Some USA cohorts' results of research indicated that for breast cancer survivors who received chemotherapy, weight gain was found to adversely affect their prognosis. In the present study, we evaluated Japanese subjects receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer using a physical activity monitor for an average 88.7 days. Estimated average daily steps in subjects were 6836.7 and average weight gain was 3.3%. The rate of weight gain was strongly negatively correlated with the average amount of time with more than 3.0 METs (metabolic equivalent). The higher score of depression was strongly correlated with the average amount of time with less than 1.5 METs. Moreover, high rate of total body fat after chemotherapy was correlated with low perception of physical health status (PCS; Physical Component Summary). Based on these results we suggest that low physical activity induced weight gain and mental disorder.
