Sponsor: NIH
Enrolling: Male and Female Patients
IRB Number: AAAU6633
U.S. Govt. ID: NCT05642611

Additional Study Information: The purpose of this study is to learn which of the following 3 study approaches is the most helpful to prevent peripheral neuropathy caused by taxane chemotherapy. These approaches will use a study device, called the Paxman Limb Cryocompression System, made of wraps that cool and/or compress your arms and legs. The study will test which of the following combinations of cooling and/or compression to your arms and legs is better at preventing peripheral neuropathy: cryocompression (cooling plus moderate and low pressure to your arms and legs), continuous compression (moderate, steady pressure to your arms and legs), low cyclic compression (low pressure that comes and goes to your arms and legs). Cancers include: breast cancer, lung cancer, and uterine cancer.
