Exercise in Breast Cancer Survivors
Exercise in Breast Cancer Survivors: Analysis of Angiogenic Profile
The investigators hypothesize that exercise in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors will result in an increase in the plasma concentrations of angiostatic factors and a decrease in the plasma concentrations of angiogenic factors. Exercise is expected to result in a circulating angiostatic phenotype that inhibits adipose tissue mass, growth of breast cancer tumor, growth of microscopic residual disease after breast cancer resection, decreases rates of local-regional recurrence, decreases rates of distant recurrence, and increases survival.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
  • Breast Cancer
  • Obesity
Behavioral: Exercise
The participant will exercise for 16 weeks under supervision. The exercise regimen is increased slowly over 16 weeks.
  • Experimental: Exercise Group
    The intervention is a structured walking program which will be performed partly in the Pavilion Physical Therapy clinic and partly at home. The participant will be instructed in how hard to exercise, how long to exercise, and how many times in a week to exercise. You will also be instructed in how to exercise safely.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Exercise
  • No Intervention: No Exercise
    These participants will receive standard of care follow up.
