Taxane-induced peripheral neuropathy (TIPN) caused by paclitaxel is a dose-limiting toxicity. The main symptoms of discomfort are numbness, tingling, and burning sensations in the glove-sock-like distribution of the limbs. At present, there are few effective methods for clinical treatment of TIPN, and there is no widely agreed consensus on effective treatment in the world. Therefore, it is of great clinical significance and practical value to carry out clinical research to explore drugs to relieve TIPN.

Age ≥18 years old and ≤75 years old
It is expected that the standard chemotherapy regimen containing albumin paclitaxel will be used in the adjuvant / neo-adjuvant chemotherapy regimen. The standard scheme includes: a. Albumin paclitaxel adopts a single-week regimen, 125-150mg / m2 for 12 weeks; b. Albumin paclitaxel Take a 3-week regimen, 260 mg / m2, for a total of 4 cycles. The plan must not contain platinum and other types of purple shirt drugs
ECOG score of the patient is ≤1
Expected survival time ≥ 3 months
The function level of main organs must meet the following requirements (no blood transfusion and no use of leukocyte or platelet rising drugs within 2 weeks before screening) Blood routine: neutrophil (ANC) ≥ 1.5x 109 / L; platelet (PLT) ≥ 90x109 / L; hemoglobin (Hb) ≥ 90g / L Blood biochemical total bilirubin (TBIL) ≤ 1.5xULN; alanine aminotransferase (AST) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) not exceeding 2 × ULN; blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine (CR) below 1.5 × ULN
FACT-Ntx score is 44 points in the screening period
Sign the informed consent

Exclusion Criteria

There are any toxic events of the peripheral nervous system before enrollment, including: FACT-Ntx subscale score <44; ≥ 1 level of peripheral toxicity according to the CTCAE version 4.0 scale; all other pathological symptoms or diseases may affect Assessment of adverse neurotoxic effects
Patients receiving other medications may cause similar adverse neurotoxic effects within 4 weeks before treatment with this regimen, or they may also receive neurotoxic medications at the same time. Including paclitaxel or analogues; vinca alkaloids or analogues; platinums or analogues; cytarabine, thalidomide, bortezomib or cabazine; other drugs or treatments may cause peripheral neurotoxicity
Patients with poor overall condition and ECOG score> 1
pregnant or lactating women
Patients who also suffer from other neurological abnormalities cannot accurately record the occurrence and severity of neurotoxicity
The patient is known to be allergic to the test drug or excipient ingredients of these products
Patients with hereditary abnormalities of glucose and lipid metabolism (gangliopathies, such as idiopathic and retinopathy of triad families)
Patients not suitable for ganglioside treatment
Patients with severe concurrent diseases may endanger safety and interfere with scheduled treatment, or the combination of diseases may affect the completion of the study, depending on the judgment of the investigator
Patients with a clear history of neurological or mental disorders, including epilepsy or dementia
