|The Women In Steady Exercise Research (WISER) Survivor Trial
|The Women In Steady Exercise Research (WISER) Survivor Trial & Cost of Illness and Cost Effectiveness of Alternative Management Strategies
WISER Survivor is a one year weight loss and exercise study for sedentary breast cancer survivors who are overweight or obese with breast cancer related lymphedema. There will be four groups in this trial: exercise only, weight loss only, exercise and weight-loss combined, and a control group. The purpose of this study is to test the effects of these interventions on lymphedema outcomes, breast cancer recurrence and quality of life.
The cost analysis sub-study - will assess the cost-effectiveness of conducting the WISER Survivor interventions and also model the impact of the WISER Survivor interventions over an extended time frame.
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
- Behavioral: Exercise Intervention
The Exercise Intervention combines the twice-weekly weight-lifting intervention from PAL with the 180 minutes of weekly aerobic exercise from the recently completed WISER trial and the ongoing WISER Sister Trial. Women will be trained by certified fitness professionals in both the PAL weight-lifting intervention and in safely increasing their aerobic exercise activity over 6 weekly sessions, and then monitored through phone contact, and monthly in-person sessions.
- Behavioral: Weight Loss Intervention
The Weight Loss Intervention begins with a 24 week intensive phase that includes weekly meetings and provision of all meals and snacks from a commercial manufacturer (NutriSystem, Inc., Fort Washington, PA). Daily caloric intake will be strictly controlled during this first 24 weeks at 1200-1500 calories per day.
- No Intervention: Lymphedema Care Only
- Experimental: Exercise only
The Exercise Intervention combines 60-90 minute twice-weekly supervised weight-lifting sessions with 180 minutes of weekly aerobic exercise. Women will be trained by certified fitness professionals in both the weight-lifting intervention and in safely increasing their aerobic exercise activity over 6 weekly sessions, and then monitored through phone contact, and monthly in-person sessions. All exercise participants will be provided with 'Power Blocks' which are adjustable dumbbells with which they can increase resistance in 1-2 pound increments from 1-21 pounds. All weight training will be done in their homes except for the first 6 weekly session and monthly check-in sessions.
Intervention: Behavioral: Exercise Intervention
- Experimental: Weight loss only
The Weight Loss Intervention begins with a 24 week intensive phase that includes weekly meetings and provision of all meals and snacks from a commercial manufacturer (NutriSystem®, Inc., Fort Washington, PA). Daily caloric intake will be strictly controlled during this first 24 weeks at 1200-1500 calories per day. Participants will be guided to stay at the same number of calories per day until reaching goal weight, followed by a gradual increase in caloric intake (of approximately 500 calories/d) to maintain their weight throughout the remainder of the intervention. The treatment groups will be led by registered dietitians and will receive ongoing supervision via telephone and email contact.
Intervention: Behavioral: Weight Loss Intervention
- Experimental: Exercise and Weight loss combined
Participants in this group will receive a combination of the supervised twice-weekly weight training sessions and the weight loss program.
