Develop and Validate Novel Body Composition Scores to Predict Survival in Breast Cancer Patients

Researchers have typically investigated how each body compartment may be individually associated with poor survival and other cancer outcomes. This ignores synergistic effects of adipose tissue and muscle on inflammation, oxidative stress, insulin resistance, and chemotherapy dosing, which collectively influence cancer prognosis. We aim to develop and validate novel composite scores of body compositions to predict breast cancer survival.
