 (submitted: October 28, 2019)
  • Prevention of sensory oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy (OIPN) response (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment ]
    Will be measured using 6 individual Quality of Life Questionnaire - Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy 20 (QLQ-CIPN20) questions that quantify numbness, tingling, and pain in the fingers (or hands) and toes (or feet). For each of the 6 individual questions, patients are asked to select 1 of 4 choices regarding how each of the sensory symptoms had affected them during the preceding week: 1 = Not at all, 2 = A little, 3 = Quite a bit, and 4 = Very much. Response will be defined as a patient reporting a highest score of ≤ 2 at any time during oxaliplatin exposure, including 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment without discontinuing the study due to sensory oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy. The proportion of responders within each arm will be estimated by the number of responders divided by the total number of evaluable patients. Two-sided 90% exact confidence intervals for the true response proportion will be calculated according to the approach of Clopper and Pearson.
  • Prevention of sensory oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy (OIPN) response (Phase III) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment ]
    Will be measured using 6 individual Quality of Life Questionnaire - Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy 20 (QLQ-CIPN20) questions that quantify numbness, tingling, and pain in the distal extremities. For each of the 6 questions, patients are asked to select 1 of 4 choices regarding how each of the sensory symptoms had affected them during the preceding week: 1=Not at all, 2=A little, 3=Quite a bit, and 4=Very much. Response will be defined as a patient reporting a highest score of ≤ 2 at any time during oxaliplatin exposure, including 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment without discontinuing the study due to sensory OIPN. The analysis population is defined as all randomized patients who received at least 1 dose of oxaliplatin and have completed the 6 QLQCIPN20 sensory symptom items on at least 1 occasion during oxaliplatin treatment, including 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment. The Fisher exact test will be used for a between-arm comparison of the proportion of responders.
  • Chronic neuropathic pain response (Phase III) [ Time Frame: Up to 1 month after oxaliplatin treatment ]
    Response will be defined as a 7-day average of chronic neuropathic pain (on the average) ≤ 3 on a 0 (no pain) to 10 (pain as bad as you can imagine) scale 1 month after oxaliplatin treatment, which is obtained from the 7-day chronic neuropathy pain diary. The analysis population is defined as all randomized patients who received at least 1 dose of oxaliplatin and have completed the 7-day chronic neuropathy pain diary on at least 3 of the 7 days 1 month after the last oxaliplatin dose. The Fisher exact test will be used for a between-arm comparison of the proportion of responders.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Duloxetine to Prevent Oxaliplatin-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in Patients With Stage II-III Colorectal Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE Duloxetine to Prevent Oxaliplatin-Induced Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Phase II to Phase III Study
Brief Summary This phase II/III trial studies the best dose of duloxetine and how well it works in preventing pain, tingling, and numbness (peripheral neuropathy) caused by treatment with oxaliplatin in patients with stage II-III colorectal cancer. Duloxetine increases the amount of certain chemicals in the brain that help relieve depression and pain. Giving duloxetine in patients undergoing treatment with oxaliplatin for colorectal cancer may help prevent peripheral neuropathy.
Detailed Description

The primary and secondary objectives of the study:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the dosage of duloxetine hydrochloride (duloxetine) (30 mg or 60 mg daily) that appears most promising in preventing oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy (OIPN). (Phase II)

II. To demonstrate that the most promising dosage of duloxetine identified in the Phase II component is more effective than placebo at preventing OIPN sensory symptoms. (Phase III)

III. To demonstrate that the most promising dosage of duloxetine identified in the Phase II component is more effective than placebo at preventing oxaliplatin-induced chronic neuropathic pain. (Phase III)

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To characterize toxicity in each arm, including duloxetine side effects of nausea, dry mouth, dizziness, somnolence, fatigue, and insomnia using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version (v) 5.0. (Phase II)

II. To compare the serially measured OIPN total sensory neuropathy scores calculated from the six individual Quality of Life Questionnaire - Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy 20 (QLQ-CIPN20) questions that quantify numbness, tingling, and pain in the fingers (or hands) and toes (or feet), measured on day 1 of each cycle of oxaliplatin treatment and at 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment between the most promising dosage of duloxetine identified in the Phase II component and placebo. (Phase III)

III. To compare the serially measured Brief Pain Inventory Short Form (BPI-SF) patient-reported on the average pain scores, measured on day 1 of each cycle of oxaliplatin treatment and at 1 month post-oxaliplatin treatment between the most promising dosage of duloxetine identified in the Phase II component and placebo.

IV. To characterize toxicity in each arm, including duloxetine side effects of nausea, dry mouth, dizziness, somnolence, fatigue, and insomnia using the CTCAE v 5.0. (Phase III)
