A Randomized Trial of Aerobic Exercise and Sleep Quality in Lymphoma Patients Receiving Chemotherapy or No Treatments

Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, 05/04/2012

Aerobic exercise training (AET) did not significantly improve sleep quality in this heterogeneous sample of lymphoma patients, however, clinically identifiable subgroups appeared to benefit. Future exercise trials targeting these responsive subgroups are needed to confirm these findings. If replicated in larger and more focused trials, aerobic exercise may be an attractive option to manage sleep dysfunction in cancer patients because of its favorable safety profile and other documented health benefits.
