Effects of strength training for prostate cancer patients during androgen deprivation therapy
MetadataShow full item record
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) increases survival rates among prostate cancer (PCa) patients with locally advanced disease, but is associated with side effects that may impair daily function through negative effects on muscle tissue. Although strength training may counteract several side effects induced by ADT, additional randomized controlled trials are needed to expand this knowledge. So far no studies have investigated the effects of strength training during long-‐term ADT on the muscle cellular level.Paper I: Thorsen L., Nilsen T.S., Raastad T., Courneya K.S., Skovlund E,.
