Assess Inflammatory Potential of Diet Among Breast Cancer Patients: Novel Index and Short-Form Questionnaire

Inflammation impacts cancer progression via stimulating tumor proliferation, migration, and angiogenesis. As a key regulator of inflammation, post-diagnosis diet strongly influences risk of breast cancer recurrence and mortality. We propose to develop an inflammatory dietary index for breast cancer patients that predicts canonical plasma inflammatory biomarkers. We will also design a brief inflammatory dietary questionnaire as a feasible dietary screener for clinical use.
