The purpose of this research is to examine the relationship between performance status rating and the actual amount of physical activity a subject does when it is measured by an activity monitor.

Condition Intervention
Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Other: Observation

Further study details as provided by University of Wisconsin, Madison:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the feasibility of examining physical activity (through objective measurement devices) and performance status in a 14-day study of lung cancer patients. [ Time Frame: 14 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the number of days of monitoring necessary to reliably estimate energy expenditure (steps/day, and % of time spent sedentary) in lung cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: 14 days ]

Enrollment: 6
Study Start Date: January 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2011
Primary Completion Date: September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Activity monitoring Other: Observation
monitoring of physical activity for 14 days using physical activity monitoring devices along with activity diary


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Non-small cell lung cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Worst Daily Pain rating of < 4/10
  • ECOG Performance Status of 0, 1, or 2
  • Prior malignancy is allowed as long as it is inactive or well-controlled without current anti-tumor therapy required

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Known brain metastasis
  • Use of assistive devices (cane, crutch)
