Tele-Resistance Training During Chemotherapy For Advanced Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer
The purpose of the study is to evaluate a tele-resistance training exercise program for individuals undergoing chemotherapy for advanced upper gastrointestinal cancer.
Specific Aim #1
Evaluate the feasibility (enrollment, retention, and adherence to exercise sessions and
prescribed exercise volumes), safety, and acceptability of a 12-week tele-RT
intervention during first-line chemotherapy for advanced upper GI cancer.
Specific Aim #2
Compare 12-week changes in muscular strength and muscular endurance, skeletal
muscle index (SMI) and skeletal muscle density (SMD), quality of life, fatigue, and
physical functioning between patients randomized to tele-RT vs. usual care (UC)
during first-line chemotherapy for advanced upper GI cancer.
