Clinical Trial Summary

This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of photobiomodulation therapy (PBM) in the management of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). Therefore, the hypothesis is that PBM can reduce the severity of CIPN in cancer patients, increasing the patient's quality of life.


Clinical Trial Description

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is one of the common complications of cancer treatment and involves paresthesia, numbness and/or burning pain in distal limbs. This condition has a high health impact because it is associated with psychological distress, fall risk, and poor sleep quality. Furthermore, it impairs patients' daily activities and thereby decreases their quality of life. The overall incidence of CIPN is approximately 68% in the first month after chemotherapy. The available evidence for preventive and therapeutic options for CIPN is limited. Therefore, only symptom management based on pharmacological and/or physical therapy is applied with limited success. Our research group showed that photobiomodulation (PBM) has the potential to reduce the development of CIPN in breast cancer patients (unpublished data). PBM uses visible and/or (near)-infrared light at a low power produced by laser diodes or light-emitting diodes (LED) to stimulate tissue repair and reduce inflammation and (neuropathic) pain. The aim of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of PBM in the management of CIPN in general. ;
