Daily activity, mood, and quality of life in colorectal cancer patients with chemotherapy ‐induced peripheral neuropathy: A mediation effect analysis
This is a rare study to investigate the relationship among daily activity, mood, and quality of life (QoL) in colorectal cancer patients with chemotherapy ‐induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), by using the mediation effect analysis. According to the results, the mediation effect of mood between daily activities and QoL should be further emphasized for colorectal cancer patients with CIPN. AbstractChemotherapy ‐induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) with restriction of daily activity (RDA) was common consequence of oxaliplatin‐based chemotherapy in colorectal cancer patients. CIPN with RDA and negative mood may impact the quality of life (QoL). However, the relationships among RDA, mood, and QoL remain unclear. This was a cross‐sectional relative study in which four instruments were used: the Neuropathic Pain Symptom Inventory was used to measure the severity of CIPN; the Screening of Activity Limitation and Safety Awareness scale was used to evaluate RDA; the Profile of Mood States Short Form w as used to assess negative mood; and the Functional Assessment Cancer Center Therapy‐Colorectal scale version 4 was used to evaluate QoL. Relationships among the variables were analyzed by bivariate correlation, hierarchical multiple linear regression, and Baron and Kenny's mediation testing. One hundred three colorectal adenocarcinoma patients with CIPN after receiving oxaliplatin‐based chemotherapy were enrolled. Patients had mild‐to‐moderate CIPN and mild RDA. Signifi...

Conclusion The current level of awareness for clinical trials of cancer patients in our hospital was relatively low, even in patients who had atte nded clinical trials before. It’s necessary to improve patients’ awareness of clinical trial by promoting harmony relationship between patients and doctors, as well as by enhancing related propagation. Strengthening the adequacy and efficacy of informed consent in clinical trials also needs to b e achieved in the future. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.02
Conclusion T4 stage patients had worse survival in N2 group. To get a more precisely stratification, skip metastasis and number of involved lymph node stations should be considered in future N stage classification. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.03
Conclusion The expression of TRIM59 is closely related to the prognosis of NSCLC patients, and it is an independent risk factor for NSCLC patients. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.04
This study mainly explores the relationship between the ASPM expression of lung adenocarcinoma and the development and prognosis of lung cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the expression of abnormal spindle-like microcephaly-associated protein (ASPM) in lung adenocarcinoma and the development and prognosis in lung cancer. Methods A total of 90 cases of lung adenocarcinoma tissue specimens and 90 cases of benign pulmonary lesions were collected, the expression of ASPM was detected by immunohistochemical technique, and the expression of ASPM in 12 pairs of tissues was detected by real-t...

Conclusion The acceptance of clinical trials in cancer patients in our hospital is generally high, especially in patients who had a history of trial participation. It ’s of substantial significance to give full play to the role of doctors in improving the acceptance of clinical trials of cancer patients in China. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.07
