    Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors for the management of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
    Ann Pharmacother 2014 May 27;48(5):626-32. Epub 2014 Feb 27.
    Virginia Commonwealth University Health System/Medical College of Virginia Hospitals, Richmond, VA, USA.
    Objective: To review the literature evaluating serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN).

    Data Sources: A PubMed search (1966-January 2014) was performed using the key terms serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, desvenlafaxine, duloxetine, milnacipran, venlafaxine, chemotherapy, and peripheral neuropathy. Bibliographies of select articles were examined for additional references and abstracts. Read More
    Predictors of the usefulness of duloxetine for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.

    Departments of Pain Treatment and Palliative Care Unit, University Hospital, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.
    Duloxetine is an effective therapeutic agent for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). However, predictors of duloxetine response have not been adequately explored. Therefore, this retrospective study was performed to identify predictive factors of duloxetine response in CIPN patients to guide future strategies to improve the quality of life of patients undergoing chemotherapy.

    Prevention and treatment of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
    Am J Health Syst Pharm 2014 Jan;71(1):19-25
    Jennifer Piccolo, Pharm.D., is Clinical Oncology Pharmacist, Froedert and The Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Jill M. Kolesar, Pharm.D., BCPS, FCCP, is Professor of Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Director, 3P Analytical Laboratory, University of Wisconsin Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center, Madison.
    Purpose: The prevention and treatment of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) are reviewed.

    Summary: A number of agents, including amifostine, glutathione, and vitamin E, were evaluated as prevention strategies for CIPN, with no agent demonstrating efficacy. Calcium and magnesium are effective for the prevention of CIPN; however, concerns regarding reduced chemotherapy efficacy linger. Read More
    Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in patients treated with taxanes and platinum derivatives.
    Acta Oncol 2015 May 9;54(5):587-91. Epub 2015 Mar 9.
    Department of Oncology, Odense University Hospital, Institute of Clinical Research, University of Southern Denmark , Denmark.
    Background: Chemotherapy with taxanes and platinum compounds has resulted in substantial survival benefits both in adjuvant and metastatic settings. However, as a side effect, such chemotherapy may cause peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) which may result in discontinuation of treatment, and if it persists after treatment completion, has a negative impact on quality of life (QoL).

    Results: Symptoms of CIPN are sensory, like pain, numbness, and tingling, typically located in the hands and feet. Read More
