Abstract:

Very little is known about the incidence, onset, time course, and symptomatology of premature menopause induced by breast cancer therapy. No prospective study has been reported. Accrual in the present study was begun on January 1, 1998 but has not reached target numbers, and therefore, accrual has continued. In order to continue following the current cohort, an application has been submitted for additional funding. Preliminary analyses of the 559 current participants have been done.
