Brief Summary:
The trial studies the effects of personalized home-based aerobic and resistance exercises on quality of life, changes in physical activity levels, and the change in inflammatory myokines with the exercise intervention in Interleukin 6 (IL-6), C-reactive Protein (CRP), Leptin, Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta), and Interferon (INF) gamma.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 16 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: A Pilot Study of Combined Aerobic and Resistance Exercise Training in Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma
Actual Study Start Date : February 17, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2023


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Supportive Care
Patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who are receiving immune-checkpoint inhibitor therapy
Other: Combined Aerobic and Resistance Exercise Training
Participants receive personalized exercise plan for home-based two days of aerobic exercises (20-30-minutes) and two days of resistance exercises per week for 12 weeks. After completion of study intervention, participants will be assessed at the of study visit at Week 24.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants who adhere to the exercise intervention [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of patients screened compared to patients enrolled [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  2. Percentage of patients who remained in the study and didn't drop off the study after enrollment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  3. Change in HRQoL as measured by FACT-G Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4, Week 8, Week 12 and Week 24 ]
    There are 27 items in Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy: General (FACT-G) questionnaire, and they are scored on a scale from 0 to 4; 0 being "Not at All", and 4 being "Very much".

  4. The incidence of grade 3-5 toxicities as per CTCAE 5.0 [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
