A Feasibility Study for Women Receiving Anthracycline Chemotherapy With or Without Radiation for HER2-neu Positive Invasive Ductal Carcinoma

Official Title

A Feasibility Study for Women Receiving Adjuvant or Neo-adjuvant Anthracycline Chemotherapy With or Without Radiation for HER2-neu Positive Invasive Ductal Carcinoma

Summary:

The purpose of this project is to assess the feasibility of collecting plasma samples for cardiac biomarker assessment, and to identify if there is an associations between the biomarkers, echocardiographic features and the cardiac PET scan results (in patients receiving radiation therapy). This is the first step in a research program that has an overall goal of being able to predict early-treatment induced cardiotoxicity in patients with breast cancer.
