Chemotherapeutic neuropathy

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

72 Scopus citations


Peripheral neurotoxicity is a dose-limiting side-effect for a number of effective chemotherapeutic agents, including platinum compounds, taxanes, and vinca alkaloids. New experimental chemotherapy drugs that cause neuropathy include suramin and Dolostatin-10. A better understanding of cellular mechanisms will lead to novel treatment strategies that will protect neurons without decreasing therapeutic efficacy.
