There is one clinical trial.
This study will examine DNA from Gastrointestinal Tract of cancer patients treated with oxaliplatin to look for a variation (mutation) of the ABCG2 gene that may lead to drug-induced peripheral neuropathy in certain patients. The DNA will be extracted from patients' blood samples and are analyzed for the ABCG2 single nucleotide polymorphism (G34A - rs2231137 and A/A -rs3114018 genotypes) and correlated with peripheral neuropathy grades.

Description: Peripheral Neuropathy Toxicity will be assessed every cycle for six months using the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria (NCI-CTCAE). Patients will be assigned to 4 groups according to the grades of neuropathy.Measure: Correlation of single nucleotide polymorphisms of ABCG2 gene (G34A - rs2231137 and A/A -rs3114018 genotypes) with peripheral neuropathy grades, using the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria (NCI-CTCAE) Time: After 6 cycles of chemotherapy (each cycle is15 days), for six months
