Pregnancy after atrial repair for transposition of the great arteries. (1/3293)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of pregnancy in patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) who have undergone atrial repair. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis (1962-94) of 342 TGA patients who underwent atrial repair. Of 231 known late survivors, 48 were women over 18 years old who were interviewed about possible reproductive plans and previous pregnancies. As a control, comparison was made with data of 57 500 women (mean age 26 years) obtained from the Swiss Statistical Bank in Bern. RESULTS: Mean follow up was 13.7 years; 66% remained asymptomatic, 29% had mild to moderate cardiac symptoms, and 5% suffered from severe cardiac symptoms (New York Heart Association grade III-IV). Thirty six of the 48 women wished to bear children and, to date, there have been 10 live births, two spontaneous first trimester abortions, and one induced abortion at 16 weeks. During pregnancy there was one case of cardiac deterioration and two cases of pneumonia. There was no evidence of congenital heart disease in the children. CONCLUSIONS: In this relatively small series the completion of pregnancy in women with TGA who had undergone atrial repair and who had normal functional cardiac status was uncomplicated  (+info)

Survival and prognostic factors of invasive aspergillosis after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (2/3293)

To determine prognostic factors for survival in bone marrow transplant recipients with invasive aspergillosis (IA), we retrospectively reviewed 27 IA cases observed in our bone marrow transplantation unit between January 1994 and October 1994. On 30 September 1997, six patients were alive and disease-free. The median survival after IA diagnosis was 36 days. Of eight variables found to be related to survival according to the univariate analysis, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) status at IA diagnosis (P = .0008) and the cumulative prednisolone dose taken during the week preceding IA diagnosis (CPDlw) (P < .0001) were selected by a backward stepwise Cox regression model. A three-stage classification was established: CPD1w of < or =7 mg/kg (3 of 8 patients died; 60-day survival rate, 88%), CPD1w of >7 mg/kg and no GVHD (9 of 10 patients died; 60-day survival rate, 20%), and CPD1w of >7 mg/kg and active acute grade 2 or more or extensive chronic GVHD (9 of 9 patients died; 30-day survival rate, 0) (P < .0001).  (+info)

A case of long-term survival with stage IV small cell lung cancer and early-stage central-type squamous cell lung cancer treated by photodynamic therapy. (3/3293)

The present report is on a 67-year-old man with stage IV small cell lung cancer and early-stage centrally located squamous cell cancer of the lung. He was diagnosed as small cell lung cancer with multiple metastasis to the ipsilateral lung and was found to have a central-type early-stage squamous cell cancer by bronchoscope. After obtaining a complete response to the small cell lung cancer with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, photodynamic therapy was applied to the squamous cell carcinoma, resulting in complete disappearance of the tumor. Recurrence of small cell cancer occurred at the ipsilateral lung and this patient died of small cell cancer 8 years after initiation of treatment. Post mortem examination confirmed complete disappearance of squamous cell cancer treated by photodynamic therapy. This is a rare case of long-term survival with stage IV small cell lung cancer and early-stage central-type squamous cell lung cancer successfully treated by photodynamic therapy.  (+info)

Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. (4/3293)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

Ultrasound B-mode changes in the uterus and ovaries and Doppler changes in the uterus after total body irradiation and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in childhood. (5/3293)

Internal genitalia and uterine blood flow were assessed by ultrasound in 12 females 4.0-10.9 years after total body irradiation and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for childhood leukaemia or lymphoma. Median age of the participants was 12.7 years (range 6.1-17.6) at bone marrow transplantation and 21.5 years (11.6-25.6) at the follow-up study. At follow-up all had entered puberty and 11/12 females had experienced the menarche. Eight females received sex steroid replacement therapy, three had spontaneous pubertal development and one woman experienced symptoms of estrogen deficiency. Median uterine and ovarian volumes were significantly reduced to -2.6 standard deviation scores (SDS) (-6.3 to -0.6), P = 0.002, and -2.6 SDS (-4.8 to -0.5), P = 0.002, respectively, compared with normal controls. Follicles were only detectable in two individuals. Uterine blood flow was impaired, as a systolic blood flow could be measured in 6/9 individuals, and a diastolic blood flow in 1/9 females. Our results indicate that the prescribed dosage of hormone replacement therapy, which was sufficient to induce bleeding and suppress other stigmata of premature menopause, was inadequate to generate normal uterine growth. In order to achieve uterine growth higher doses of hormone replacement therapy may be required. Our results confirm pelvic ultrasound as a reliable tool for investigation of internal female genitalia; however, in an infertility setting further tests are indicated.  (+info)

Attentional ability among survivors of leukaemia. (6/3293)

Attentional ability in 19 survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and 19 sibling controls was assessed using a neuropsychological model of attention. Analysis revealed that children who had received treatment for leukaemia exhibited significantly poorer performance on measures of the "focus encode" and "focus execute" elements of attention and on measures of the ability to respond to external cues and feedback. No significant differences in performance were found for measures of sustained attention and the ability to shift attention. These results indicate that children who have received treatment for leukaemia may experience highly specific attentional deficits that could have an impact on academic performance, particularly mathematical and reading skills. It is suggested that this underlying attentional deficit might be the source of the neuropsychological sequelae associated with the disease. Future attempts at remediation should incorporate activities specifically designed to ameliorate focusing difficulties.  (+info)

Patient survival after D1 and D2 resections for gastric cancer: long-term results of the MRC randomized surgical trial. Surgical Co-operative Group. (7/3293)

