An Exploratory Study of Patterns of Fatigue During Chemotherapy

What is the purpose of this trial?

The specific aims of the study in a sample of women with breast cancer (n=90) are: 1. Describe daily variation in morning and evening fatigue severity prior to initiation of and during the first two CTX cycles; 2. Examine differential expression of genes involved in the inflammasome pathways with variations in morning and evening fatigue severity; 3. Analyze phenotypic characteristics association with variations in morning and evening fatigue severity.
