CIPN is a very common adverse effect of chemotherapy drugs used in the treatment of cancer such as antitubulins, immunomodulatory agents, or platinum analogs for example. Chemotherapy can damage peripheral nerves and cause a host of adverse effects that range from milder effects such as such as pain, burning, loss of sensation, or function of the extremities, to life threatening effects such as respiratory difficulties, paralysis, and organ failure for example.