Controversy still exists on the optimal surgical resection for potentially curable gastric cancer. Much better long-term survival has been reported in retrospective/non-randomized studies with D2 resections that involve a radical extended regional lymphadenectomy than with the standard D1 resections. In this paper we report the long-term survival of patients entered into a randomized study, with follow-up to death or 3 years in 96% of patients and a median follow-up of 6.5 years. In this prospective trial D1 resection (removal of regional perigastric nodes) was compared with D2 resection (extended lymphadenectomy to include level 1 and 2 regional nodes). Central randomization followed a staging laparotomy. Out of 737 patients with histologically proven gastric adenocarcinoma registered, 337 patients were ineligible by staging laparotomy because of advanced disease and 400 were randomized. The 5-year survival rates were 35% for D1 resection and 33% for D2 resection (difference -2%, 95% CI = -12%-8%). There was no difference in the overall 5-year survival between the two arms (HR = 1.10, 95% CI 0.87-1.39, where HR > 1 implies a survival benefit to D1 surgery). Survival based on death from gastric cancer as the event was similar in the D1 and D2 groups (HR = 1.05, 95% CI 0.79-1.39) as was recurrence-free survival (HR = 1.03, 95% CI 0.82-1.29). In a multivariate analysis, clinical stages II and III, old age, male sex and removal of spleen and pancreas were independently associated with poor survival. These findings indicate that the classical Japanese D2 resection offers no survival advantage over D1 surgery. However, the possibility that D2 resection without pancreatico-splenectomy may be better than standard D1 resection cannot be dismissed by the results of this trial.  (+info)

How much better can we predict dialysis patient survival using clinical data? (8/3293)

OBJECTIVE: To use three approaches to compare dialysis survival prediction based on variables included in the Standardized Mortality Ratio (SMR) with prediction based on a clinically enriched set of variables. DATA SOURCE: The United States Renal Data System Case Mix Severity data set containing demographic, clinical, functional, nutritional, and treatment details about a random sample of 4,797 adult dialysis patients from 291 treatment units, incident to dialysis in 1986 and 1987. STUDY DESIGN: This observational study uses baseline patient characteristics in two proportional hazards survival models: the BASE model incorporates age, race, sex, and cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD); the FULL model includes these and additional clinical information. We compare each model's performance using (1) the c-index, (2) observed median survival in strata of predicted risk, and (3) predicted survival for patients with different characteristics. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The FULL model's c-index (0.709, 0.708-0.711) is significantly higher than that of the BASE model (0.675, 0.675-0.676), indicating better discrimination. Second, the sickest patients identified by the FULL model were in fact sicker than those identified as sickest by the BASE model, with observed median survival of 451 days versus 524. Third, survival predictions for sickest patients using the FULL model are one-third shorter than those based on the BASE model. CONCLUSIONS: The model with more detailed clinical information predicted survival better than the BASE model. Clinical characteristics enable more accurate predictions, particularly for the sickest patients. Thus, clinical characteristics should be considered when making quality assessments for dialysis patients.  (+info)

PURPOSE The adolescent and young adult (AYA) population is a growing group of survivors, exceeding more than 600,000, at high risk for late effects of cancer-directed therapy. While many guidelines exist for cancer survivorship care, choosing which to use for an AYA cancer survivor is challenging, yet vital, to ensure comprehensive follow-up care. METHODS Survivorship care plans (SCPs), including treatment summaries (TS) and follow-up care plans, were created for three clinical vignettes (acute lymphoblastic leukemia, osteosarcoma, and Hodgkin lymphoma). Four sets of guidelines were used, including the Childrens Oncology Group Long-Term Follow-Up Guidelines (COG LTFU), National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Guidelines for Age- Related Recommendations: AYA Oncology (NCCN-AYA), NCCN Guidelines for Treatment of Cancer by Site (NCCN-Site), and NCCN Guidelines for Supportive Care: Survivorship (NCCN-Survivorship) and NCCN supplemental cancer screening guidelines. The follow-up care plans were
Cancer survivorship research includes the study of physical, psychosocial, and economic consequences of cancer diagnosis and treatment among pediatric and adult cancer survivors. Historically, the majority of cancer survivorship studies were from the United States, but survivorship issues are increasingly being addressed in other developed countries. Cross-cultural studies remain, however, scarce. The degree to which knowledge attained may or may not be transferred across cultures, countries, or regions is not known. Some important challenges for comparative research are therefore discussed in a cross-cultural perspective. Several substantive and methodological challenges that complicate the execution of cross-cultural cancer survivorship research are presented with examples and discussed to facilitate comparative research efforts in the establishment of new survivorship cohorts and in the planning and implementation of survivorship studies. Comparative research is one key to understanding the nature of

OBJECTIVES:We aimed to determine cancer-related medical care costs for long term survivors of colorectal cancer.METHODS:The SEER-Medicare database was used to measure lifetime cancer-attributable costs of care for those with colorectal cancer surviving at least 5 yr versus age- and gender-matched controls. Costs were directly estimated, stratified by age at diagnosis and stage at diagnosis, for years 6â€11 after diagnosis and then modeled to estimate lifetime costs. Cost differences between cancer cases and controls were compared to expected costs based on published guidelines for postcancer surveillance.RESULTS:Lifetime medical costs for long term survivors (future years not discounted) were up to $19,516 higher than control costs, and were highest for younger age groups and those with early-stage disease. Excess costs for cancer survivors exceeded expected surveillance costs by $2,223â€8,822 for years 6â€10 from the date of initial diagnosis.CONCLUSIONS:Cancer-attributable medical ...
Obesity is an epidemic and the majority of breast cancer survivors are overweight or obese. The American Cancer Society has called for weight loss treatment to be standard of care for overweight women with breast cancer. During therapy women with breast cancer often gain weight and lose lean muscle mass. Overweight breast cancer survivors are more likely to have their cancer come back. The reason why overweight breast cancer survivors are more likely to re-occur has not been well studied, but changes in how insulin works may contribute. Overweight survivors are also at risk for the other chronic diseases associated with obesity. Fortunately, weight losses of as little as 5-7% of baseline body weight can improve risk of chronic disease. An effective behaviorally-based, lifestyle intervention delivered via the internet has been developed at the University of Vermont. This successful intervention has not been tested among breast cancer survivors. Given that women tend to lose muscle mass during ...

