PURPOSE: Evidence suggests that partners of men with prostate cancer (CaP) experience greater psychosocial distress compared with men themselves. However, the experiences of partners of high-risk (1 in 4) Black African (BA) and Black Caribbean (BC) men with CaP remain poorly understood as existing research has predominantly focused on Caucasian populations. This study aimed to address this gap by exploring partners' experience and support needs as influenced both by the specific impacts of CaP, treatment side effects and socio-cultural context...

SIGNIFICANCE: Poor sleep quality is a common and persistent problem reported by women with breast cancer (BC). Empirical evidence identifies many risk factors for self-reported sleep deficiency, but inconsistencies limit translation to practice. PURPOSE: To increase understanding of risk factors predicting self-reported poor sleep quality in women with BC who completed the Breast Cancer Collaborative Registry (BCCR) questionnaire. METHODS: This cross-sectional study recruited women with a first diagnosis of BC (n = 1302) at five sites in Nebraska and South Dakota...

PURPOSE: Vena cava syndrome (VCS) from stenosis of the superior vena cava or inferior vena cava caused by compression from a malignant tumor is one of the typical clinical conditions in patients with advanced stage malignant disease. VCS is difficult to manage and painful, reducing patients' quality of life. Although several reports have investigated stent placement for VCS, this treatment has never been established as the standard because of the lack of evidence of the safety and efficacy...

PURPOSE: This study evaluates the effect of an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS)-based nutrition support protocol on oral intake and weight change in patients who underwent pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD). METHODS: A 14-day postoperative nutrition support protocol was developed to initiate oral intake after 1 week of enteral tube feeding and parenteral nutrition (early oral feeding, EOF). Forty-eight patients who underwent PPPD participated in the study (non-EOF, n = 23; EOF, n = 25)...

PURPOSE: Perioperative oral care is effective for the prevention and reduction of complications following surgery. However, oral cancer patients' oral health is often poor. During hospitalization, oral cancer patients frequently receive oral care from ward nurses as well as professional oral care from dental hygienists. Maintenance of good oral hygiene in these patients ideally requires cooperation between nurses and dental hygienists. Consequently, communication tools used to share information about the status of patients' oral health are needed...

PURPOSE: Recent studies suggested that olanzapine, together with dexamethasone and serotonin-3 receptor antagonist (5HT3RA), is effective in preventing chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) following highly emetogenic chemotherapy (HEC). This regimen is particularly useful in Southeast Asia (SEA) countries where resources are limited. We aimed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of incorporating olanzapine into standard antiemetic regimens for the prevention of CINV in patients receiving HEC among SEA countries...

Busulfan is a major component of chemotherapy conditioning in hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). This alkylating agent is highly toxic at myeloablative doses, exposing HCT patients to risks of mortality. Non-myeloablative (NMA) and reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) using busulfan have shown impaired toxicity. However, the toxicity of NMA/RIC in the digestive tract is poorly described. This study aimed to characterize the mucositis in the oral cavity (OM), oropharynx/esophagus, and gastrointestinal tract derived from conditionings with myeloablative and non-myeloablative doses of busulfan...

PURPOSE: Several cut-off points for trismus in head and neck cancer patients have been used. A mouth opening of 35 mm or less is most frequently used as cut-off point. Due to the variation in cut-off points, prevalence, risk factors and treatment outcomes of trismus cannot be studied in a uniform manner. To provide uniformity, we aimed to verify the cut-off point of 35 mm or less. Additionally, we aimed to determine associated covariates with reported difficulties when opening the mouth...

PURPOSE: Patient navigation has emerged as a promising strategy in reducing disparities among diverse cancer patients. However, little is known about navigators' own perspectives on their roles in providing culturally competent care. The purpose of the present study is to describe these self-identified roles. METHODS: Data were collected from an online survey with a convenience sample of cancer patient navigators. Using NVivo 10, qualitative content analysis was conducted on free text responses to the question: "In your opinion, what is the role of a patient navigator or nurse navigator in the provision of culturally sensitive care to patients?" Frequencies of each navigator-identified role mentioned were tabulated...

PURPOSE: Breast-cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) can be a transient or persistent condition. The aims of this study were to (1) identify and weigh the risk factors for persistent lymphedema (PLE) among all patients with BCRL and (2) establish a prediction model for the occurrence of PLE. METHODS: A cohort of 342 patients with BCRL with a median follow-up of 5 years after the onset of swelling was analyzed. PLE was defined as a hardening of the subcutaneous tissue, the persistence of the circumferential difference (CD) between arms, or a flare-up of swelling during follow-up...

PURPOSE: Explore clinical factors associated with higher pain intensity and future pain in patients with bone metastases to identify patients who can benefit from closer follow-up or pain-modifying interventions. METHODS: This is a secondary analysis of 606 patients with bone metastases included in a multicenter longitudinal study. The dependent variables were "average pain" and "worst pain" in the last 24 h (0-10 NRS). Twenty independent variables with potential association to pain intensity were selected based on previous literature...

PURPOSE: Optimal primary febrile neutropenia (FN) prophylaxis (i.e. ciprofloxacin or granulocyte-colony stimulating factors [G-CSF]) for patients receiving docetaxel-cyclophosphamide (TC) chemotherapy is unknown. We assessed the feasibility of using a novel pragmatic comparative effectiveness trial to compare these standard-of-care options. METHODS: Early-stage breast cancer patients receiving TC chemotherapy were randomised to either ciprofloxacin or G-CSF. Trial methodology consists of broad eligibility criteria, simply-defined endpoints, integrated consent model incorporating oral consent, and web-based randomisation in the clinic...

PURPOSE: To prevent febrile neutropenia (FN), European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) guidelines recommend primary prophylaxis with granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (PPG) for patients at high risk (≥ 20%) of FN. In Belgium, the use of PPG is restricted by specific reimbursement criteria. The impact of these criteria on PPG use and adherence to guidelines is unknown. METHODS: This multicentre, cross-sectional, observational study aimed to describe PPG use by FN risk category in breast cancer patients who were scheduled to receive myelosuppressive chemotherapy in outpatient clinics in Belgium during a 2-week period between 13 October and 12 December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Compared to non-Hispanic Whites, Hispanic women are more likely to report pain, depression, and other mental health concerns. However, little is known about Hispanic women's use of supportive medications, and whether use differs depending on nativity (US- vs. foreign-born). This study's objectives were to examine patterns of supportive medication use and investigate potential differences by ethnicity/nativity among women with breast cancer. METHODS: We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results data linked with Medicare claims to identify women diagnosed with incident breast cancer between July 1, 2007, and December 31, 2011...

PURPOSE: The triplet antiemetic regimen is recommended for cisplatin-based highly emetogenic chemotherapy, in the current guidelines for antiemetic prophylaxis. Although risk factors related to chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) have been identified by several prior studies, there are only few studies evaluating risk factors associated with the prophylactic triplet antiemetic therapy, particularly in palonosetron use. The present study aimed to reveal the risk factors related to CINV development in patients receiving cisplatin and to compare CINV risk factors between palonosetron and granisetron use...
