Influence of Coping Strategy on Perception of Anxiety and Depression in Patients with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer.

Influence of Coping Strategy on Perception of Anxiety and Depression in Patients with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2019 Dec 05;: Authors: Jankowska-Polańska B, Polański J, Chabowski M, Rosińczuk J, Mazur G Abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of cognitive adjustment to cancer, assessed on the mini-Mental Adjustment to Cancer (mini-MAC) scale, on perception of anxiety and depression, assessed with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). There were 185 patients, grouped according to the score of mini-MAC into constructive coping strategies, balanced coping strategies, and destructive coping strategies. We found that patients with predominantly destructive coping strategies had a higher level of anxiety than those with balanced or constructive strategies (10.9 vs. 9.3 vs. 6.3 points, respectively; p

However, whether small interfering RNA (siRNA) mediated knockdown of α7nAChR can reduce sorafenib (SOR) resistance in HCC cells remains to be determined.Materials and methodsThe effects ...

This study reviews electrophysiological studies of ketamine's effects in individuals with depression as well as healthy controls, with a focus on two putative markers of synaptic potentiation: gamma oscillations and long-term potentiation. The review focuses on: 1) measures of gamma oscillations and power and their relationship to both acute, psychotomimetic drug effects as well as delayed antidepressant response in mood disorders; 2) changes in long-term potentiation as a promising measure of synaptic potentiation following ketamine administration; and 3) recent efforts to model antidepressant response to ketamine using n...

Ferroptosis is characterized by iron-dependence and lipid hydroperoxides accumulation, and its primary mechanism involves the suppression of system Xc−-GSH (glutathione)-GPX4 (glutathione peroxidase 4) axis. Co-incidentally, cancer cells are also metab...

It could be directly monitored the generated H2O2 to determine the wound microenvironment, which related to its healing status. Europium(III) Coordination Polymers (Eu CPs) had the ability to detect the level of H2O2 and promote wound healing. Thus, a H2O2-responsive smart dressing, fabricated by loading Eu CPs into polyacr...

At a molecular level, the effects of photobiomodulation (PBM) are not fully established. The present study aimed to assess the impact of PBM on the alteration of genes linked to Janus kinase-Signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK-STAT) signalling in wounded and diabetic...