Whereas adult survivors of childhood cancer from the CCSS report more symptoms of psychological distress compared with siblings, both groups report better psychological adjustment than that of population norms. Survivors report poorer HRQOL in physical and social but not in mental health domains compared with siblings. Compared with U.S. population norms, survivors have increased risk of poor HRQOL in physical and social domains, with the largest effect size in vitality. Compared with population norms, siblings fare better in physical function and general health, and both survivors and siblings report better mental health than does the general population, as well as high levels of current life satisfaction. Except for CNS tumor survivors, both groups also expect high life satisfaction in 5 years. Our findings add to information from previous CCSS estimates of health status (24) and chronic disease (27). Despite their increased risk for poor health status, and the fact that ,70% of childhood ...
Due to improved detection and treatment, survival rates among breast cancer survivors have increased. However, breast cancer survivors may experience cognitive impairment (CI) following treatment, which has been reported by breast cancer survivors up to 10 years after chemotherapy (CT). There is limited evidence on whether stress-reducing interventions improve CI in breast cancer survivors. The primary goal of this application is to establish the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Breast Cancer (MBSR(BC)) program as an effective treatment for CI in breast cancer survivors. Specifically this study aim to (1) evaluate the extent to which MBSR(BC) compared to the Breast Cancer-Education Support (BCES) program or Usual Care (UC) improves cognitive functioning among breast cancer survivors off treatment; (2) determine if improvements in cognitive functioning achieved from MBSR(BC) are mediated through increased mindfulness and decreased rumination and stress; (3) evaluate genetic variants as ...
The number of cancer survivors in the western world is steadily increasing [1]. This is owing in part to high incidence rates, and in part to advancements in detection and treatment which have led to improved survival outcomes. In Australia, survivors experience some of the highest survival rates in the world. The majority of those diagnosed (67%) now have a good chance of surviving for the next 5 years relative to their peers without a cancer history [2]. While increases in survival are duly welcomed, many survivors will suffer from adverse side effects well beyond the treatment phase, including fatigue, reduced physical functioning, premature aging, and mood disturbances [3, 4]. These issues have a significant and lasting impact on quality of life [5-7]. In addition, cancer survivors are at an increased risk of morbidity and premature death from cancer and non-cancer causes compared to age matched controls [8]. As such, cancer is increasingly recognised as a chronic disease, and cancer ...
Survivors of the 10 most common cancers diagnosed in adolescents and young adults (AYAs) are at considerably higher risk for diseases.
Identification of factors associated with work disability in cancer survivors on long term sick leave may support these survivors in choosing effective measures to facilitate vocational rehabilitation and return to work. Therefore, this study aims to disclose factors associated with work disability in cancer survivors at 24 months of sick leave. A cross sectional study was conducted. The study population consisted of employed sick-listed cancer survivors, aged between 18 and 64 years. They received a questionnaire at 24-month sick leave, the maximum period of sick leave allowed by Dutch social security legislation. Data were linked with the outcome of work disability assessment, as performed by the Dutch social security agency. A hierarchical multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify factors associated with work disability. Data of 351 valid cases were analysed. The multivariate analysis showed that, for cancer survivors at 24-month sick leave, Dutch nationality, higher
EAST MEADOW, NY -Eisenhower Park was filled with the laughter of more than 700 pediatric cancer survivors and family members who gathered for the inaugural Les Nelkin Pediatric Cancer Survivors Day hosted by Cohen Childrens Medical Center (CCMC) of New York. They cheered as the events keynote speaker, New York Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich talked about his own successful battle with Ewings sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.. When he was diagnosed at age 21 before starting his senior year at Boston College, Mr. Herzlich was told that he would not be able to play football again -- and may never run again. I decided that I wasnt going to let cancer beat me, Mr. Herzlich told fellow survivors. His dream of playing football pushed him to not just be a survivor, but to be a thriver. A three-year cancer survivor who won a Super Bowl ring with the Giants in February during his rookie season, he encouraged attendees to fulfill your dreams.. The event, made possible by the support of Ruth ...

Breast, colorectal, and prostate cancer survivors are at increased risk for late and long-term effects post-treatment. The post-treatment phase of care is often poorly coordinated and survivors navigate follow-up care with minimal information or guidance from their healthcare team. This manuscript describes the Extended Cancer Education for Longer-term Survivors (EXCELS) in Primary Care protocol. EXCELS is a randomized controlled trial to test the efficacy of patient-level self-management educational strategies on adherence to preventative health service use and cancer survivorship follow-up guidelines. The EXCELS trial compares four conditions: (1) EXCELS-website (e.g., a mobile-optimized technology platform); (2) EXCELS-health coaching; (3) EXCELS-website and health coaching; and (4) a print booklet. Approximately 480 breast, colorectal, and prostate survivors will be recruited through the New Jersey Primary Care Research Network (NJPCRN) and New Jersey State Cancer Registry (NJSCR). Eligible

Materials and Methods: From 4,221 survivors exposed to CRT in the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study, a diagnosis of meningioma and onset of neurologic sequelae were ascertained. Cox proportional hazards regression was used to estimate hazard ratios (HR) and 95% CIs to evaluate the factors associated with neurologic sequelae after subsequent meningioma. Results: One hundred ninety-nine meningiomas were identified among 169 participants. The median interval from primary ...
Purpose To compare the probability of a first live birth, age at time of birth, and time between diagnosis/referent date and birth between childhood and adolescent cancer survivors and an age-matched comparison group. Materials and Methods A total of 1,206 survivors was included in the study, together with 2,412 age-matched individuals from the general population. A Cox proportional hazards model was used to investigate first live birth after diagnosis/referent date. Data were stratified by sex, age at diagnosis, and diagnostic era (ie, diagnosis before 1988 v in 1988 or later). Results Overall, the probability of having a first live birth (hazard ratio [HR]) was significantly lower; men had lower HRs than women (HR, 0.65 v 0.79). There were no significant differences in the probability of having a first live birth among women diagnosed during adolescence (HR, 0.89), but the HR was lower among women with childhood cancers (HR, 0.47). Among male survivors, the situation was the opposite; men ...
Well, although I am not exactly a long term survivor (TT 2009) I can speak to the EBR aspect. I actually had no lymph node involvement but my tumor had been large-ish and was not totally encapsulated. It had adhered to my trachea and though the surgeon scraped what he could, the docs told me that my RAI dose was unlikely to effectively penetrate the tissue of the trachea so EBR was recommended. I sought about five second opinions and ended up getting it done (fall 2009). Not an easy thing to do but I can tell you that two years later my neck is totally clear. The radiation oncologist focused on my trachea but also included a pattern to cover the lymph nodes for good measure. My beam pattern was all below the jawline - above it you start to have potential issues with salivary glands but it can be done. I have had no long term ill effects thus far - oddly enough it is sort of a distant memory. Radiation to the head requires a mask that attaches to the table to ensure you remain in position. ...
Children born to survivors of childhood cancer do not appear to have an increased risk of birth defects. These results were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.. Cancer treatment can have a range of reproductive effects. Treatment may result in a loss or reduction of fertility in men and women, and treatments that damage the uterus-such as radiation to the pelvis-may increase a womans risk of miscarriage or pre-term delivery. Studies of birth defects among children conceived after a parents cancer treatment have generally been reassuring, but not all of the studies considered the type and dose of treatment received by the parent.. To explore further the risk of birth defects among children born to cancer survivors, researchers evaluated information from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS). The childhood cancer survivors had been diagnosed with cancer before the age of 21. Information was available about almost 4,700 children born to these survivors. The children had been born ...

