Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) is a dose-limiting side effect of several antineoplastic drugs which significantly reduces patients quality of life. Although different molecular mechanisms have been investigated, CIPN pathobiology has not been clarified yet. It has largely been recognized that Dorsal Root Ganglia are the main targets of chemotherapy and that the longest nerves are the most damaged, together with fast axonal transport. Indeed, this bidirectional cargo-specific transport has a pivotal role in neuronal function and its impairment is involved in several neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases. Literature data demonstrate that, despite different mechanisms of action, all antineoplastic agents impair the axonal trafficking to some extent and the severity of the neuropathy correlates with the degree of damage on this bidirectional transport. In this paper, we will examine the effect of the main old and new chemotherapeutic drug categories on axonal transport, with
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a progressive, enduring, and often irreversible condition featuring pain, numbness, tingling and sensitivity to cold in the hands and feet (sometimes progressing to the arms and legs) that afflicts between 30% and 40% of patients undergoing chemotherapy. Chemotherapy drugs associated with CIPN include thalidomide, the epothilones such as ixabepilone, the vinca alkaloids vincristine and vinblastine, the taxanes paclitaxel and docetaxel, the proteasome inhibitors such as bortezomib, and the platinum-based drugs cisplatin, oxaliplatin and carboplatin. Whether CIPN arises, and to what degree, is determined by the choice of drug, duration of use, the total amount consumed and whether the patient already has peripheral neuropathy. Though the symptoms are mainly sensory - pain, tingling, numbness and temperature sensitivity - in some cases motor nerves are affected, and occasionally, also, the autonomic nervous system. CIPN often follows the first ...
To update the ASCO guideline on the recommended prevention and treatment approaches in the management of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) in adult cancer survivors.An Expert Panel conducted targeted systematic literature reviews to identify new studies.The search strategy identified 257 new references, which led to a full-text review of 87 manuscripts. A total of 3 systematic reviews, 2 with meta-analyses, and 28 primary trials for prevention of CIPN in addition to 14 primary trials related to treatment of established CIPN, are included in this update.The identified data reconfirmed that no agents are recommended for the prevention of CIPN. The use of acetyl-l-carnitine for the prevention of CIPN in patients with cancer should be discouraged. Furthermore, clinicians should assess the appropriateness of dose delaying, dose reduction, substitutions, or stopping chemotherapy in patients who develop intolerable neuropathy and/or functional impairment. Duloxetine is the only agent ...
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), a debilitating major side-effect of malignancy treatment, is definitely seen as a pain and sensory loss at hand and feet. mitochondrial accumulation of p53 in dorsal root ganglia (DRG), spinal cord, and peripheral nerve without evidence for apoptosis. Cisplatin-treatment also reduced mitochondrial membrane potential and lead to abnormal mitochondrial morphology and impaired mitochondrial function in DRG neurons. Pre-treatment with PFT- prevented the early cisplatin-induced increase in mitochondrial p53 and the reduction in mitochondrial membrane potential. Inhibition of the early mitochondrial p53 accumulation by PFT- also prevented the abnormalities buy 936563-96-1 in mitochondrial morphology and mitochondrial bioenergetics (reduced oxygen consumption rate, maximum respiratory capacity, and adenosine triphosphate synthesis) that develop in DRG and peripheral nerve after cisplatin-treatment. Functionally, inhibition of mitochondrial p53 ...
INTRODUCTION: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a prevalent and clinically meaningful side effect of cancer treatment. CIPN is induced by neurotoxic agents, causing severe sensory and/or motor deficits, resulting in disability and poor recovery, reducing patients quality of life and limiting medical therapy. To date, effective treatment options are lacking. Whole-body vibration (WBV) training can attenuate motor and sensory deficits. We are conducting a two-armed, multicentre, assessor-blinded, randomised controlled trial, to investigate the effects of WBV on relevant symptoms of CIPN and determine the training characteristics. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: In this ongoing study, 44 patients who have completed therapy in the past 3 months, with a neurologically confirmed CIPN are assessed before and after a 12-week intervention and follow-up. The intervention group receives WBV twice a week. Exercises are individually tailored according to the initially determined optimal ...
Rapid advances have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disease over the last two decades. Over that period, major developments have also occurred in other fields of medicine, most notably in the management of cancer. Two-thirds of all cancer patients now survive at 5-years post-diagnosis, with over 28 million cancer survivors worldwide.1 As cancer outcomes improve, there has been increased focus on the long-term quality of life in cancer survivors. Not unexpectedly, neurological complications are a prevalent and potentially disabling long-term side effect of cancer treatment. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), in particular, is the dose-limiting toxicity of many chemotherapeutic agents, … ...

