PEPSIN is a feasibility study to explore the impact of personalised supportive interventions (a specialised make-up/skincare or exercise programme) on mood, stress and immune response in women with early stage breast cancer. The results will provide an initial proof-of-principle and inform the development of a large scale, comprehensive longitudinal study.
