Blood Pressure, Salivary Cortisol, and Inflammatory Cytokine Outcomes in Senior Female Cancer Survivors Enrolled in a Tai Chi Chih Randomized Controlled Trial
This Tai Chi Chih (TCC) feasibility trial was associated with significant reductions in systolic blood pressure (SBP) and cortisol area-under-curve (AUC) in senior female cancer survivors. Larger, definitive trials are needed to confirm these findings.
