Tai Chi Chuan in postsurgical non-small cell lung cancer patients: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

This study will assess the effect of group TCC in postsurgery NSCLC survivors on VO2peak, lung function, and other aspects. The results of this study will eventually provide clinical proof of the application of TCC as one kind of exercise training for patients across the entire NSCLC continuum, as well as information on the safety and feasibility of exercise.Trial RegistrationChinese Clinical Trial Registry:ChiCTR-IOR-15006548.

Authors: Zhuang H, Ma Y, Wang L, Zhang H Abstract Background: Patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (nsclc) experience great pain and stress. Our study aimed to explore the effect of early palliative care on quality of life in patients with nsclc. Methods: A total of 150 patients were randomly divided into two groups: control group with conventional care and study group with early palliative care. The quality of life (qol) rating scale and self-rating scale of life quality (sslq) were used to analyze the patients' quality of life. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale-D/A (hads-d/a) and Patien...

Conclusions: To help patients with advanced NSCLC optimize their QOL, healthcare professionals should enhance their ability to identify patients who are at elevated risk of poor QOL throughout the course of chemotherapy and to appropriately detect and manage the related physical symptoms and side effects, strengthen patients’ social support, and lessen the anxiety and depressive symptoms of patients.

Conclusions Our results confirm that SABR is well tolerated and does not have a deleterious effect on QoL and psychological state. Results of our study indicate the importance of additional psychological care in the group of patients with COPD.

This study aimed to examine whether awareness of cancer diagnosis and prognosis among patients with stage IV lung cancer treated with first‐line erlotinib vary with psychological distress and quality of life (QoL). This study was carried out at the Comprehensive treatment Department of Tianjin Cancer Hospital between August 2013 and September 2015 among patients ≥18 years‐old and suffering from EGFR mutation‐positive stage IV non‐small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with first‐line erlotinib (150 mg/day; N = 137). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) was administered before (b...

Conclusions: Anxiety, depression or combined disorder might not have influence on 1-year survival of lung cancer patients despite the fact that they are present in large number of patients. However, larger scale trials are needed to confirm these results.

CONCLUSIONS: Thus, pulmonary rehabilitation before lung cancer surgery is potentially an attractive technique for optimizing preoperative exercise capacity, dyspnea sensation and psychological status and conceivably, in turn, reducing postoperative respiratory complications.

Background. Studies demonstrate that early palliative care (EPC) improves advanced cancer patients’ quality of life (QOL) and mood. However, it remains unclear whether the role of palliative care differs based upon patients’ demographic characteristics. We explored whether age and gender moderate the improvements in QOL and mood seen with EPC. Methods. We performed a secondary analysis of data from a randomized controlled trial of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. Patients received either EPC integrated with oncology care or oncology care alone. We assessed the degree to which QOL (Trial Out...
