Impact of resistance training on body composition and metabolic syndrome variables during androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer: a pilot randomized controlled trial

Background

Prostate cancer patients on androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) experience adverse effects such as lean mass loss, known as sarcopenia, fat gain, and changes in cardiometabolic factors that increase risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Resistance training can increase lean mass, reduce body fat, and improve physical function and quality of life, but no exercise interventions in prostate cancer patients on ADT have concomitantly improved body composition and MetS. This pilot trial investigated 12 weeks of resistance training on body composition and MetS changes in prostate cancer patients on ADT. An exploratory aim examined if a combined approach of training and protein supplementation would elicit greater changes in body composition.

Conclusions

A 12-week resistance training intervention effectively improved sarcopenia, body fat %, strength and quality of life in hypogonadal prostate cancer patients, but did not change MetS or physical function. PRO did not offer additional benefit in improving body composition.

Target for Malaria Vaccine Identified by Yale Researches

Yale Researchers Identify Target for Novel Malaria VaccineYale UniversityA team of researchers has developed a vaccine against malaria infection targeting a unique protein produced by malaria parasites. Plasmodium macrophage migration inhibitory factor (PMIF) suppresses the infection fighting cells that respond to threats and protect the body against reinfection. PMIF is critical for the completion of [...]

Biomarker Spotlight: Zonulin

Why measure zonulin?The zonulin biomarker is a pre-haptoglobin (pre-HP2) protein found in the gut. It is responsible for the permeability of the mucosal barrier of the intestines. When zonulin binds to the epithelial cells of the intestines a signal cascade is induced. This cascade disassembles the paracellular tight junctions of the intestinal wall. The tight [...]

Biomarker Spotlight: FGF-23

FGF-23 is a hormone that is secreted by osteoblasts within the bones. This protein works with the kidneys to help regulated levels of phosphate in the blood/serum. The kidney gets rid of excess phosphate by excreting it in urine. When more phosphate is needed, the kidney reabsorb phosphate into the bloodstream. FGF-23 signals the kidneys [...]

New Cancer Therapy Helps Immune Cells Destroy Tumors

A next generation cancer therapy helps immune cells detect, and destroy cancer cells. This therapy works by evading two mechanisms that cancer cells use to evade macrophages, cells whose job it is to eat and destroy cancerous cells.“The researchers [at Brigham and Women's Hospital] tested the supramolecular therapeutic in animal models of aggressive forms of [...]
