Complementary individual homeopathy in paediatric cancer care: A case series from a University Hospital, Switzerland.

CONCLUSION: The collaboration between HONK and IKOM established iHOM in paediatric oncology in Bern. In this setting, iHOM was a safe and supportive additional treatment for various indications during the conventional cancer care. However, no generalizable results can be deducted from these data. We emphasize future research on this topic. PMID: 30477851 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Lifestyle factors, such as physical activity, sleep, and social activity appear to be associated with cognitive function among older people. Physical activity and appropriate durations of sleep and conversation are important for cognitive function. Introduction Dementia is a major public health issue worldwide, with a serious burden for patients, caregivers, and society, as well as substantial economic impacts (1). Although the prevalence of late-life cognitive impairment and dementia are expected to increase in future, effective disease-modifying treatments are currently unavailable. Therefore, unders...

Conclusions: This study demonstrated a rapid improvement of many symptoms in the subacute post-operative period in pituitary tumor patients. Disturbed sleep was identified as the only symptom to worsen post-operatively, encouraging potential prospective interventions to improve sleep, and subsequently improve the QOL in pituitary tumor patients following surgical intervention. Introduction Pituitary tumors are relatively rare primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adults (1) but make up 10% of all neurosurgical interventions in the United States (2). They are often an incidental finding in autopsies and brain...

This study aims to determine the prevalence and severity of insomnia as well as risk factors and sleep-related symptom clusters in a sample of cancer patients.MethodsA cross-sectional survey was conducted collecting data from 213 cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy (age  = 53.1 ± 11.3 years, 60% female). Insomnia was measured using the Insomnia Severity Index, a sleep log, and Actigraph, while symptoms were assessed using the Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. Quality of life was measured with the Functional A ssessment of Cancer Ther...

Abstract Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is subjective and has wide inter-individual variability. Given that leptin is commonly associated with fatigue syndrome, its use as a potential biomarker for CRF is being investigated. The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the association between leptin and CRF in early-stage breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. In a prospective cohort study, patients completed assessments at baseline (T1), during chemotherapy (T2) and after chemotherapy (T3). Levels of plasma leptin and adipokines were measured using a Luminex bead-immunoassay and CRF was measured usin...

The women’s health technology or so-called femtech market has been on the rise for the last couple of years, but it has mainly revolved around fertility and pregnancy. We believe that female health topics reach far beyond such traditional issues and players should concentrate more on menopause, endometriosis, or mental health, just to name a few areas. Thus, we tried to collect companies which are on top of their game in the conventional fertility and/or pregnancy area, but also start-ups and ventures who are looking way beyond that. Here’s our guide to 10 outstanding companies in women’s health. The w...

(CNN) — Hey, sleepyheads. What you believe about sleep may be nothing but a pipe dream. Many of us have notions about sleep that have little basis in fact and may even be harmful to our health, according to researchers at NYU Langone Health’s School of Medicine, who conducted a study published Tuesday in the journal Sleep Health. “There’s such a link between good sleep and our waking success,” said lead study investigator Rebecca Robbins, a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Population Health at NYU Langone Health. “And yet we often find ourselves debunking myths, whether ...

This study was a first of its kind. It involved a head-to-head comparison of acupuncture and cognitive behavioral therapy, enrolled patients with many different types of cancer and included nearly 30% minority participants. Previous studies focused solely on breast cancer and included 90% white participants. Limitations of the previous research make it difficult to determine if the results are applicable to patients with other cancers and people of diverse backgrounds. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acupuncture Are Effective Acupuncture and cognitive behavioral therapy treatments produced clinically meaningful reduction...

In this study, we hypothesized that appropriate epigenomic elements (H3K27ac marks for active enhancers) can guide us to reveal valuable information about the loci with suggestive evidence of association. Our aim is to investigate these loci and explore how they may lead to the development of PsA. We evaluated this potential by investigating the genes connected with these loci from the perspective of pharmacogenomics and gene expression. We illustrated that markers with suggestive evidence of association outside the MHC region are enriched in H3K27ac marks for osteoblast and chondrogenic differentiated cells; using pharmac...
