A Progressive Exercise Intervention Improved AGFR in Breast Cancer Survivors

Key clinical point: An exercise intervention improved AGFR in breast cancer survivors, which could have important health benefits.

Major finding: AGFR improved significantly with the exercise intervention vs. usual care (P less than .001), and AGFR correlated strongly with HOMA-IR (r = .95; P less than .01).

Study details: A prospective, randomized study of 100 breast cancer survivors.

Disclosures: The National Cancer Institute funded the study. The authors reported having no disclosures.
