Trial NCT04888988

Testing the Effects of Exercise on Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy

This phase II trial studies whether using exercise is better than the usual approach for
treating chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). CIPN occurs when chemotherapy
damages the nerves communicating between the brain, spinal cord, and the rest of the body.
The usual approach for treating CIPN is treatment with drugs that help reduce symptoms of
other types of neuropathy (for example, from diabetes). However, these drugs do not treat all
symptoms of CIPN. Exercise may help to reduce CIPN symptoms.
