This study was carried out to determine the changes in sexual functioning of patients with cancer. We identified the frequency and causes of changes in sexual functioning among patients with cancer, and determined whether this change differed according to age, type of cancer, type of treatment, side effects of drugs, anxiety, depression, and perceived social support. The study was conducted with 192 patients with cancer. Data were collected using the data collection form which included questions about socio-demographic, disease-related characteristics as well as those related to changes in sexual functioning. In addition, ...

Herein, we designed a targeting peptide-decorated biomimetic lipoprotein (termed as BL-RD) to enable their deep penetration and efficient accessibility to cancer cell fractions in a tumor, thereby improving the combinational chemo-photodynamic therapy...

Circadian rhythms regulate diverse physiologic processes, including homeostatic functions of steroid hormones and their receptors. Perturbation of these rhythms is associated with pathogenic conditions such as cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, sleep disorder and depression. Clock ge...

Conclusion: Breast cancer patients experience sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, and loss of QoL. During the period of treatment, these do not change significantly, but these symptoms are often overlooked. Providing sufficient explanations about the treatment and prognosis of breast cancer and mental support for breast cancer patients prior to treatment will help to improve patients ’ QoS, anxiety, depression, and QoL.Oncology

CONCLUSION: Breast cancer patients experience sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, and loss of QoL. During the period of treatment, these do not change significantly, but these symptoms are often overlooked. Providing sufficient explanations about the treatment and prognosis of breast cancer and mental support for breast cancer patients prior to treatment will help to improve patients' QoS, anxiety, depression, and QoL.

Abstract The anti-inflammatory diet is based on two diets that have been shown to have many positive health effects-the Mediterranean diet and the Okinawan diet. The anti-inflammatory diet is more than just a prescription for healthy food, but rather a way of life characterized by a plant-based diet and a pattern of living that includes eating a diverse range of locally grown foods eaten in season, conviviality, culinary activities, physical activity, and rest. The Mediterranean diet has been shown to reduce the burden and even prevent the development of cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, depression, colorecta...

CONCLUSION: Patients who had undergone breast reconstruction after mastectomy reported better sexual function and body image and fewer depressive symptoms than patients who had undergone mastectomy alone. Sexual dysfunction was associated with the absence of a marital partner and a higher level of education and was more frequent in the mastectomy group.

AbstractPurposeCancer patients who underwent chemotherapy experience cognitive decline, which, in turn, negatively impacts quality of life (QoL). Depression is considered a psychological factor that is negatively associated with the QoL of cancer patients. However, the relationships among cognitive functioning, depression, and QoL in breast cancer patients are under-researched in the literature. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to identify the role of depression in the relationship between cognitive functioning and QoL among breast cancer patients.MethodsOne hundred thirty breast cancer patients who underwent prim...
