Get strong to fight childhood cancer: an exercise intervention for children and adolescents undergoing anti-cancer treatment

Project description

Making children stronger to fight cancer

Walking, running, biking, swimming and many other types of physical activity have been observed to lower cancer risk. Likewise, morbidity during cancer treatment increases due to physical inactivity, as well as cancer-related fatigue and reduced health-related quality of life. In this context, exercise oncology (adapted exercise training in cancer patients) is an increasingly recognised, promising healthcare intervention. While exercise oncology revealed notable effects on tolerance and completion rate of cancer treatment in adults, strong evidence for exercise efficiency in childhood is lacking. The EU-funded FORTEe project will evaluate a personalised and standardised exercise intervention for children and adolescents undergoing anticancer treatment.
