Effects of Chemotherapy on Cognitive Function in Breast Cancer Patients and Non-Cancer
Control Participants With an Optional Sub-Study: Research Brain MRI
What are the effects of chemotherapy on cognitive function in breast cancer patients
compared to the general population of age-matched, healthy control participants?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester
Study is enrolling newly diagnosed breast cancer patients about to start chemotherapy
age-matched control participants. The investigator is trying to better understand
prevalence of cognitive difficulties in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy compared
the general population as well as what biological mechanisms may play a role in the
development of these difficulties. Patients will be asked to complete six assessments
the course of approximately 5 months. Assessments 1,3, 4.5 and 5 include computerized
paper and pencil cognitive testing as well as blood draws. Assessments 2 and 4 only
the collection of a blood sample. An optional sub study is offered after Assessment
involves a research brain MRI at Assessment 4.5 and cognitive testing and another
brain MRI at Assessment 6.
