Cytokine-mediated changes associated with improvements in cancer-related fatigue induced by exercise: Results from a randomized pilot study of cancer patients receiving radiotherapy.

9632 Background: Radiation therapy (RTH) results in dysregulated inflammatory profiles which increase cancer-related fatigue (CRF). Research suggests physical exercise can have a positive influence on CRF during RTH. Exercise may mediate improvements in CRF through a self-regulating inflammatory exercise response involving cytokines and myokines (muscle… CONTINUE READING
