Predictors of CVD among Breast Cancer Survivors in an Integrated Health System

This study will comprehensively examine clinical and behavioral predictors of cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes among breast cancer survivors, and will maximize unique patient and data resources available at Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC). We will compare CVD events in the Pathways Study, a cohort of female KPNC members age ≥21 years diagnosed with invasive breast cancer (n=4,453, R01CA105274) with CVD events in a new age, race/ethnicity, history of comorbidity, and length of KPNC membership matched cohort of healthy KPNC female members (n=22,265). Results from this study will have important implications for identifying breast cancer subgroups at high risk of CVD and identifying potential targets for intervention, such as medication adherence and control of CVD risk factors.
