Fit ABCS Trial Summary

This trial will study whether it is possible to give brain tumor survivors 12 weeks of aerobic exercise training led by their community, and whether a web-based platform can be used to deliver this training.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for children aged 6 to under 18 who have had a brain tumor, are in remission, and can understand English. They must be at least one year post-diagnosis but not more than fifteen years. A parent or guardian must agree to participate in health assessments. Kids with certain conditions, metal implants, recent cognitive therapy, or those pregnant cannot join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if a web-based aerobic exercise program led by community instructors is doable for young brain tumor survivors over 12 weeks. It aims to see if this online platform works well for delivering the training.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves an exercise program rather than medication, side effects may include typical physical activity-related issues such as muscle soreness or fatigue. However, specific side effects will depend on each child's condition.
