Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The primary objective is to determine the effectiveness of exercise, compared to usual care or no treatment, on biomarkers and outcomes of cachexia in adults with cancer. Secondary objectives, subject to the availability of data, are to examine the acceptability and safety of exercise in this setting and to compare effectiveness according to the characteristics of the exercise intervention or patient population.
