Weight Variation During Chemotherapy in Breast Cancer Patients

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Centre Jean Perrin
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01506466
First received: January 3, 2012
Last updated: July 23, 2015
Last verified: July 2015
  Purpose

Weight variation has been reported as a side effect of chemotherapy treatment in early breast cancer patients. To date, there is growing evidence for an increased risk of relapse and death in these patients who gain or lose weight. However, causes of weight variation during chemotherapy and mechanisms involved in the poor prognosis have been little studied.

Thus, the investigators are conducting a prospective study to characterize weight variation in terms of body composition and to identify the mechanisms involved.


Condition Intervention

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in body composition [ Time Frame: within 2 weeks before chemotherapy; 1month after the last chemotherapy; and 6 months later. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in energy balance [ Time Frame: within 2 weeks before chemotherapy; 1month after the last chemotherapy; and 6 months later. ]

  • Change from baseline in muscle strength [ Time Frame: within 2 weeks before chemotherapy; 1month after the last chemotherapy; and 6 months later. ]
  • Change from baseline in biological factors (hormonal, inflammatory, lipid, growth factors) [ Time Frame: within 2 weeks before chemotherapy; 1month after the last chemotherapy; and 6 months later. ]
