The proposed study compares the outcomes of a physical activity intervention begun at diagnosis, continuing through active cancer treatment and into six months of survivorship compared to the outcomes of a control group receiving limited information on activity.
Patients (with stage 0 to stage III breast cancer)receiving chemotherapy, radiation or both chemotherapy and radiation will be included in the study.Randomization will be stratified by disease stage at diagnosis, treatment modalities planned, and hormonal status. Each patient will have a weekly goal of 2000 calories burned and 18 MET-hours of exercise which can be achieved in 4 to 7 hours of physical activity per week. Resistance training, using weight machines and aerobic training using treadmills, elliptical trainers and stationary bicycles, will be utilized in the intervention group. The control group will receive basic information on physical activity but not be instructed. Any physical activity in this group will be self-reported. Change in C-reactive protein will be the primary endpoint. Changes in other laboratory values, DEXA measurements, and quality of life measurements will be secondary endpoints.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

The process of TOOTH formation. It is divided into several stages including: the dental lamina stage, the bud stage, the cap stage, and the bell stage. Odontogenesis includes the production of tooth enamel (AMELOGENESIS), dentin (DENTINOGENESIS), and dental cementum (CEMENTOGENESIS).

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. Through basic and clinical biomedical research and training, it conducts and supports research with the objective of cancer prevention, early stage identification and elimination. This Institute was established in 1937.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
