DATA SOURCES: Primary research and review articles identified through CINAHL, PubMed, and PsycINFO databases. CONCLUSION: Several studies have investigated interventions for multi-symptom management or have evaluated the secondary effects of a single-symptom intervention on related symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: To review existing exercise guidelines for cancer patients and survivors for the management of symptom clusters. DATA SOURCES: Review of PubMed literature and published exercise guidelines. CONCLUSION: Cancer and its treatments are responsible for a copious number of incapacitating symptoms that markedly impair quality of life. The exercise oncology literature provides consistent support for the safety and efficacy of exercise interventions in managing cancer- and treatment-related symptoms, as well as improving quality of life in cancer patients and survivors...

OBJECTIVE: To report evidence regarding assessment methods and management strategies for symptom clusters among children and adolescents with cancer. DATA SOURCES: Published research and clinical guidelines. CONCLUSION: Although a number of studies have identified multiple co-occurring symptoms in children and adolescents with cancer, only a few have included analyses aimed at identifying symptom clusters. Evidence is limited for symptom cluster management strategies...

Christine Miaskowski
OBJECTIVES: To consider future directions for symptom cluster research. These considerations are organized using the two main conceptual approaches for symptom cluster research (ie, "de novo" identification of symptom clusters, and identification of subgroups of patients with distinct symptom experiences with a prespecified symptom cluster). DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed journals and guidelines from professional organizations. CONCLUSION: Research on symptom clusters in oncology patients is growing at an exponential rate...

OBJECTIVES: Identification of biologic pathways of symptom clusters is necessary to develop precision therapies for distressing symptoms. This review examined extant literature evaluating relationships between biomarkers and symptom clusters in cancer survivors. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, CINAHL, Web of Science and Cochrane Library were searched using terms "biological markers" or "biomarkers" and "symptom cluster" or "symptom complex" or "multiple symptoms." CONCLUSION: Biomarkers related to inflammation (eg, cytokines) were the most studied and showed the most significant relationships with clusters of symptoms...

Andrea Barsevick
OBJECTIVES: To examine the evolution of the concept of the symptom cluster through literature synthesis and identify knowledge gaps. DATA SOURCES: Published literature. CONCLUSION: A robust body of research has developed showing that clusters of symptoms can be identified empirically with modest evidence of convergence across methods. The science would benefit from a coordinated effort of qualitative studies to ensure that appropriate symptoms are evaluated; empirical symptom cluster identification studies building upon qualitative work; and subgroup identification studies based on empirically defined symptom clusters...

Mary E Cooley, Mary Lou Siefert
OBJECTIVES: To discuss multiple co-occurring cancer symptoms, review symptom assessment instruments, identify innovative methods to integrate symptom assessment and management in the clinical setting, and examine barriers and facilitators for implementation of symptom assessment and use of clinical practice guidelines. DATA SOURCES: Peer-reviewed articles, guidelines, systematic reviews, and web-based resources. CONCLUSION: Despite the availability of brief, reliable, and valid instruments, symptom assessment has not been integrated as a routine aspect of clinical care...

#9
REVIEW
Yin Cao, Edward L Giovannucci
OBJECTIVE: To summarize epidemiologic evidence of alcohol as a risk factor for many types of cancers and discuss available resources to help patients reduce alcohol intake. DATA SOURCES: Published epidemiologic literature and resources available for alcohol reduction. CONCLUSION: Heavy alcohol intake has been linked to increased risk of several cancers, including cancer of the colon, rectum, female breast, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, liver, and esophagus; whereas light-to-moderate drinking (up to one drink per day for women and up to two drinks per day for men) is not appreciably associated with cancer risk and may be beneficial for cardiovascular disease...

REVIEW
Lodovico Balducci
OBJECTIVES: To examine the current information about primary and secondary cancer prevention measures in older individuals. DATA SOURCES: Literature review of evidence-based resources on aging and cancer prevention. CONCLUSION: Aging is a risk factor for the development of malignancy. Older tissues are particularly prone to the action of environmental carcinogens; primary prevention of cancer through the adoption of healthy lifestyles and the appropriate implementation of secondary cancer prevention measures could potentially reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with malignancy...
