Exercise Lifts Cancer Patients
A new study has found that women and men undergoing radiation for breast and prostate cancer felt less fatigued, had improved quality of life and missed fewer treatment sessions when they engaged in a six-week routine of moderate exercise. "To have their fatigue dissipate was really great," says Karen Mustian, assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, who presented the 2005 study this month at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

"It will be the first vaccine licensed by the FDA that can prevent a cancer that kills a large number of women each year," said Michael Keefer, an associate professor in the infectious disease division at the University of Rochester School of Medicine in New York. "If that's not a breakthrough, I don't know what is."
