Abstract

A reduced exercise capacity in patients with advanced NSCLC correlates with increased morbidity and mortality. It is caused by the cancer and its treatment. Therapeutic exercise may be beneficial and NMES to the lower limb muscles may be a pragmatic means of providing this [1,2]. Before embarking on a phase III study, we undertook this randomised phase II study with the primary aim of determining if NMES is acceptable (assessed by adherence) to patients with NSCLC receiving palliative chemotherapy.
