The COBRA study investigates changes in body composition, which is the amount of adipose and muscular tissue, of women with breast cancer who are treated with or undergoing chemotherapy.
We study how women experience possible changes in diet, physical activity and quality of life during treatment and which suggestions they have in order to prevent those changes. Women who have not been diagnosed with breast cancer are also included in this study in order to determine which body changes are related with chemotherapy and which changes occur natural over time in women of the same age group.
