Chicago Breast Health Project, Phase II


OBJECTIVES:

- Correlate physical activity, diet, and obesity, as measured by body mass index and
waist circumference, with percent breast density and the absolute estimate of total
dense breast area in healthy Hispanic women undergoing screening mammography.

- Correlate fasting serum insulin growth factor (IGF)-1 and the molar ratio of IGF-1 to
IGF binding protein-3 with breast density in participants undergoing screening
mammography.

- Correlate insulin concentration and insulin resistance with breast density in
participants undergoing screening mammography.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Participants undergo blood collection and physical examination. Participants also complete
breast cancer risk factor, food frequency, and physical activity questionnaires and receive
breast health and physical activity education. Participants then undergo a digital screening
mammogram. Participants are notified of mammogram results.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 114 participants will be accrued for this study.
