At present, it is unclear why some myelodysplastic patients (MDS) receiving blood transfusion therapy exhibit an increase in Hemoglobin (Hb) without a concurrent improvement in fatigue. Research is thus required to elucidate on why fatigue persists in some MDS patients in order to devise strategies to alleviate fatigue in "non-responders" to blood transfusion.
Multivitamins (MVi) are broadly used by cancer patients to improve overall health and energy. Fatigue is a common symptom in cancer patients including those receiving radiation therapy. We conducted a trial of MVi versus placebo in patients with breast cancer (BC) undergoing radiation therapy (Rxt) to evaluate if MVi would affect fatigue and quality of life. We randomized patients at the beginning of Rxt treatment to either placebo or Centrum Silver® (Wyeth-Whitehall labora...
The purpose of this study is to determine how best to manage the sleep problems of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This study is being conducted to determine how improvements in sleep affect other Chronic Fatigue symptoms including pain, fatigue, and mood as well as a person's sense of general well-being.
Despite the large therapeutic arsenal available since one decade allowing a strong reduction of inflammation process, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients claimed pain, fatigue, sleep problems and other quality of life outcomes. Fatigue reduction during TNF blockers therapy is lower than the strong reduction in RA disease activity. Furthermore, RA patients have higher prevalence of non-inflammatory pain than general population. Fatigue is a real major problem due to 50% of patien...
The purpose of this study is to assess whether a brief cognitive behavioural intervention for post-stroke fatigue leads to clinically relevant improvements in fatigue after 6 months.
Cancer related fatigue (CRF) is the most debilitating problem for patients with haematological cancer. CRF severely reduces quality of life (QoL), functional capacity, impacts health behavior, recovery and furthermore no approved treatment exists. In solid cancer methylphenidat (MTP) has been suggested to improve CRF, however patients with haematological cancer has not been studied. The current randomized placebo controlled study includes a variety of severely fatigued haematol...
Primary Objectives: - To determine whether fatigue improves as patients are treated for febrile neutropenia (Day #1, Day #2 and Day #6). Secondary Objectives: - To identify clinical factors associated in cancer patients with low risk for outpatient treatment of febrile neutropenia on either outpatient febrile neutropenia treatment pathway presenting with moderate to severe fatigue. Moderate fatigue is defined as a score of 4 through 6 o...
The overall goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of a testosterone drug called Depo-Testosterone (or 'testosterone cypionate'), an FDA-approved drug for improving fatigue, sexual function, quality of life, body composition, muscle strength, and physical activity in young cancer survivors who report fatigue and have low testosterone. Main hypothesis is that Testosterone administration in young male cancer survivors who are in remission for at least 1 year, report cancer-...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the evolution and possible factors associated with the persistence of fatigue in patients with quiescent IBD and fatigue included in two previous studies.
This study will evaluate, in a primary care setting, the effectiveness of a brief self-management behavioral treatment in patients with medically unexplained chronic fatigue. The hypothesis will be tested that fatigue self-management will yield improvements in fatigue,functioning, and distress in comparison to the two control conditions: standard medical care alone or standard medical care plus an attention control symptom monitoring condition.
The purpose of this study is to examine the degree of fatigue in patients receiving chemotherapy. Special interest goes out to the course of fatigue throughout five treatments and the actions taken by patients to reduce this fatigue.The correlation between fatigue and haemoglobin will also be subject of study.
The goal of this research study is to learn what it is like when a patient with cancer has fatigue, as well as how these patients define fatigue. Researchers want to use this information to create questionnaires that may more accurately measure fatigue and its effects in patients with cancer.
The aim of the present observational study is to evaluate and describe the evolution over time of the fatigue and the quality of life of patients with bone tumor, in Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute, Chemotherapy ward, during the chemotherapy treatment and in the first phase of follow-up and to identify possible prognostic factors. Such knowledge is a necessary precondition for identifying patients and the periods most at risk due to the onset of fatigue, so as to be able to hypoth...
