Weight Loss Interventions in Treating Overweight and Obese Women with a Higher Risk for Breast Cancer Recurrence

Breast

This randomized phase III compares weight loss interventions in treating overweight and obese women with a higher risk for breast cancer that comes back (recurrence). Many studies have shown that women who are overweight or obese when diagnosed with breast cancer appear to have a higher risk of cancer recurrence. This study aims to test whether overweight or obese women who take part in a weight loss program after being diagnosed with breast cancer have a lower rate of cancer recurrence as compared to women who do not take part in the program.

Testing MK-3475 (Pembrolizumab) as Adjuvant Therapy for Triple Receptor-Negative Breast Cancer

Breast

This randomized phase III trial studies how well pembrolizumab works in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Ketogenic Diet with Letrozole in Treating Patients with Estrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer

Breast

This early phase I trial studies how well ketogenic diet with letrozole works in treating patients with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. Estrogen receptor positive breast cancer has special proteins on it, called estrogen receptors, that allow it to grow when exposed to estrogen. A ketogenic diet (low calorie, low carbohydrate) may help normalize abnormally high insulin levels that in turn may slow the growth of cancer cells. Letrozole may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.The purpose of this study is to learn if the combination of a 2 week ketogenic diet in combination with letrozole can help slow the growth of tumors.
