Details and patient eligibility


A randomized clinical trial evaluating the use of a pedometer and brief exercise coaching in prostate cancer patients treated with androgen deprivation therapy. The investigators want to demonstrate if there are less side effects of hormonal therapy and better quality of life in patients who made regular exercise.

Full description

To evaluate effectiveness of regular exercise and well-being all patients will complete questionnaires about sexual function (IIEF-15) and quality of life. We will also perform at each visits anthropometrics measurement of waist, leg and arm, weight and vital signs. Biochemical analysis and prostatic specific antigen will be done periodically.