PURPOSE: Long-term cancer survivors may develop psychological late effects. The aim of the present study was to determine prevalence of high level of stress in testicular cancer survivors (TCS) compared with the general population and prevalence of high level of stress among TCS stratified by type of treatment (surveillance, bleomycin, etoposide and cisplatin (BEP), or abdominal radiotherapy (RT)).. METHODS: In this large, nationwide and population-based, cross-sectional study, a total of 2252 TCS filled in a questionnaire between 2014-2016 covering psychological stress (Perceived Stress Scale (PSS)), sociodemographic factors, and physical health variables. Results were compared with a reference population. The reference population consisted of 61,927 men without prior or present cancer and sampled at random from the central population. High level of stress was defined as a PSS score ≥ 16, equivalent to the highest scoring quintile in the reference population. Logistic regression models ...

Endometrial cancer survivors are at an increased risk of poor quality of life outcomes. Physical activity is positively associated with general quality of life in this population, however, little is known about how changes in physical activity may be associated with changes in specific aspects of quality of life. The aim of this secondary data analysis was to explore the relationships between change in physical activity and change in physical, mental, social, and other aspects of quality of life in endometrial cancer survivors receiving a physical activity intervention. Endometrial cancer survivors (N = 100) participated in a telephone-based physical activity intervention for six months. At baseline and post-intervention we measured physical activity via accelerometry and ecological momentary assessment, and quality of life via the Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), the Quality of Life of Adult Cancer Survivors instrument, the Brief Symptom Inventory, the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, and the Perceived

In patients with high grade glioma, little is known regarding existence of naturally occurring adaptive T cell reactivity against glioma-associated antigens (GAAs). In this report, we characterized GAA-specific CD8+ T cells and innate immune cells in a patient who has survived with anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) for over 12 years without recurrence. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) derived from the long term survivor with AA were evaluated for the frequency, cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activity and differentiation status of CD8+ cells recognizing GAA-derived epitopes as well as relative numbers of other immune cell subsets. This patients AA tissue was evaluated for expression of two GAAs EphA2 and interleukin-13 receptor α2 subunit (IL-13Rα2) by immunohistochemistry. The patients tumor expressed both EphA2 and IL-13Rα2, and in vitro stimulated PBMC demonstrated superior EphA2883-891 and IL-13Rα2345-353-specific CTL reactivity compared to PBMC samples from two other patients with

Objectives: The primary objectives were (1) to estimate the prevalence of meeting physical activity (PA) guidelines among ovarian cancer survivors in the post-treatment period and (2) to identify the determinants of meeting PA guidelines in this study population. The secondary objective was to explore the association between PA and patient reported outcomes (PROs), specifically health-related quality of life (HRQOL), anxiety and depression symptoms. Methods: The Lifestyle Habits and the PRognosis of Ovarian Cancer in Quebec (HPROQ) Study is a prospective cohort study that was conducted in Montreal (2015-2018). For this thesis, a cross-sectional study was conducted on the baseline cohort. 112 ovarian cancer survivors were interviewed 6 months after treatment completion. Modified Poisson regression was used to estimate the prevalence ratio (PRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) to describe the association between patient characteristics and the prevalence of meeting PA guidelines. Multivariable ...
Washington, 25 October 2006 By Lisa Pickoff-White People who were cured of cancer as children have unusually high rates of heart disease, second cancers, infertility, damaged joints, learning disabilities, and other problems later in life, according to a new study of more than 10,000 survivors. The most severe disabilities occurred in those who survived Hodgkins disease or cancers of the bones or central nervous system, and their incidence increased over time. Almost 80 percent of children and teenagers who have cancer now survive for at least five years or are cured completely. Currently, there are about 0,000 long-term childhood cancer survivors in the United States. Although the study -- published in the Oct. 12 New England Journal of Medicine -- did not include anyone who started treatment after 1986, many of the medications are the same and radiation is still widely used to treat some cancers. A number of National Academies reports deal with surviving cancer. Childhood Cancer Survivorship: ...
The number of cancer survivors is increasing. Knowledge gaps exist regarding the health of survivors and their use of services, particularly survivors with long-term effects of the disease and treatment, including late effects. This PhD study comprised (i) a systematic review of health service utilisation by cancer survivors; (ii) a population-based comparative survey of the health status and service utilisation of cancer survivors and a matched General Practice population; (iii) an overview of reviews of late effects; (iv) a comparative analysis of cancer survivors with self-reported late effects and survivors without late effects in terms of their health status and services utilisation patterns and; (v) a qualitative study of the narrative of cancer survivors with late • effects. The health service utilisation review identified that increasing age was associated with less care and increased hospitalisations. Improved care receipt was dependent on type and frequency of physician contact which ...
The guideline was developed in response to the need for guidance on how best to care for the growing number of head and neck cancer survivors who potentially face both acute and chronic disability, write the authors. Head and neck cancer survivors should be provided with timely and appropriate support and referral to address physical, psychosocial, and practical effects after treatment. The guideline is the fourth in a series of cancer survivorship care guidelines from the American Cancer Society to provide primary care and other clinicians who care for cancer survivors with clinical follow-up care recommendations on how to provide comprehensive cancer survivorship care to adult posttreatment cancer survivors as they transition from treatment to long-term survivorship, with a goal of improving care and health and quality of life of cancer survivors. The American Cancer Society has survivorship guidelines to address the cancer survivorship care needs of survivors of prostate, colorectal, and ...
BACKGROUND: Reorganisation of clinical follow-up care in England was proposed by the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative (NCSI), based on cancer type and treatment, ranging from Level 1 (supported self-management) to Level 3 (consultant-led care). The objective of this study was to provide an investigation of the risks of serious adverse health-outcomes associated with NCSI Levels of clinical care using a large population-based cohort of childhood cancer survivors. METHODS: The British Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (BCCSS) was used to investigate risks of specific causes of death, subsequent primary neoplasms (SPNs) and non-fatal non-neoplastic outcomes by NCSI Level. RESULTS: Cumulative (excess) risks of specified adverse outcomes by 45 years from diagnosis among non-leukaemic survivors assigned to NCSI Levels 1, 2 and 3 were for: SPNs-5% (two-fold expected), 14% (four-fold expected) and 21% (eight-fold expected); non-neoplastic death-2% (two-fold expected), 4% (three-fold expected) and 8% (seven
Physical activity and other healthy behaviors can hasten recovery from the immediate side effects of cancer treatment, prevent long-term effects, and may reduce the risk of recurrence and increase sur-vival, says a first-ever report by the American Cancer Society (ACS) that tracks the growing population of cancer survivors in the United States. Developed in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute, the report estimates that there are 13.7 million cancer survivors alive in the United States today. The number will grow to almost 18 million by 2022. The 3 most common cancers among male survivors are prostate cancer (43%), colon and rectal cancer (9%), and melanoma skin cancer (7%). The 3 most common cancers among female survivors are breast cancer (41%), uterine cancer (8%), and colon and rectal cancer (8%). Those percentages are expected to stay roughly the same through 2022.. The report also finds that 45% of cancer survivors are 70 years old or older, and only 5% are younger than 40. The ...
Nearly, one-fifth of childhood cancer survivors (CCSs) smoke cigars. provision of eight weeks of NRT. The participant initiated treatment enables the participant to contact the QL at their comfort, but contains the same six phone classes and provision of 14 days of NRT. Both groups will receive two follow-up phone calls at 8 weeks and 1 year after enrollment to assess their smoking status. The primary outcome measure is cotinine-validated self-reported smoking abstinence at 1-year follow-up. Results from this study will provide the first evidence about the efficacy of intensive QL cessation intervention in this high risk population. Such evidence can lead as well to the dissemination of this intervention to other medically compromised Crassicauline A IC50 populations.

