Exercise produces more cells that attack and destroy cancer

American scientists found that cancer patients who exercised have more cells to attack and destroy tumors.

Scientists have long known the benefits of exercise in reducing cancer risk, but the study was just published in the journal Science. Cancer Cells, shows that exercise is also effective for patients cancer.

In the study, scientists from NYU Grossman School of Medicine, in New York (USA), found that mice with cancer – exercised for 30 minutes, 5 times a week – reduced the rate of tumor formation by 50%.

Another trial found that mice that regularly ran on a treadmill for 3 weeks lost 25% of their tumor weight.

The researchers also found that the mice that exercised, had a 175% increase in the production of cancer-killing cells

Human testing

After having confirmed results in mice, the researchers conducted human trials with 75 pancreatic cancer patients.

These patients were asked to do 30-minute strength-training exercises, including weight training or yoga twice a week, and brisk walking for 30 minutes three times a week.

They followed this regimen for 6 weeks before undergoing surgery to remove the cancer.

As a result, blood tests showed that patients do exercise more cells attack and destroy the tumor. And these patients also have a 50% higher 5-year survival rate, according to Daily Mail.

Exercise helps create adrenaline, which stimulates the body to produce more of the protein interleukin-15 (IL-15). This protein increases the ability of immune cells TCD8 – attacks and destroys cancer cells.

These results show for the first time that exercise may also help treat pancreatic cancer, NYU researchers say.

They say this is important for pancreatic cancer because there are few treatments for the disease.

Lead author of the study, Dr Emma Kurz, an oncologist, said: ‘For the first time, this finding shows that exercise affects the immune environment inside cells. pancreatic tumor.

The study found that activating IL-15 signaling in pancreatic cancer could be an important future treatment. Daily Mail.