The main side effects of vincristine are chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, hyponatremia, constipation, and hair loss. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy can be severe, and may be a reason to reduce or avoid using vincristine. The symptoms of this are progressive and enduring tingling numbness, pain and hypersensitivity to cold, beginning in the hands and feet and sometimes affecting the arms and legs.[9] One of the first symptoms of peripheral neuropathy is foot drop: A person with a family history of foot drop and/or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) should avoid the taking of vincristine.[10]. Accidental injection of vinca alkaloids into the spinal canal (intrathecal administration) is highly dangerous, with a mortality rate approaching 100 percent. The medical literature documents cases of ascending paralysis due to massive encephalopathy and spinal nerve demyelination, accompanied by intractable pain, almost uniformly leading to death. Several patients have survived after ...
Chemotherapy can impact or damage the bodys peripheral nerves.

Paclitaxel is an effective chemotherapeutic agent widely used for the treatment of solid tumors. The major dose-limiting toxicity of paclitaxel is peripheral neuropathy. The mechanisms underlying the development and maintenance of paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy are still unclear, and there are no currently established effective treatments. Accumulating evidence in models of neuropathic pain in which peripheral nerves are lesioned has implicated spinal microglia and chemokines in pain hypersensitivity, but little is know about their roles in chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. In the present study, we investigated the role of CC-chemokine ligand 3 (CCL3) in the spinal cord in the development and maintenance of mechanical allodynia using a rat model of paclitaxel-induced neuropathy. Repeated intravenous administration of paclitaxel induced a marked decrease in paw withdrawal threshold in response to mechanical stimulation (mechanical allodynia). In these rats, the number of microglia in

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a serious side-effect arising in ~400,000 cancer patients yearly and often limits chemotherapy dosage. Pain and other quality of life impairments caused by CIPN are increasing as many forms of cancer become chronic conditions, with an estimated annual cost of ~$2.5 billion dollars (NCI Directors Consensus Workshop, June 2011). It has been assumed that as target-specific therapies were discovered, the off-target effect of peripheral neuropathy would lessen. However, as specific mechanism-based therapies (e.g. proteasome and Jak-2 inhibitors) have been introduced, the incidence of painful, chronic neuropathy has persisted at 30-40% of treated patients. Approaches to limit the impact of CIPN include prevention and symptomatic treatment of neuropathic pain. Preventive strategies are complicated by the risk that protection from CIPN may reduce the primary cancer cell killing effect of a drug. Symptomatic ...