A cancer survivor is a person with cancer of any type who is still living. Whether a person becomes a survivor at the time of diagnosis or after completing treatment, whether people who are actively dying are considered survivors, and whether healthy friends and family members of the cancer patient are also considered survivors, varies from group to group. Some people who have been diagnosed with cancer reject the term survivor or disagree with some definitions of it. How many people are cancer survivors depends on the definition used. Currently nearly 65% of adults diagnosed with cancer in the developed world are expected to live at least five years after the cancer is discovered. In the U.S. for example, about 11 million Americans alive today-one in 30 people-are either currently undergoing treatment for cancer or have done so in the past. Many cancer survivors describe the process of living with and beating cancer as a life-changing experience. It is not uncommon for survivors to use the ...
Breast cancer survivors, especially those treated with chemotherapy, are likely to gain weight at a higher rate than women who are cancer-free, says a new research. Data from earlier studies suggest that breast cancer survivors who gain weight may have a higher risk of having their cancer return, researchers said. Our study suggests that chemotherapy may be one of the factors contributing to weight gain among survivors, said Kala Visvanathan, associate professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the US.. The results of the study that involved 303 breast cancer survivors and 307 cancer-free women appeared online in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. The researchers found that over the course of four years, survivors gained significantly more weight - 3.6 pounds (1.6 kg) on average - than cancer-free women.. Among 180 survivors diagnosed with cancer during the last five years of the study period, 37 (21 percent) gained at least 11 ...
Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity is related to improved subjective memory in breast cancer survivors, who often complain about memory problems, reports a new study. It appears the physical activity alleviates stress and benefits women psychologically, which in turn aids their memory. Memory problems appear to be related to the high stress load cancer survivors experience, and may not be specific to chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
The objectives of the study were to explore the context and reasons for medical hospitalizations among prostate cancer survivors and to study their relationship with obesity and the type of prostate cancer treatment.

KCPW News) More people are surviving cancer in Utah, but new data released by the Utah Department of Health show cancer survivors are experiencing more chronic diseases than those without cancer. Utah Cancer Control Program Epidemiologist Meghan Balough says the data comes from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey, which is part of a five-year plan to combat cancer in Utah.. By knowing that they have a higher burden of chronic diseases as well as quality of life issues, like they are more likely to be smokers, we can actually tailor our programs to assess their needs and do something about it, she explains.. The survey, done by the Utah Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tracked cancer survivor treatment and health insurance coverage, as well as their health behaviors and quality of life. Balough says the data collected found that more cancer survivors suffer from diseases like asthma and hypertension than those without cancer, and ...

Long-term studies have shown that testicular cancer survivors who received radiation and chemotherapy have an increased risk of cardiovascular problems and death compared to the general population, and that chemotherapy for the disease may also pose a higher risk of developing metabolic syndromes. Patients may reduce their chances of developing of these problems by adopting healthy diet and exercise habits, refraining from smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption, but the new study shows that many testicular cancer survivors are, instead, placing themselves at even greater risk.. The team studied 189 patients who were diagnosed with testicular cancer between 1990 and 2007 and recruited through the Pennsylvania Cancer Registry. Patients, who were, on average, 44 years old and 6.8 years post-diagnosis, completed surveys about various health habits. Almost 25 percent of patients surveyed reported current tobacco use, and 35 percent reported risky alcohol use, which the researchers defined as 14 ...

Background: Although gonadal toxicity has been reported, no data are available on recovery of gonadal function in very long-term survivors of childhood cancer. Inhibin B is a novel reliable serum marker which has been shown to be of value in childhood cancer survivor studies to identify risk groups for impaired gonadal function, but consecutive long-term follow-up studies using serum inhibin B as a marker are not available. Objective: To evaluate possible recovery of gonadal dysfunction over time in adult male survivors of childhood cancer. Methods: In this retrospective study, adult male long-term childhood cancer survivors (n = 201) who visited our outpatient late effects clinic were included and we used inhibin B as a surrogate marker for gonadal function. Results: Median age at diagnosis was 5.9 years (range 0.0-17.5) and discontinuation of treatment was reached at a median age of 8.2 years (range 0.0-20.8). Inhibin B levels were first measured after a median follow-up time of 15.7 years ...

