FC Prostate: football training for men undergoing androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer

Research output: ThesisPhDResearchpeer-review


Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common non-cutaneous malignancy in men in developed countries. Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a cornerstone in the management of the disease with approximately 50% of men diagnosed with PCa receiving ADT. The intent of ADT may be curative in combination with radiotherapy or palliative for disseminated disease.
ADT is associated with significant side effects including loss of lean and bone mass, gains in fat mass, deteriorating physical functioning and increased fracture rates. While aerobic and resistance exercise may ameliorate some of the side effects men with PCa are predominantly sedentary and novel approaches to life style interventions have been warranted. On this background, we designed The FC Prostate Randomised Controlled Trial with the overall aim to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of football training compared to usual care control in
men undergoing ADT for PCa.
