ALTG 08/001 Physical Activity in lung cancer (PAL)

The PAL study is a randomised control trial which aims to evaluate the effects of a structured physical activity program on fatigue and quality of life for people with non-resectable lung cancer (NSCLC, SCLC). Participants are randomised to either the usual standard of care or a 2-month physical activity programme, which consists of a combination of homebased and supervised exercise sessions. The supervised sessions also include a behavioural change component to help promote the importance, benefits and maintenance of physical activity.

This study is now complete with 112 randomised participants. Results were presented at the 2015 ASCO Meeting and publications are currently in process.