Impaired physical function due to chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) symptoms may lead to diminished quality of life. However, even with the knowledge of the effects of CIPN on physical function, clinicians infrequently assess and manage CIPN. Interventions that prioritize the early identification of CIPN to provide prompt treatment may reduce the impact of CIPN on physical function. The purpose of this paper is to compare self-reported physical function in individuals receiving neurotoxic chemotherapy between Electronic Symptom Assessment-Cancer (ESRA-C) intervention group (e.g., opportunity for symptom screening, self-care recommendations, communication coaching, and symptom tracking) and control group participants (i.e., electronic assessment alone). Secondary outcomes include pain intensity, sensory/motor CIPN, depression, fatigue, and insomnia. The data used in this paper are a subset of a randomized controlled trial that examined the impact of the ESRA-C intervention on symptom
Background: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a dose-limiting and disabling side effect of taxane anticancer agents. We prospectively evaluated the efficacy of cryotherapy for CIPN prevention. Methods: Breast cancer patients treated weekly with paclitaxel (80 mg/m2 for one hour) wore frozen gloves and socks on the dominant side for 90 minutes, including the entire duration of drug infusion. Symptoms on the treated sides were compared with those on the untreated (nondominant) sides. The primary end point was CIPN incidence assessed by changes in tactile sensitivity from pretreatment baseline in a monofilament test at a cumulative dose of 960 mg/m2. We also assessed thermosensory deficits, subjective symptoms (Patient Neuropathy Questionnaire [PNQ]), manipulative dexterity, and the time to events and hazard ratio by PNQ. All statistical tests were two-sided. Results: Among the 40 patients, four did not reach the cumulative dose (due to the occurrence of pneumonia, severe ...
BACKGROUND: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common and clinically relevant side effect of chemotherapy. Approximately 50% of all leukemia, lymphoma, colorectal- and breast cancer patients are affected. CIPN is induced by neurotoxic chemotherapeutic agents and can manifest with sensory and/or motor deficits. It is associated with significant disability and poor recovery. Common symptoms include pain, altered sensation, reduced or absent reflexes, muscle weakness, reduced balance control and insecure gait. These symptoms not only affect activities of daily living, subsequently reducing patients quality of life, they have far more become a decisive limiting factor for medical therapy, causing treatment delays, dose reductions, or even discontinuation of therapy, which can affect the outcome and compromise survival. To date, CIPN cannot be prevented and its occurrence presents a diagnostic dilemma since approved and effective treatment options are lacking. Promising results ...

Oxaliplatin, the third-generation platinum compound, has evolved as one of the most important therapeutic agents in colorectal cancer chemotherapy. The main limiting factor in oxaliplatin treatment is painful neuropathy that is difficult to treat. This side effect has been studied for several years, but its full mechanism is still inconclusive, and effective treatment does not exist. Data suggest that oxaliplatins initial neurotoxic effect is peripheral and oxidative stress-dependent. A spinal target is also suggested in its mechanism of action. The flavonoids rutin and quercetin have been described as cell-protecting agents because of their antioxidant, antinociceptive, and anti-inflammatory actions. We proposed a preventive effect of these agents on oxaliplatin-induced painful peripheral neuropathy based on their antioxidant properties. Oxaliplatin (1 mg/kg, i.v.) was injected in male Swiss mice, twice a week (total of nine injections). The development of sensory alterations, such as thermal and

Rieger conducted her research in zebrafish exposed to paclitaxel, a chemotherapeutic agent used for ovarian, breast, lung, pancreatic and other cancers. Paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy affects the majority of treated patients; however, those who are most severely affected (about 30 percent) have to terminate chemotherapy or reduce the dose because of this condition, which can impact cancer survival.. Rieger used zebrafish larvae to model peripheral neuropathy because the embryos develop rapidly and because the larval fish are translucent, making them ideal for studying the progression of nerve degeneration in live animals.. Riegers research showed that paclitaxel induces the degeneration of sensory nerve endings by damaging the outer layer of the skin, or epidermis. The epidermis is innervated by free sensory nerve endings that establish direct contact with skin cells. Her research showed that degeneration is caused by perturbations in the epidermis due to an increase in ...
Peripheral neuropathies are common and affect almost eight percent of the population over age 55. New diagnostic and management options make rational therapies for PN increasingly possible.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth 2B peripheral sensory neuropathy (CMT2B) is a debilitating autosomal dominant hereditary sensory neuropathy. Patients with this disease lose pain sensation and frequently need amputation. Axonal dysfunction and degeneration of peripheral sensory neurons is a major clinical manifestation of CMT2B. However, the cellular and molecular pathogenic mechanisms remain undefined. CMT2B is caused by missense point mutations (L129F, K157N, N161T/I, V162M) in Rab7 GTPase. Strong evidence suggests that the Rab7 mutation(s) enhances the cellular levels of activated Rab7 proteins, thus resulting in increased lysosomal activity and autophagy. As a consequence, trafficking and signaling of neurotrophic factors such as nerve growth factor (NGF) in the long axons of peripheral sensory neurons are particularly vulnerable to premature degradation.

