Resistance, aerobic exercise improves quality of life in older long-term survivors of prostate cancer

the ONA take:

A recent study demonstrated that aerobic and resistance exercise appears to have beneficial effects on health-related quality of life (HRQoL).

The researchers examined effects, moderators, and mediators of 12 months of exercise on HRQoL in older long-term survivors.

The study included a total of 100 men who were randomized to two groups. The exercise (EX) group had 6 months of supervised aerobic and resistance exercise followed by 6 months of a home-based maintenance program.

The physical activity (PA) group were given printed material regarding physical activity for 12 months. The participants were assessed at 6 and 12 months.

The EX group demonstrated significant benefits in global QoL, physical function, and social function compared with the PA group at 6 months.

In addition, the effects on physical function were sustained at 12 months. Moderating factors included marital status, initiation of exercise sooner after diagnosis, and previous use of bisphosphonates.
