Exercise Maintains Sexual Activity In Men Undergoing Androgen Suppression For Prostate Cancer: A Randomized Controlled Trial, Prue Cormie, Robert Newton, Dennis Taaffe, Nigel Spry, David Joseph, M Akhlil Hamid, Daniel Galvao

Background:Previous research has shown exercise to be an effective method to mitigate many adverse treatment-related effects of androgen suppression therapy (AST) but the potential impact of exercise on sexual activity remains unknown. The purpose of this investigation was to report the effect of a 12-week exercise program on sexual activity in prostate cancer patients undergoing AST.Methods:Fifty-seven prostate cancer patients undergoing AST were randomly assigned to an exercise program (resistance and aerobic modes; n=29) or usual care control (n=28). Sexual activity was assessed by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer prostate cancer-specific quality ...


Safety And Efficacy Of Resistance Exercise In Prostate Cancer Patients With Bone Metastases, Prue Cormie, Robert Newton, Nigel Spry, David Joseph, Dennis Taaffe, Daniel Galvao Nov 2014

Safety And Efficacy Of Resistance Exercise In Prostate Cancer Patients With Bone Metastases, Prue Cormie, Robert Newton, Nigel Spry, David Joseph, Dennis Taaffe, Daniel Galvao

Background:Due to concerns of fragility fracture, exercise is a perceived contraindication for prostate cancer patients with bone metastases. These patients experience significant functional impairment and muscle atrophy, which may lead to an increased likelihood of skeletal complications (i.e., pathological fracture, bone pain) and/or falls. Safe resistance exercise prescription may counteract this effect. The aim of this feasibility trial was to determine the safety and efficacy of resistance exercise by prostate cancer survivors with bone metastatic disease.Methods:Twenty men with established bone metastases secondary to prostate cancer were randomly assigned to a 12-week resistance exercise program in ...

Severely obese men and women (body mass index ≥ 35 ≤ 55 kg/m2; Mage = 44.8 years, SD = 9.3) were randomly assigned to a 6-month physical activity support treatment paired with either nutrition education (n = 83) or cognitive-behavioral nutrition (n = 82) methods for weight loss. Both groups had significant improvements in physical activity, fatigue, self-regulation for eating, and fruit and vegetable intake. Compared to those in the nutrition education group, participants in the behavioral group demonstrated greater overall increases in fruit and vegetable intake and physical activity. These group differences were associated with changes that occurred after Month 3 ...
