Weight loss for overweight and obese men preparing for prostatectomy

2020-08-12T02:05:57+00:00

Efficacy of a weight loss program prior to robot assisted radical prostatectomy in overweight and obese men with prostate cancer Background Obesity in prostate cancer patients is associated with poor prostate-cancer specific outcomes. Exercise and nutrition can reduce fat mass; however, few studies have explored this as a combined pre-surgical intervention in clinical practice. [...]

Exercise to improve radiotherapy response

2020-07-07T02:45:12+00:00

Exercise modulation of tumour perfusion and hypoxia to improve radiotherapy response in prostate cancer Background An increasing number of studies indicate that exercise plays an important role in the overall care of prostate cancer (PCa) patients before, during and after treatment. Historically, research has focused on exercise as a modulator of physical function, psychosocial [...]

Exercise during adjuvant chemo for breast cancer

2020-07-01T00:41:00+00:00

Physical deterioration and adaptive recovery in physically inactive breast cancer patients during adjuvant chemotherapy: a randomised controlled trial This clinical trial was conducted in breast cancer patients undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy. This was a head to head comparison of hospital based moderate - high intensity supervised exercise program versus instructed home-based pedometer intervention. Cardiorespiratory fitness [...]

If you build it, will they come? Evaluation of a co‐located exercise clinic and cancer treatment centre using the RE‐AIM framework Around 10 years ago we started working with GenesisCare to develop exercise medicine services to support their cancer care. Our team established an exercise clinic within the new GenesisCare centre in Joondalup, Western [...]

Exercise attenuates ADT side-effects

2020-05-26T10:01:44+00:00

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 [...]

Exercise and Artery Health in Older Adults

2020-05-20T07:30:54+00:00

Which Exercise Mode Improve Artery Health in Older Adults A key takeaway from this study was that HIIT and moderate-intensity continuous training, but not whole-body resistance training, increased the ability of arteries to relax in response to an increase in blood flow. However, only HIIT enhanced resting blood flow in the brachial artery. Furthermore, [...]

Heavy Resistance Training in Breast Cancer Patients

2020-05-19T04:14:42+00:00

Heavy Resistance Training in Breast Cancer Patients Undergoing Adjuvant Therapy In this randomised control trial patients completed heavy resistance training (4 sets leg press x 4 repetitions) at around 90% of their 1RM. This resulted in 20% increase in strength as well as 9-12% improvement in functional performance. The control group actually declined in [...]

Breast cancer and treatment impacts on muscle strength

2020-05-08T07:06:46+00:00

Breast cancer and treatment impacts on muscle strength All patients with breast cancer or post treatment should perform at least two resistance training sessions per week to maintain muscle mass, strength and physical function. As expected these authors report that women who have undergone breast cancer treatment have lower muscle strength compared to matched [...]
