OBJECTIVE: Personality psychology has largely ignored the experiences of people with disabilities. This paper strives to bring the thriving, interdisciplinary field of disability studies to personality psychology via a case study of Samantha (N=1). Samantha feels that she grew up as a hearing person who could not hear and is now a deaf person who can hear. METHOD: Narrative identity provides the theoretical, methodological, and analytical framework for the rich, qualitative examination of Samantha's life story, interwoven with approaches from disability studies and intersectionality theory...

Interaction between tumour and host triggers a systemic inflammatory response. This situation has been associated to cancer progression. Several peripheral blood inflammatory scores have been recently developed, as PLR. Data about the relationship between these scores and cancer prognosis are contradictory. Therefore, the aim of our work is to evaluate the capability of PLR to predict long-term outcomes (OS and RFS) in patients who underwent curative surgery for colon cancer. A retrospective study was designed with patients who underwent curative surgery for colon cancer between September 2008 and January 2012 at Rio Hortega University Hospital, Valladolid (Spain)...
