Physical activity and quality of life of adult survivors of non-hodgkin lymphoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

[Purpose] The purpose of the study was to assess whether physical activity (PA) is associated with health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adult survivors of aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). [Subjects and Methods] This study included 100 outpatients with NHL (median age 65.0 years; 6 months to 8 years after diagnosis) at an urban university hospital. Multiple regression analysis was performed to assess the association between PA and HRQOL obtained via a self-administered questionnaire. [Results] HRQOL was positively associated with PA, but not with mental health. [Conclusion] The results suggest that PA may enhance HRQOL of adult survivors of NHL.
