PURPOSE: Depressive symptoms of patients with intracranial tumors need to be assessed adequately. The Patient Health Questionnaire for Depression and Anxiety (PHQ-4) is an ultra-short screening tool consisting of four items, a cutoff of six indicates depressive symptoms. The aim was to assess patients' psychological burden by the PHQ-4 compared with the results of well-established screening instruments. METHODS: Patients were screened three times after primary diagnosis postoperatively (t1), after 3 (t2) and 6 (t3) months using the PHQ-4, the Hornheide Screening Instrument (HSI), the NCCN Distress Thermometer (DT), and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Core Questionnaire with its brain module (EORTC QLQ-C30 + BN20)...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to assess whether prostate cancer survivors who received a behavioral intervention to urinary incontinence had experienced a significant mood improvement. METHODS: One hundred fifty-three prostate cancer survivors with persistent incontinence were included in this secondary data analysis. They were randomly assigned to usual care or interventions that provided pelvic floor muscle exercises and self-management skills. All subjects had measures of anxiety, depression, and anger at baseline, 3 months (post-intervention), and 6 months (follow-up)...

Throughout the cancer continuum, patients are faced with the cancer- and treatment-related side effects that can have a negative impact on their overall quality of life. Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) and sleep deficiency are among the symptoms that patients and their caregivers most often experience. An increasing body of literature suggests that a strong correlation between CRF and sleep deficiency exists, indicating that they may be reciprocally related and that they may have similar underlying etiology. This paper aims at bringing together the opinions of leading cancer control (i...

PURPOSE: Despite survival rates greater than 90%, treatment for paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) remains challenging for families. The early post-treatment phase is an especially unique time of adjustment. The primary aim of this review was to identify and synthesise research on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) for patients up to five years post-treatment. The secondary aim was to identify if theorised risk/resistance model factors could explain any variance in reported HRQoL...

PURPOSE: Previous findings have shown that depression in advanced stages of cancer is associated with hopelessness and frequently with wishes for hastened death. The current study tries to investigate the relationship between hopelessness and desire for hastened death and if depression may be a moderator and/or mediator role in patients with advanced cancer. METHOD: The participants were 102 patients with advanced cancer which they completed the Beck Hopelessness Scale (BHS), the Greek Schedule of Attitudes towards Hastened Death (G-SAHD), and the Greek Beck Depression Inventory (BDI)...

PURPOSE: The diagnosis of a terminal disease bears existential challenges, which activate the attachment system. Attachment insecurity, as well as existential resources, such as spiritual well-being, influences patients' extent of psychological distress. Knowledge about the interrelation of these constructs is limited. Based on current research, we assume spiritual well-being to mediate the association of attachment insecurity and psychological distress. METHODS: We obtained data from the baseline measurement of a randomized controlled trial in advanced cancer patients...

Thrombocytopenia is a condition characterized by abnormally low levels of thrombocytes and often induced by chemotherapy. Recombinant human interleukin-11 (rhIL-11) is a cytokine that can stimulate thrombopoiesis and is commonly used to treat thrombocytopenia. We observed the side effects of rhIL-11 in 24 leukemia patients with chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia. To determine the cardiovascular effects of rhIL-11, we detected changes in the patients' serum brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), blood pressure fluctuations, weight change, and whether edema or heart failure occurred in leukemia patients after chemotherapy...

The objective of this review is to provide an update on prognostication in patients with advanced cancer and to discuss future directions for research in this field. Accurate prognostication of survival for patients with advanced cancer is vital, as patient life expectancy informs many important personal and clinical decisions. The most common prognostic approach is clinician prediction of survival (CPS) using temporal, surprise, or probabilistic questions. The surprise and probabilistic questions may be more accurate than the temporal approach, partly by limiting the time frame of prediction...
