Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to verify the effect of the intervention of a program of physical exercises and health education in women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy.

Clinical Trial Description

According to the National Cancer Institute (INCA), the estimate for Brazil, 2016-2017 biennium, points to the occurrence of about 600,000 new cases of cancer, and breast cancer (58000) in women will be the most frequent. One study revealed that only 12% of women undergoing chemotherapy in CM who participated in a physical exercise program had to readjusted the dose of the medications, while 34% of those who received the conventional treatment needed to readjust the Treatment doses, with neuropathy being one of the most present adverse effects that influenced this adjustment. In this sense, the conduct to keep the patient at rest during the treatment seems to potentiate her side effects, and sedentarism is another factor detrimental to the patient's health. Objective: To verify the effect of the intervention of a program of physical exercises and health education in women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy. Methodology: A sample will consist of 136 (136) Women, over 18 years of age, sedentary, diagnosed with non-metastatic breast cancer and initiating the first cycle of chemotherapy. They will be divided into two groups, randomly and stratified: control group: (CG n = 68) and exercise group: (eg n = 68) that will undergo a supervised training program of combined exercises for 24 weeks, with a frequency of 3 times Weekly and duration of 60 minutes, an unsupervised flexibility training program 2 times a week and both groups (GC and EG) will attend lectures on health education, which are held monthly. ;
