- Physical exercise interventions in haematological cancer patients, feasible to conduct but effectiveness to be established: a systematic literature review.A review article summarized and defined the methodological quality of primary research findings obtained in exercise interventions, aimed at improving physical function or psychological well-being in patients treated for haematological malignancies.Source: Cancer treatment reviews 2009 Apr;35(2):185-92.
- Physical activity and obesity in endometrial cancer survivors: associations with pain, fatigue, and physical functioning.This research results suggest endometrial cancer survivors' obesity and inactivity contributes to poorer quality of life. This population could benefit from quality-of-life interventions incorporating physical activity.Source: American journal of obstetrics and gynecology 2009 Mar;200(3):288.e1-8.
- Physical activity and quality of life in adult survivors of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.This article aims to examine the prevalence and correlates of physical activity in adult survivors of aggressive non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) and to explore the association between physical activity level and health-related quality of lifeSource: Journal of Clinical Oncology. 2009 Feb 20;27(6):960-6.
- Race/ethnicity, physical activity, and quality of life in breast cancer survivors.The study suggests that meeting recommended levels of physical activity is associated with better quality of life in non-Hispanic White and Black breast cancer survivors.Source: Cancer epidemiology, biomarkers & prevention. 2009 Feb;18(2):656-63.
- Randomized controlled trial of resistance or aerobic exercise in men receiving radiation therapy for prostate cancer.The article points out: in the short term, both resistance and aerobic exercise mitigated fatigue in men with prostate cancer receiving radiotherapy. Resistance exercise generated longer-term improvements and additional benefits for quality of life, strength, triglycerides, and body fat.Source: Journal of Clinical Oncology. 2009 Jan 20;27(3):344-51.
- Effects of exercise on quality of life in women living with breast cancer: a systematic review.According to this review, there was strong evidence that exercise positively influences quality of life in women living with breast cancer. Exercise can be an effective strategy to improve quality of life in women living with breast cancer. Future research is necessary to determine optimal exercise types and parameters.Source: Breast Journal. 2009 Jan-Feb;15(1):45-51. Review.
- Prospective relationships of physical activity with quality of life among colorectal cancer survivors.The study findings suggest that the positive association between physical activity and quality of life is consistent over time. Encouraging colorectal cancer survivors to be physically active may be a helpful strategy for enhancing quality of life.Source: Journal of Clinical Oncology. 2008 Sep 20;26(27):4480-7.
- Recruiting and retaining breast cancer survivors into a randomized controlled exercise trial: the Yale Exercise and Survivorship Study. Source: Cancer. 2008 Jun 1;112(11 Suppl):2593-606. Erratum in: Cancer. 2008 Oct 1;113(7):1716.
- Cancer survivors' adherence to lifestyle behavior recommendations and associations with health-related quality of life: results from the American Cancer Society's SCS-II.The article aims to examine the prevalence and clustering of physical activity (PA), fruit and vegetable consumption (5-A-Day), and smoking across six major cancer survivor groups and to identify any associations with health-related quality of life (HRQoL).Source: Journal of Clinical Oncology. 2008 May 1;26(13):2198-204.
- Physical activity, long-term symptoms, and physical health-related quality of life among breast cancer survivors: a prospective analysis.This prospective study investigated physical activity (PA), occurrence of physical symptoms, and HRQOL in a large, ethnically-diverse cohort of breast cancer survivors.Source: Journal of cancer survivorship 2007 Jun;1(2):116-28.
