‚ÄčThe LITE Study: A Randomized Controlled Trial of Light Therapy for Cancer-related Fatigue


The LITE study is randomized controlled trial of light therapy for the treatment of cancer-related fatigue (CRF) in 124 post-treatment cancer patients. CRF is one of the most common and distressing symptoms that comes with a cancer diagnosis. It is a feeling of extreme exhaustion and lack of energy and is not relieved by rest or sleep. This type of fatigue often appears before a cancer diagnosis, worsens during treatment, and can last for months or even years after treatments have ended in up to 35% of patients. The LITE Study is being conducted at the University of Calgary and is funded by the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute
