New Breast Cancer Study Focuses on Lymphedema

Posted By on May 13th, 2013 at 8:58 am | 78 comments.

lymphedema studyDr. Kathryn Schmitz with the University of Pennsylvania’s Abramson Cancer Center has conducted the Physical Activity and Lymphedema Trial (PAL Trial) which found that the frequency of lymphedema events was reduced in women who did weightlifting with their affected arm.

Now a new study known as the Women in Study Exercise Research Survivor Study (WISER Survivor), seeks to examine the effects of exercise and/or weight loss on lymphedema, which refers to an accumulation of fluid in the arm or torso that can result from changes to the lymph system after breast cancer treatment.  Scientists will also investigate risk factors for breast cancer and quality of life.  In this 12 month study, participants will be involved in an in-home Power Block exercise program and/or a complete diet weight loss intervention.

Researchers are looking for breast cancer survivors from Southeast Pennsylvania and neighboring counties of New Jersey who have lymphedema and might benefit from a weight loss and exercise program.  For more information about this study click here (link to study  To inquire about participation in this study you can email Dr. Schmitz’s team at
