  • Purpose of reviewTo review neurologic complications of common and recently developed chemotherapeutic agents, as well as recent research regarding ‘chemobrain’. Recent findingsBortezomib, a new anticancer agent, has a propensity toward causing a largely sensory and reversible peripheral neuropathy. Infusion of magnesium and calcium pre and post-oxaliplatin infusion reduces neuropathy but may interfere with clinical response to oxaliplatin. No other measures currently reduce the incidence or… CONTINUE READING
