Ultrasound is an easily feasible noninvasive technique which is widely used in rehabilitation settings. Measurement of dermal thickness via ultrasound can be less time consuming than volume measurements with water displacement and circumference measurements. Measurement of subcutaneous tissue thickness were used for both assessment and treatment outcome. Recently reliability of ultrasound examination of thickness of the skin and subcutaneous tissue were studied by Han et al. However, diagnostic accuracy of this method has not been studied before. Early identification of breast cancer related lymphedema to start treatment earlier is critical. Consequently, reliability and diagnostic accuracy of the assessment techniques of lymphedema is crucial to evaluate both severity at the time of diagnosis, and later effectiveness of treatment. The aim of this study was to establish diagnostic accuracy of between side differences of ultrasonographic dermal thickness measurements in breast cancer related arm lymphedema.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefits of a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for psycho-immune dysregulation in women newly diagnosed with breast cancer compared to women with breast cancer completing an attention control condition (health education classes). Women will be randomized to either the MBSR or health education classes. They will complete psychometric instruments evaluating psychological outcomes and will provide blood samples for immune outcomes. They will also provide saliva samples for cortisol diurnal rhythm determination. Measures will be done longitudinally pre and post MBSR or health education program. It is hypothesized that MBSR participants will exhibit improved psychological and immunological outcomes over time, as compared to women randomized to the health education classes.
This study evaluates a web-based decision aid, named RealRisks, in promoting genetic testing intention among Orthodox Jewish women. 50 Orthodox Jewish women will take a baseline survey, self-administer the decision aid, and then complete two more surveys: one within one month of completing the decision aid and one at 6 months after completing the decision aid.
A prospective, double-blinded randomized controlled, 1-year follow-up study was designed to compare the analgesic effect of serratus plane block (SPB) after breast cancer surgery. Women undergoing radical mastectomy were dIvided into Control group and SPB group. The postoperative acute pain was evaluated by numerical rating scale (NRS) and the effect of preventing chronic pain was assessed at 3, 6, 12 months after surgery by NRS.
The aim of this prospective, observational study is the evaluation of the effectiveness of a 14-day Specialist Palliative Care therapy in participants with advanced breast cancer carried out in a stationary palliative care unit in Poland. The length of the entire study will be 36 months.
The goal of this study is to evaluate patient comfort during compression with a standard flat mammographic paddle and an investigational curved paddle. This is a study that will be performed with x-ray imaging and will be used to determine if an overall reduction in pain can be appreciated in patients without loss in image quality as compared to the current standard mammogram. Another benefit of the curved paddle may be an increase of perceivable and measurable tissue capture.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of the model of delivering CHW-driven home-based comprehensive NCD control services aimed to prevent premature deaths from cardio-vascular diseases, stroke and breast, cervix and oral cancers in the hard-to-reach women.
Obesity among breast cancer survivors is known to be associated with recurrence and other co-morbidities. However, there have been no studies on weight reduction program combining diet and anti-obesity drug for obese breast cancer survivors. The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to examine the effects of Mediterranean Diet and naltrexone/bupropion treatment on inflammation and metabolic risk factors in overweight or obese breast cancer patients after breast cancer treatment.
The purpose is to determine the efficacy of the nutritional supplement Ocoxin-Viusid oral solution (OV) in the reduction of acute toxicity of Chemotherapy (CT) treatment with patients with breast carcinoma. A randomized, double-blind phase II clinical trial was designed, with a sample of 120 patients distributed in 2 arms: 60 patients will receive the CT treatment plus the OV, 60 will receive CT plus OV placebo. The OV / placebo will be administered before, during and 3 weeks after the conclusion of the CT. A better tolerance to the treatment is expected with the addition of the nutritional supplement.
This is a prospective, single arm study, which is examining doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) once every 2 weeks with pegteograstim support in Korean early breast cancer.
