*Recent studies (2012) indicate mixed results using acetyl –l-acetly for chemotherapy induced neuropathy. A study in the US showed no improvement for chemo-induced neuropathy-with a slight worsening of symptoms-whereas a similar study in China indicated improvement of neuropathy symptoms. The most side effects in the study were gastrointestinal upset and skin allergies.
