About this study
The purpose of this study is to determine if Brain Natriuretic Peptide (NT-pro-BNP) values increase over time in breast cancer survivors and correlate with cardiac dysfunction. This study will define the average NT-pro-B-natriuretic peptide values in female breast cancer patients 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years out from anthracycline-based chemotherapy.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.
