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.
Xerostomia is defined as the subjective complaint of dry mouth. Symptoms of dry mouth may range from mild oral discomfort to significant oral disease that can compromise patients' health, dietary intake and quality of life. Xerostomia is accompanied by numerous signs and symptoms mainly in the mucous membranes, lips, tongue, salivary glands and teeth. This study was designed to verify efficacy and safety of a novel dietary supplement (Aqualief),designed with the aim of stabilizing the saliva flux and pH at a neutral level and to improve the acid buffering capacity of saliva.
The aim of the study was to evaluate short- and long-term changes in QoL in patients undergoing TAVI and to assess differences in patient QoL when using the TAVI TAo approach compared with the transfemoral approach (TAVI TF) and surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).
The aims of this study are: To compare salivary pH changes and stimulation efficacy of two different Gustatory Stimulants of Salivation (GSSS) in patients with Primary Sjögren Syndrome (PSS); To evaluate Primary Sjögren syndrome (PSS) impact and gustatory stimulants of salivary secretion (GSSS) on oral health related quality of life measured by a Portuguese version of Oral Health Impact Profile-14 (OHIP-14) and specific Xerostomia assessment questionnaires. The Products to be used are the Xeros® Dentaid system and a citric based mouthwash.
Physical exercise is considered an important intervention for promoting well-being and healthy aging. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effects of moderate-to-high intensity resistance training circuit on different parameters of fat mass, functional autonomy, strength and quality of life in elderly. A randomized controlled trial was conducted. A total of 45 subjects, (27 females, 18 males) aged between 65-75 years old from Murcia (Spain) were randomly to experimental group (resistance training circuit for 12-weeks and isocaloric diet program) and control group (no resistance training intervention). Fat mass, functional autonomy, muscular strength, perceived exertion, and quality of life perception were obtained with validated tools. Experimental group decreases significantly their fat mass percentage whilst control group not presented differences. Muscular strength results exhibited significant differences between intervention training protocol. Furthermore, experimental group presented better marks than control group at quality of life questionnaire and functional autonomy scores. The moderate-to-high intensity resistance training circuit showed increase in upper and lower muscular strength as well as functional capacity and significantly decreased total fat mass and that improvements in physical function predict improvements in QoL perception in elderly.
Heart failure (HF) is a major public health problem. This is the first cause of hospitalization and mortality of about 65 years old. This syndrome is characterized by a poor prognosis and a high cost of care. Thus, new strategies for treatment and prevention of the HF are among the major challenges facing health sciences today. The management of HF requires multimodal approach it involves a combination of non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment, Besides improvements in pharmacological treatment, supervised exercise programs are recommended for all patients with HF as part of a non-pharmacological management but many questions regarding exercise training in HF patients remain unanswered. Even simple questions such as the best mode of training for these patients are unclear. The aim of this study 1. First, to characterize the physiological functions involved in the genesis of exercise intolerance and dyspnea especially muscle function (respiratory and skeletal), and cardiopulmonary patients suffering from chronic HF. 2. Second, to study and compare the effects of different rehabilitation programs and prove the superiority of the combination of three training modalities program: aerobic training (AT), resistance training (RT) and inspiratory muscle training (IMT). These modalities are: Aerobic Training: It has been proven effective in improving muscle abnormalities on changing the ventricular remodeling, dyspnea, functional capacity, increasing the maximum performance and reducing hospitalization in subjects suffering HF. Resistance Training: It has been proven effective in improving skeletal muscle metabolism and angiogenesis; increasing capillary density and blood flow to the active skeletal muscles, promoting the synthesis and release of nitric oxide, and decreasing oxidative stress. Selective Inspiratory Muscle Training: It has been proven effective in improving the strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles and reduction of dyspnea during daily activities.
The investigators attend to conduct a prospective randomized study to assess safety and efficacy of trigonal-involved vs. trigonal-sparing botox injection technique, quality of life measurement and post-injection anticholinergics use efficacy. Assessing safety by identification of side effects like constipation, urine retention....etc. efficacy is measured using Over Active Bladder Symptoms Score(OABSS) and urodynamics measures after 6 months follow up.
The main objective was to determine the efficacy and safety of a therapeutic exercise program for students. Secondary objectives, determine the prevalence and intensity of musculoskeletal pain (MSP), disability, Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL), and satisfaction and perceived improvement with program.
Aim: To assess the influence of pelvic floor muscles group training in the quality of life and functionality of these muscles in women with UI. Study design: This is a randomized controlled trial.
An intervention study was designed to examine the impact of impact of community home-based care intervention on mental health and treatment outcome in HIV-positive people. The intervention comprised a home-based counseling on anti-retroviral therapy (ART) adherence, psycho social support, basic health care services at the home of HIV-positive people. The intervention started in March, 2018 and completed in August 2018. The major measurements of the interventions were ART adherence, status of depression, anxiety, and stress levels.
