This study aims to evaluate the long term cardiovascular risk factors associated with taking endocrine therapies in patients with oestrogen receptor positive breast cancer.

Who is it for?

You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 50-85 years (post-menopausal) and going to commence endocrine therapy treatment for breast cancer for at least 12 months.

Study details

The study will run for 12 months to observe the potential effects of endocrine treatment on cardiovascular risk factors. The study will involve three visits to determine changes in body fat distribution, and other markers of cardiovascular health. Part of the study will involve questionnaires, fasting blood tests, body, liver and bone density scans, There will be an additional blood test done between visits one and three.

The results of this study will provide clinicians with a potential means of stratifying each breast cancer woman's cardiovascular risk, enabling delivery of personalised care. This project will also provide a platform for subsequent interventional studies to investigate the clinical impact of risk factor modification.
