Objectives: To determine the influence of family, peers, school, and physicians on exercise in pediatric oncology patients and evaluate the barriers to physical activity levels in this population. Methods: A search of PubMed and Google Scholar resulted in 12 related articles. The articles were assessed for the influence of school systems, family, peers, self-efficacy, and physicians on exercise. Additionally barriers and interventions to physical activity were also assessed. Limitations and research methodologies of each article were also evaluated. Results: Many school systems were unsure of expectations in regards to physical activity for their returning students with cancer. Most schools acknowledged willingness to increase exercise for these students; however, there is a communication gap between the medical field and the school system on what expectations should be. Family is associated with increased physical activity levels and healthier diets in this population with children preferring mothers

To be clinically useful, an instrument assessing health-related quality of life (HRQOL) should be easy to understand and quick to answer. Few instruments have been designed to be short, simple, and easily understandable by patients from all educational levels. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of a brief general instrument developed to assess HRQOL. Results from a preliminary study regarding the initial development of the Barretos Short Instrument for Assessment of Quality of Life (BSIqol) with 80 cancer patients are presented. Out of all the patients, 59 completed the BSIqol on two occasions in order to evaluate the reproducibility test-retest. Validity analyses were done comparing scores from BSIqol with EORTC QLQ-C30 and Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS). In addition, BSIqol scores were analyzed in function of ECOG-PS, work activity, and financial income. BSIqol demonstrated good internal consistency (Cronbachs α = 0.79) and adequate test-retest
Since over 5 years the Thoracic Oncology Center is a strong pillar of the Cancer Center Zürich. During this time span our knowledge of the biology of lung cancer has greatly improved. Lung cancer screening is on its way to become a reality and progress has been made in surgical techniques as well as with stereotactic radiotherapy of thoracic malignancies. Also, patients can profit from considerable advances in personalized therapy and immunotherapy leading to new therapeutic concepts. A strong Swiss-Chinese collaboration with the Shanghai Chest Hospital has been established by the Department of Thoracic Surgery over the past eight years and resulted in a fruitful exchange on the science and practice of treatment of chest malignancies ...
On Marathon Monday, April 18, one MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) patient reached another milestone in her recovery from cancer. Kristin Santanello, age 19, became the first MGHfC patient to join the hospitalÕs marathon team. Santanello completed the race with a time of 5:08:06 and raised more than $14,500 for the MGHfC Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Unit, the same program where she is still a patient in remission.. Santanello was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was 5 years old. The disease was caught early, and after two weeks of intense chemotherapy, she was in remission. She continued to receive chemotherapy treatments for two more years, and the cancer has remained at bay. During her treatment, her father, Dan, decided to run the Boston Marathon to raise awareness of his daughterÕs illness. He was one of the first members of the MGHfC Marathon Team and ran in honor of his daughter for 12 years, raising a total of $300,000 for the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology ...

Febrile Neutropenia. Emerging Pathogens Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE). VRE has been a concern in an era where some institutions have been using more commonly vancomycin or teicoplanin as part of an empiric regimen protocol. Other risk factors include duration of neutropaenia and antibiotic therapy, with ceftazidime or amikacin in particular 39. Outbreaks with VRE have been described in paediatric oncology units with associated deaths 40. Patient to patient transmission on an oncology unit is an important recognised factor in the development of outbreaks. Therefore, barrier isolation associated with a restricted used of glycopeptides have been key in decreasing colonization of patients at risk 39,41. The emergence of VRE also illustrates the difficulty of trading off the risk to the individual patient and society (or at least the oncology unit). A balance is required to give maximal benefit of broad spectrum coverage to the individual and the wider benefit to the unit as a whole, by ...

When I held our first grandchild in my arms, I broke down, admits Jim Deupree, who is known for his calm and quiet strength.. After Jim was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2004 at age 54, he and his wife, Jill, prayed he would live to see their children graduate from college, marry and one day start families of their own. Their fears for the future were compounded when Jims beloved older sister, Carole, who had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma before Jim, lost her own battle with the disease in a few short years. And so the Deuprees considered all of the milestones Jim has experienced as gifts made possible by the stem cell transplants overseen by ocologist-hematologist Stephano Tarantolo, MD, in 2004 and 2014.. They are grateful for the care and support of the entire Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center team and for each warm welcome received when Jim has returned to the Methodist Hospital Oncology Unit, where Jill said, The nurses treat us like old friends. Jim and Jill, now ...

Brayden was born premature on January 4th, 2012. After a 54 day stent in the NICU, he finally came home. On his 1st birthday we were told that he had a brain mass. After further scans and a biopsy we were given a diagnosis of a Grade II Bilateral Thalamic Astrocytoma on March 1st, 2013. Chemotherapy is the first line of treatment, although it will not be curative. His protocol consists of Carboplatin and Vincristine, and will last for one year. Brayden is too young for radiation. There is currently no cure. We take each day one at a time and do our best to enjoy Brayden while he is here with us. "When your child is diagnosed with cancer, life is magnified. There is no such thing as a little cancer, a small joy, or a slight discomfort. You begin a rollercoaster ride that takes you through your lowest lows and your greatest thrills.

We were scared at about 4 months old when we were told she might have a form of brain Cancer called Neuroblastoma. She has Anisicoria, which is when 1 pupil is more responsive than the other. In her case they felt that the Anisicoria was either a symptom of this Cancer, or a harmless birth defect. After a few days of testing at UTMBs pediatric oncology unit, we found she was "clear". It was horrible to go through that, and Id be lying if I didnt admit that I felt like it was "payback" for whatever it was I had not done right in my early 20s pregnancy. You just momentarily lose all sense of reason and faith when your childs life could be threatened with a fatal illness ...

The ward, like the rest of the oncology unit is brand new and part of the redeveloped Box Hill Hospital and I have to say it is wonderful to be treated in something so new, clean and with all that is needed. I was there for around 4 and a half hours in my section the 6 chairs (managed by two very good nurses) turned over at least twice and in at least 2 cases 3 times (mine obviously didnt!). A lot of people were there on long term monthly chemo getting just a single injection or drip for 30 mins. I felt lucky that my cancer is treatable in a very simple way. Sure it will be a hell of a ride for the next 9 weeks but all going well that will be it. Done and dusted ...

A nationwide questionnaire-based survey was designed to evaluate the management and prophylaxis of febrile neutropenia in paediatric patients admitted to Hematology-Oncology and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Units. Of the 34 participating centres, 40 and 63% respectively, continue to prescribe antibacterial and antimicotic prophylaxis in Low Risk subjects and 78 and 94% in transplant patients. Approximately half of the centers prescribes a combination antibiotic regimen as first-line therapy in Low Risk patients and up to 81% in High Risk patients. When initial empirical therapy fails after 7 days, 63% of the centres add empirical antimicotic therapy in Low and 81% in High Risk patients. Overall management varies significantly across centers. Preventive nursing procedures are in accordance with international guidelines. This survey is the first focused on prescribing practices in children with cancer and could facilitate implementing practice guidelines. ...
