About this study
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a supervised exercise-training program, initiated prior to chemotherapy induction (pre-conditioning) and continued throughout chemotherapy treatment, can preserve short- and long-term cardiovascular performance, skeletal muscle function, cognitive ability and quality of life better than current standard or care recommendations for exercise during chemotherapy.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
