Two-year toxicity and quality of life (QOL) results are reported from a dose-escalated prostate SABR study for high-risk prostate cancer. Prostate, seminal vesicles, and pelvic lymph nodes were treated using a dose-painting schema up to 40Gy and 25Gy in 5 fractions, respectively, delivered weekly, in combination with androgen deprivation therapy. No grade 3 or higher CTCAE v 3.0 toxicity was noted. EPIC quality of life in all 4 domains was comparable to baseline at 24 months.
To better understand patient-reported quality of life (PRQOL) for patients with head and neck cancer, PRQOL scores were collected in a clinical trial.
Metastases with soft tissues invasion, impending fractures or spinal cord compression (complicated bone metastases) represent a common clinical problem in advanced cancers and frequently lead to deterioration of patients' quality of life (QoL). A phase I-II study was planned to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of a short-course radiotherapy (RT) and its efficacy in palliation of complicated bone metastases. A phase I trial was designed with three dose-escalation steps: 16, 18, and 20 Gy. Total dose ...
The QoLKAMON study evaluated quality of life, efficacy and treatment safety in HIV patients receiving lopinavir/ritonavir in monotherapy (MT) versus continuing combined antiretroviral triple treatment with a boosted protease inhibitor (TT).
Our previous trial with a docetaxel, cisplatin, and 5-fluorouracil (DCF) regimen showed high response rates in metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus (SCCE). The observed increased toxicity of the DCF regimen, however, was clinically harmful. S-1, an oral anticancer drug, has been approved as a combination therapy for SCCE, and alternate-day regimen with S-1 has shown lower levels of toxicity. This prospective single-center phase I/II trial examines the efficacy and toxicity of a combination of...
Aflibercept combined with FOLFIRI (folinic acid, 5-fluorouracil, irinotecan) as second-line treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) significantly improved survival compared with FOLFIRI alone in the pivotal VELOUR (aflibercept vs. placebo in combination with irinotecan and 5-fluorouracil in the treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer after failure of an oxaliplatin-based regimen) trial. No quality-of-life assessment was performed in VELOUR; therefore, the ASQoP (Aflibercept Safety a...
LBA-001Efficacy, tolerability and impact on quality of life of selective internal radiation therapy (with yttrium-90 resin microspheres) or sorafenib in patients with locally advanced hepatocellular carcinoma: The SARAH trial.
Omalizumab has demonstrated therapeutic benefits both in controlled clinical trials and real-life studies. However, research concerning the long-term effects and tolerability of omalizumab is needed. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of treatment with omalizumab for up to 5 years.
For advanced cancer patients deliberating early clinical trial participation, adequate information about expected effect on quality of life (HRQoL) and hope, may support decision making. The aim was to assess the potential relation of HRQoL to eligibility for phase-I trial participation, and to observe the variations in patient-reported outcomes. Patients completed questionnaires at preconsent (n = 124), baseline (n = 96), and after first evaluation of a phase-I trial (n = 76). The Mann-Whitney U test...
Swallowing and swallowing-related quality of life studies following stroke were almost always performed by including both patients with brainstem and cortical involvement. It was aimed in this study to show the presence of dysphagia in patients with only cortical ischemic stroke and to investigate the interaction between dysphagia and quality of life as well as to evaluate the effect of a rehabilitation program in the acute phase. Seventy-two patients with cortical stroke (between 0 and 30 days) and dyspha...
This is the first report on a trial using a Kit D816V targeting drug in indolent systemic mastocytosis. The results indicate midostaurin to be effective in reducing symptom severity and improving quality of life.
Quality of Life, Glycemic Control, Safety and Tolerability Associated with Liraglutide or Insulin Initiation in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes in Germany: Results from the Prospective, Non-interventional LIBERTY Study.
To assess quality of life, glycemic control, and safety/tolerability associated with liraglutide versus insulin initiation in patients with type 2 diabetes in Germany.
This phase 1 study evaluated the safety and tolerability of single intravitreous injections (IVIs) of ICON-1 (Iconic Therapeutics, South San Francisco, CA) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). ICON-1 is a modified factor VIIa protein linked with the Fc portion of a human immunoglobulin G1. The molecule binds tissue factor overexpressed on choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in AMD.
