Book Description

Exercise and Disease reviews the role of exercise and physical fitness in the prevention or causation of cancer. Relevant mechanistic studies, particularly immunomodulation, are emphasized. The book also interprets effects of long-term exercise on immune functions and data that shows how exercise influences disease resistance. On the other hand, exercise may be involved in immune mediated motion injuries. Finally, exercise plays a potential role in cancer therapy. The book will be useful to researchers interested in the most recent developments and their interpretations.
