Bottom Line: A new study assesses chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy in 121 long-term survivors of childhood cancer to detail clinical, functional, neurophysiological and patient-reported outcomes of the condition.
Why The Research Is Interesting: Childhood and adolescent cancer survival rates have improved and it's important to understand the long-term effect of cancer treatment. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a potentially long-lasting adverse effect of chemotherapy agents that can be toxic to peripheral nerves.
