Exercise as a therapeutic tool in the management of mesothelioma

Exercise as a therapeutic tool in the management of mesothelioma

No study to date has examined how appropriately tailored exercise could reduce functional decline and provide a non-invasive supportive intervention for patients with mesothelioma.

Clinicians at the Institute for Respiratory Health are investigating the development of an intervention designed to counteract the aetiology of poor outcomes, enhance quality of life, and improve daily functioning in this patient population. This could prove to have a highly significant impact on clinical care.

Exercise has the unique potential as an intervention to reduce functional decline and provide a non-invasive supportive intervention for those with malignant pleural disease.
