Everyday more than 45 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in Australia.
Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) is an useful anti-cancer therapy that reduces prostate cancer mortality. However, ADT may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the impact of ADT on cardiovascular structure and function, as well as the impact of exercise training during ADT.
