What causes fatigue during radiation treatment in men with prostate cancer?

The National Institute of Nursing Research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center seeks men with prostate cancer to join a research study about the causes of fatigue during radiation treatment. Researchers also want to learn if exercise can help reduce this type of fatigue. The study involves at least 10 outpatient visits to the NIH Clinical Center (two hours for each visit). Participants will have the option to complete an 8-week treadmill exercise program as part of the study.

You may be eligible if you:

  • Are male, 18 years or older
  • Have been diagnosed with prostate cancer

You may not be eligible if you:

  • Have a chronic inflammatory disease (such as rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Have an infectious disease (such as HIV or tuberculosis)
  • Have had a major psychiatric problem within the last five years
  • Have another type of cancer
  • Are receiving chemotherapy

There is no charge for study-related procedures.

The study is located at the NIH Clinical Center, America's research hospital, on the Metro red line (Medical Center stop) in Bethesda, Maryland.
