    Prostate Cancer Communication-Fall Issue

    It has been very hard to prevent and treat CIPN because a
    variety of drugs and supplements including glutamine, vitamin
    E, and glutathione have been disappointing. A recent study
    of a topical combination of the drugs baclofen, amitriptyline,
    and ketamine (which some doctors actually recommend) for
    treating CIPN showed some benefi t for sensory and motor
    neuropathy. Another study showed some promise for a
    patient-specifi c electro stimulation device (MC5-A Calmare;
    Competitive Technologies, Wakefi eld, RI). Th is Calmare®
    medical device is being further tested
    currently. Th is device sends a no-pain message to the nerve
    from surface electrodes applied to the skin in the area of the
    patient’s pain. Next, the perception of pain is apparently
    cancelled when the no-pain message replaces that of pain, by
    utilizing the same pathway through the surface electrodes. If it
    sounds a little confusing well it is but think of it like a message
    distorting device. Th e average treatment time is from 20-
    60 minutes. It sounds interesting and I really hope it works
    because CIPN needs help now!
