Mindfulness-based intervention is helpful to younger breast cancer survivors
the ONA take:
Researchers from the University of California in Los Angeles randomized younger women (50 years and younger) with early stage breast cancer who had completed cancer treatment to a 6-week Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPS) intervention group or to a wait-list control group.
Outcomes were assessed via questionnaires participants completed before and after the intervention. The results demonstrated that the MAPS intervention led to reductions in perceived stress, depressive symptoms, proinflammatory gene expression, and inflammatory signaling.
Improvements were also seen in secondary outcomes related to fatigue, sleep disturbance, and vasomotor symptoms.
However, the 3-month follow-up assessment revealed the effects on psychological and behavioral measures were not maintained. The authors conclude that brief, mindfulness-based intervention has short-term efficacy for younger breast cancer survivors.
