Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles


Dr. Bette Caan 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 body composition and energy balance risk factors. Dr. Caan has expertise in the assessment of diet and body composition and the conduct of dietary intervention trials. She has authored or co-authored over 450 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 two large observational studies examining effects of body composition on breast and colorectal cancer outcomes; an intervention trial studying if strength training can reduce side effects of chemotherapy; and the LILAC Women's Health Initiative (WHI) Cancer Survivor Cohort, a cohort of 20,000 older women diagnosed with cancer during the WHI follow-up period currently being followed for recurrence and survival and survivorship outcomes. Dr. Caan has recently published several papers on the obesity paradox in cancer, advocating that body mass index (BMI) misclassifies patients with regard to adiposity; she is also in part responsible for identifying the obesity paradox. However, equally important in explaining the obesity paradox is that low muscle or sarcopenia is an important, underappreciated risk factor for poor survival, and that it is highly prevalent in normal-weight cancer patients.

    Characterizing the Risk of Chemotherapy Side Effects Based on Epigenetic Age and Modification by Resistance Training Intervention

    This study is investigating whether an individual's epigenetic age — a molecular marker of biological age — at the start of chemotherapy is associated with chemotoxicity in patients receiving treatment for colon cancer and whether resistance training during chemotherapy attenuates that association. We will also investigate if chemotherapy changes these patients' epigenetic age and whether resistance training attenuates those changes.

    Ms. LILAC: Muscle Mass in the Life and Longevity After Cancer (LILAC) Study

    In WHI, we use the LILAC study and the Long Life Study 2 to collect D-3 creatine to measure muscle mass in older women who are cancer survivors and a matched control group of older women who have not had cancer. Specifically, we will develop age-standardized percentile curves to characterize the distribution of D-3 muscle mass in the cancer survivor and control groups; examine whether the relationship between muscle mass, physical function, and functional decline differs in cancer survivors and controls by assessing the cross-sectional relationship between muscle mass and physical function; the longitudinal relationship between muscle mass and functional decline; and use machine learning methods to create multivariate risk-prediction algorithms to detect low muscle mass in the cancer survivor and control groups.

    CANcer Cachexia Action Network/CANCAN

    This study will include 1500 patients with advanced lung, pancreatic, or colorectal cancer at high risk of cachexia for detailed measurement via biospecimen collection, remote monitoring, questionnaire, and medical record review. The aims are to: identify distinct cachexia subtypes with data-driven clustering; operationalize cachexia subtype definitions, understand their severity, and examine how each subtype is associated with time to death, functional decline, and/or treatment tolerance.; inform treatment decisions for patients likely to progress to cachexia; and validate mechanistic hypotheses and biomarkers developed in related CanCan Projects.

    Characterizing Colon Cancer Chemotoxicity Risk based on Epigenetic Age and Modification by Resistance Training Intervention

    This study will investigate whether epigenetic aging — a molecular marker of biological age — at the start of chemotherapy is associated with chemotoxicity in patients receiving treatment for colon cancer. We will also look at whether chemotherapy treatment is associated with changes in epigenetic age, and the impact that resistance training during chemotherapy treatment has on these associations.

    Cancer and Body Composition Webinar Series

    This monthly webinar series, attended by approximately 200 people from diverse disciplines, is ongoing and focuses on topics relevant to body composition and cancer. The Division of Research will host 10 webinar speakers who are prominent in the field; archive recordings; and write a paper summarizing advances in the field.

    Body Composition and the Obesity Paradox in Clear-Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Aim 1: Determine associations among body mass index (BMI), body composition variables, and tumor subtype. The amount and quality of muscle, visceral adipose tissue, and subcutaneous adipose tissue will be derived from existing pre-surgical CT scans; and ccA/ccB subtypes will be derived from archived tumor specimens using NanoString. Aim 2. Identify body composition variables independently associated with ccRCC prognosis after accounting for tumor subtype. Multivariable models adjusting for demographics, BMI, comorbidities, and known prognostic factors will estimate how body composition variables are associated with disease progression, cancer-specific, and overall survival and whether these associations are modified or mediated by tumor subtype. Aim 3. Identify novel pathways through which body composition may affect prognosis.

    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.

    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.
