Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles


Bette Caan, DrPH, is a senior research scientist and a nutritional epidemiologist at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. She has been at the Division of Research since 1983. Dr. Caan holds a master’s degree in nutrition from Columbia University, a master’s degree in epidemiology from the University of California, Berkeley, and a doctorate in public health nutrition from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Caan directs a research program in the examination of modifiable lifestyle risk factors for the prevention and progression of cancer, with a focus on energy balance risk factors. She has expertise in dietary measurement and assessment and the conduct of dietary intervention trials.
 
Dr. Caan has authored or co-authored 290 publications while a researcher at DOR. Her research publications cover a wide range of topics, primarily in nutrition and body size, cancer epidemiology, and women’s health.  Dr. Caan is currently the Principal Investigator of several federally funded research projects including the WHI Cancer Survivor Cohort; the LACE study, a prospective cohort of breast cancer to study effects of modifiable lifestyle factors on recurrence and survival; and a study on the role of body composition in relation to colorectal cancer survival.

Current Position(s):

  • Research Scientist III, Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente Northern California
  • Director, Early Stage Investigator Training Program

Section Affiliations:

Primary Research Interests:

  • Dietary risk and anthropometric risk factors for cancer survival
  • Dietary intervention trials
  • Dietary and body composition measurement and assessment
  • Women’s health

    Resistance Training to Reduce Chemotoxicity in Colon Cancer

    The goal of this study is to test a randomized intervention of up to six months of home-based resistance training and protein supplementation versus a waitlist control. The intervention will begin during the first month of chemotherapy and continue through completion of treatment. The study will examine differences in chemotherapy outcomes, including reductions in dosing, treatment delays, and early discontinuation of treatment; differences in total combined number of moderate and severe grade 3 and 4 toxicities; and pre and post intervention differences in the pharmacokinetics of FOLFOX (colon cancer chemotherapy regimen), changes in body composition, functional status, and strength. If improving muscle mass through resistance training leads to a reduced risk of chemotoxicities, CT scans routinely performed for clinical diagnosis could be used to identify high-risk patients who will benefit from tailored exercise guidelines.

    Impact of Bariatric Surgery on Cancer Incidence in Severely Obese Adults

    This study will examine effects of bariatric surgery on cancer incidence in both men and women who received bariatric surgery between 2005 and 2011 across 4 HCSRN sites. Cases will be followed through 2015 and incidence rates (in particular breast and colorectal) will be compared to a matched set of controls.

    WHI Cancer Survivor Cohort

    The primary goal of this research project is to create an infrastructure within WHI to build a resource for the study of molecular epidemiology and cancer survivorship. Cancer survivors will be followed annually with surveys; tumor tissue will be acquired; and methodological studies will be established to develop electronic linkages with HMO and Medicare data for treatment and outcomes.

    MsFLASH: Living a Healthy Menopause

    The aims of this study are: 1) Conduct a 4-arm, double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial among postmenopausal women with vaginitis symptoms (moderate/severe vaginal dryness, burning, itching, pain or dyspareunia in the absence of infection) to compare the efficacy of: (a) the probiotic Lactin V, (b) ultra-low dose vaginal estrogen, (Vagifem 10 mcg), and (c) the combination of Lactin V + Vagifem to (d) matching placebos for relief of vaginitis symptoms after 8 weeks of treatment using the most bothersome symptom score as the primary trial outcome. 2) Using the cases recruited for the trial and a group of matched controls (women without symptoms of postmenopausal vaginitis), conduct a case-control study to determine whether patterns of vaginal bacterial colonization, such as pro-inflammatory anaerobic species, differ among women with and without symptoms of postmenopausal vaginitis.

    Exploring the Role of Sarcopenia in Obesity and Breast Cancer Survival

    The aim of this study is to gain a better understanding of the role of sarcopenia and body composition in the relationship between obesity and risk of breast cancer progression. We propose to use existing CT scans performed as a part of regular clinical care in this novel application to examine: 1) levels of fat and muscle mass among newly diagnosed breast cancer patients to determine prevalence of sarcopenia among underweight, normal weight, overweight, mildly obese and morbidly obese breast cancer survivors; 2) relationships between categories of fat mass and lean muscle mass at diagnosis (including sarcopenic obesity) and breast tumor characteristics predictive of risk of recurrence and death including disease stage, subtype (ER, PR, and Her2 Neu status), and proliferation markers, 3) relationships between body composition and chemotoxicity; and 4) associations between categories of fat mass and muscle mass and breast cancer-specific and overall mortality.
