    Does Parental Migration Affect Left-Behind Children’s Social Anxiety? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

    Yao Wang1, Xiaojiao Li2, Panpan Yang1,*, Zengyan Yu1,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.5, pp. 335-343, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2024.048483

    Abstract Social anxiety is a common psychological problem among left-behind children (LBC) and has been a popular issue in recent years. Children with higher levels of social anxiety have more emotional and behavioral problems and are prone to negative life events. Although several studies have explored the differences in social anxiety between LBC and non-left-behind children (N-LBC), the findings have not been consistent. In this study, a systematic review and meta-analysis method was used, with 411 papers retrieved on October 01, 2023, from Pubmed, Embase, Web of Science, and Chinese databases (CNKI, VIP, and Wanfang) (PROSPERO… More >

    Molecularly Targeted Drugs Plus Radiotherapy and Temozolomide Treatment for Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma: A Meta-Analysis and Systematic Review

    Jiahao Su*, Meiqin Cai*, Wensheng Li*, Bo Hou, Haiyong He, Cong Ling,Tengchao Huang, Huijiao Liu, Ying Guo*

    Oncology Research, Vol.24, No.2, pp. 117-128, 2016, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14612603423511

    Abstract Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common primary malignant brain tumor that nearly always results in a bad prognosis. Temozolomide plus radiotherapy (TEM+RAD) is the most common treatment for newly diagnosed GBM. With the development of molecularly targeted drugs, several clinical trials were reported; however, the efficacy of the treatment remains controversial. So we attempted to measure the dose of the molecularly targeted drug that could improve the prognosis of those patients. The appropriate electronic databases (PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library) were searched for relevant studies. A meta-analysis was performed after determining which studies… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.9, pp. 1567-1578, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504017X14897173032733

    Abstract Capecitabine has consistently demonstrated high efficacy and acceptable tolerability in salvage chemotherapy for advanced breast cancer. However, there remains no consensus on its role in adjuvant chemotherapy for early breast cancer (EBC). To estimate the value of capecitabine-based combination adjuvant treatment in EBC, eight randomized controlled trials with 14,072 participants were analyzed. The efficacy and safety outcomes included disease-free survival (DFS), overall survival (OS), relapse, breast cancer-specific survival (BCSS), and grades 3–5 adverse events. Capecitabine-based combination adjuvant chemotherapy demonstrated a 16% increase in BCSS (HR = 0.84, 95% CI = 0.71–0.98, p = 0.03) in the… More >

    Oncology Research, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 231-239, 2018, DOI:10.3727/096504017X15051752095738

    Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a worldwide health threat with increasing incidence and a high mortality rate. Most HCC patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage and are unable to undergo potential curative surgery. Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) and transcatheter arterial chemotherapy infusion (TACI) are two of the main palliative treatments for advanced HCC patients. The clinical efficacy and safety of TACE and TACI are controversial. For this reason, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to summarize the current evidence. We searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and cohort studies that compared the clinical outcomes… More >

    Arterial Duct Stenting Versus Modified Blalock-Taussig Shunt in Patient with Ductal-Dependent Pulmonary Circulation: Systematic Review & Meta-Analysis

    Ketut Putu Yasa1,2,*, Nyoman Satria Sadu Bhaskara2, Putu Febry Krisna Pertiwi2

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.19, No.2, pp. 139-156, 2024, DOI:10.32604/chd.2024.050348

    Abstract Objective: Patients with ductal-dependent pulmonary circulation require alternative blood flow to provide and maintain adequate oxygenation. Modified Blalock-Taussig Shunt (MBTS) has been the standard for providing such a result. Currently, less invasive methods such as Arterial Duct (AD) stenting have been performed as alternatives. This study aims to compare the outcome of AD stenting and MBTS. Method: Systematic research was performed in online databases using the PRISMA protocol. The outcomes measured were 30-day mortality, complication, unplanned intervention, oxygen saturation, duration of hospital, and ICU length of stay.

    The Relationship between Students’ Anxiety and Internet Use Disorders: A Meta-Analysis

    Yichi Zhang#, Yuxiang Feng#, Shan Hu*, Huiyong Fan*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.12, pp. 1323-1341, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.029096

    Abstract Theoretical models have predicted a positive association between anxiety and Internet use disorders. However, the findings of previous studies are conflicting, with some reporting a positive association and others proposing no relationship between the two. To explore the true relationship between the two and analyze the reasons for the differences, 100 primary studies involving 108,539 subjects were entered into a meta-analysis. The results showed that (1) there was a significant positive correlation between students’ anxiety and Internet use disorder (r = 0.330); (2) the moderating effect of anxiety type was significant. (3) The moderating effects of More >

    Relationship between Parent-Child Attachment and Problem Behaviors among Chinese Firstborn Children in Family Transitions: A Meta-Analysis

    Cong Liu1, Mohd Nazri Abdul Rahman1,*, Nur Eva2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.11, pp. 1161-1172, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.030324

    Abstract The implementation of China’s three-child fertility policy has led to a notable increase in multiple-child families. Notably, firstborn children experience a significant transition from being an only child to a non-only child. This transition is associated with problematic behaviors, affecting their social adjustment, sibling relationships, and family harmony. Although several studies have examined the relationship between parent-child attachment and problem behaviors exhibited by firstborn children during family transitions, the findings have been inconsistent. Hence, a meta-analytic study was undertaken to elucidate the inconsistencies in this relationship and explore the moderating factors that may contribute to… More >
