Supporting prostate cancer research

IMPACT: The efficacy of exercise training and nutritional supplementation on musculo-skeletal and cardio-metabolic health in men living with prostate cancer treated with androgen deprivation therapy.

Dr Steve Fraser, School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, Deakin University

This study examined the health benefits of a combined exercise training and nutritional supplementation program for men treated with hormone therapy (or androgen deprivation therapy) for prostate cancer. The study assessed the effects of the program on muscle, bone and cardiovascular health as well as mood, mind function and quality of life. All eligible participants completed three comprehensive health assessments at Deakin University (Burwood campus) including scans to assess bone density and muscle mass. All participants received a free year supply of vitamin D capsules. Some participants were provided with a free 12-month supervised exercise program as well as daily nutritional supplementation with protein, calcium and vitamin D.
