Benefits of ginger in the control of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Rev Bras Enferm. 2020;73(2):e20180903 Authors: Borges DO, Freitas KABDS, Minicucci EM, Popim RC Abstract OBJECTIVES: To identify and discuss scientific evidence of the effects of ginger use on the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. METHODS: This is an integrative reviewperformed by Ganong's reference. RESULTS: We included 24 studies, highlighting three thematic categories, namely 1) antiemetic action of ginger - nausea (13 articles; of these, nine significant) and emesis (10 studies; of these, six significant); 2) action in the control of nausea (11 articles; of these, six significant) and vomiting (8 articles; of these, three significant) in the acute phase; 3) action in the control of nausea (6 articles; of these, three significant) and vomiting (6 articles; of these, three significant) in the delayed phase. There were divergences of the methods used. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: This complementary therapy has low cost and easy access, but no statistical confirmation of its effectiveness in the management of nausea and vomiting in cancer patients was found.

Authors: Li G, Cheng D Abstract Objective: To carry out the meta-analysis on the relationship between the expression of nucleotide excision repair cross-complementary enzyme 1 (ERCC1) protein and platinum chemosensitivity in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods: The literature on the expression of ERCC1 and platinum chemosensitivity in patients with advanced NSCLC was searched in computer, which was published from January 2009 to August 2019 on the databases such as China Journal Full-text Database (CJFD), China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Wanfang Database, VIP, PubMe...

CONCLUSION: Benson's relaxation response as a complementary method may improve sleep quality and anorexia in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Further studies with greater sample size and longer follow-up period are needed to confirm the current findings. PMID: 32444038 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo summarize the current available treatments for stage I rectal cancer and the evidence that supports them.Recent FindingsRadical surgery, or total mesorectal excision (TME) without neoadjuvant therapy, reports excellent oncologic outcomes, with 5-year disease-free survival of approximately 95%. Alternative therapies include local excision, which has acceptable long-term outcomes in some low-risk T1 tumors; but overall local excision, with or without additional chemotherapy or radiation, generally reports 5-year disease-free survival less than TME alone. New research is showing complete clinical r...

Conclusion: Platinum-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy was well tolerated in patients with locally advanced cervical cancer and showed moderate response activity. Compared to intravenous neoadjuvant chemotherapy, intra-arterial neoadjuvant chemotherapy had an evident advantage in terms of the clinical response while maintaining a similar toxicity rate. The clinical efficacy of intra-arterial neoadjuvant chemotherapy deserves further evaluation. PMID: 32184892 [PubMed]
