The use of virtual communities in the support to patients with breast cancer

Resumo Pensando nas comunidades virtuais como espa ço de interação e compartilhamento de experiências, principalmente entre indivíduos acometidos por doenças crônicas, objetivamos com este estudo, analisar o papel e natureza de suporte oferecido pelas comunidades virtuais às portadoras de câncer de mama. Estudo descritivo com abordagem qual itativa. Para coleta de dados foi utilizado o aplicativo Netvizz, extraindo dados dos cinco primeiros grupos abertos de câncer de mama do Facebook, no ano de 2016. Foram encontradas 2921 postagens, totalizando 1722 comentários. Para análise dos dados foi criada uma nuvem de palavras através do W ordArt, e as palavras mais recorrentes foram discutidas em categorias transversais: Eu Confessional X Você Interacional; processo terapêutico, religiosidade e “ Arco de Interven ções ” . Constatamos, pelos resultados, que o suporte oferecido nestes espa ços se dá especialmente nas esferas informacional e emocional, indo desde a fase de diagnóstico até o controle da doença. A compreensão das significações das informações partilhadas nas comunidades virtuais por mulheres com câncer de mama pode contribuir para a realização de práticas d e cuidado que não se restrinjam às abordagens de cunho biológico e tecnicist...

Understanding the tumor immune microenvironment (TIME) promises to be key for optimal cancer therapy, especially in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Integrating spatial resolution of immune cells with laser capture microdissection gene expression profiles, we defined distinct TIME stratification in TNBC, with implications for current therapies including immune checkpoint blockade. TNBCs with an immunoreactive microenvironment exhibited tumoral infiltration of granzyme B+CD8+ T cells (GzmB+CD8+ T cells), a type 1 IFN signature, and elevated expression of multiple immune inhibitory molecules including indoleamine 2,3-di...

Abstract Copy number alterations (CNAs) are a frequent feature in human breast cancer, and one of the hallmarks of genomic instability. The FOSL1, GSTP1 and CCND1 genes are located at 11q13, a cytoband commonly affected by CNA in breast cancer, with relevant function in progression and invasion. Our main goal was to analyze CNAs of these genes and determine their association with breast cancer subtypes. Seventy-three cases of invasive breast tumors [52 Luminal, 7 HER2+ and 14 triple negative (TNBC) subtypes] were analyzed by TaqMan assays. CNAs were observed for all genes, with gains more frequently observed. Gains of the ...

This study maps and analyzes patient flows for breast cancer chemotherapy in order to identify the potential implications for organization of pharmaceutical services in the cancer care network. An ecological study design sought to correlate the place of residence with place of care for breast cancer patients. All chemotherapy procedures financed by Brazil ’ s Unified Health System (SUS) and performed from January to December 2013 were included. Flows were mapped using TerraView ® software. A total of 1 347 803 outpatient chemotherapy procedures were delivered by 243 cancer care units located in 156 municipalities...

By JESSICA DaMASSA, WTF HEALTH Health coaches are playing an ever-more important role in healthcare, but there’s no one single authority when it comes to finding one — or vetting them for that matter — until now. Marina Borukhovich, CEO of startup YourCoach, talks about how she hopes to disrupt health coaching after she learned the value of having a ‘squad’ of experts help her through her breast cancer journey. In fact, ‘Squads’ are the value-add that YourCoach is hoping will set them apart. The app’s signature feature is that it lets you build-your-own team of exp...

Abstract KRAS G12D point mutation plays an important role in the incidence of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as well as colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer and breast cancer. Here, we developed a novel anchor-like DNA (alDNA) electrochemical sensor for the detection of KRAS point mutation level (the concentration ratio of the specific KRAS point mutant DNA (M-DNA) to the total DNA (t-DNA) of both mutant and wild-type DNAs carrying the same allele). Compared to those conventional ligation-based DNA sensors, the proposed alDNA sensor achieved the one-step capture of both wild-type and mutant DNA, and the subseq...
