Oral Glutamine in the Prevention of Oxaliplatin-induced Neurotoxicity

2014-08-27 03:15:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Primary Objective:

To assess the benefit of glutamine when added to calcium-magnesium on the occurrence of grade 2, 3 and 4 peripheral sensory neuropathy (PSN) related to oxaliplatin with the National Cancer Institute-Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Event (NCI-CTCAE) scale taking into account the time from start of oxaliplatin at which the first event occurred.

Secondary Objective:

To determine cumulative dose of oxaliplatin and time when the first occurrence of grade 2, 3 or 4 PSN.

To determine the incidence of dose-reductions, dose-delays and discontinuations of oxaliplatin due to PSN grade 3 or 4.

To assess effects of glutamine when added to calcium-magnesium on patients-reported outcomes using the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy/Gynecologic Oncology Group-Neurotoxicity 12 items questionnaire (FACT/GOG NTX-12) subscale.

To evaluate the incidence of diarrhea. To determine Progression Free Survival (PFS) in metastatic patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

Asbestos. Fibrous incombustible mineral composed of magnesium and calcium silicates with or without other elements. It is relatively inert chemically and used in thermal insulation and fireproofing. Inhalation of dust causes asbestosis and later lung and gastrointestinal neoplasms.

A salt used to replenish calcium levels, as an acid-producing diuretic, and as an antidote for magnesium poisoning.

Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.
