Introduction QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Stomach adenocarcinoma is the most common form of gastric cancer (95% of the cases).1 • Stomach cancer is a multifactorial disease:diet, hereditary factors, Helicobacter pylori infection are possible causes.2-3 • Tobacco smoking has also been clearly accepted as increasing the risk of stomach cancer.4 1- Crew KD, Neugut AI.

Introduction QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Treatment for gastric cancer often involves surgery, usually a partial or a total gastrectomy (removal of stomach tissue).5 • Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are standard for some stages of stomach cancer.5 5-Ross P, Nicolson M, Cunningham D, Valle J, et al. Prospective randomized trial comparing mitomycin, cisplatin, and protracted venous-infusion fluorouracil (PVI 5-FU) with epirubicin, cisplatin and PVI 5-FU in advanced esophagogastric cancer.

Introduction QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Chemotherapy is the use of chemical agents to stop cancer cells from growing.6 • Chemotherapy is considered a systemic treatment.6 6-Janunger KG, Hafström L, Nygren P, Glimelius B for teha SBU-group.

Introduction QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Radiotherapy uses high energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells.7 • A small dose of radiotherapy may be very helpful to relieve pain.7 7-Kim GE, Shin HS, MD, et al.

Introduction QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • These multiple treatments have different consequences in Quality of Life (QoL) in patients.8 • QoL cannot be yet universally defined8, however there are many attempts to do so. • Schipper et al. proposed: “the functional effect of illness and its consequent therapy upon a patient, as perceived by the patient”.9 8-Spilker B, ed.

Aim QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer ____________________________________________ • To review which instruments were used to measure the QoL in patients with gastric cancer submitted to chemo and radiotherapy. • To summarize QoL measures across studies. ____________________________________________ FMUP/SBIM
Methods QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • The Query used was: ◊ ″Gastric cancer AND (Quality of Life OR Psychology) AND (Radiotherapy OR Chemotherapy)” Literature searches were conducted in Medline. FMUP/SBIM
Limits QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer Publication Date until September 2005. Only items with an abstract. Humans. FMUP/SBIM
Methods QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Inclusion Criteria • More than one participant; • QoL evaluated by the patients; • Patients who had gastric cancer; • Patients submitted to chemo or radiotherapy; • QoL measured with an appropriate instrument. FMUP/SBIM
Methods QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Exclusion criteria • Articles based on mixed diagnostic groupings (in the article these have to be approached separately); • Articles in which QoL was measure but only symptoms were studied; • Articles that referred to patients submitted to a surgery during or before treatment. FMUP/SBIM
Methods QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • Validation Papers • A second search was conducted, to discover if the instruments used in the included articles were valid. To find the validation papers we search the questionnaire title through Google. FMUP/SBIM
Fluxogram QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer
Results QoL after Chemo/Radiotherapy in Gastric Cancer • 116 articles were found; • Due to the application of the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 10 were included and 76 were excluded; • Some of the articles found couldn’t be read and so we don’t have information referred to them; • Only 1 of the included articles didn’t have a validated paper of the instrument.