Cancer related fatigue (CRF) is one of the most prevalent and distressing long-term complaints reported by (non-) Hodgkin survivors. The SPARKLE study will test the efficacy of two intensities of light therapy on cancer related fatigue. Additionally, it explores possible working mechanisms of light therapy on CRF including improvements in sleep quality, psychosocial variables (depression, anxiety, cognitive complaints, and quality of life), and changes in biological circadian r...
The relationship between fatigue and balance was established. Fatigue was correlated with 8 parameters of balance scales. Moreover, there was a strong correlation between the level of fatigue from one side and depression, quality of life and disease severity from the other side.Fatigue seems to be the main problem in patients with MS which may influence other signs and symptoms such as balance.
Fatigue, or asthenia, is an important symptom for the diagnosis and follow-up of patients in routine as well as research oriented clinical practice. Various questionnaires measuring fatigue have been developed, but few have been validated in french. MFI (Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory) has been validated in french in only one study. BFI (Brief Fatigue Inventory) has been translated but never validated in french language. The main purpose of this study is to validate...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on neuropathic pain and fatigue in people with MS. The investigators will conduct tDCS or sham on 5 consecutive days. They will evaluate pain and fatigue with specific questionnaires and measure fatigability with an isokinetic device. The research question is whether tDCS can lessen neuropathic pain and increase fatigue resistance in people with MS. It is hypothesized, tha...
Police officers work some of the most demanding schedules known, which increases their risk of sleep deprivation and sleep disorders. The need to work frequent overnight shifts and long work weeks leads to acute and chronic partial sleep deprivation as well as misalignment of circadian phase. The public expects officers to perform flawlessly, but sleep deprivation and unrecognized sleep disorders significantly degrade cognition, alertness, reaction time and performance. In add...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Forsus Fatigue resistant Device appliance with direct skeletal mini plates anchorage is capable of achievement of skeletal mandibular effects while preventing the excessive proclination of the lower incisors at the end of the treatment when compared to the conventional Forsus Fatigue resistant Device appliance applied to the upper and lower dental arches in female patients with skeletal Class II malocclusion
Fatigue is frequently identified as one of the most troublesome symptoms in cancer patients and there are very few conventional therapies which can address the symptom of fatigue in patients who are undergoing cancer treatment. This study will be testing whether the administration of a complementary therapy (individualized homeopathy) to a patient undergoing chemotherapy treatment is feasible and whether this treatment can lessen the fatigue symptoms of adults. The study will ...
Fatigue is one of the most common and distressing symptoms in teenage and young adult cancer patients. Despite this, there has been virtually no research evaluating treatment for cancer-related fatigue in this young patient group. The investigators are undertaking a small qualitative study to co-design a fatigue intervention, that will then be evaluated in future research to assess its effectiveness.
Background: - Researchers have studied the causes of fatigue during treatments for various diseases, but these results have not been conclusive. - More information on the physical changes that affect the body during treatment may help identify biological or chemical factors that contribute to patient fatigue, which may allow physicians to identify individuals who may be more at risk of feeling fatigue before, during, and after treatment for dis...
Fatigue is common and debilitating in rheumatic inflammatory diseases as for other chronical medical conditions. The purpose of this study is to develope and evaluate a cognitive behavioural intervention targeting fatigue. The aim of the intervention is to improve fatigue self-management by changing behavioral and cognitive factors contributing to perceived fatigue. Levels of fatigue, depressive symptoms and self esteem will be measured before, after and three months after the ...
Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of prostate cancer. Fatigue is a lack of energy that makes it harder to do the things you normally do every day. Some symptoms of fatigue are: - feeling tired and/or weak; - having less interest in activities; - having trouble concentrating; - feeling "down"; - feeling exhausted for no clear reason. There are not many drugs that are helpful in treating fatigue. However, one group of medic...
Fatigue is a frequent and disabling symptom in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The pathophysiology of this sign is not fully understood. Some data suggest that the fatigue is associated with sleep disorders. The aim of this study is to determine the polysomnographic parameters in MS patients with fatigue in comparison to MS patients without fatigue.
