    Assessment of Cancer-Related Fatigue Expression: Comparing the Expression of Fatigue in Patients with a History of Cancer, Patients with Other Chronic Diseases, and Healthy Individuals

    Evaluation de l’expression de la fatigue liée au cancer : comparant l’expression de la fatigue chez les patients atteints de cancer, chez les patients touchés par d’autres maladies chroniques et chez les individus en bonne santé

    Maria Inês Clara1,2,3,*, Maria Cristina Canavarro2,3, Ana Severina4, Susana Ramos4, Carla Rafael4, Ana Allen Gomes1,2,3

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.18, No.1, pp. 49-57, 2024, DOI:10.32604/po.2023.044320

    Abstract Aims: We aimed to compare cancer survivors’ fatigue expression with that of the general population and examine psychobiological factors associated with fatigue. Procedure: In this quantitative, transversal study, we analyzed clinical and sociodemographic indicators of 389 participants (68.38% females): 148 cancer survivors on active treatment, 55 disease-free survivors, 75 patients with another chronic disease, and 111 healthy individuals. Results: Fatigue was expressed dissimilarly in patients with a previous history of cancer and participants without a history of cancer. Survivors on active treatment reported significantly higher levels of fatigue than the other clinical status groups. Nonetheless, some level of cancer-related fatigue… More >

    Internet Use and Mental Health among Older Adults in China: Beneficial for Those Who Lack of Intergenerational Emotional Support or Suffering from Chronic Diseases?

    Yuxin Wang1,2,*, Jia Shi1,2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.1, pp. 69-80, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.044641

    Abstract In the 21st century, the rapid growth of the Internet has presented a significant avenue for China to respond actively to the aging population and promote the “Healthy China” strategy in an orderly manner. This study uses panel data from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS) to empirically investigate the influence of Internet use on the mental health of older adults, particularly those who lack intergenerational emotional support and suffer from chronic diseases. This study employs a multi-period difference-in-differences (DID) method and a two-stage instrumental variable approach to address the endogenous problem. Results show that Internet use has… More >

    An Intelligent Approach for Accurate Prediction of Chronic Diseases

    S. Kavi Priya*, N. Saranya

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.46, No.2, pp. 2571-2587, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.031761

    Abstract Around the globe, chronic diseases pose a serious hazard to healthcare communities. The majority of the deaths are due to chronic diseases, and it causes burdens across the world. Through analyzing healthcare data and extracting patterns healthcare administrators, victims, and healthcare communities will get an advantage if the diseases are early predicted. The majority of the existing works focused on increasing the accuracy of the techniques but didn’t concentrate on other performance measures. Thus, the proposed work improves the early detection of chronic disease and safeguards the lives of the patients by increasing the specificity and sensitivity of the classifiers… More >

    Wearable Sensors and Internet of Things Integration to Track and Monitor Children Students with Chronic Diseases Using Arduino UNO

    Ali Abdulameer Aldujaili1, Mohammed Dauwed2, Ahmed Meri3,*

    Journal on Internet of Things, Vol.3, No.4, pp. 131-137, 2021, DOI:10.32604/jiot.2021.015994

    Abstract Parents concerns for their children who has a critical health conditions may limit the children movements and live to engage with others peers anytime and anywhere. Thus, in this study aims to propose a framework to help the children who has critical disease to have more activity and engagement with other peers. Additionally, reducing their parents’ concerns by providing monitoring and tracking system to their parents for their children health conditions. However, this study proposed a framework include tracking and monitoring wearable (TMW) device and decision system to alert healthcare providers and parents for any failure in the children health… More >

    Between Chronic Diseases and Geriatric Depression: Mediational Effects of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) Disability Among Older Adults

    Yi Yang1,2,* , Tao Li3

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.4, pp. 249-259, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.014321

    Abstract This study is aimed to explore relations between chronic diseases, activities of daily living (ADLs) disability and depression among older adults, particularly ADLs disability mediational effects on the correlation between chronic diseases and geriatric depression. Records of 5931 participants at age 60 and above from China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS) in 2015 were used as valid samples for data relating to their chronic diseases index, ADLs scale and Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression (CES-D) scale. Our findings confirm that among older adults, 75.9% are afflicted with chronic diseases and 52.5% have ADLs difficulty or disability, and that there… More >

    Ramachandran Vinyagam1, Pradeep Kumar2, Kyung Eun Lee1,3, Baojun Xu4, Muhammad Nurul Matin5,*, Sang Gu Kang1,3,*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.90, No.1, pp. 1-15, 2021, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2020.013388

    Abstract Medicinal herbs are well known and studied over the past millennia in most of the developing countries as a rational means of treatment against various diseases and disorders. Wedelolactone (WDL), a major bioactive compound in Eclipta prostrata L (Eclipta alba L), has been reported with potential benefits in human health against chronic diseases. However, a comprehensive study on WDL pharmacological benefits in various ailments, to the best of our knowledge, is not yet reported. Thereof, the present review provides the recent therapeutic applications in reference to biological and functional activities against major human chronic diseases, including cardiovascular, cancer, diabetes mellitus,… More >
