Description

Randomized trials demonstrate that structured endurance exercise is a safe and efficacious adjunct therapy to prevent and/or attenuate physiological as well as psychological adverse sequelae both during and following anticancer therapy in individuals diagnosed with cancer. Given the beneficial effects of exercise on symptom control, a major research goal is to investigate whether exercise may also improve prognosis following a cancer diagnosis. In this presentation, I will adopt a translational (bench-to-bedside) approach to review: (1) the emerging epidemiological evidence examining the relationship between exercise exposure and cancer-specific clinical outcomes in patients with cancer, (2) available evidence from preclinical studies investigating the biological plausibility of the effects of exercise to inhibit tumor progression, (3) emerging evidence from clinical studies examining the effects of exercise on modulation of circulating cytokines and hormones that may underpin the exercise – cancer progression relationship.

Objectives

Objectives
I will overview the risk factors common to cancer and CVD as well as the extant evidence supporting the potential efficacy of exercise therapy to modify risk of cancer-specific and CVD-specific mortality in persons with cancer. I will also evaluate evidence from clinical studies investigating the effects of structured exercise therapy to modify risk factors common to cancer and CVD.
