Guaraná and Cancer-Related FatigueResearch Question:
What is the impact of daily guaraná energy bars versus usual-care on cancer-related
fatigue in cancer survivors?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester Medical Center
This is a six-week study through the Cancer Control unit in the Department of Surgery.
This study will recruit cancer survivors (4-36 months post-treatment) and randomly
assign them to three arms:
1) eats a guaraná energy bar twice a day, once in the morning and once at lunch-time.
2) eats a guaraná energy bar once a day only, in the morning.
3) usual-care only, completes entire study without eating the guaraná energy bars
during study but receives 'usual-care' for cancer survivors.
The three arms will all be assessed for cancer-related fatigue, mood, cognition, physical
performance, blood glucose changes, blood glutamine levels and inflammatory markers
at the start of the study and at the final visit. Cancer-related fatigue levels will
also be assessed at the midpoint visit.
