In collaboration with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), this timelyvolumeprovides a comprehensive review onallareas ofbreast cancer survivorship research, highlighting research that is underway or in development. The range of topics covered include the biology and management of fatigue and cognitive dysfunction on breast cancer survivorship, the biology and management of Neuropathy and Arthralgias, the ongoing research on the biology of diet and lifestyle interventions in survivors, and more. With the tremendous growth in the number of breast cancer survivors, researchers have moved beyond describing the outcomes of breast cancer treatments and are focusing their research on understanding the mechanisms underlying the development of the late effects of breast cancer treatment, as well as the development and evaluation of interventions to mitigate some of the persistent symptoms-topics which are also explored in this volume. In addition, current research on how to improve survivorship and reduce recurrence of breast cancer through behavioral and lifestyle modifications is also discussed.

"This book was written to disseminate the findings of the investigative work as well as the programs of the BRCF to all those concerned - doctors involved in caring for breast cancer patients, their families and friends, and anyone who wants to learn more about this deadly disease. … All in all, this is a highly informative book."
