Webinars

Past webinars from our Research Webinar Series have featured researchers who collaborated with the Love Research Army for the recruitment of their studies and had results to share. These webinars allowed researchers to present and discuss results and conclusions with both study participants and other interested Love Research Army members. Many of you have participated in these webinars and we are thrilled to be able to close the loop on study participation and share the results of your efforts! Building upon the success of our research results webinars, we are expanding our Research Webinar Series by featuring studies currently recruiting Love Research Army members. During these webinars researchers will explain the background and significance of their studies in more detail and answer your questions.

You may notice that some closed studies and webinars mention the Army of Women, or AOW. In 2020, after 10 years as the Army of Women, we changed our name to Love Research Army to better reflect our longstanding commitment to fostering inclusive research.

Researchers at the University of San Francisco have found that a protein produced by human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) called cmvIL-10 promotes the growth and spread of breast cancer cells, increasing the likelihood of metastasis. The cmvIL-10 protein is frequently found at higher than normal levels in the blood of cancer patients.

This study will allow researchers to evaluate cmIL-10 blood levels in breast cancer patients and compare cmIL-10 levels in healthy women and women diagnosed with breast cancer within the last 5 years. If the study finds that some breast cancer patients have higher levels of cmIL-10, it's possible that the test might be useful for determining whether some patients might benefit from anti-viral drug treatments. If levels are higher in patients with more advanced breast cancer, then it's possible that screening for cmIL-10 could help doctors monitor whether metastases are more likely to develop or whether a woman's cancer is responding to treatment. This study was launched to the Army of Women on September 15th, 2015 and the research team is still looking for people to participate.

Past webinars from our Research Webinar Series have featured researchers who collaborated with the Army of Women® for the recruitment of their studies and had results to share. These webinars allowed researchers to present and discuss results and conclusions with both study participants and other interested Army of Women members. Many of you have participated in these webinars and we are thrilled to be able to close the loop on study participation and share the results of your efforts!

Interested in using the Army of Women to recruit for your breast research study but not sure how to get started? Considering an upcoming RFP but have never heard of the Army of Women? The Army of Women has more than 371,000 women and men (~70% without a history of breast cancer) from throughout the country, eager to hear about YOUR study.
