Clinical Trial Summary

Obesity among breast cancer survivors is known to be associated with recurrence and other co-morbidities. However, there have been no studies on weight reduction program combining diet and anti-obesity drug for obese breast cancer survivors. The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to examine the effects of Mediterranean Diet and naltrexone/bupropion treatment on inflammation and metabolic risk factors in overweight or obese breast cancer patients after breast cancer treatment.