As a subjective measure, quality of life should not be used as a trigger for discussing resuscitation, goals of care or advanced care plans. Limitations and challenges in measurement and assessment of quality of life have been recognised. It is a fluid construct and subject to changes and response shifts. Surrogate quality of life estimations may misrepresent individual worth and self-perceived quality of life. Disagreement over quality of life statements may cause harm.
Predicting the Benefits of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention on 1-Year Angina and Quality of Life in Stable Ischemic Heart Disease: Risk Models From the COURAGE Trial (Clinical Outcomes Utilizing Revascularization and Aggressive Drug Evaluation).
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a therapy to reduce angina and improve quality of life in patients with stable ischemic heart disease. However, it is unclear whether the quality of life after PCI is more dependent on the PCI or other patient-related factors. To address this question, we created models to predict angina and quality of life 1 year after PCI and medical therapy.
Polyethylene glycol (PEG) bowel preparations are widely used for precolonoscopy bowel cleansing. This phase 3 trial assessed the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of the novel 1 L PEG-based NER1006 vs. sodium picosulfate plus magnesium citrate (SP + MC) in day-before dosing.
Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) significantly impacts health-related quality of life (HRQOL). This post hoc analysis of two phase III trials evaluated the effects of eluxadoline treatment on disease-specific HRQOL among patients with IBS-D.
Obesity is an entity of highly prevalent multifactorial origin with associated metabolic and psychological comorbidity, causing a negative impact on the quality of life of those who suffer from it. The objective is to evaluate the impact of an interdisciplinary program for nurse-led obesity on quality of life related to health and anxiety.
Oligometastatic disease has emerged as a potentially curable state in the spectrum of cancer progression. Aggressive local therapy such as stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR) may improve oncologic outcomes. Herein, we report the initial oncologic outcomes and patient-reported quality of life (PR-QoL) from a phase II multi-center trial for patients with oliogmetastatic disease.
SBRT is an emerging option for localized prostate cancer. However, there are no standard dosimetric guidelines and normal tissue tolerances for extreme hypofractionation are not well defined. We analyzed dosimetric correlations with patient-reported urinary and bowel quality of life (QOL) on a prospective trial.
This randomised clinical trial aimed to compare the impact of two different tooth replacement strategies for partially dentate older patients namely; removable partial dentures (RPDs) and functionally orientated treatment based on the shortened dental arch (SDA) concept, on Oral Health-related Quality of Life (OHrQOL).
In a previous randomized controlled trial it has been demonstrated that arm compression sleeves worn immediately after breast cancer surgery, including axillary lymph node removal in addition to physical therapy are able to reduce the occurrence of early postoperative swelling and of arm lymphedema up to 1 year and to improve quality of life. The aim of the present investigation was to check the further development of the arm swelling in patients using compression sleeves or not, and to compare the quality ...
Preclinical evidence indicates that the bone marrow microenvironment provides a protective niche for leukemic stem cells, allowing them to evade the effects of BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), but that targeting of the JAK-STAT pathway with the JAK2 inhibitor ruxolitinib increases TKI-induced apoptosis. A phase I clinical trial (NCT01702064) investigated the tolerability and safety of treating chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia patients with ruxolitinib in combination with the BCR-ABL TKI nilo...
Chronic axial low-back pain is a debilitating disorder that impacts all aspects of an afflicted individual's life. Effective, durable treatments have historically been elusive. Interventional therapies, such as spinal cord stimulation (SCS), have shown limited efficacy at best. Recently, a novel treatment, 10 kHz SCS, has demonstrated superior pain relief compared with traditional SCS in a randomized controlled trial (RCT). In this manuscript, we report on the long-term improvements in quality of life (QoL...
Herpes zoster (HZ) and its related complications are associated with significant medical burden, which negatively impacts patients' quality-of-life (QoL) and daily functioning. The recently licensed recombinant zoster vaccine (RZV) offers high efficacy, but is associated with local and systemic reactions.