Results: Data suggest that 64% of the participants were identified as CAM users; dietary supplements were the most common ...
Many testicular cancer survivors experience hearing loss after cisplatin-based chemotherapy, according to researchers at Indiana University.
A growing body of evidence suggests that breast cancer recurrence risk is linked to lifestyle behaviors. This study examined correlations between breast cancer recurrence, risk reduction beliefs, and related behaviors among African American breast cancer survivors (AA BCSs). Study participants included 191 AA BCSs, mean age = 56.3 years, who completed a lifestyle assessment tool. Most respondents believed that being overweight (52.7%), lack of physical activity (48.7%), and a high fat diet (63.2%) are associated with breast cancer recurrence. Over 65% considered themselves overweight; one third (33.5%) agreed that losing weight could prevent recurrence, 33.0% disagreed, while the remaining 33.5% did not know; and nearly half (47.9%) believed that recurrence could be prevented by increasing physical activity. Almost 90% survivors with BMI < 25 Kg/M2 reported no recurrence compared to 75.7% with BMI ≥ 25 Kg/M2 (p = 0.06); nearly all of the women (99.2%) answered

For the study, the investigators merged the California Cancer Registry with the Office of Statewide Planning and Development database, which captures inpatient data. They then identified 139,743 patients with colorectal cancer diagnosed between 2000 and 2011 and ascertained causes of death from death codes, comparing non-long-term survivors (who died within 5 years of diagnosis) and long-term survivors (who lived past that landmark).. Median follow-up for the entire cohort was 65 months, and the 5-year overall survival rate was 59.1%, Dr. Lewis reported.. Key Findings. Analysis of the cumulative number of deaths per 1,000 patients during follow-up showed that colorectal cancer ranked first as a cause of death, followed by cardiovascular disease, second primary cancers, neurologic disease, and pulmonary disease. Colorectal cancer deaths plateau over time, and then other causes of death become more important as patients survive longer, he noted.. When relative causes of death were -analyzed, ...
PURPOSE We developed three absolute risk models for second primary thyroid cancer to assist with long-term clinical monitoring of childhood cancer survivors. PATIENTS AND METHODS We used data from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) and two nested case-control studies (Nordic CCSS; Late Effects Study Group). Model M1 included self-reported risk factors, model M2 added basic radiation and chemotherapy treatment information abstracted from medical records, and model M3 refined M2 by incorporating reconstructed radiation absorbed dose to the thyroid. All models were validated in an independent cohort of French childhood cancer survivors. Results M1 included birth year, initial cancer type, age at diagnosis, sex, and past thyroid nodule diagnosis. M2 added radiation (yes/no), radiation to the neck (yes/no), and alkylating agent (yes/no). Past thyroid nodule was consistently the strongest risk factor (M1 relative risk [RR], 10.8; M2 RR, 6.8; M3 RR, 8.2). In the validation cohort, 20-year ...
Purpose While exercise has been shown to be beneficial in improving health-related quality of life (HRQOL) among cancer survivors, evidence is limited on the independent role of sedentary behavior. We examined how objectively measured sedentary time was associated with HRQOL among long-term cancer survivors. Methods This cross-sectional study included 54 cancer survivors, on average 3.4 years postdiagnosis, who were enrolled into an exercise trial designed to improve cognitive function. At baseline, we measured sedentary time and moderate-vigorous intensity physical activity with the ActivPal, cardiorespiratory fitness with treadmill testing, and self-reported HRQOL with an established scale (SF-36). In multivariate models, we regressed HRQOL on sedentary time (percent of waking time spent sitting and lying). Results Survivors with higher sedentary time had significantly poorer physical functioning (β = −0.50, p = 0.028), general health (β = −0.75, ptrend = 0.004), and physical summary scores
The psychological profile of breast cancer survivors are influenced by whether or not they have practiced yoga before. It was observed that the yoga group had significantly lower stress, anxiety, depression, perceived stress, health impairment and better physical, psychological, social, and functional QoL, compared to yoga naïve group. In breast cancer survivors, annual income also predicted depression and state anxiety significantly. This would indicate the role of financial difficulties affecting psychological stress and coping in survivorship scenario.. The participants in the yoga group had lower psychological disturbances, similar to earlier studies showing benefit finding with various forms of yoga interventions in cancer patients.[29] The magnitude of difference in distress and mood states between yoga versus yoga naïve survivors could be attributed to milder levels of distress, compared to those seen during treatment. Consequently, these milder levels could have created a floor effect. ...

