Exercise in Patients Undergoing Tumor Molecular Profiling
“Exercise Exposure Data Collection in Patients Undergoing Tumor Molecular Profiling”
This study will recruit approximately 5,000 patients with histologically confirmed cancer who have successfully completed MSK-IMPACT panel testing and collect information about tumor genetic results and patient exercise behavior history. The purpose of the study is to create a registry to collect exercise behavior history in patients who had IMPACT genetic panel testing on protocol IRB #12-245 "Genomic Profiling in Cancer Patients", IRB #06-107 "Storage and Research Use of Human Biospecimens," or IRB #09-141 "Collection of Human Biological Specimens from Patients for Research Studies." The investigators want to find a way to create an exercise database. This database will collect information about tumor genetic results and patient exercise behavior history.
Behavioral - Prior Exercise Behavior Questions - Harvard Health Professionals Exercise Questionnaire
Participants will be asked how often on average over the year prior to their most recent diagnosis they participated in walking or hiking; jogging; running; calisthenics, aerobics, rowing, Nordic track; bicycling; tennis, squash, racquetball; lap swimming; weightlifting; and other aerobic exercise (e.g. heavy outdoor work), as well as their usual walking pace and flights of stairs climbed daily over the past 12 months prior to diagnosis.
Behavioral - Current Exercise Behavior Questions: International Physical Activity Questionnaire Short Form (IPAQ SF)
The purpose of this questionnaire is to provide common instruments that can be used to obtain internationally comparable data on exercise exposure in adults aged 15 to 80 years old.
