This study is to Assess hypercalciuria between J1 of the cure and 1 J1 6 of the cure of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients receiving conventional adjuvant chemotherapy of breast cancer.
Among the possibilities of intervention to minimize the effects of cancer treatment, the exercises are efficient in improving the physical fitness and quality of life of the elderly in treatment. The goal is to compare the effects of two home physical exercise protocols on quality of life and physical fitness of elderly people with breast cancer who are in hormone use. A study was carried out at the Institute of Integral Medicine Professor Fernando Figueira (IMIP) within the Professional Master Program in Palliative Care Associated with the Residency Program in Health, which evaluated the effectiveness of a protocol of 29 exercises with walking sessions, performed at home , In the quality of life and physical fitness of the elderly in the treatment of breast cancer. The results of the mentioned research showed that the elderly showed improvement both in quality of life and physical fitness. In view of the results and the clinical and functional kinetic observation of these patients, the hypothesis was that a shorter intervention protocol, with fewer exercises with fewer repetitions and a lower degree of difficulty can bring results similar to those found, requiring a shorter time In the accomplishment of the exercises, which can favor the adherence to the protocol by the patients, still achieving positive results in their quality of life and physical fitness. The elderly will undergo evaluations to characterize the sample through questionnaires, the physical fitness assessment will be performed through the Senior Fitness Test (SFT) and anthropometric evaluation before (beginning of the research), in the 6th week and after the 12th week of the research. It will be offered the elderly, instructional material developed for this research - printed manual. It will consist of a routine of 12 exercises to be performed autonomously for range of motion and muscular fitness, using the environmental resources of the home. All control and training guidelines for using the manual will be offered through an introductory lecture and subsequent weekly telephone contacts (twice a week). Participants should complete their respective program for a total period of 12 weeks and mark in the manual how often they performed the exercises. The control group used a protocol with 29 home exercises in a longer manual. The results will be obtained from the statistical package SPSS 10.0 for Windows and a p <0.05 will be accepted.
In this study, PLD, an anthracycline encapsulated in stealth liposomes, which are believed to efficiently deliver the doxorubicin within the tumour mass with less toxicity compared with standard doxorubicin formulation was used. The study aimed to determine whether the combination of PLD-docetaxel would increase tumour response in patients with breast cancer.
The purpose of this study was to specifically compare the long term patient satisfaction of the abdomen after DIEAP flap procedure with conventional abdominoplasty.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether functional games can be used to improve the adherence and quality of life of breast cancer patients with chemotherapy.
In order to develop effective personalized healthcare service program for breast cancer rehabilitation, we designed this study using mobile phone and clinical intervention(feedback coaching).
This is a multicenter retrospective cohort of women participating in breast cancer screening programs in Spain between 2000 and 2009, with a cancer diagnosed during the screening or between the screening interval (interval cancer), specifically true interval cancers and false negatives. The investigators obtained woman-related information (including breast density), tumor-related information (including tumor phenotype), and follow-up information (including relapses, second neoplasms and vital status at the end of follow up (June 2014)). The objective is to evaluate the survival and disease-free period of women participating in screening programs for breast cancer with a cancer diagnosed during the screening or an interval cancer, specifically true interval cancers and false negatives. This study is part of a broader project (CAMISS study), which also includes one prospective cohort (CAMISS Prospective cohort - Identifier in ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02439554).
The main study objective is to determine the feasibility and impact (effectiveness) of intervention models for lifestyle changing (diet and physical activity) on health outcomes. Women 50 to 54-year-old attending the local breast cancer screening and 58-year-old people (both sexes) undergoing colorectal cancer screening are invited to participate in the study. Compliers are randomized into 3 intervention groups (Diet, Physical Activity, and Physical Activity and Diet) and into the 'usual care' Control group. Biological sampling (blood and saliva) is collected from all participants. All participants undergo also anthropometric measurements and fill in a self-administered validated questionnaire on their dietary and physical activity habits. All enrolled subjects receive a booklet with basic information about diet and physical activity. Subjects randomized to the 3 intervention groups are also offered one theoretical and three training courses. The courses are specifically designed for the different interventions proposed and aimed at reinforcing the educational counseling and at supporting behavioral changes. Follow-up is performed at 8 (intermediate follow-up) and 12-14 (final follow-up) months for repeating anthropometric measurements and questionnaire filling and blood sampling (at the final one).
This is a cluster randomized study of an environmental level intervention to improve nutrition and physical activity, among public housing residents. Followup was one year post baseline
The lateral thigh perforator (LTP) flap was previously introduced as an alternative flap for autologous breast reconstruction when the abdomen is not suitable as a donor site. In this prospective study all LTP flap breast reconstructions that have been performed since September 2012 are analyzed. In addition, the surgical refinements that were introduced over the years are reported.
