Improved gut integrity in female breast cancer survivors after a 12-week exercise intervention

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstract


Anticancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy, indirectly or directly reduce gut barrier function, leading to gastrointestinal illnesses, nutrient malabsorption, endotoxemia and chronic low-grade systemic inflammation. While exercise is promoted as part of the cancer treatment plan, as well as for cancer survivors, there is little evidence on the impact of different exercise intensities on gut barrier function.
