To investigate the influence of two physical activity and exercising (PAE) interventions, namely resistance training and endurance training in relation to quality of life, depression, fatigue, sleep, anxiety, stress and coping, body image, and social interactions (psychological dimensions); cardiorespiratory fitness, morning cortisol secretion, inflammatory markers, and objective sleep (physiological dimensions), along with cancer-related dimensions


Patients with high grade glioma (WHO III° and IV°) and undergoing radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or both radio- and chemotherapy suffer from decreased quality of life (QoL). This study is to analyse the influence of two adjuvant interventions of physical activity and exercising (PAE) (namely resistance training and endurance training) in relation to quality of life, depression, fatigue, sleep, anxiety, stress and coping, body image, and social interactions (psychological dimensions); cardiorespiratory fitness, morning cortisol secretion, inflammatory markers, and objective sleep (physiological dimensions).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

The art and practice of training, guiding, COUNSELING, and providing support to a less experienced, trained, or knowledgeable person.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.
