BACKGROUND: Fatigue, stress and pain are common symptoms among cancer patients, affecting the quality of life. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of distant Reiki on pain, anxiety and fatigue in oncology patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Participants in the control group received usual medical and nursing care during their stay. The intervention group received usual care plus five distant Reiki sessions, one each night for 30 min. A face to face interview was performed and patient personal and illness related characteristics were evaluated using the Patient Characteristics form...

BACKGROUND: There is little information about the impact of breast cancer subtype on prognosis after ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR). METHODS: One hundred eighty-five patients were classified according to breast cancer subtype, as approximated by estrogen receptor, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), and Ki-67, of IBTR, and we evaluated whether breast cancer subtype was associated with distant recurrence after IBTR. RESULTS: There was a significant difference in distant disease-free survival (DDFS) after IBTR according to breast cancer subtype defined by a cutoff of the Ki-67 index of 20 % (p = 0...

OBJECTIVES: The study objective was to determine whether Reiki practice increases the electromagnetic field strength from the heart and hands of Reiki practitioners. RATIONALE: This study repeated experiments performed 20 years ago that detected exceptionally high-strength electromagnetic fields (100 nT) from the hands of several energy healers. The equipment used was far more sensitive than in the original studies. DESIGN: Using a Magnes 2500 WH SQUID, the electromagnetic field from the hands and heart of each of 3 Reiki masters was measured when they were (1) not practicing Reiki, (2) sending Reiki to a distant person, and (3) sending Reiki to a person in the room...

INTRODUCTION: Approximately 25% of all babies in North America are delivered via Caesarean section (C-section). Though a common surgical procedure, C-section recovery can be painful. Opioids, specifically codeine, are commonly used to ease pain; however, its active metabolite, morphine, passes into breast milk, and may produce unwanted side effects in neonates; therefore, alternatives to opioids are being sought. Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of healing where practitioners transfer healing energy through light touch and positive healing intention...

BACKGROUND: In breast cancer, ER/PgR, HER2, and Ki-67 are important biological markers for predicting prognosis and making effective treatment decisions. In addition, changes in markers due to relapse are also clinically experienced; however, the frequency and clinical significance are still not fully understood. Thus, changes in markers and their correlations with prognosis were investigated. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Out of the patients with relapse from 1997 to March 2011, there were 97 consecutive patients from whom the lesion was resected and evaluated by immunostaining...

OBJECTIVE: Fibromyalgia is a common, chronic pain condition for which patients frequently use complementary and alternative medicine, including Reiki. Our objective was to determine whether Reiki is beneficial as an adjunctive fibromyalgia treatment. DESIGN: This was a factorial designed, randomized, sham-controlled trial in which participants, data collection staff, and data analysts were blinded to treatment group. SETTING/LOCATION: The study setting was private medical offices in the Seattle, Washington metropolitan area...

REVIEW
M S Lee, M H Pittler, E Ernst
INTRODUCTION: The aim of this systematic review is to summarise and critically evaluate the evidence for the effectiveness of reiki. METHODS: We searched the literature using 23 databases from their respective inceptions through to November 2007 (search again 23 January 2008) without language restrictions. Methodological quality was assessed using the Jadad score. RESULTS: The searches identified 205 potentially relevant studies. Nine randomised clinical trials (RCTs) met our inclusion criteria...

BACKGROUND: The most important issue in breast-conserving surgery is avoidance of ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR). We have investigated the factors related to the period between surgery and recurrence and the measures taken. SUBJECT AND METHODS: From April 1989 to December 2004, 888 cases (excluding cases who underwent neoadjuvant chemotherapy) of breast-conserving surgery were performed. IBTR occurred in 56 of these cases. We investigated the timing of these recurrences...

BACKGROUND: The clinical features of ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) after breast conserving therapy (BCT) for early stage breast cancer were analyzed from long-term follow-up of BCT in Japan. The purpose of this study was to clarify risk factors of IBTR and the impact of IBTR on development of distant metastases in this ethnic group. METHODS: Patients (N = 1901)with unilateral breast cancer < or = 3 cm in diameter who underwent BCT at 18 Japanese major breast cancer treatment institutes from 1986 to 1993 were registered in this study...

BACKGROUND: Ipsilateral breast tumor recurrences (IBTR) after breast-conserving treatment include two different entities: true recurrence (TR) thought to occur when residual cancer cells grow gradually to detectable size and new primary (NP) thought to be de novo cancer independently arising in the preserved breast. The patients with ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) are potentially at high risk for subsequent distant metastasis, but many studies do not distinguish between these types of recurrence...

PURPOSE: Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important factor involved in angiogenesis. Many studies have reported that the expression of VEGF in breast cancer is an unfavorable prognostic factor. However, there are few studies that have analyzed blood VEGF levels because most used serum VEGF, generally thought to originate from platelets. We measured plasma VEGF levels, which evaluate the level of tumor-derived VEGF, in various breast diseases. METHOD: We analyzed 15 patients with benign breast disease, 187 patients with primary breast cancer, 32 patients with no postoperative recurrence, and 56 patients with recurrence...

BACKGROUND: The usefulness of primary chemotherapy has been widely recognized and applied to routine clinical practice to improve prognosis by downstaging. Nevertheless, none of many trials has been able to show a positive effect of primary chemotherapy in terms of prognosis, and predictive factors of outcome have not been defined and are still under investigation. METHODS: Primary chemotherapy was given to 50 patients with advanced breast cancer. Predictive factors involved in clinical or pathological response to primary chemotherapy (3 cycles of CE(F) therapy ) were investigated...
