Lifestyle-Related Factors in the Self-Management of Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in Colorectal Cancer: A Systematic Review.

Conclusions. No strong conclusions can be drawn regarding the role of lifestyle-related factors in the management of CIPN in CRC patients. Certain dietary supplements and physical exercise may be beneficial for the management of CIPN, but further research is warranted. PMID: 28400846 [PubMed - in process]

Oxaliplatin is a third-generation platinum analog used for the treatment of solid cancers, in particular as primary and adjuvant treatment of advanced and high-risk colorectal cancer (DCCG, 2015). Neurotoxicity is a frequent and often dose-limiting side effect of oxaliplatin treatment (Gamelin et al., 2002; Argyriou et al., 2013). Oxaliplatin is unique among platinum analogs, as it induces two clinically different types of peripheral neuropathy. One type is a commonly occurring acute neurotoxicity with transient paresthesia, typically triggered by cold exposure, and muscle spasms in the limbs and jaw.

Persistent prevention of oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy using calmangafodipir (PledOx(®)): a placebo-controlled randomised phase II study (PLIANT). Acta Oncol. 2017 Nov 15;:1-10 Authors: Glimelius B, Manojlovic N, Pfeiffer P, Mosidze B, Kurteva G, Karlberg M, Mahalingam D, Buhl Jensen P, Kowalski J, Bengtson M, Nittve M, Näsström J Abstract PURPOSE: Oxaliplatin causes disabling acute and chronic peripheral neuropathy. We explored the preventive effects of calmangafodipir, mimicking the mitochondrial enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase, thereby protecting cells from oxidative...

AbstractThis trial assessed the efficacy of MR309 (a novel selective sigma-1 receptor ligand previously developed as E-52862) in ameliorating oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy (oxaipn). A discontinuous regimen of MR309 (400 mg/day, 5 days per cycle) was tested in patients with colorectal cancer receiving FOLFOX in a phase II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trial. Outcome measures included changes in 24-week quantitative measures of thermal sensitivity and total neuropathy score. In total, 124 patients were randomized (1:1) to MR309 or placebo. Sixty-three (50.8%) patients withdre...

Conclusions“OPTINAB” approach improved PFS2 in these patients and was feasible as majority of the patient tolerated nab-paclitaxel. Although it is a small study, it supports the need for a randomized, prospective study to test the concept of “OPTINAB”.

Oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy (OIPN) is a dose limiting toxicity of oxaliplatin and affects most colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. OIPN is commonly evaluated by patient symptom report, using scales to reflect impairment. They do not discriminate between unique grouping of symptoms and signs, which impedes prompt identification of OIPN.

Here, we report a case of a male patient with a history of metastatic colon cancer and previous chemotherapies. He came to our attention with a peripheral neuropathy that impaired his quality of life and could limit the further line of chemotherapy. We treated the ...
