Supporting prostate cancer research

Can nutrition therapy with high intensity interval training improve cancer-related fatigue in men with prostate cancer on androgen deprivation therapy?

Cancer fatigue is one of the most prevalent, prolonged and distressing side effects of prostate cancer treatment with androgen deprivation therapy. Many men change their diet and exercise habits during and after treatment. Yet there is little research available for the optimal dietary and exercise prescription to reduce side effects such as fatigue.

The University of Queensland team of dietetics and exercise oncology are collaborating to better understand the effects of diet and exercise on cancer-related fatigue and quality of life in men treated with androgen deprivation therapy. The information gained from this study will help to establish natural therapies for reducing side effects from treatment and improve quality of life for men with prostate cancer.

This is a randomised controlled trial where participants were allocated to either usual care or intervention (nutrition therapy and high-intensity interval training).

This trial is no longer recruiting participants.
