  • Title : Neuromuscular deconditioning and reconditioning in localized colon cancer patients : biological mechanisms and role of the resistance exercise
  • Supervisor : Pr. Patrick Manckoundia
  • Co-Supervisor : Dr. Gil Scaglioni
  • Research Topic : This project aims to improve the understanding of muscle deconditioning etiology observed in cancer diseases. Neuromuscular deconditioning is becoming an aspect of paramount importance if we consider the alteration of the neuromuscular function as a prognostic factor for survival and as a deep change affecting the patient’s quality of life. The first part of this project will evaluate the pathology and the surgical procedure impacts on the neuromuscular function of localized colon cancer patients. The second will aim to determine the specific impact of aerobic and resistance training on the patient’s neuromuscular function. In addition to its fundamental interest, this project has a major clinical interest, as it will provide a scientifically strong answer to the clinician’s expectations concerning the effectiveness of muscle strengthening as a countermeasure to limit alteration of neuromuscular function and thus, improve the prescription of physical activity according to the targeted objectives.