We conducted a GWAS of paclitaxel-induced cytotoxicity in LCLs and showed significant enrichment of the top cytotoxicity-associated SNPs in a clinical GWAS of paclitaxel-induced sensory peripheral neuropathy in patients with breast cancer. This robust enrichment shows that susceptibilities to increased cytotoxicity in LCLs and sensory peripheral neuropathy in patients with breast cancer likely have some genetic mechanisms in common and supports the role of LCLs as a preclinical model for paclitaxel toxicity studies. Furthermore, the top SNPs that overlap between the 2 studies were enriched for eQTLs. This eQTL enrichment indicates that SNPs associated with paclitaxel-induced toxicity phenotypes may be functioning through gene regulatory mechanisms. Interestingly, neither GWAS alone was enriched for eQTLs. Thus, our integration method may be reducing noise and revealing important functional SNPs. An enrichment of eQTLs has previously been shown in SNPs associated with 6 other chemotherapeutic ...
Polyneuropathy is a common peripheral nerve disorder that often has a well known cause such as diabetes, chronic renal disease, alcohol abuse, vitamin deficiency, hypothyroidism, or use of toxic medication. Elderly people are more often affected, but the differentiation from signs of normal ageing can be difficult. It is important ... read more to diagnose a polyneuropathy and establish the cause at an early stage, because treatment can ameliorate symptoms and prevent progression. Because of the ageing population, the number of people affected by a polyneuropathy can be expected to increase. This thesis deals with questions regarding the efficient work-up and treatment strategies for chronic axonal polyneuropathy. A succinct description of the main study results is as follows. In about 25% of healthy elderly people older than 60 years the vibration sense at the big toes or ankles and the ankle jerks can be absent, and this should be taken into account when developing a clinical diagnostic ...
Peripheral neuropathy may be either inherited or acquired. Causes of acquired peripheral neuropathy include physical injury (trauma) to a nerve, tumors, toxins, autoimmune responses, nutritional deficiencies, alcoholism, and vascular and metabolic disorders. Acquired peripheral neuropathies are grouped into three broad categories: those caused by systemic disease, those caused by trauma from external agents, and those caused by infections or autoimmune disorders affecting nerve tissue. One example of an acquired peripheral neuropathy is trigeminal neuralgia (also known as tic douloureux), in which damage to the trigeminal nerve (the large nerve of the head and face) causes episodic attacks of excruciating, lightning-like pain on one side of the face. In some cases, the cause is an earlier viral infection, pressure on the nerve from a tumor or swollen blood vessel, or, infrequently, multiple sclerosis. In many cases, however, a specific cause cannot be identified. Doctors usually refer to ...

The Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density (ENFD) test is an objective method of documenting small fiber peripheral neuropathy by quantifying the terminal branches of peripheral nerves within the epidermis. The test is highly specific and sufficiently sensitive with 97% of accuracy rate. The test is recommended to perform when patients experience the following symptoms: pain and abnormal sensation (burning, prickling, shooting), as well as numbness, tightness, coldness in foot/ankle areas.. The common causes of small fiber peripheral neuropathy are: diabetes, types I & II; HIV; vibratory trauma; amyloidosis / monoclonal gammopathy; alcohol abuse; pharmacologic toxins (metronidazole); solvent exposure, and idiopathic neuropathy, when the cause cant be determined, once thought to represent as much as half of all cases.. The ENFD test can also be used to predict the small nerve fiber peripheral neuropathy.. A small 3×3 mm skin biopsy is used for providing diagnostic information on small nerve fibers. The ...

Global Markets Directs, Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy - Pipeline Review, H1 2020, provides an overview of the Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy includes a wide range of diseases affecting millions around the world, and many of these diseases have unknown etiology. Peripheral neuropathy in diabetes represents a large proportion of peripheral neuropathies. Nerve damage can also be caused by trauma. Peripheral neuropathies are a significant clinical problem and efficient treatments are largely lacking. In the case of a transected nerve, different methods have been used to repair or reconstruct the nerve, including the use of nerve conduits, but functional recovery is usually poor.. Autophagy, a cellular mechanism that recycles damaged proteins, is impaired in the brain in many neurodegenerative diseases affecting animals and humans. No research, however, has investigated the presence of autophagy in the human peripheral nervous system. In this study, I present the first structural evidence of autophagy in human peripheral nerves. I also show that the density of autophagy structures is higher in peripheral nerves of ...

