Exercise may help reduce long-term side effects of chemotherapy for breast cancer patients
After treatment for breast cancer, most women suffer side effects such as fatigue, not feeling physically fit and cognitive issues. This can often last for years after treatment. Neuroscientist Emmie Koevoets investigated whether an exercise program could help these women, as there is currently little research on that topic. She concluded that exercise has many beneficial effects, especially for women with high levels of fatigue. She is set to defend her thesis at the University of Amsterdam on Tuesday 27 June.
