A total dose of 60.8 g cyclophosphamide had been given and the XC regimen was discontinued immediately. The patient experienced frequent episodes of bladder tamponade over 18 months and underwent continuous bladder irrigation and cystoscopic fulguration. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy ...

AbstractThe presence of pain in elderly persons with cognitive decline is often neglected, under-reported, underestimated, misdiagnosed and not adequately treated, with consequences that have a strong impact on health, independence in activities of daily living and quality of life.

AbstractThromboembolism (TE) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in adult cancer patients; however, there is a lack of sufficient knowledge on TE in pediatric cancer patients. We aimed to determine the epidemiology of TE in Korean children with cancer. Between January 2000 and July 2015, we retrospectively analyzed pediatric patients newly diagnosed with cancer at six tertiary hospitals in Korea. Of 3611 children with cancer, 33 (0.91%) had TE. A higher number of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (n  = 13), brain tumors (n = 6), lymphoma (n = 4), and bone/soft tiss...

ConclusionsThe results of the current study suggest that real-world symptom data collected through the ePRO application on cancer patients receiving ICI therapy aligns with the data from clinical trials. Correlations between different symptoms occur, which might reflect therapeutic efficiency, side effects, or tumor progression. These correlations should be further investigated with data coupled to clinical outcomes.
