Supportive Studies: Long Term Effects
Childhood ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) survivors are at increased risk for early mortality, second malignancies, obesity and heart disease, often unavoidable because of either the effects of the cancer or the treatment required for cure. Long-term outcomes are also influenced by lifestyle choices, and may be exacerbated in ALL survivors whose physical disabilities prevent participation in regular physical activity.
The study will compare percent body fat, muscle strength, ankle joint flexibility, feeling in arms and legs, and ability to exercise in a group of adult ALL survivors to a group of healthy volunteers from the community.
To provide comprehensive and objective information on impairments of musculoskeletal health, sensory function, and fitness among a large group of childhood ALL survivors, and to define high risk groups by assessing treatment factors that contribute to impaired function.
