A Phase III Study of the Impact of a Physical Activity Program on Disease-Free Survival in Patients With High Risk Stage II or Stage III Colon Cancer: A Randomized Controlled Trial (CHALLENGE)
RATIONALE: Participating in a physical activity program designed to increase free time
physical activity and receiving written health education materials may influence the chance
of cancer recurring as well as impact on physical fitness, psychological well-being and the
quality of life of patients who have undergone surgery and chemotherapy for colon cancer. It
is not yet known whether giving a physical activity program together with health education
materials is more effective than giving health education materials alone for patients who
have undergone colon cancer treatment.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying a physical activity program given
together with health education materials to see how well it works compared with giving
health education materials alone for patients who have undergone treatment for high-risk
stage II or stage III colon cancer.
