Are you Pregnant or a Nursing Mother? Consider being a part f a Breast Cancer Research.
This study will examine changes that occur in the breast tissue, blood and urine of a woman after she has given birth to a child. The study will examine how a woman’s breast and her cells change after pregnancy and breast feeding and how her immune system interacts with these changes. The immune system is a complex network of cells that identify our tissues as “self” or “foreign” as well as normal cells or cancer cells. We hope to discover how a woman’s breast changes after pregnancy or breast feeding to see if this time point in a woman’s life could be targeted to prevent breast cancer.
You are being asked to be in this research study because you are pregnant or were recently pregnant and have not had breast cancer or another autoimmune disease.
