Acute Effect of modeRate-intensity aerOBIc Exercise on Colon Cancer Cell Growth

2019-08-20 20:17:13 | BioPortfolio


This study involves drawing blood samples from men before and after they perform 30-minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise. The investigators will evaluate whether adding the exercise serum to colon cancer cells in a dish can reduce the growth of the cells compared to the resting serum.

Note: serum is the liquid part of the blood that carries hormones and metabolites around the body.


Regular exercise is associated with a reduced risk of developing colon cancer. However, the mechanisms underpinning the anti-cancer effect of exercise are not yet fully understood. A recent theory suggests that each time you exercise, the short-lasting spikes in circulating hormones can suppress the growth of cancer cells. Hence, every exercise bout could have a direct anti-cancer effect.

This study will recruit men with an increased of colon cancer and explore whether incubating colon cancer cells with serum collected after a bout of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise influences cell viability in vitro.

The Exercise And Colon Cancer Treatment Trial

This study will examine the biologic processes through which exercise may prevent disease recurrence in patients who have completed treatment for colon cancer.

Effect of Exercise on Biomarkers of Colon Cancer Risk

There is strong observational epidemiologic evidence that physical activity is inversely associated with risk of colon cancer occurrence in both men and women. This association has been f...

Exercise and Colon Cancer

Despite the success of surgery and chemotherapy among people with colon cancer, 30-50% of patients develop recurrent disease. Physical activity has emerged as a potential lifestyle interve...

The Effects of Exercise Training on the Health-Related Fitness of Colon Cancer Survivors

Recent studies have suggested that individuals diagnosed with colon cancer who are inactive and/or overweight, may have poorer survival outcomes. Exercise training has been shown to improv...

Adenocarcinoma in the Intrathoracic Transposed Colon.

Patients who had esophagectomy with colon interposition for benign disease have long survivals. Adenocarcinoma arising in the interposed colon is a possible event. We describe a 65 year old female in ...

Colon adenoma and adenocarcinoma with clear cell components - two case reports.

Diagnoses reflect clear cell morphologies when tumor cells have clear cytoplasm in many organs, and the nature of such clear cells is typically identified. Colorectal tubular adenoma or adenocarcinoma...

Lymphovascular Invasion and Perineural Invasion Negatively Impact Overall Survival for Stage II Adenocarcinoma of the Colon.

Lymphovascular invasion and perineural invasion are histopathological features associated with higher-risk colon cancer.

Histological assessment of stromal maturity as a prognostic factor in surgically treated gastric adenocarcinoma.

Histological assessment of stromal maturity is a potential prognostic factor in colorectal cancer, but its applicability in gastric adenocarcinoma is completely unknown. The aim of this study was to e...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.


The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

A lesion with cytological characteristics associated with invasive adenocarcinoma but the tumor cells are confined to the GLANDULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS of origin. Adenocarcinoma in situ of the CERVIX and the LUNG are the most common.

The segment of LARGE INTESTINE between ASCENDING COLON and DESCENDING COLON. It passes from the RIGHT COLIC FLEXURE across the ABDOMEN, then turns sharply at the left colonic flexure into the descending colon.
