REaCT-Hot Flashes survey

REaCT-Hot Flashes survey

Patient survey for patients with early stage breast cancer, that have experienced hot flashes.

Principal Investigator(s): Dr. Sharon McGee

ClinicalTrials.gov: Not applicable
REaCT-Hot Flashes is a study investigating treatment-related, vasomotor symptoms, in patients with early-stage breast cancer. These symptoms include hot flashes, and sweats, and can occur due to the impacts of chemotherapy, and/or endocrine therapy, on estrogen levels in the body. These symptoms can negatively impact patient quality of life and impair treatment compliance. The goal of this study is to increase our understanding of vasomotor symptoms to help design randomized clinical trials to improve their management.
