Preventive Treatment of Oxaliplatin Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer (POLAR-M)


Brief description of study

This study evaluates the investigational drug PledOx in the prevention of chronic chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) induced by the drug oxaliplatin.

Detailed Study Description

Oxaliplatin, in combination with 5-fluorouracil plus folinate (or capecitabine), has increased survival in stage III colorectal cancer and prolonged life in stage IV patients, but its use is compromised because of severe toxicity. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is the most problematic dose-limiting toxicity of oxaliplatin. No treatments have been clinically proven to prevent CIPN. There is a body of evidence that CIPN is caused by cellular oxidative stress. Clinical and preclinical data suggest that the manganese chelate and superoxide dismutase mimetic mangafodipir (MnDPDP) and calmangafodipir (Ca4Mn(DPDP)5) are efficacious inhibitors of CIPN and other conditions caused by cellular oxidative stress, without interfering negatively with the tumoricidal activity of chemotherapy.
