Exercise‐induced attenuation of treatment side‐effects in patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer beginning androgen‐deprivation therapy: a randomised controlled trial
A key takeaway from this study was that a 3-month combined aerobic and resistance training program prevented adverse cardiorespiratory and fatigue changes in men initiating ADT for prostate cancer. However, once they transitioned to exercise self-management most of the benefits were lost although they did experience better quality of life and cardiovascular risk profile compared to the group that did not receive any exercise.
These findings add to the knowledge to inform the design of exercise medicine prescriptions however this also emphasises the importance of maintaining patients in a supervised program as long as possible.
