PURPOSE To determine the effects of exercise training on cardiopulmonary function and quality of life (QOL) in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors who had completed surgery, radiotherapy, and/or chemotherapy with or without current hormone therapy use. METHODS Fifty-three postmenopausal breast cancer survivors were randomly assigned to an exercise (n =(More)
We conducted a randomized controlled trial to determine the effects of a home-based exercise intervention on change in quality of life (QOL) in recently resected colorectal cancer survivors, most of whom were receiving adjuvant therapy. Participants were randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to either an exercise (n = 69) or control (n = 33) group. The exercise(More)
Insulin, insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) I and II, and IGF binding proteins (IGFBPs) 1 and 3 have been implicated in breast cancer outcomes. We conducted a randomized controlled trial to determine the physiological effects of exercise training on changes in these biological markers in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. Fifty-three postmenopausal(More)
BACKGROUND Robotic radical cystectomy (RC) for cancer is beginning to gain wider acceptance. Yet, the concomitant urinary diversion is typically performed extracorporeally at most centers, primarily because intracorporeal diversion is perceived as technically complex and arduous. Previous reports on robotic, intracorporeal, orthotopic neobladder may not(More)
BACKGROUND The Colorectal Cancer and Home-Based Physical Exercise (CAN-HOPE) trial compared the effects of a 16-week home-based exercise program to usual care on quality of life in colorectal cancer survivors. PURPOSE In this study, we report the weekly exercise barriers from the exercise group. METHODS Participants randomized to the exercise group (N =(More)
UNLABELLED Study Type -Therapy (case series). LEVEL OF EVIDENCE 4. OBJECTIVE To evaluate data obtained from a large, multi-institutional, contemporary series of patients who underwent radical cystectomy (RC) in a universal healthcare system aiming to assess outcome and identify novel prognostic variables. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data were collected and(More)
OBJECTIVES The role of advanced age as an independent prognostic factor for clinical outcomes after radical cystectomy is controversial. The objective of the current study was to assess the associations between age and clinical outcomes in a large, multi-institutional series of patients treated with radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVES Upper-tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is associated with poor outcomes. Our aim was to assess adequacy of renal function and evaluate the role of adjuvant chemotherapy (AC) in patients with UTUC treated by radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) in a universal health care system. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective data from 1,029 patients treated(More)
The objective was to determine the effects of exercise training on changes in blood immune function in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. Fifty-three postmenopausal breast cancer survivors were randomly assigned to an exercise (n=25) or control group (n=28). The exercise group trained on cycle ergometers three times per week for 15 wk. The control(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of exercise training on changes in C-reactive protein (CRP) and other cardiovascular risk factors in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. Fifty-three postmenopausal breast cancer survivors were randomly assigned to an exercise (n = 25) or control group (n = 28). The exercise group trained on cycle(More)
