A new method, comparative keyword analysis, is used to compare the language of men and women with cancer in 97 research interviews and two popular internet based support groups for people with cancer. The method is suited to the conjoint qualitative and quantitative analysis of differences between large bodies of text
One of the most aggressive phenomena in biology is the growth of cancer cells. In this paper we propose a simple model to simulate the growth of carcinoma i n situ , which includes cell proliferation, motility and death, as well as the reciprocal influence among cells. Every simulated growth pattern is characterized by its gyration radius, surface roughness, number of cells on tumour...
2007 and 2018. Pubmed and EMBASE databases were searched using specific keyword combinations related to head and neck cancer, circulating samples (whole blood, plasma or serum) and microRNA. Following the title and abstract review, two primary authors appraised the articles for their suitability to include in the review
Objectives This review assessed the complex longitudinal processes involved in cancer etiology during life course to understand how the social inequality may be embodied in and influence cancer risk. Methods A narrative literature review was performed with a keyword search conducted using PubMed
interventions for women following breast cancer surgery.
A comprehensive literature search was undertaken using keyword and subject headings within 7 databases. Included studies employed a quantitative methodology presenting empirical findings focusing on interventions for female breast cancer
review of published studies investigating this association.Using the keyword “Fatigue AND Catastrophizing”, we performed a search in PubMed, SCOPUS, PsycINFO, and EMBASE.Fourteen studies were reviewed and all except one were found to provide empirical support for an association between high catastrophizing and high fatigue
Objectives To explore current evidence of the physiological embedding of stress to discuss whether adverse childhood experiences (ACE) causing chronic or acute stress responses may alter fundamental biological functions. Methods A non-systematic review of the literature was carried out using keyword
Long-term survival can be obtained with local treatment of lung metastases from colorectal cancer. However, it is unclear as to what the optimal local therapy is: surgery, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT).A systematic review included 27 studies matching with the a priori selection criteria, the most important being ⩾50 patients and a follow-up period of ⩾24months....
BACKGROUND:Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have increased cancer risks. The authors reported nonlinear associations of cancer with triglyceride and other lipids in T2DM. Crosstalk between lipid metabolism and the renin‐angiotensin system may increase cancer risk via activation of insulin‐like growth factor‐1 pathway in T2DM. In this analysis, the authors explored associations of cancer...
The aim of this study was to investigate if the expression of endothelin (ET), a vasoactive peptide, in cancerous oesophageal lesions, adjacent dysplastic tissue and normal mucosa might be prognostic. Tissue samples from a total of 101 patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma were obtained and stained with ET antibody in an immunohistochemical analysis. High staining levels of ET within normal...
. Fragestellung: Neueste epidemiologische Studien zeigen weltweit Defizite in der pädiatrisch-onkologischen Schmerztherapie auf. Epidemiologische Daten zu Art, Umfang und Qualität der Schmerztherapie in der deutschen Kinderonkologie fehlen. Methodik: Im Rahmen eines bundesweiten Qualitätsmanagementprogramms (STOP) der Gesellschaft für Pädiatrische Onkologie und Hämatologie (GPOH) wurden mittels...
Bei der Entscheidung über lebenserhaltende oder -verlängernde Maßnahmen bei Patientinnen mit infauster Prognose in Folge von Karzinomerkrankungen steht der Arzt vor einem ethischen und rechtlichen Dilemma. Durch rechtzeitig geführte und dokumentierte Gespräche mit der Patientin kann er ihr Selbstbestimmungsrecht wahren und zusammen mit ihr empfehlende Festlegungen formulieren. Im Übrigen muss er sich...
Aims/hypothesis. The aim of this study was to examine the possible link between isolated post-challenge hyperglycaemia (2-h post-challenge plasma glucose ≥ 11.1 mmol/l, and fasting plasma glucose < 7.0 mmol/l) and mortality. Methods. The data from three population based longitudinal studies (in Mauritius, Fiji and Nauru) were pooled and mortality rates were determined in 9179 people who were...
characteristics in various cancers. However, the validities of these claims are still in question. To address these experimental results, a meta‐analysis was done to assess the prognostic and clinicopathological significance of LOXL2 expression in various cancers.
The keywords were used for
cancer itself, and the physical stress of cancer surgery, systemic anti-neoplastic therapy, and radiation treatment. TCM is becoming increasingly recognized among patients with cancer and has been associated with adverse outcomes in this patient population. In this study, we searched the Pubmed database using keywords
cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Methods Online databases were searched to detect relevant publications up to January 2018, using relevant keywords. To pool data, either fixed-effects or random-effects model was used. Furthermore, linear and non-linear dose–response analyses were also done. Results In total, five
Web of Science databases were searched between January 1995 up to and including July 2016 using the keywords “oral cancer,” “pharyngeal cancer,” “pharyngeal neoplasms,” “oral neoplasms,” “occupational disease,” “occupational exposure,” and “occupational risk factor” in various combinations. Letters to the Editor, review
, Embase, Medline, and CINAHL were searched using Medical Subject Heading keywords ‘cancer’ AND ‘anxiety’ AND ‘psychological intervention’ AND ‘counselling’ AND ‘psycho*’ AND ‘psychotherapy’ AND ‘psychosocial’ AND ‘therapy
Purpose Hypoxia is a major regulator of angiogenesis and always influences the release of exosomes in various types of tumors. The present review aimed to assess the role of hypoxia-induced exosomes in the tumor biology. Methods The relevant publications were retrieved from PubMed using keywords such as
