• Botanicals and Nutrients for Chemotherapy-Neuropathy and Neuropathic Pain

Speaker: Donald Yance. Of the many side effects of drug treatments for cancer, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is one of the most debilitating, affecting up to 70% of patients on chemotherapy. This leads to poor quality of life and often discontinuation of useful anti-cancer treatment. Oxidative stress is a central mediator of apoptosis, neuroinflammation, metabolic disturbances and bioenergetic failure in neurons, and therefore one of the main causes of CIPN. The lecture offers a summary of research on botanical compounds (such as Vinpotecine and Huperzine A), herbs (such as astragalus, hypericum and ginkgo), and nutrients (such as α-lipoic acid, N-acetyl carnitine, and N-acetyl cysteine), which have demonstrated significant positive effects in treating and preventing CIPN in clinical trials in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Also included are a few out-of-the-box pharmaceutical agents that demonstrate protective effects against CIPN, such as Celecoxib and Minoxidil. Specific treatment protocols for taxane and platinum-related CIPN are presented. Catalog number 18ME13
