URCC at ACSO - Chemotherapy and Exercise: The Right Dose of Workout Helps Side Effects PDF Print E-mail

Researchers at the University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer Institute discovered something simple and inexpensive to reduce neuropathy in hands and feet due to chemotherapy—exercise.

The study, involving more than 300 cancer patients, is to be
presented this weekend and honored as a “Best of ASCO” among 5,800 abstracts at the world’s largest gathering of oncologists, the 
American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting 2016.  More than a dozen other Wilmot scientists also were
invited to present data at the meeting.

Investigators for the exercise study directly compared the
neuropathic symptoms in non-exercisers to the pain among
patients who took part in a specialized six-week walking routine
with gentle, resistance-band training at home.

The annual meeting of the URCC NCORP Research Base will be September 9 and 10 at the Rochester Convention Center.  It will follow the same format as in previous years, i.e., we will meet all day Friday and Saturday until noon with a group dinner Friday night.  Guests will be staying at Rochester’s “Premier Boutique Hotel,” the Strathallan

Last year, the study chairs from our active protocols were available Thursday night to discuss each of their studies with NCORP site staff and investigators in face-to-face small groups.  Feedback from meeting attendees and study chairs was overwhelmingly positive for this arrangement.  We will therefore be offering this forum for discussion of study-specific questions, issues, and successes again this year.
