Conclusion Results provide insights into modifiable risk factors for morning fatigue. These risk factors can be used to develop more targeted interventions. Implications for Practice Patients in the high and very high morning fatigue classes experienced high symptom and comorbidity burdens and significant decrements in functional status. Using this information, clinicians can identify patients who are at an increased risk for higher levels of morning fatigue and prescribe interventions to improve this devastating symptom.

Background Gynecologic cancer can create hopelessness and death anxiety and alter the lifestyle of the affected women and their caregivers. Perceived social support may facilitate coping with this illness. Objective The aim of this study was to determine whether hospitalized patients with gynecologic cancer and their caregivers differ in feelings of hopelessness and death anxiety and how those conditions may be related to their social support. Methods Two hundred patients with gynecologic cancer and their 200 caregivers from 1 university hospital were enrolled in this descriptive correlational study. Study measures...

Background Depressive symptoms are prevalent in patients with cancer and are heterogeneous; however, existing methods of grouping patients with heterogeneous symptoms have limitations. Objectives The purpose of this study was to identify depressive symptom clusters in patients with cancer using a data-driven method and to explore their relationships with symptoms of anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder. Methods Data from 247 patients were analyzed in this cross-sectional study. Latent class analysis was used to identify depressive symptom clusters, using 9 depressive symptoms from the Patient Health Questionna...

McGowanAbstractAnxiety disorders are common and disabling conditions the treatment of which remains a challenge. While different groups of medication are available for their treatment, a substantial proportion of patients remain refractory to pharmacotherapy. The reason for this variation in the individual response to treatment has yet to be understood; however genetic factors have been shown to play an important role. Up to now there have been limited publications about pharmacogenetics of anxiety disorders, compared to studies in...

This study used the multivariate network approach to gain a better understanding of how patients ’ symptoms and risk and protective factors (i.e. physical symptoms, social withdrawal, illness cognitions, goal adjustment and partner support) are interconnected. We used cross-sectional data from a sample of cancer patients seeking psychological care (n = 342). Using network modelling, the r elationships among symptoms of fatigue, depression and anxiety, and potential risk and protective factors were explored. Additionally, centrality (i.e. the number and strength of connections of a construct) and stabili...

In this study, we attempted to extrapolate the holistic anti-insomnia mechanism of SZRP through herbal targeting and network pharmacology level. The results indicated that the ingredients of Suanzaoren can target multi-neurotransmitter receptors at synapse interface, which was reported to be associated with sedative and hypnotic effects. While the four additional herbs can hit multiple pathways downstream of membrane neurotransmitters. Furthermore, the four additional herbs showed highly cooperative targeting patterns in the paralleled and cross-talked pathways related to inflammatory regulation and endocrine system, which...

In this study, we set out to investigate the percentage and absolute count of Tregs in major depressive disorder (MDD) patients and their correlation with disease severity. MATERIALS &METHODS: This is a case-control study consisting of 47 MDD patients and 47 healthy controls. MDD patients were treated with antidepressant drugs according to their physician's choice. The severity of MDD was assessed using Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) at the time of recruitment. Healthy controls completed the Depression Anxiety Scoring System (DASS21) questionnaire to ensure the...
