Olive Oil for High Risk Breast Cancer Prevention in Women
This is a pilot study evaluating the effect of hydroxytyrosol, a component of olive oil, on mammographic density in women at high risk of developing breast cancer.
- Female aged ≥18 years of age.
- Elevated risk of breast cancer as defined by at least one of the following categories and have declined tamoxifen and/or raloxifene therapy:
- Diagnosis of lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS), atypical ductal, or lobular hyperplasia.
- A known deleterious mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2, PTEN, or TP53. (Note: The participant must be a documented carrier to meet this criterion. If there is a known mutation in a hereditary breast cancer susceptibility gene in a participant's family member, the participant herself must have undergone genetic testing as per National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines to be eligible per this criterion.)
- Modified Gail/CARE model risk at 5 years ≥ 1.67%. (Note: Risk models are to be used only if there is no known previous diagnosis of resected ductal carcinoma in situ [DCIS] or LCIS and there is no known deleterious mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2, PTEN, or TP53)
- 10% or more probability of BRCA mutation by BRCAPRO or similar model
- Must have at least one breast available for imaging and biopsy. A previously irradiated breast (i.e., for resected DCIS) is not evaluable for breast imaging or biopsy. a. Allow for submission of core needle breast material for future use.
- Baseline mammogram performed within 90 days prior to study entry, done on a digital mammography machine, that are reported as normal or benign.
- Baseline mammographic density > 10% based upon the classification system (2 = 11-50%, "scattered fibroglandular densities"; 3 = 51-75%, heterogeneously dense; 4 = >75%, extremely dense). Women with a baseline mammographic density of ≤ 10% (1 = ≤10%, breasts are almost entirely fat) will not be eligible
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0-1.
- Prior anticoagulant therapy use is allowed provided therapy is discontinued at least 7 days prior to the breast biopsy in order to reduce the risk of bleeding. For participants who have taken an anticoagulation within the past 7 days, international normalized ratio must be ≤ 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal and prothrombin time and partial thromboplastin time ≤ ULN prior to the breast biopsy.
- Must agree to use effective consistent contraception. Hormone-based birth control (pills, patches, or shots) is allowed. Hormone replacement therapy is not allowed for postmenopausal participants.
- Must not participate in any other clinical trial for the treatment or prevention of cancer unless they are no longer receiving the intervention and are in the follow-up phase only. Participants must also agree not to join such a trial while participating in this study.
- Provide written informed consent.
- DCIS or previous invasive ductal carcinoma.
- Any prior malignancy except for the following: adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer and in situ cervical cancer.
- Prior tamoxifen or raloxifene use in the past 1 year.
- Pregnant or breastfeeding.
- Bilateral breast implants. Prior breast reduction surgery is allowed.
- Mammograms that are reported as suspicious.

Trial Objectives and Outline
This is a pilot study evaluating the effect of hydroxytyrosol, a component of olive oil, on mammographic density in women at high risk of developing breast cancer. Participants will take hydroxytyrosol orally once daily for 1 year. Breast density as determined by mammography and the safety/toxicity of hydroxytyrosol will be assessed.
