People receiving chemotherapy are often plagued by insomnia at night and excessive drowsiness during the day. But a new study in the journal Cancer suggests that yoga can help. Breast cancer patients in the study who practiced at home at least twice a week reported better sleep quality over time, compared to those who practiced less often or not at all. The new research is “another piece of evidence, along with now dozens of studies, showing that incorporating a mind-body practice within conventional cancer care can help decrease side effects for patients,” says lead author Lorenzo Cohen, director of the integr...

We examined the prevalence, severity, and nature of subjective sleep complaints in women surviving stage I-III breast cancer who were 1-10 years posttreatment. We also examined the demographic, medical, physical, and psychosocial correlates of poor sleep in these women in order to identify the subgroups that may be most in need of intervention. METHOD: A total of 200 patients at a comprehensive cancer center who were 1-10 years posttreatment for primary stage I-III breast cancer with no evidence of disease at the time of enrollment completed a battery of questionnaires on demographics, sleep, physical symptoms, mood, ...

Background: Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors block DNA damage repair and may thereby enhance the clinical activity of DNA-damaging chemotherapy. Homologous recombination is defective in BRCA1/2-mutated tumors, leading to more error-prone mechanisms of DNA repair and increased sensitivity to PARP inhibition. V is a potent PARP inhibitor that enhances the antitumor activity of platinum agents in preclinical models. This phase 2 trial (NCT01506609) investigated the safety and efficacy of V+C/P or V+ temozolomide (TMZ) vs Plc+C/P in pts with locally recurrent or metastatic breast cancer harboring a BRCA1 or BRCA2 ...
