Long-Term Trajectories of Accelerated Biological Aging and Functional Decline Associated with Breast Cancer and its Treatment

We combine three decades of clinical, self-reported, and physiological data from the Women’s Health Initiative to characterize long-term trajectories of physical function in breast cancer survivors and test whether they are modified by intensity of cancer treatments; test whether breast cancer and its treatments increase the rate of epigenetic aging and whether the rate of epigenetic aging continues to accelerate after treatment; and examine the relationship between the rate of epigenetic aging and functional decline and test whether it differs between breast cancer survivors and usual aging controls.
