A Mind-Body Intervention for Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy

2019-12-10 01:21:05 | BioPortfolio


This pilot study will include up to 25 patients with cancer experiencing chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. Patients enrolled in the study will participate in a 10-week QiGong for Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathy program. Patients will be evaluated before and after their program participation. Within 2 weeks before the program start date, patients will be administered an objective neuropathy assessment by a physician or nurse, and will complete questionnaires assessing chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, perceived cognitive functioning, quality of life, and cancer-related symptoms. Patients will repeat these assessments at the end of the last QiGong class and will be asked to provide feedback on the QiGong program as a whole. Self-report questionnaires will also be repeated one week after the last class.

Total duration of subject participation will be 11-13 weeks. Total duration of the study is expected to be approximately 9 months.

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

Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)

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.

Nervous system infections caused by tick-borne spirochetes of the BORRELIA BURGDORFERI GROUP. The disease may affect elements of the central or peripheral nervous system in isolation or in combination. Common clinical manifestations include a lymphocytic meningitis, cranial neuropathy (most often a facial neuropathy), POLYRADICULOPATHY, and a mild loss of memory and other cognitive functions. Less often more extensive inflammation involving the central nervous system (encephalomyelitis) may occur. In the peripheral nervous system, B. burgdorferi infection is associated with mononeuritis multiplex and polyradiculoneuritis. (From J Neurol Sci 1998 Jan 8;153(2):182-91)

Disorder of the peripheral nerves that primarily impair small nerve fibers. The affected small nerve fibers include myelinated A-delta fibers (see A FIBERS) and unmyelinated C FIBERS. Because these small fibers innervate skin and help control autonomic function, their neuropathy presents with neuropathic pain, reduced thermal and pain sensitivity, and autonomic dysfunction (e.g. abnormal sweating or facial flushing). Small fiber neuropathy can be idiopathic or associated with underlying diseases (e.g., AMYLOIDOSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; SARCOIDOSIS; or VASCULITIS).