Through the presentation of didactic material and cases of varying complexity, faculty will facilitate a discussion of the pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, diagnostic evaluation, and therapy of these conditions. Part I will focus more heavily on conditions that impact the autonomic nervous system; Part II will focus more heavily on conditions that impact the somatic or sensory nervous system. Both parts will discuss conditions that may impact the sensory and autonomic small fibers simultaneously. This program complements C136: Small Fiber Neuropathies: Sensory, Autonomic, and Both II: Focus on Sensory Nervous System, but covers independent topics ...
Jinmaitong (JMT), a compound prescription of traditional Chinese medicine, has long been used as a therapy for diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). However, the neuroprotective mechanisms of JMT and its effect on gut microbiota remained unknown. Here, we examined the effects of JMT on behavior, pathomorphology and gut microbiota in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced DPN rats. Compared to distilled water administration, JMT reversed decreases in mechanical withdraw threshold and intraepidermal nerve fiber density, improved neurological morphology of sciatic nerves, increased serum neuregulin 1 (NRG1) level and contactin-associated protein (Caspr)-positive paranodes, and decreased amyloid precursor protein (APP) accumulation in DPN rats. More importantly, JMT enriched nine species of the gut microbiota of DPN rats, helping to prevent dysbiosis. Among these species, p_Actinobacteria, p_Proteobacteria and c_Actinobacteria were negatively correlated with DPN phenotypes and positively correlated with serum

Kinematic alterations in joint angle and spatiotemporal parameters of gait have also been frequently observed in participants with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). Diabetic peripheral neuropathy leads to various microvascular and macrovascular complications of the foot in type 2 diabetes mellitus. There is a gap in the literature for biomechanical evaluation and assessment of type 2 diabetes mellitus with DPN in the Indian population. We sought to assess and determine the biomechanical changes, including kinetics and kinematics, of the foot in DPN. METHODS: This cross-sectional ...
Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) is the most common complication of diabetes, and often presents as a distal, symmetric, sensorimotor neuropathy. In the United States, 26.8 million people are affected by diabetes; by the year 2030, that number is predicted to increase to approximately 35.9 million people.. In the U.S. alone, the annual total direct medical and treatment costs of diabetes were an estimated $44 billion in 1997, representing 5.8 percent of total personal healthcare expenditures during that year. When it comes to diabetic peripheral neuropathy and its complications, management is resource intensive and long-term, accounting for a large proportion of this total expenditure. In 2001, the total annual cost of diabetic peripheral neuropathy and its complications in the U.S. was estimated to be between $4.6 and $13.7 billion. Up to 27 percent of the direct medical cost of diabetes may be attributed to diabetic peripheral neuropathy.. More than half of patients who have type 1 or 2 ...
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy doesnt emerge overnight. Instead, it usually develops slowly and worsens over time. Some patients have this condition long before they are diagnosed with diabetes. Having diabetes for several years may increase the likelihood of having diabetic neuropathy.. The loss of sensation and other problems associated with nerve damage make a patient prone to developing skin ulcers (open sores) that can become infected and may not heal. This serious complication of diabetes can lead to loss of a foot, a leg, or even a life.. Causes ...

Results: We identified 53 patients who had both ultrasound and MRI of whom 46 (87%) had nerve pathology diagnosed by surgical (n = 39) or clinical/electrodiagnostic (n = 14) evaluation. Ultrasound detected the diagnosed nerve pathology (true positive) more often than MRI (43/46 vs 31/46, p , 0.001). Nerve pathology was correctly excluded (true negative) with equal frequency by MRI and ultrasound (both 6/7). In 25% (13/53), ultrasound was accurate (true positive or true negative) when MRI was not. These pathologies were typically (10/13) long (,2 cm) and only occasionally (2/13) outside the MRI field of view. MRI missed multifocal pathology identified with ultrasound in 6 of 7 patients, often (5/7) because pathology was outside the MRI field of view. ...
