Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Improving Exercise Capacity With Tailored Physical Activity in Lymphoma & Breast Cancer Patients Undergoing Tx
To provide critical participant enrollment data necessary to complete a larger definitive clinical trial in the future.
This study is a 2-arm, parallel design, single-blind randomized controlled pilot study designed to compare the effects of a tailored multi-level physical activity intervention (PAI) vs healthy living intervention (HLI) on exercise capacity, cardiovascular and cognitive function, health-related quality of life (QOL), strength and fatigue among lymphoma and breast cancer patients undergoing active treatment with anthracycline based chemotherapy (anthra-bC).
Subjects age 18-85 years old
Stage I-IV Hodgkin's (HL) or Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL) or I-III Breast Cancer patients who are receiving (within 6 weeks of initiation) or are scheduled to receive potentially cardiotoxic systemic therapies (e.g. chemotherapy regimens [anthracyclines, trastuzumab]), immuno-therapies (immune checkpoint inhibitors [ICI's]), hormonal therapies (aromatase inhibitors) or radiation (within 8 weeks of completion).
Evidence of COVID19 within the last 60 days or recent (21 days) exposure to close personal contact who has tested positive for COVID19.
Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic blood pressure >190 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure >100 mm Hg)
A recent history of alcohol or drug abuse
Inflammatory conditions such as lupus or inflammatory bowel disease, or another medical condition that might compromise safety or successful completion
Other exclusions include those with contraindications to MRI; unstable angina; inability to exercise on a treadmill or stationary cycle; significant ventricular arrhythmias (>20 PVCs/min due to gating difficulty); atrial fibrillation with uncontrolled ventricular response; acute myocardial infarction within 28 days; claustrophobia; pregnancy; those unable to provide informed consent (able to read and write English); or moving within 12 mos. of enrollment.