Adding aromatase inhibitors (AIs) to adjuvant treatment of postmenopausal women with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer significantly reduces cancer recurrence. A common side effect of AIs is noninflammatory joint pain and stiffness (arthralgia) similar to arthritis symptoms. An evidence-based walking program developed by the Arthritis Foundation - Walk With Ease (WWE) - reduces arthritis-related joint symptoms. We hypothesized that WWE may also reduce AI-associated arthralgia. However, the potential for different barriers and facilitators to physical activity for these 2 patient populations suggested a need to adapt WWE before testing it with breast cancer survivors. We conducted qualitative research with 46 breast cancer survivors to explore program modification and inform the development of materials for an adapted program (Walk With Ease-Breast Cancer). Our process parallels the National Cancer Institutes Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) guidelines for adapting ...
Lymphedema is a potentially debilitating condition that occurs among breast cancer survivors. This study examines the incidence of self-reported lymphedema, timing of lymphedema onset, and associations between sociodemographic, clinical and lifestyle factors and lymphedema risk across racial-ethnic groups using data from a multicenter, multiethnic prospective cohort study of breast cancer survivors, the Health, Eating, Activity and Lifestyle Study. A total of 666 women diagnosed with breast cancer staged as in situ, localized or regional disease at ages 35 to 64 years were recruited through the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registries in New Mexico (non-Hispanic white and Hispanic white), Los Angeles County (black), and Western Washington (non-Hispanic white) and followed for a median of 10.2 years. We evaluated sociodemographic factors, breast cancer- and treatment-related factors, comorbidities, body mass index (BMI), hormonal factors, and lifestyle factors in relation to self-reported
Purpose More than 66% of the 200,000 newly diagnosed annual breast cancers in the US occurs in women over 55 years. Treatment advances result in excellent survival, yet older breast cancer survivors with co-morbidity may live longer, but not better after cancer. Decline in physical function, increased social isolation, and diminished economic resources increase vulnerability among older women. Rural women represent an underserved population. The purpose is to examine associations between comorbidity and predictors of health status among older rural breast cancer survivors. Methods Baseline data of 331 BCS age 55-90 years enrolled in the Rural Breast Cancer Survivors Study. Four surveys were used for data collection. Self-reported prescription medications were used as proxy for co-morbidity. Bivariate tests of association and multivariable recursive partitioning techniques were used for analysis. Results Mean number of prescription medication categories reported was 3.68 (SD = 2.3; range = 0- ...
Almost one-third of cancer survivors experience financial hardships as a result of their diagnosis and/or treatment, according to a new study by researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University.
The evidence on the agreement between self-reported health resource use and administrative records is mixed and no gold standard exists. The objective of this study was to assess self-reported general practitioner (GP) and specialist doctor visits, as well as medication use via telephone interview against national insurance administrative data for colorectal cancer survivors. In a sample of 76 adults recently diagnosed with colorectal cancer, data was abstracted from telephone survey items on GP visits, specialist visits and medication use over the previous six months and compared with data on the same individuals from administrative data. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) were used to assess the reliability of frequency of visits and kappa statistics were derived for four broad categories of medicines used for gastrointestinal conditions, cardiovascular disease, psychological conditions and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Logistic regression was undertaken to assess factors associated

Student loans arent the only reason young adults end up in debt.. One of the largest-ever studies of work-related risks in young adult cancer survivors finds that of 872 survivors, 14.4 percent borrowed more than $10,000 and 1.5 percent said they or their family had filed for bankruptcy as a direct result of illness or treatment.. The findings were published in the journal Cancer.. Fifty-eight percent of respondents said that cancer or treatment interfered with physical demands of their job, and 54 percent said that cancer or treatment interfered with their ability to perform mental tasks related to their job.. The study also showed that not all cancers and not all treatments have the same effects on young survivors financial outcomes.. For example, those exposed to chemotherapy were more than three times as likely to borrow over $10,000, and more than three times as likely to report job-related mental impairment than survivors not treated with chemotherapy.. This project combined the ...

THURSDAY, March 14, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Many survivors of the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa have ongoing health problems, a new study finds.. More than 28,000 people were infected and more than 11,000 died in the outbreak.. Researchers compared 966 Ebola survivors from Liberia with 2,350 close contacts and sexual partners. They found that survivors were more likely to have increased urinary frequency, headaches, fatigue, as well as neurological and musculoskeletal problems.. Memory loss was reported in 30 percent of survivors, compared to fewer than 6 percent of their contacts. Survivors reported twice as much joint and muscle pain.. While 25 percent of survivors have uveitis -- an inflammation of the eye that can lead to blindness -- it was also found in 12 percent of the contacts. Researchers said that suggests Ebola may not be its cause.. They also discovered that Ebola virus genetic material can be found intermittently in the semen of male survivors for more than three ...
The American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) have developed new guidelines on breast cancer survivorship care. The guidelines are to help primary care doctors identify and manage possible physical and psychosocial long-term and late side effects of cancer and its treatment, as well as other aspects of post-treatment survivorship care for adults whove been diagnosed with cancer. The guidelines were published on Dec. 7, 2015 in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians. Read American Cancer Society/American Society of Clinical Oncology Breast Cancer Survivorship Care Guideline. ASCO is a national organization of oncologists and other cancer care providers. ASCO guidelines give doctors recommendations for treatments and testing that are supported by much credible research and experience. These breast cancer guidelines are the third in a continuing series of survivorship. The earlier guidelines addressed the needs of prostate and colorectal cancer survivors. To ...
THURSDAY, Jan. 24, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Breast cancer survivors struggling with common, lasting symptoms stemming from their treatments may find relief in self-applied acupressure, new research suggests.. For survivors with fatigue, self-acupressure improved related issues such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression and sleep difficulties more than usual care, the scientists found.. We know breast cancer survivors have a lot of fatigue and co-occurring symptoms, two to four times more than [healthy peers] of the same age, so its a big problem, said study author Dr. Suzanna Zick. Shes a research associate professor of family medicine at University of Michigan.. We think [self-applied acupressure] actually changes neurochemicals in the brain, she added. Women do not have a problem learning this technique at all.. A traditional Chinese medicine technique based on the same principles as acupuncture, acupressure applies pressure, instead of needles, to certain key points on the body ...
The results of a recent new study find that younger survivors of thyroid cancer are at increased risk for osteoporosis, high blood pressure and heart disease. Thyroid cancer is the fifth most common cancer in women.. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ that is below the Adams apple in the front part of the neck. It produces, stores, and releases hormones that regulate vital body functions.. Thyroid cancer happens when cells in the thyroid grow out of control. There are two main types of cells in the thyroid: follicular cells and C cells. Follicular cells use iodine from the blood that makes hormones which help regulate metabolism. C cells make calcitonin, a hormone that helps control how the body uses calcium. Less common cells in the thyroid are lymphocytes (immune system cells) and stromal cells.. Different cancers develop from each kind of cell, with each having a different level of disease and treatment. In 2016, the ACS estimates 62,450 new cases of thyroid cancer and 1,980 ...

This case series serves to illustrate several points: hip fractures in breast cancer survivors present at an earlier age than in postmenopausal osteoporosis, result in clinically important functional decline, and occur at higher BMD than in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis.. First hip fractures in breast cancer survivors may present at an earlier age than in postmenopausal osteoporosis where hip fractures occur in the 8-decade of life (mean age 74 years). Notably, breast cancer survivors can present with hip fractures as early as the sixth decade of life.. Second, hip fractures are associated with functional decline among middle-aged breast cancer patients. Greater awareness of the functional and quality of life impact of CTIBL fracture complications in cancer survivors is necessary. Hip fractures in older women account for considerable functional impairment, morbidity, hospitalizations, and increased mortality (7-10). Osteoporotic fractures such as wrist, vertebral and hip fractures are ...

