Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy can be a major dose-limiting side effect and leave some cancer patients with long-term pain and functional disability. In some cases, the neuropathy can be so severe as to preclude further life-prolonging chemotherapy. It is important to find interventions to reduce such effects while enabling effective chemotherapy dose delivery, improved survival, and good quality of life.
