Feasibility Study for Electroacupuncture for Chemotherapy- Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN)

2019-09-23 04:51:44 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the study is to determine the validity of a point-of-care nerve conduction device (NeuroMetrix) and Rydel-Seiffer tuning fork in assessing the level of peripheral neuropathy in patients with chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common, persistent toxicity among patients who receive chemotherapy. It is characterized by a variety of sensory and motor symptoms such as numbness, tingling, reduced sense of touch, reduced proprioception (awareness of your limb and body position in space), pain, weakness, balance disturbances, and deficits in motor skills.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

FEVER accompanied by a significant reduction in NEUTROPHIL count associated with CHEMOTHERAPY.

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.

Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.

Initial drug treatment designed to bring about REMISSION INDUCTION. It is typically a short-term and high-dose drug treatment that is followed by CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY and then MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.

A syndrome characterized by inflammation in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the ASCENDING COLON. It is observed in cancer patients with CHEMOTHERAPY-induced NEUTROPENIA or in other immunocompromised individuals (IMMUNOCOMPROMISED HOST).
