumption in Women with Breast Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
To explore the associations between p16INK4a expression at baseline and amount of vigorous physical activity, smoking habits, and weekly alcohol consumption.
- Explore the Associations between p16INK4a Expression at Baseline and Other Chemotherapy-Related Toxicities including Nausea and Vomiting, Neuropathy, Fatigue and Other Grade 3 and 4 Toxicities [ Time Frame: 24 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
To explore the associations between p16INK4a expression at baseline and other chemotherapy-related toxicities, including the maximum toxicity experienced during that course of chemotherapy.
- Explore Associations between p16INK4a Expression at Baseline, Chemotherapy Regimen, and its Effect on Patient Function [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
To explore the associations between p16INK4a expression at baseline and type of chemotherapy received, co-morbidities, concomitant medications, and tumor characteristics.
