Exercise to Prevent AnthraCycline-based Cardio-Toxicity Study (EXACT)
As the numbers of cancer survivors grow, the long-term adverse effects of cancer therapy are
becoming increasingly apparent. Most prominent are the toxic effects on the heart
(cardiotoxicity) which may lead to cardiac dysfunction and increased risk of cardiovascular
disease (CVD). The investigators hypothesize that an individualized aerobic training program
for cancer patients receiving active treatment will be both feasible and safe and will
result in improvements in overall levels of physical activity and quality of life.
Feasibility will be assessed by evaluating the recruitment, adherence and attrition rates,
along with program safety. Efficacy will be assessed by evaluating changes in health-related
