Investigating the Effects of the Progressive Muscle Relaxation-Guided Imagery Combination on Patients with Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy Treatment: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials
ConclusionsIndependent trials indicate that the PMR–GI combination is an effective way to tackle the impact of nausea and vomiting and to improve patients’ mental state. However, studies involving other types of primary tumors would be useful because seven of the eight clinical trials only included breast cancer patients. Future research on the identification of potential effects on disease-related parameters (e.g., cytokines and disease-recurrence) and on patient survival is highly needed.

Combined Treatment for Lung Metastasis from Hepatocellular Carcinoma: A Case Report
This report describes a 62-year-old Korean woman with lung metastases from HCC. She first underwent surgery (stage IV) and six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy. She was subsequently treated with sorafenib, but computed tomography showed progressive disease and she experienced the side effects of sorafenib. The patient started treatment with TKM, including pharmacopuncture and herbal medicine, in addition to sorafenib. After 8 weeks of TKM treatment, the size of the metastatic nodules decreased and the sorafenib-associated side effect symptoms improved. These findings suggest that treatment with a combination of TKM and sora...
