  1. Results are expressed as mean value ± SEM. SC: sedentary control (n = 7), ST: sedentary tumour-bearing (n = 7), SPF: sedentary pair-fed (n = 7), EC: trained control (n = 6), ET: trained tumour-bearing (n = 6), EPF: trained pair-fed (n = 6). *p < 0.01 vs. sedentary control; #p < 0.001 vs. sedentary pair-fed. *p < 0.001 significantly different from control values.
  2. # p < 0.001 significantly different from sedentary tumour values.
  3. @ p < 0.001 significantly different from exercise pair-fed values.
