Effects of Nutrition and Exercise on Chemotherapy Induced Neuropathy

Research Question:
What are the effects of exercise and nutrition interventions during chemotherapy on chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN).

Basic Study Information

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a highly prevalent and severe side-effect of taxane chemotherapy, often used to treat breast cancer. Unfortunately there are very limited treatments for CIPN. This is a phase II randomized controlled trial to test the preliminary efficacy of exercise vs. nutrition education on CIPN, to systematically investigate the potential roles of inflammation and interoception, and to obtain data with a more accurate effect size to inform a future study.
