Have you had breast cancer and completed chemotherapy within the past 3 months to 5 years? Do you experience any symptoms in fingers/hands and toes/feet (e.g. pain, numbness, tingling and burning)?

As part of our research into chemotherapy-induced hand and arm pain, we are offering a FREE and thorough clinical assessment. This assessment includes: patient interview and clinical tests, nerve conduction assessment, MRI and ultrasound scans of the nerves in your arms and a scan of your eye.

PINC is a research project that aims to better understand the role the nervous system in the development of neuropathy in women who underwent breast cancer treatment. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common side effects of breast cancer treatments. Those who have chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy may experience neuropathic pain, numbness, tingling sensations and weakness in their fingers/hands and feet/toes. We do not fully understand yet who develops it and why, and how it is best prevented or managed.

We hope this study will contribute to more effective prevention and management of neuropathic pain in the future. You will receive a $60 gift voucher to compensate for your time and travel once you completed the study.

To learn more about the study and to register your interest, visit the project website.
