Comparison of Two-treadmill Test Protocols to Evaluate Endurance in People With Cancer

2014-08-27 03:14:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

During this study the investigators will compare the use of two treadmill tests in people diagnosed with cancer. The STEEP treadmill protocol is often used to evaluate the endurance of people diagnosed with cancer, however, since it is based on step increases in speed or ramp, it may not related to normal function. The new test, which is based on the body response to increased activity has not been used with people with cancer but may provide a better approximation of endurance demands during daily function. Our question is whether the new treadmill test can be used to evaluate aerobic function with people with cancer better than the STEEP treadmill test.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

A voluntary organization concerned with the prevention and treatment of cancer through education and research.

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
