Chemotherapy induced neuropathic pain treated with neuroprotectant palmitoylethanolamide

What is it about?

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) can be and should be considered to protect nerves from neuropathy induced by chemotherapy, and has been proven to reduce neuropathic pain.

Why is it important?

There are no neuroprotectants available, and PEA is the first kid on the block, also useful as an analgesic against neuropathic pain.
