Providing integrative care in the pre-chemotherapy setting: a pragmatic controlled patient-centered trial with implications for supportive cancer care

ConclusionA patient-tailored CIM program, initiated within a week of the first chemotherapy cycle, may help reduce the severity of fatigue, depression, and impaired well-being among patients with breast and gynecological cancers.

Authors: Fekih-Romdhane F, Henchiri H, Ridha R, Labbane R, Cheour M Abstract Breast cancer is a chronic disease that affects both patients and their caregivers. Spouses, in particular, will generally assume the role of primary caregiver and experience significant physical, social, economic and emotional stress. In the face of cancer, being the spouse of a patient is synonymous with unmet psychosocial needs and a new role assignment, that of a primary caregiver. In addition, cancer confronts spouses with fear of partner loss. This leads to a set of adverse consequences such as depression, anxiety, uncertainty, stres...

UCLA biologists have discovered how head injuries adversely affect individual cells and genes  that can lead to serious brain disorders. The life scientists provide the first cell “atlas” of the hippocampus — the part of the brain that helps regulate learning and memory — when it is affected by traumatic brain injury. The team also proposes gene candidates for treating brain disease s associated with traumatic brain injury, such as Alzheimer’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder.The researchers studied more than 6,000 cells in 15 hippocampal cell types — the first study of in...

Powers J, Rainey K, Rybak C, Savage M, Seelaus C, Stoll J, Stopfer JE, Yao XS, Bradbury AR Abstract Telephone disclosure of cancer genetic test results is non-inferior to in-person disclosure. However, how patients who prefer in-person communication of results differ from those who agree to telephone disclosure is unclear but important when considering delivery models for genetic medicine. Patients undergoing cancer genetic testing were recruited to a multi-center, randomized, non-inferiority trial (NCT01736345) comparing telephone to in-person disclosure of genetic test results. We evaluated preferences for in-pe...
