Cases (399) and a corresponding number of controls, matched for age and sex, were included, the controls being selected from patients undergoing functional re-education for injuries or trauma which reduced their mobility. A dietary history(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to investigate the quality of life (QOL) of patients enrolled onto the High-Dose Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer Study Group trial (PEGASE 02), a French pilot multicenter trial of the treatment of inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) aimed at evaluating (1) toxicity and feasibility of sequential high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) with(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility and acceptability of a repeated measurement of 5 major side effects (pain, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, and fatigue) experienced by patients during an entire course of chemotherapy. Forty-nine inpatients receiving intravenous chemotherapy in the Medical Oncology Department of the Institut(More)
Recent developments in genetics are likely to exacerbate the ethical issues in clinical practice, especially with regard to privacy and disclosure of genetic information. To evaluate the behaviour of patients with respect to transmitting carrier information, we undertook a survey of 283 families with a balanced chromosomal rearrangement as a model. In these(More)
In this geographically based study the findings on 158 abnormal fetuses, primarily diagnosed by routine antenatal ultrasound, are correlated with the results of the examinations subsequently carried out by a fetopathologist and a clinical geneticist. Ninety fetuses (57%) had a single malformation, 66 were polymalformed (42%) and 2 had no malformations. In(More)
The aim of this study was to compare anxiety, pain and discomfort of cancer patients submitted to either peripheral blood progenitor cell collection (PBPCC) or bone marrow harvest (BMH). Patients, randomized (7/1993-2/1994), in view of autograft, to receive the first procedure or the second one, completed self-administered questionnaires. Anxiety was(More)
Peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) allogeneic transplantation is an innovative medical procedure which has many advantages in comparison with bone marrow (BM) transplantation, but it involves administering haematopoietic growth factors (HGFs) to donors, the long-term physiological effects of which have not yet been established. The main aim of the present(More)
The article discusses the proposal of some health economists to use the "cost per QALY (quality-adjusted-life year)" ratio as an universal indicator for economic assessment of medical interventions, in the so-called "cost-utility" analyses. Authors argue that QALYs are not a straightforward application of expected utility theory, which is the standard(More)
A study of factors influencing genetic counseling attendance rate has been conducted in the Bouches-du-Rhône area, in the south of France. In this area, a birth defects monitoring system (Eurocat n. 22) annually covers 23,000 births. All the genetic services are delivered by only one genetic center located in Marseilles, and the data collected are(More)
Les mesures de la qualité de vie sont susceptibles de modifier la pratique des cliniciens impliqués dans le domaine du cancer, car elles les aident à choisir un traitement ou une procédure médicale en prenant en compte le point de vue des patients, à mieux informer leurs malades à partir des expériences acquises par d’autres, à les faire accéder au(More)
