This pilot clinical trial studies anastrozole in treating aromatase inhibitor musculoskeletal symptoms in female patients with stage I-III breast cancer. Anastrozole may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
I. To validate previously identified associations between 10 specific single nucleotide polymorphisms (single nucleotide polymorphisms [SNPs]) and discontinuation of treatment with aromatase inhibitors (AIs) due to the development of musculoskeletal symptoms (MSS) among women with breast cancer.
I. To determine whether other SNPs in cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYP), glucuronosyltransferases (UGT), Vitamin D, serotonin and other receptors are associated with discontinuation of treatment due to the development of severe aromatase inhibitor-associated musculoskeletal symptoms (AIMSS).
II. To determine whether other SNPs in CYP, UGT, Vitamin D, serotonin and other receptors are associated with the development of other potential complications of AI therapy.
III. To develop a gene signature that can identify patients at risk for developing severe anastrozole-related AIMSS and other potential complications of AI therapy.
IV. To determine the epidemiology and predictors of severe AIMSS and of AI discontinuation.
V. To describe patient reported outcomes for minority patients with breast cancer treated with AIs.
VI. To assess the utility of the Patient Reported Outcomes Management Information System (PROMIS) system to collect patient reported outcomes in a cooperative group study, and validate the PROMIS Physical Function 20a form in patients with AIMSS.
VII. To develop a model that incorporates patient ratings of treatment burden, fear of recurrence and adherence behaviors to describe patient decisions to continue or discontinue anastrozole.
VIII. To collect serum samples for future testing for biomarkers of AIMSS.
Patients receive anastrozole orally (PO) once daily (QD) for 12 months.
After the completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 12 months.

This pilot clinical trial studies how well endocrine therapy works in treating patients with HER2 negative, low risk breast cancer. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. En...
Anastrozole reduces breast cancer risk in women at high risk, but implementing preventive therapy in clinical practice is difficult. Here, we evaluate adherence to anastrozole in the International Bre...
There is currently no proposed stroke biomarker with consistent application in clinical practice. A number of studies have examined cell-free DNA (cfDNA), which circulates in biological fluids during ...
Pharmacogenomics may improve health outcomes in two ways: by more precise and therefore more effective prescribing, tailored to genotype, and by increasing perceived effectiveness of treatments and so...
To investigate whether an authorship effect is found that leads to better performance in studies conducted by the original developers of the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) (allegiant studies).
Because of the high malignant degree of pancreatic cancer (PC), the early diagnosis of PC is of great concern. Macrophage inhibitory cytokine-1 (MIC-1) was reported to be a potential diagnostic biomar...
Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.
Self report questionnaire which yields 16 scores on personality traits, such as reserved vs. outgoing, humble vs. assertive, etc.
The detection of genetic variability (e.g., PHARMACOGENOMIC VARIANTS) relevant to PHARMACOGENETICS and PRECISION MEDICINE. The purpose of such genetic testing is to help determine the most effective treatment options and their optimum dosages with least potential risks for DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS.
The application of discoveries generated by laboratory research and preclinical studies to the development of clinical trials and studies in humans. A second area of translational research concerns enhancing the adoption of best practices
A quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc., with application chiefly in the areas of research and medicine.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
