INTense Exercise foR surVivAL among Men with Metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer (INTERVAL – MCRPC) (GAP4).

Exercise has been established as a safe and effective activity leading to improved physical function and quality of life in men with prostate cancer. However, little information exists regarding whether exercise can increase overall survival and reduce disease progression, skeletal-related events, and pain in patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer. The primary objective of this study is to determine if high intensity aerobic and resistance training plus psychosocial support increases overall survival compared to psychosocial support alone in prostate cancer patients. The term psychosocial relates to the interrelation of psychological and social thoughts and behaviours, thus support of this nature will be provided to all participants.
