Kuehn M et al. (2023). Physical Activity as a Treatment for Cancer-Related Fatigue in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults: A Systematic Review. Children. 10(3), 572; https://doi.org/10.3390/children10030572
Neu M et al. (2021). Mental health and health-related quality of life in preschool-aged childhood cancer survivors. Results of the prospective cohort study ikidS-OEVA. Pediatr Blood Cancer. 68(8): e29039.
- Already at preschool age, young childhood cancer survivors (YCCS) may be at increased risk of mental health (MH) problems and impaired health-related quality of life (HrQoL). This could have impacts on subsequent school performance and educational attainment. Follow-up health care for YCCS may include early screening for MH problems and reasons for HrQoL deficits.
Stössel S et al. (2020). Benefits of Exercise Training for Children and Adolescents Undergoing Cancer Treatment: Results From the Randomized Controlled MUCKI Trial. Front Pediatr. 8: Article 243.
- Within one of the first randomized controlled trials, this study provides evidence for a positive effect of combined training in childhood cancer patients (CCPs) during intensive cancer treatment.
Faber J et al. (2018). Burden of cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular disease in childhood cancer survivors: Data from the German CVSS study. Eur Heart J. 39: 1555-1562.
- This large childhood cancer survivors (CCS) screening examination revealed consistently in comparison to three population samples a considerably increased risk for premature cardiovascular disease (CVD). The findings in these young adult CCS indicate a high burden of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in the long term.
