 Total distance (Km)Partial distance* (Km)Distance/day* (Km/d)Time* (h:min)Speed* (Km/h)
CTR WR145 ± 1151 ± 410.4 ± 0.320:59 ± 4:302.1 ± 0.1

  1. Control mice (CTR) and C26-bearing mice (C26) were kept in wheel-equipped cages and performed 19 days of voluntary wheel-running (WR) activity, which was individually recorded. *parameter values are based on the last five days, which correspond to a plateau phase of exercise activity and to overt cachexia in C26-bearing mice. The means ± SEM are shown. Tumor-bearing mice perform voluntary wheel running even in advanced stages of the disease.