Setting: A LISTSERV announcement posted on the SHARE Web site and purposeful recruitment of women known to be diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. Participants: 15 women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. Methodologic Approach: Constant comparative analysis. Main Research Variables: Breast cancer survivorship. Findings: The core variable identified was Reclaiming Life on Ones Own Terms. The perceptions and experiences of the participants revealed overall that the diagnosis of breast cancer was a turning point in life and the stimulus for change. That was followed by the recognition of breast cancer as now being a part of life, ...
Survivors of central nervous system (CNS) tumours are particularly vulnerable to tumour- and treatment-related disability. We present the incidence of specific and overall functional and health-related late effects in a national adult survivor cohort. Diagnostic subgroups at particular risk for persistent sequels are identified. Data collection targeted 708 eligible ,18 years old survivors, 708 parent proxies and 1000 general population controls. Functional disability including sensory and cognitive impairment, emotional status and pain was assessed using the Health Utilities Index Mark 2/3 (HUI2/3). Survivors and controls, and diagnostic subgroups were contrasted to identify the general and relative risk for late effects by sub-diagnosis. Survivors had persistent late effects in sensation, mobility, self-care and cognition. Deficits in these domains indicated clinically important disability in overall health, although indices of emotion and pain were unaffected compared to controls. Late ...
Background: Well-designed studies on lifestyle and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in colorectal cancer survivors based on a bio-psychosocial instead of a traditional biomedical approach are warranted. We report on the applicability of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as useful bio-psychosocial framework to improve research on how lifestyle influences colorectal cancer survivors HRQoL, using the Energy for life after ColoRectal cancer (EnCoRe) study as an example. Methods: The ICF was used to develop a conceptual model for studying lifestyle and colorectal cancer survivors HRQoL, by identifying relevant factors from literature and mapping them within the ICF. Subsequently, this model was used for selection of measurement instruments and biomarkers. By linking meaningful concepts within selected measures to the ICF, we could assess the ICF coverage of our developed conceptual model. Results: Within selected measures, 450 meaningful concepts ...
View more ,Clergy-perpetrated sexual abuse (CPSA) during childhood represents a tragic betrayal of trust that inflicts damage on the survivor, the family, and the parish community. Survivors often report CPSA has a disturbing impact on their self-identity. Despite intense media coverage of clergy abuse globally in the Catholic Church (and other faith communities) over several decades, relatively few empirical studies have been conducted with survivors. Beyond clinical observations and advocacy group reports, very little is known about survivors perceptions of how the abuse impacted their long-term self-identity. Using data collected during the 2010 Health and Well-Being Survey, this qualitative analysis represents one of the first large-scale studies with a non-clinical sample of adult male survivors of CPSA from childhood (N = 205). The negative effects of the sexual abuse on participants were expressed across six domains of self-identity: (a) total self, (b) psychological self, (c) relational ...

A new study indicates that cancer patients and survivors have a ready weapon against fatigue and chemo brain: a brisk walk.. Researchers at the University of Illinois, along with collaborators at Digital Artefacts in Iowa City, Iowa, and Northeastern University in Boston, looked at the association between physical activity, fatigue and performance on cognitive tasks in nearly 300 breast cancer survivors.. The data suggest that being more physically active could reduce two of the more commonly reported symptoms in breast cancer survivors: fatigue and cognitive impairment, said study leader Edward McAuley, a professor of kinesiology and community health at Illinois. Most people think, If I exercise, Ill become tired. In our study, exercise actually was associated with reduced fatigue, which in turn was associated with better cognitive function.. Cognitive impairment, such as memory problems or shortened attention spans, is a common complaint among cancer patients and survivors, and is ...
Health care transition (HCT) is a process that requires preparation as a continuum from pediatric- to adult-focused services. For adolescents and young adults with chronic or ESRD, this process can be prolonged due to their physical, psychological, family, or ecological factors. HCT preparation is a matter of patient safety and patient rights as the consequences of poor preparation at the time of transfer to adult-focused services are great, including rejection of organs, disease relapse, or even death. We present a case to illustrate important points of HCT preparation, with suggestions for intervention by the interdisciplinary team members who serve (and will serve) these survivors of pediatric-onset health conditions ...
A recent study suggests that practicing yoga may reduce fatigue and inflammation in breast cancer survivors.. Yoga is an ancient system of relaxation, exercise, and healing with origins in Indian philosophy. Early descriptions of yoga are written in Sanskrit, the classical literary language of India. The first known work is The Yoga Sutras, written more than 2,000 years ago, although yoga may have been practiced up to 5,000 years ago. The initial concepts have been adapted over time through translation and scholarly interpretation, but the fundamental principles describing the practice of yoga in the quest of the soul remain largely intact. In human research, yoga has been shown to reduce heart rate and blood pressure, increase breath holding time and lung capacity, improve muscle relaxation and body composition, cause weight loss, and increase overall physical endurance.. In a recent study, researchers randomly assigned 200 breast cancer survivors to either 90 minutes of hatha yoga twice ...
This study was designed to evaluate symptomatic ON in a large cohort of long-term childhood leukemia survivors, with a separate analysis of patients treated by chemotherapy alone or by chemotherapy and HSCT. The cumulative incidence estimation was 2.8% for all patients, 6.8% after HSCT and 1.4% in the chemotherapy group.. In previous publications, the incidence estimation has been variable, probably reflecting differences in the definition (symptomatic or asymptomatic) and detection methods of ON, anti-leukemic treatments and cohort sizes.20 Our estimation is similar to those reported after several chemotherapeutic protocols such as the BFM 95 with 1.8% in 1951 patients,21 the UKALL XII with 4% in 1053 patients,22 and in a study from Greece that found a cumulative incidence of 2.5% in 276 patients.23 In some other cohorts, reported incidences have been higher, ranging from 7.1 to 14%.15,24-27 The time of occurrence we describe here is also comparable with many existing studies who reported a ...
