UKOF 2018 | Could exercise be a treatment option for colon cancer?

Vicky Coyle

Vicky Coyle, MD, of Queen’s University Belfast, Belfast, UK, spoke to us at the UK Oncology Forum (OF) 2018, held in Liverpool, UK, about the benefits of physical activity in the adjuvant setting. She discusses her current trial exploring the role of exercise as a treatment after standard chemotherapy and surgery for stage II and III colon cancer. This trial views physical activity as a treatment, with doses and schedules, for the first time, with the aim of increasing patients’ PFS to the same standard as that obtained from adjuvant chemotherapy.
