INTense Exercise foR surVivAL Among Men With Metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer (INTERVAL)

About the Study

This study will determine if high intensity aerobic and resistance training (with supervised exercise) plus psychosocial support increases overall survival compared to psychosocial support alone (with self-directed exercise) in patients with castrate-resistant cancer. NOTE: This study is no longer enrolling people. 

Type of Study

This is a parallel assignment study with two arms. 

  • This is a  study, which means that participants will be placed into one of the two study arms by chance. Neither patients nor the research doctor will choose the group participants are placed in.
  • One arm is the supervised exercise group, where supervised high intensity aerobic and resistance exercise will taper to self-management with psychosocial support. 
  • The second arm will be a self-directed exercise group with psychosocial support. 

What the Study Entails

  • Study participants must be able to travel to one of the study-designated exercise facilities
    • up to three days per week during cycle 0 (4 weeks)
    • two days per week for cycles 1-8 (32 weeks), and
    • once per week for cycles 9-11 (12 weeks).
  • Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires and undergo physical assessments every three cycles.
  • Participants must be able to attend exercise testing visits as required by the study.
  • Participants will be studied for up to five years.
