INTRODUCTION: Evidence on the association between diabetes and risk of bladder cancer has been controversial. In addition, findings on the associations between duration of diabetes, diabetes treatment, and risk of bladder cancer have been inconsistent. METHODS: A total of 148,208 participants in Women's Health Initiative study were included. Information on diabetes status, diabetes duration, and treatment was collected both at baseline and during follow-up. Information on potential confounders i...

Background: In postmenopausal women, use of hormone therapy is associated with a lower incidence of diabetes (DM). The association of adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) with DM has not been well studied among women treated for early stage breast cancer. The objective of this study was to examine the association of AET with risk of developing DM among postmenopausal women who developed breast cancer. Methods: 5,013 postmenopausal women from the Women’s Health Initiative diagnosed with non-metastati...

INTRODUCTION: Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) is a subtype of breast cancer associated with poor clinical outcome. Patients diagnosed with TNBC may experience many treatment-associated changes, including weight gain, reduced physical activity levels, and worsening metabolic profiles. We sought to identify the association between baseline metabolic syndrome (MetS) components with survival outcomes in WHI participants diagnosed with TNBC. METHODS: The WHI comprises 161,308 post-menopausal wom...

BACKGROUND: Most studies demonstrating an association between excess adiposity and postmenopausal breast cancer have used anthropometric measures, particularly body mass index (BMI). However, more direct body fat measures may more accurately determine the relationship between body fat distribution and breast cancer risk. METHODS: Cox proportional hazards regression models were created to examine the associations of dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) body fat measures (at baseline and during ...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: While breast cancer and associated therapies can influence physical function (PF), findings for breast cancer's effects on PF among postmenopausal women are not consistent. This research evaluates the effect of breast cancer on change in PF. DESIGN: Longitudinal cohort study analyzed using difference-in-differences (DID) method to compare the changes in PF over time between women with and without breast cancer, by invasive status, stage, and age. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: ...

Abstract Purpose Inspired by the American Society of Clinical Oncology's recommendations to strengthen the evidence base for older adults with cancer, the purpose of this systematic review is to identify the reporting of treatment efficacy and adverse events specific to older adults with cancer in Phase III chemo-therapeutic clinical trials. This review also investigates the frequency with which these data points were reported in the literature to identify gaps in reporting and opportunities to ...

Background: Obesity-related cancers disproportionately affect the Black community. We assessed the relationship between diet quality, physical activity and their combined effect on obesity-related cancer risk and mortality in Black women enrolled in the Women9s Health Initiative (WHI). Methods: Data from postmenopausal (50-79 years), Black women enrolled in WHI clinical trials or observational studies were analyzed. Exposure variables included baseline physical activity (MET-hours/week of Modera...
