The Prostate Cancer Foundation has advised us that the following clinical trial being conducted at Deakin University, 221 Burwood Highway, Burwood, Melbourne is now recruiting.

The efficacy of exercise training and nutritional supplementation in prostate cancer survivors

Trial Summary: The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of resistance exercise training and nutritional supplementation in prostate cancer survivors treated with androgen deprivation therapy.


Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join this study if you are a male aged 50-85 years and are currently undergoing treatment for prostate cancer with androgen deprivation therapy which is expected to continue for at least 52 weeks.

Study details
Participants in this study will be randomly (by chance) allocated to one of two groups. Participants in one group will participate in an individually tailored progressive resistance exercise training program three times a week and receive daily supplementation of calcium, vitamin D and protein over a period of 52 weeks. Participants in the other group will receive the usual care administered to men undergoing androgen deprivation therapy.

Participants will be assessed at baseline, 26 weeks and 52 weeks in order to determine any changes in musculoskeletal health, cardiometabolic risk factors, and health-related quality of life. Assessment is by bone scans, blood tests, and questionnaires. The results of this study may contribute to the development of exercise and nutritional guidelines for optimising overall health in men treated with androgen deprivation therapy.
