URCC at ACSO - Chemotherapy and Exercise: The Right Dose of Workout Helps Side Effects PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sebastien Estaque   
Tuesday, 07 June 2016 15:00
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.
