Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a dose-limiting side effect of certain anti-cancer treatments. How these drugs affect the nerves differs depending on the amount of the drug used, the treatment schedule, the patient’s age and pre-existing issues that can put the patient at risk.
