Animal studies assessing the benefit of adding glutamate/glutamine to chemotherapy treatment have been performed as early as the 1980s. A study published in 1996 indicated that oral glutamate supplementation (500 mg/kg/day) during vincristine chemotherapy significantly improved motor and sensory behavioral signs of peripheral neuropathy without interfering with the antineoplastic drug’s efficacy (Boyle, Wheeler, & Shenfield, 1996). Three years later, the same team investigated the effect of glutamate on Cisplatin-induced and paclitaxel-induced neuropathy and found that glutamate has neuroprotective effects for both animal models and does not interfere with the two drugs’ cytotoxic effect (Boyle, Wheeler, & Shenfield, 1999).

Also, it seems that B vitamin supplementation is useful only in the case of decreased plasma levels, and not routinely as prophylaxis—it is well-known that vitamin B deficiency will lead to neuropathy on its own and preexisting B vitamin deficiencies will worsen CIPN (alcoholism is a known risk factor for CIPN). Although B vitamins have shown good results in diabetic neuropathy, CIPN has an entirely different mechanism. , 2014). One promising area of research in this field, however, is the effect of B vitamins as coadjuvants having shown very promising results in several fundamental stud­ ies.
