'Just do it!' not good enough for cancer patients, UR researchers say
Date:5/30/2012

ens to the days when it was not known what types of chemotherapy and how much should be given to cancer patients. Through rigorous scientific inquiry, physicians were able to refine the way they prescribe and administer chemo and Mustian believes the same refinement is possible with exercise.

"I think we do an incredible disservice to people who have just been diagnosed with cancer when we say, 'Just do it!' Mustian added. "Sometimes we see 72-year-olds who are more fit than 55-year-olds, and so it is best to look at functional capacity, and then to be as specific as possible when it comes to personalizing exercise for people with cancer. Otherwise we are sending mixed messages."

Sprod, a research assistant professor, will receive the ASCO Pain and Symptom Management Research Merit Award; she is one of 4 young investigators whose ASCO research presentations were selected for a high impact. All exercise studies were funded through a variety of private and government sources, including the National Cancer Institute.
