Although standard treatment improves survival for acute leukemia patients, development of treatment side effects is of major concern. Therefore, it is important to explore the impact of adjunct therapies, such as exercise, in mitigating treatment-related side effects. The primary purpose of this study was to examine the effects of exercise on selected fitness parameters and fatigue in acute leukemia patients undergoing treatment. A secondary purpose was to examine the relationship between changes in selected fitness parameters and fatigue. Ten patients with acute leukemia participated in this study. Exercise protocol included aerobic, resistance, and flexibility performed 3 times/week for 6 weeks. Significant changes in cardiovascular endurance and overall fatigue (p = 0.009 for both), with no changes in overall muscular endurance (p = 0.715) were observed. In conclusion, the results of this study suggest that administration of exercise during the leukemia treatment promotes improvement of cardiovascular endurance, maintenance of muscular endurance and reduction in fatigue levels.Cardiovascular endurance assessments were performed on a Recumbent bike model cateye EC 3500 (Dallas, TX) or Treadmill (Pro-Form model 350, Logan, UT ) . Muscular endurance/strength exercises (lateral and frontal raises, militaryanbsp;...
