-Invitation for sites participating in the Prevent Study (WFU, SCCC-Forsyth, Asheville, Charlotte, Upstate, Greenville, University of Miami and Wichita CCOPs) and any other interested parties:
On Saturday, October 26 at 7 a.m. you are invited to attend an investigator’s meeting for the “Preventing Anthracycline Cardiotoxicity with Statins” or PREVENT study. This study will look at the effect of statins on the cardiovascular health of women receiving anthracycline chemotherapy for Stage I-III breast cancer, and is set to begin recruiting this fall.
During this session, I will be providing an overview of the study design, followed by a review of the MRI protocol. This session will be essential for principal investigators, on-site project managers, physicians involved in MRI, and MRI technicians from the participating CCOP sites. Any CCOP staff are also welcome to attend and engage in this discussion and question and answer session.
I look forward to meeting with all of you as we move closer to the opening of this protocol. See you in October.
