The coping mechanism in lung neoplasma patients

Background/Objective. Cancer is a major stress and traumatic factor for every individual, leading to psychological distress in over 50% of the patients.1 Thus, studies that approached the coping problem in patients with cancer appeared. We aimed to analyze the coping style and its stability in time in patients with lung cancer and to evaluate the intensity of anxiety and depression before and after receiving the diagnosis.Methods: Before receiving the diagnosis and after one month patients completed the COPE scale, Generalized Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire (GAD-7) and Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9). A comparison was performed in the baseline and final parameters stratified in respect to coping styles.Result. We observed that at one month after receiving the diagnosis about their disease, the patients had a significant higher GAD7 score (median score 12 vs. 4 points; p

This study aims to evaluate the bioequivalence of two capecitabine formulations (150-mg tablet) using healthy male subjects under nonfasting conditions. The study was conducted as an open, randomized, three-period, semi-replicated design with three sequences (RRT, RTR, TRR) with a 1-week washout interval. The subjects were selected for the study after having their health status previously assessed by a clinical evaluation and laboratory tests (biochemical and hematological parameters, and urinalysis). A single capecitabine tablet (150 mg) was given in each occasion. Plasma capecitabine concentrations were analyzed by ...

MacQueen, Stephen C. Strother, Sidney H. Kennedy, Benicio N. FreyAbstractNeuroimaging studies assessing neurobiological differences between patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and healthy controls (HC) are often hindered by small sample sizes and heterogeneity of the patient sample. We performed a comprehensive literature search for studies assessing cortical thickness between patient and control groups, including studies inv...

In this study, we investigated brain activation in suicidal and non-suicidal patients with MDD during facial emotion processing and executive control. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data from the NESDA-fMRI study (MDD patients N = 103, healthy controls N = 26, HC) were analyzed. Patients were divided in a group of suicide attempters (N = 18, SA), suicide ideators (N = 31, SI) and a patient-control group (N = 73, PC). A gender discrimination task with emotional faces and the Tower of London executive planning task were investigated. An ANOVA was performed to co...

The Trichotillomania Dimensional Scale (TTM-D) is a newly developed DSM-5 scale that aims to assess the symptoms of TTM dimensionally. The aim of this current study was to examine the psychometric properties of the TTM-D in a sample of 483 participants. Principal Component Analysis indicated a single factor structure of the TTM-D.

Authors: Shibata N, Matsumoto K, Kitamura S, Sakashita A, Kizawa Y, Hirata KI Abstract A 67-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital due to an acute onset of consciousness disturbance, aphasia and left hemiplegia. Computed tomography revealed multiple systemic infarctions, including brain, kidney and spleen. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed vegetations attached to the mitral valve leaflets, which was suspected to be the embolic source. Repeated blood cultures were negative, and advanced lung cancer was incidentally revealed by computed tomography. She was then diagnosed with nonbacterial thrombotic endo...

A 69-year-old man with no symptoms presented to our hospital because of the appearance of an abnormal shadow on chest X-ray. Computed tomography revealed a right middle-lobe mass with spicula and infiltration into the upper lobe. Since a bronchofiberscopic examination showed no malignant cells in the specimen, the patient underwent thoracoscopic surgery, which revealed PHG. Spiculation and interlobar infiltration, which comprise th...
